Not bad for a \$1 machine and a \$5 bet.
At my age, a "Life In Prison" sentence is not much of a deterrent.

Did anyone ever say where? All I saw was, it was a "non-strip" casino.

...which brings up another question: what's a typical strip paytable for BP? 6/5 seems like something you would find on the strip, even with the sequential jackpot.

That was at the Aliante casino

https://wizardofodds.com/games/video-poker/tables/sequential-royal/

On average, with optimal strategy, a sequential royal occurs once in about 3.8 million hands. Assuming a playing rate of 1,000 hands per hour, playing 24 hours a day, a reversible royal will occur on average once every 158 days.

There is often a progressive jackpot on reversible royal games. On average, every additional 100,000 coins in the jackpot, above the usual 50,000 is worth an additional 0.526% in return. This figure assumes optimal strategy for a 50,000 coin jackpot, not that actual jackpot amount.

hm.. 1:3.8M but if you count reversible as well, then 1:1.9M to hit?

So the Sequential jackpot resets to \$50k?
If so, double the reset amount is no where near +ev for 6/5 BP.
:)

And congrats on whoever hit it!
