    Just won a $2,000 Royal Flush on a bar-top machine (DDB @ .50) at the Hard Rock!!!!!

    I finally feel like I belong to the "winners club"!!!!! I promise to only make positive and supportive comments from now on!!!!

    I don't have to be snotty anymore... I'm one of you!!!! Whooooo-Hoooo... GO winners!!!!

    I'll send a pic if I can figure out how to do it... I held a King of Diamonds and got the rest... I was yappin' to the guy next to me and didn't even realize what had happened till the machine locked up and said "call attendant"!

    Yeah Baby... it's true, you CAN be a winner!!!!!

    First royal ever? Or first W-2? Drawing 4 for a Royal is quite a feat! I haven't done it...yet. :evillaugh

    Congrats!

    As for pics, you can either attach pics via the site by using the "manage attachments" button, or use something like photobucket to host the pics and link the pic in the thread by using code like

    http://www.photobucket.com/my_account/my_royal.jpg[/img

    And add a right bracket at the end to close the code.

    Nice hit, congrats! :beer:

    I'm still on the outside of that winners circle but hearing about things like drawing four for a royal give me hope.

    Happy for you! Still waiting for mine. I've hit Deuces Wild Royals at the .25 level, but never the real thing.

    I broke my cherry in April this year - on a bartop at Aria - and it was also on a hand holding one card... (but unfortunately it was on quarters - oh well, no W2...)

    Congrats - that's the best feeling in the world. Here's to us all hitting on a $5 machine next round.....

    Congrats on your first royal! Drawing a royal from holding only one card is really great - I've done it 6 times. But I've yet to hit one at $.50 or $1 level. Your second one can't be far behind. :wave:

    18+ years of going to Vegas and still NO royal... Only two straight flushes and countless four of a kinds. I believe in Royals like Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny.

    Try playing some hundred play penny video poker. You'll soon stumble across your first royal. You'll get all excited for a minute then you'll realize its only $40 and really wish you were playing quarters or more..lol. I've gotten them on a penny machine and on a 3 line nickle machine but never at a higher denom. Oh, I take that back. I hate to admit it here but back before you fine fellows clued me in I got a quarter royal at Ellis Island with minimum bet :bang:

    Even on my iPad VP app, at a 100 play game, hours of playing, nothing.

    Now table games... I've been able to turn $100 into thousands quite a few times.
