A dealt four to the royal happens once every 2,825 hands (I'm sure someone will check my math!). It's not THAT rare... I've had that dealt three times in an hour before...

Sometimes not once in a whole weekend.



Isn't it 4*5*47/2,598,960 =~ 1 in 2765? ;)

And actually I goofed earlier too...Aces is going through a much terrible drought than I was initially thinking. It's a 10-cycle drought now (1 in 22,026). I was thinking about the number of "Royal Scares" you see per royal...oops.

And I don't want to imagine bricking this many in a row. I went 4.5 years without converting. Just broke that in September. I didn't count the misses, but it had to be triple digits.

So far in this thread since I've started taking pictures, I'm 0 for 30 in the last 24 days including the four misses after the last one on DSTP and a couple I missed pictures of. This doesn't count the number of misses between that last one and when I started this thread.
DUHHIIIIIIIII HEARD THAT!

Can I count this miss I just got playing the app on my phone?

If you feel like it.

How mad you gonna be if the streak ends on play money?

Nice accuracy. I screwed up on the plane back from Disney World after about 700 in a row. I thought I held the card, but nope.

i think it has to be 46 (instead of 47).. because the 47th card gives you the dealt royal.

About the accuracy. The two mistakes were from hitting bumps in the road. I play it a lot when friends are driving. Happens a lot.

My last two royals on it, both came holding AJ10 and drawing KQ. And they happened 54 deals apart.

When dealt 4 to Royal in the first 4 cards, which there are 4*5 = 20 ways to do that, there are 48 cards left to choose the last card, 47 of those lead to "4 to a Royal". No?

I got a Royal on my 8th round when I first got the app. I was not happy. Got another one about 1500 rounds later. Definitely overroyalled, bah. I don't play it much.

Same here. Basically while a passenger on the road. It's a battery drainer.

It's extremely fun on the iPad. Bigger screen and longer battery life. I purchased just the Ultimate X package so that's what I play.

I know you will never pay for anything ;)
