    Apologies if this thread has been done before. I'm headed out in two weeks for a four day trip and am putting together my scouting report so to speak, as I have yet to pop my VP cherry on a Royal. The question is, where do I want to play??? This is also yet another opportunity for other board members to brag. I'll be staying mid strip, but will be playing all over the place.

    So what I am asking is WHEN and more importantly, WHERE did you hit your Royal(s) in Vegas? Thank you in advance for sharing!

    I hit my first royal in March this year.....it was however on a Deuces Wild with two deuces, so not a full payout...but it was still fun. Paid $150.00 on five quarters in at a bartop at the Rio in the Book.

    Still waiting for a "real" one :):):)

    I hit my first Royal end of April, less than a month ago! JoB 100-play at Four Queens. Unfortunately pennies :( I was playing 10-hands, betting 50c/draw and I won $40 :)

    First was at the Vue bar in The D on their full pay bonus poker. Progressive was around $1083. This was over Easter weekend 2014, when I met a lot of good VMBers. I was holding Q-10 of diamonds.
    Second through eleventh was the dealt royal on ten hands at MSS All Star machines. I have a trip report on that if you want to see it.
    I hit one this January, once again on ten handed MSS All Star machines, but only one line of ten. I think I was only holding 2 or 3 to a royal.

    First one was at Bally's in Oct 2012 an hour before I had to leave for the airport.

    Second one was just a few days later at Foxwoods, in CT. I thought it was easy!

    Third one was a year later, Oct 2012 at Planet Hollywood in Vegas. Not as easy as I thought.

    In spite of increasing my video poker play dramatically, it took me until March of 2015 to get another one. That was at Rampart in Vegas.

    Less than 3 hours later I hit another! Playing fifty cents so it was for $2000!

    Waiting (im)patiently for the next one, but I have learned they come when they come.

    But there have been plenty of other premium hands over the years to keep it exciting!

    IN Vegas I got a royal on a hundred play penny machine. Paid all of $40. Said f this and upped my stakes. Haven't gotten a quarter or higher Royal in Vegas.

    I've hit royals on 6 occasions.

    2/11 -Blue Chip (Indiana) penny
    2/12 -Flamingo dealt penny - 6 lines (wish it was more)
    9/12 -Tunica Roadhouse 2c
    8/15 (ouch) -Linq penny
    9/15 -Gold Strike Tunica 2X dimes
    3/16 -River City (St. Louis) nickel

    The easiest way to find a royal is to put the hand volume in with multiline poker, and 100 play pennies are available at Flamingo, Linq, and some other properties. But I totally understand if you wouldn't want your first royal to be pennies. My $40 royal cherry was a bit underwhelming.

    My one and only came last November on our last day in Vegas after a week of rough betting. .50 Ultimate X at Palazzo. No multiplier of course, was also my first VP handpay. Ironically got another handpay on the machine next to it about 10 hands later when I hit 5 OAKS (9s) on the initial deal for $1250. Only two handpays I've ever had at VP, been dry since then. Hope to add a few more in a bit over a couple weeks!

    not my first royal but still prob my favorite Vegas win: a few years ago me and the wife got our azz kicked the whole trip, we are low limit players and we had been there 5 nights and down 1000 dollars which is alot for us, the wife was in bed the last night of the trip and I was calling it a night as well when I hit max bet on a .50 machine for my last hand of the trip which I only had 3 credits left and I was like no way, I am playing max so I stood up and reached in my pocket and pulled out 2 more dollars ( this was on double deuces at planet Hollywood by the way). Machine dealt me 3 of the royal and I quickly hold the cards and started walking away assuming I was going to lose the hand as I almost always do and as I was putting on my coat the bartender was trying to hi five me. Hit a royal on my last dollar of the trip! I was going home a loser and within seconds I won 2000. Called my wife and said "get your ass down here, were playing longer!):) the cool bartender gave me 2000 dollars worth of losing sports bet tickets to claim on my taxes. I never used them but was cool of him to do so.

    too many to list.
    most memorable...dollar royal at MSS treasure chest machines...although, we had just got into vegas and I was already up $1000 from the first stop at the crap table..so I was immediately $5000 ahead.
