    I still suck gambling, but I wanted to brag about my wife's weekend. We were gambling at MSS of course, at our usual #1 & #2 machines. Sunday, she holds two cards on #2 and hits a quarter Royal. Monday, she sat down on #3, holds two again and gets another Royal!:thumbsup: She then moved over to # 2. After playing less than an hour, she leans over and asks me what I would do. She has a heart flush with a 9, missing the king. I'm losing so I say I would just keep the flush, so of course she tosses the nine (she never listens to me:wink2:) and gets her third quarter Royal.:thumbsup:

    And she brought most of the winnings home. Her Royal total is now 30. I'm still stuck at 17.:cry:

    I will be there in two weeks. I hope I can get a royal. I hit 2 last year on the same machine, one in June and one in November. I was at the Freemont.

    Awesome luck!! I have never, in all these dang years of playing VP, hit a royal, so these kind of stories both frustrate and inspire me. I want 3 Royals!!! (or even 1!)

    Congrats to the Mrs., Joe ... she sure has the touch !!
    I never had multiple Royals on the same day, but last year I had three nickel Royals on three separate days, at three separate properties ... MSS, the Rampart, and the Cal ... all on multi-line machines.

    Hoping VP wasn't your primary game for all 17 trips or you play very sporadically like I do...

    You really told her to keep a normal flush, Joe?

    Why???

    In all the years we have been playing VP, we each only have 1 to date, my wife's was a few years ago, and mine was last year, both at local NA casinos...hope to get at least one this next week while in town!

    Yea, it was stupid of me and I wouldn't have kept it either. Just a duh moment w/o thinking. Oh, and copious amounts of alcohol were involved.

    Congrats to the wife. That's a dream run. Each royal worth $1002 due the scratch card?

    Were you playing bar top or the 10/7 machines?

    We only play bartops, never on the floor. I do believe there was a $3 scratch card for one of them.

    My wife would disagree with that statement. I will say that I have never hit anything significant when she isn't with me so she is a good luck charm but not for herself.

    It all started with the pre-boarding luck and resulted in her ignoring your sound advice (despite the copious amounts---it SEEMED sound at the time!!) Congrats Ms. J !!
