    Ok folks so I just hit my first Royal after almost 14 trips to Vegas.

    It happened this morning after breakfast in the rainforest cafe up beside the big horse racing machine - you know the one that you get a bucket of coins for!

    Was walking down the isle and something just told me to sit down and play at that particular machine - the reason I'm convinced this was fate was the fact that I always play with a decent bankroll behind me but today I simply slid a twenty in and felt confident.

    After 6 hands I was dealt 4 to the royal in hearts and said to my GF - I'm feeling this jack of hearts. pressed draw and BOOM there it was for a cool $1000

    The feeling was even better than I thought it would be and I have been as high as a kite all day:drunk:

    Just getting ready to go out now so will post a pic soon enough (for myself really)

    Thanks to RoyalFlusher :nworthy: who told me 3 days ago that I would get 2 or 3 this trip. I hope he's right because I'm halfway there.

    Ok folks happy new year.

    DoD

    I'm in the same boat. I play 3 to 5 play JOB and the last few trips I haven't even seen four to a royal! I figure I play at least 10k hands every time I'm in Vegas, so I should be hitting once every four times I make a trip (on average). I'm hoping that since I've never seen one, this next trip I'll see multiple royals.

    Awesome for the OP though. I wish I had his insight.

    To be brutually honest, nope. But for your sake, I hope you don't exclusively play video poker. Otherwise, you are likely running quite bad.

    10k drawn hands total? or 10k "rounds"/"deals" (which is 30 to 50k hands total depending on the mix of games you play). There is a big difference there.

    I always get insanely jealous when people talk about their royals. I bet I've been dealt four to the royal close to 100 times over my six trips as I play a lot of vp. Like others, I think I've given up and just play ddb and hope for quads
