    I got my first royal flush playing on Oct 10 at the El Cortez. It was dealt to me was playing maybe 25 mins on a quarter machine. Put a 20 dollar bill in ended up getting four aces too about ten mins after that. Read that the odds are pretty long on getting dealt a royal. I am glad the machine just pays right away and didnt give me a chance to screw it up accidently somehow.

    Popping that Royal cherry is truly a fun experience and dealt also!

    Sweet win. Always nice to hit a $1000 on a $20 investment. Even though I think VP is one of the most boring casino games out there, I bet my enthousiasm would change instantly if I hit that Royal :)

    RIGHT ON!!! Good for you!!!! I've lived here for 35 years and only hit my first one about 6 or 7 months ago I guess. To be fair, I only started playing VP about 6 years ago and only play 2-3 hours per day for a day or two during my Vegas visits... so I'm no grinder... but sure was happy to join the club! Welcome Paul!!!

    Pays right away? It didn't make you manually hold the cards and push the draw button?

    Nice job! I've had 2 Royal's dealt to me in the last 21 years. It's an awesome feeling and the machine does all the work.

    I've had 3 dealt at different locations. Machine locks up and thankfully no decisions needed.

    I thought I was going to have to beat you up....I was chasing a $1400 quarter Royal and a $1900 quarter Royal at the two Palms bars last week. One hit Thursday morning on graveyard when I left for an hour to eat and the other hit Saturday when I was at a concert after spending the afternoon chasing it. Congratulations on your first Royal.

    Yeah it paid me right away, It made the ding noise cause I had a paying dealt hand. I looked at it saw it was a royal. Before I could do anything it just started adding the credits to my total. After it was done it automatically printed out a ticket for 1000 dollars.

    Congrats! I've had two dealt royals. What happens is it deals the 5 cards, click click click click click, if you have sound on, and then really quickly holds all five, click click click click click, and sets the royal.

    Sweet hit. The El Co is where I hit my first and only royal. Put in twenty waiting for the wife to get ready for dinner. It was a coin dropper ended up being a hand pay.

    Awesome, Congrats!! I got my first Royal on Monday October 20th At Harrah's at Toby Keith's Pit on the first floor. Had a terrible trip, wait I've never had a terrible trip to Vegas, So I'll rephrase that...I lost my shirt this trip, couldn't hit anything I tried, and I tried a lot. So it was my last night, I took a small advance on my credit card so I'd have some money to enjoy my last night. Around 10pm my friends sat down to play video poker, I just stood and watched, a few minutes later I decided to sit down and put my last $100 bill in the machine......$30.00 later I got delt the Queen, 10, king, and Ace of diamonds, I closed my eyes, said, no whammies about three times & hit the deal button and boom got it! Completely saved my trip!!! Gotta love leaving Vegas with money in your pocket!

    Congratulations! If you weren't hooked on VP before, I bet you are now! It's been a long time between Royals for me, and I have never had a dealt one. I think I would pass out if I got one :faint:
