Am I the only one that winces a bit at the fact it's $1255 and wishes you'd won $56 less? =P


You aren't. I hated $1200 exact wins!

Yes, you are. Everybody here reports all of their wins not just the ones that are submitted to the IRS. :)

Of course I do as well... I was more referring to the machine locking up and stopping you from playing... GOTTA KEEP PLAYING!
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

You mean $57 LESS as it rounds up the win to the next dollar

Let me get this straight? I am supposed to send someone money if I win? I think I am exempt!! I think anyone who is 200 X or more below the poverty level is allowed to get 194.00 in food a month and some free medical in Nevada. Yes I remember them telling me that since I am homeless and a No File that I am exempt of any type of Tax on any type of winnings! The only thing I am required to do is to come into the office once every 6 months to sign a few papers.

Some machines round up misc cents to the next dollar, while others pay you the true amount and don't round. For the second case, some machines will show something like $1,255.27 on screen and casino will pay $1,255.27 and others $1,256. But I'd have to think, if the progressive was at $1,199.29 or something, hit a royal (and if the machine was a round-up type), it'd either pay you $1,200 w/o triggering a taxable...or if it did trigger a taxable, you'd be able to get out of it and request $1,199.29 and not get a W2G.

It appears the machine posted either rounds up to the nearest $0.50 or $0.25 figure, since it shows 5022 credits ($1,255.50). If it was at $1,199.27, I'm confident it'd pay $1,150.50 and not trigger a taxable. If the machine locked up (since some casino lock up with a $500 hit, $1k hit, etc., regardless of taxable)....I'd suppose there's a chance the casino would pay you $1,200 [handpay] without triggering a W2G.

I actually know someone who hit a hand for $1,200 even and the machine did NOT trigger a handpay.

Nothing stopping you from moving to the next machine and firing away! I usually do this if the machine is full pay as well !!

I've had this go good and bad in all sorts of spots. I hit one for 1199.78 once on a Blazing Sevens and I got them to not give me papers but it seems that it depends on what Property your in and what rules they have. Fremont pays me to the Penny almost every time unless one of the techs sends it when they are on a shift change and they seem to round up. However it does not matter to me. Round up or Not... as long as they pay me what the Jackpot Reads I am happy!

I hesitate to follow this post, but as casual video poker players (5-6 trips a year to Vegas) I thought I'd honor my wife's insane luck. Back in March she was dealt a Royal Flush (Clubs--8/5 BP) at MSS (actually tried to no avail to post pictures). I told her at the time a dealt Royal was a "once in a lifetime event". This past Friday she was dealt another Royal (clubs again--8/5 BP) at The "D". This time I was sitting right next to her when it happened. This was our second trip back since the March Royal so conservatively maybe 20,000 hands later. So her last 2 Royals were "dealt" to her. Since the odds of a dealt royal is something like 650,000 to 1, having 2 dealt in say 20,000 hands must be some astronomical number. Just a little side humor, the last time I told her about a "once in a lifetime event" was when she won a salt water fishing tournament with a 28+ inch Speckled Trout at the Texas coast. At least to date my prediction on the fish has stood up. Probably would not bet against her though.

Surprisingly, only about 32 to 1
