    Does everyone at the table get some payout? I can't remember how that works?

    Not a client, he is running home to his wife with the check ASAP. I considered grabbing him up until he told me he is using the money to buy a Camaro and a Restaurant, so guessing that money won't last long. It's great to see though, I love seeing folks win big like that. Everyone here is pretty happy for him. Life changing event. He is the only person at the table that gets a payout, although they haven't left the table in hopes that it is a lucky game.

    At least you admit it. :evillaugh Amazing hit though! And thanks for grabbing the pic!

    I wonder how many times CET has paid this out now and where they are vs. expectation. I want to say I read that they were about 3 payouts above expectation in the first year? Reading that did make me smile a little on the inside...:evillaugh

    I would hope it's a VMB'er, but not holding my breath with the "first time gambling"...:evillaugh

    Awesome pic. I think I would have requested the whole amount in banana chips laid out on the table for the most epic chip porn shot ever.

    Did he tip the dealer?

    That's a pretty awesome win. That's the thing with 3 card poker. You can be brand new and as long as you put your money out there, you still have a chance. I found his strategy of having a ante bet quite a bit higher than his raise to be interesting though. I usually match those 2 bets but maybe I'm the strange one. Best I've ever done are 3 of a kinds and such. Nothing massive.

    I have had the WORST luck with 3-card poker. I love it but I never win. I can count the times I've had something better than a pair on one hand.

    Glad to see this person have some great success. I love 3 card but almost never play the side bet. Good for this person that they were blissfully unaware of what a large house advantage he was giving up on that bet.

    I believe the odds of hitting the royal flush diamonds is 1 in 40 million. Most people in the casino have only seen it hit a couple times in their careers. The common theme was that everyone in the casino was really, really happy with the guy. Majority were, naturally, a tad bit jealous, lol.

    He did but since this was his first time gambling, and only 30 mins into his first foray into gambling, he didn't know any better and tipped a little lighter than what most of you all would have tipped given your experience. Not bad for someone with zero experience though. I'll keep the amount classified.

    If it were me, personally, with that big of a win, I'd do between .5% and 1%.
