    I thought I'd never get a Royal holding 4 cards but just came back from Laughlin and I got that twice in 2 days. Fun!:cheers:

    Awesome. When it rains it pours. Hope you don't have a long dry spell now.

    I have never hit a Royal.

    A friend hit one a month back on her vacation in Pai Gow, but she had to use the Joker to get it.

    My day Will Come!

    I had a streak of Royals a year or so ago. Each trip I'd get one and once I got two in the same day. Then none for a while until this past week. I never think I'm going to hit a dry spell....always hoping to win or at least stay in the game.

    My brother got a dealt Royal in Tunica last month. I thought those were just
    a myth until then.

    Those instances are amazing. My DH held one queen on this trip and got the other 4 of a royal.

    Never had a dealt Royal, but a while back I had a dealt straight flush at the SunCoast, less than 24 hours after filling a 1-card draw to a Royal.

    But, the Royals that really surprised me ... about a year ago at MSS held the K,Q of clubs, and pulled the other three, and then the next morning on the same machine, held the K,Q spades, and again pulled the missing three cards.
    And a year or so before that, at the Gold Coast, I held the lonely Q of hearts, and pulled the other four ... a 178,00 to 1 shot.

    Congratulations! Personally, I've never gotten anything above four of a kind, but I have hope!

    Congrats on the Royals!

    I hit a quarter progressive January, 2011 but none since. Okay, I hit three on Winpoker in the last couple of months which is cool but, not so profitable. :wink

    I have hit five Royals in total. The most unique was hitting two Royals on consecutive nights in the same suit (Diamonds) on the same machine at the same video poker bar. (Harrah's New Orleans Quarter Bar) Now, that was pretty cool.

    Wow Rebel Very Cool! My one and only (so far) also came at the Gold Coast as Budda mentioned..Holding four as I have countless times before,this time I stood up and hit the draw button.Jack of Clubs appeared..Now I'm chasing #2..And my VP buddy who lives close to AC finally got his first last week,but not in a serious session,just grab a drink at the bar...Problem is is that Harrahs AC bartops are all 10 unit quarter play and he was playing 5..Paid $350 instead of $2000.And just before on the phone I'm telling him watch out for the Royal.you are due..Guy knows where the best payout machines are in the place (There is ONE in a bank of 6 WSOP machines in Harrahs that may be 9/6,others are 8/5 iirc,from vpfree)and will play that machine in a real DDB session.
    And adding insult to injury- the Royal was DEALT..
    You just never know when it's coming..

    that hurts....my first Royal was a natural on deuces wild...I had one quarter in...either that or it was on nickels, but in any case, not much of a payoff

    I hit 4 royals, a first, on our last 2-week trip including 3 when I held 4 cards.

    I didn't start keeping track of number of cards held until early 2009. Of the 16 Royals hit since then, we have hit only 1, holding 4. I never thought about it until this thread popped up, but it is a little strange.

    Most were holding 3, but a couple came holding one and two.

    Has the machine already made the decision to pay a Royal on the first deal if you hold the correct cards or is it another random deal once you hit the deal button on the second set of cards?
