Many people are what I call "royal flush guy". Royal Flush Guy holds whatever cards are in a royal flush, like suited KA instead of a pair of 5's.



Here's a few interesting hands. Say, for whatever reason, you're playing 9-6-5 Double Bonus. The hand consists of 'JT9' suited and an offsuited small pair.

JT922 hold the 22
JT933 hold the 33
JT944 hold the 44
JT955 hold the JT9
JT966 hold the JT9
JT977 hold the 77
Don't believe anything until it is officially denied.

I think I mentioned this a while back but I've seen 4 to a straight with 1 deuce, ace and a wild on deuces, and 77K or something like that. Gotta love those people

EXCEPT when they are playing 4 hands on 100 play when it's the only machine that can get reasonable coin in (like on quarters) :(
They asked me how well I understood theoretical physics. I said I had a theoretical degree in physics. They said welcome aboard.

Is Ameritstar STL still the best casino? I think itís my favorite non-Vegas casino Iíve been to.

FinsRule casino would be modeled after that.



Overall it's near the top in the state, impressive for 17 years since its last major remodel. But since boyd took it over that might change. And earning status though VP is shot now.

Lol. I would answer no, but to do so would be to acknowledge that they were the best? Will assume was meant as a joke.



I think he meant the "best casino in Missouri", which I would lean toward "no, but it's close to it". I personally like River City better. Both casinos are examples of well-run casinos though.

I did mean best casino in STL area. Ameristar has friendly dealers, good game variety, good food and atmosphere. Checked all the boxes. River City was fine too.

There is one casino here where the only 99% VP is 100 draw poker. I have done 5c denom and 4 hands just because of the pay table. I don't like it, though, because the card pictures and buttons are smaller than single draw VP which gets annoying. I also did 20c denom (max choice) and just 1 hand, effectively doing single draw VP for $1/hand total bet. That's even more annoying because almost all of the screen is full of blank cards. My attempt to win $800 on a royal flush didn't work the one time I tried that.

I forgot to mention another thing that people do that increases the house edge -- betting less than 5 coins. Bet 1,2,3 or 4 kind of randomly. Bet 4 is such a dumb move. To save 25 cents on the bet, you're willing to "lose" $750 (as in, win $750 less) if you get a royal flush? LOL

A lot of people will bet 4 at bars because the bartender will tell them it's a minimum $1 bet to get a comp drink and they don't know any better. Lol

I can think of one possible benefit of putting 99%+ machines at a casino. If it attracts higher stakes players who would normally not play and they put a lot of coin in through, it raises the overall coin in of all machines but also raises the total slot payout percentage. If these machines break even or only hold 1% after factoring comps and freeplay, itís a benefit to the casino if they wish to tout their higher slot payouts than their competition. This could draw more ploppies to play slots thinking they are getting better return than the casino down the street when in fact they are not.
