In terms of games, I don't think they realized what they were doing, but 2 julys ago the same casino ran 3 overlapping BJ promos: suited BJs for drawing entries, 2:1 BJs during sunday baseball games, and BJ bingo with relatively achievable and very generous freeplay prizes (spaces for each suited BJ, 5 card charlie, 6 card charlie, 777, 678, etc.)
I was there at 4:15am on weeknight playing blackjack by myself with about 10 other people in the whole place playing slots. I notice that the progressive was at $49,550. It goes up by the amount played and the time elapsed. In this case it seemed to be going up by about a cent per $20 players. I decided to ride it out--- I mean it is going to hit before noon.
I played a penny machine pretty rapidly because each pull gives you a shot (any pull=same chance I was told). So I was playing one cent rapidly on two machines. Dropped about $50. I think it was massively EV+.
Guy on a nickel bank two rows over hit it at 5:30am for $49,6xx. I was too disgusted to stay and watch after he nailed it.
Did you use cover play at all? Or did you play with the full 90%+?Quote: RogerKint
Yesterday, I got to play with a Mississippi Stud dealer consistently flashing the river. SCORE!

You lucky bastard :)
How do they manage to flash the river? Is it the bottom card? At most places the bottom card is the first card flipped.

No cover. The dealer didn't last long at the table. Situations where cover would be needed were rare.
