I have come across a thread few months back - vulture an Ultimate X Machine

- Take advantage of the Multiplier left behind by the previous player.

So I have decided to give it a try and find few machines with the Multiplier left behind.

On the strip , off strip Casinos and local casinos

I have played only one hand ie take advantage of the multiplier.

Few of the Multipliers that I have played

Result - Loss in all of them,


When would be a good time to vulture an Ultimate X Machine?

I am not sure I ever actually addressed this, but I believe it is a good time to vulture with ANY multiplier on the machine, even just one 2x on a 10-play.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Vulturing is very difficult imo

It's a wait and see, walk around the same territory type of play.

Also there is a thread on here about the possibility of casino execs now erasing left over multipliers on UX so maybe that is contributing

That has always been my thought too. And regardless of pay table.

I looked at the first four links you posted. Bad luck. But you're missing something. You're not doing it right. If someone else wants to tell you what you're doing wrong, that's their business. But I say study it yourself, go back over what you've read, and find the mistake yourself.

I will tell him. Only bet 5 coins per hand when vulturing.

Why make it so difficult for him, Rich? Get his address and send him some money.

And send me some too. I charge a fee for being an a-hole. I worked hard to become one.

Wait a minute!

The AP novice was LEAVING behind multipliers

Damn, Bobbartop must be steaming. A valuable AP move ruined. Someone should have found out where and when he was playing and just followed him around

Ultimate vulture move a couple months ago, although it was only worth a few cents to me. Are you familiar with the IGT game called Ring 'em Up? It's nine squares with an all-fruit bonus like Super 8 Race. Anyway, if you line up bells in a certain pattern it goes into a mode of 9 games where the points are worth more. I'm looking at a video poker layout one day and notice on the machine next to me something flashing. I recognized it right away. The game had gone into Turbo Mode or Ring Mode or whatever it's called, and the player walked away. It could have been like that for hours, just waiting for me. I stepped over and put a few bucks in and played off the 9 games. That's actually happened more than once to me.

What would be thrilling, and REALLY the ultimate vulture, would be finding the game Shockwave abandoned in Shockwave Mode. That has never happened to me.
