    This past Sunday 27th, I finally hit a 4 of a kind at Luxor. I had barely sat down and it was my second hand. 8,8,K was my starting hand, let the bet ride and the next 8 popped up. Now I've been in this position before but the 4 of a kind has never happened for me. My brother is sitting next to me and he says he needs a 7, I say I need an 8. No sooner than I said boom the dealer turns over the other 8, Damn I could not believe it, I was in shock a little that the last 8 dropped. Well total payout was $3100. :thumbsup:

    Luxor was different in that the bonus bet is $5 compared to $1 bet at MGM and other places I have played it at. Which was a good thing for me because that $5 bonus bet payed $1500. Then 50-1 on the other 3 let it ride bets (I was playing $10). Actually I don't even know where the other $100 came from but that is what they payed me. I also was playing $5 on the 3 card bet.

    You know what the best part was?- NO TAXES :thumbsup:

    Hits like that are what make the carnival games so addictive. Congrats!

    Awesome hit! I know that feeling when you have trips and you are waiting that final card to be turned, the stomach churning can be unreal, glad it finally paid off for you!

    I know the feeling!
    I was playing UTH at Gold Coast & got an 8-J...I checked, and the flop pulled up an 8. I raised the two units...and (you guessed it), the turn/river was the other two 8s.
    Congrats!
    PS - the 5-card bonus was $1500 (300-1)... the 3 'play bets' were 50-1 (so, $500 each) and the 3-card bonus was $150 (trips)...so, your payoff should have been $3150
     
    Seems like forever from now, but the flights are booked, so it counts!

    Nicely done, sir!

    Pardon my ignorance...but how much did you have at risk for that sweet win? $35?

    Congrats. :beer:

    Thanks to everybody for the congrats. I was betting $40 all together. As for the 3 card bet, I did not have trips, in my 3 card hand I only had a pair of 8's w/ a King.

    ...very nice...I've hit 4OAK twice with starting small pairs...not brave enough to let the first bet ride but I can't complain...also, I've NEVER seen the $1 bonus bet set at $5..that's criminal...lol....I never play it...when it comes to the BJ, LIR, etc. side bets (usually money sucking but can be fun) I stick to my game plan of "always" or "never" play them. LIR is my favorite...many great/fun memories....Congrats again!!!

    Back in the early/mid '90s, my friend hit four Jacks within a few minutes of sitting down at a LIR table at Bally's. It was the first week they debuted the game and we were amazed you could win $750 on a game that required a $15 buy-in but really only a $5 loss per hand. I came home from that trip and dealt myself thousands of hands of LIR and have still never hit a 4OAK, for "fun" or at the tables.

    In other words, great hit and congratulations, CaliMike!

    Have you got a dealt quad in VP yet? Same thing. Odds 1 in 4165.


    I agree but at least it worked out for him. Nice hit!

    Also nice job avoiding the tax man on the bonus bet. $5 more payout and it actually would have been a W2-G. But if I'm reading the Wizard of Odds right, that bonus bet would be illegal in my home state of Missouri with less than a 70% payback. Ugh. Take the money and run!

    I don't play let it ride much anymore and never had a 4oak playing it. I did see it at my table TWICE within a 4 hour session. I thought there was gonna be a congressional investigation at the Mirage after the second one. At a minimum, I thought the dealer would get fired, but he was there the next day dealing, to my surprise. :haha:

    Probably wanted to make sure there wasn't an inside job. I remember walking by a straight flush on a LIR table at my local once. They had it shut down for over a half-hour.

    Very nice hit!!!! I have been playing LIR for years, and no 4OK yet!!! However, I did get a 4OK playing UTH on the boat in Southern IN. Was dealt a pair of 5s, and the other two 5s were on the flop. Unfortunately, I was not playing the $1 bonus, otherwise it would have been an extra $300. Live and learn! And I have been playing UTH for about a year!

    They must have a better paytable on the bonus (progressive) at your Indiana casino...my $1 bet paid either $75 or $100 for 4OAK at Boulder Station earlier this year. I think my $5 Trips bet paid $150. So my total payout was either $225 or $250 for 4 of a kind...(I was only playing the progressive and Trips bets so the others didn't pay anything).

    The following day, I was about to sit down at the table when I saw 4 of a kind in the common cards; so both players at the table got paid on that one. Too bad I missed that one.

    Although I haven't played LIR all that much, I have been lucky enough to hit 4OAK twice. Both times with all three bets out - first time I held tens, second time I held trip 9's.

    Most notable LIR story was when the guy next to me hit a straight flush with one bet out. I was amazed when he pulled back the second bet, with 2 chances at the straight flush.
