    No, I'm not the winner.

    Yes, I think it looks real considering you can see the edge of the bill feeder as well as the reflection of the Wolf Run slot and the green LEDs from a player's card slot.

    I suppose this could have been a test run at IGT though... Either way. Nuts.

    Oh God that's beautiful. I am going to sleep dreaming about that. Even in QUARTERS that would be $200k! The one time I got 20x, in years of playing this game, I think I got some BS jacks or better hands. ARGH!!!!!!!!

    Where does the extra $505 come from?

    It was probably leftover cash that was in the machine prior to hitting the button.

    Wouldn't that be on right right side under credits (where it says 0 for some reason)? The paid column should be just what was won on the last hand I believe.

    'Twas my thought as well. Though my biggest hand pay was 1/80th that amount so maybe it works differently in such rarefied air.

    Regardless, it's pretty damn fun to daydream about such a sweet hit. :beer:

    On DSTP if you get a dealt royal with any multiplier on the deal, it turns into a 10+10=20 multiplier.

    Yeah, I've amazingly got it twice because I've definitely not played enough hands to deserve it. First at Flamingo in Summer of 2012, I stupidly didn't take a pic because I won nothing.

    2nd time at Tunica Roadhouse, this coming weekend 2 years ago...high pair on a 2c machine...woohoo. 1 in 562,500 to trigger that thing...what a waste. :cry:
    [​IMG]

    A 20X Dealt Royal at 10-play quarters also happened last November at Hollywood St. Louis for $200k. The casino promoted it for awhile. Lucky SOB.

    One needs to remember that "my dream hand", as shown by poker pro Kenny Nguyen's twitter, is more common than people might expect. As CtheWorld pointed out, In Double STP, any dealt Royal that was assigned any Deal Multiplier (1 in 15 chance of earning a deal multiplier) must automatically be augmented to a 20X Royal. This is done to make the game legal in most states. Some states require the the top prize to be hit as frequently as 1 in 17 million (e.g. Colorado), most "riverboat states" are 1 in 50M, Nevada is de facto 1 in 100M. With the rule change of a dealt Royal with any deal multiplier being augmented to 20X, the odds of it happening are 1 in 9.74M and this rule change adds about 0.117% to game's return. The same laws are also likely the reason why the highest Ultimate X multiplier is awarded for a full house instead of a Royal. (12X Royal at UX odds ~1 in 4.54M). Saw someone hit that in Tunica this summer too for the first time at nickels for $2400, lucky SOB.

    Now as for the possibility of it being real, I'm guessing yes. And it was probably hit at Horseshoe Hammond; sorry BeeeJay!!! Why do I say this? The card reader looks like typical CET. And Hammond has 9/6 DDB w/Double STP (99.48%) for 3/5/10 Play dollars in the high limit room (at $50 per tier credit...:grrr:). Also Kenny hails from about 30 minutes away from the casino according to his poker player profile. So it makes sense if he hit it, or someone he knew hit it at least. Next time I'm at Hammond, I'll have to see if a Wolf Run game is near by (I don't know for sure). But it's probably that bank because here's a pic I took from the bank in 2014 (the machines also have some "full pay" Ultimate X on them). Yep, IGT slots in the reflection. If it was Kenny, he out did poker pro Huck Seed's $670k+ Royal at Aria in 2011 (at least Huck was playing +EV at $500 a whack...:evillaugh)...here's the pic of that Royal.

    But whoever hit it... again lucky SOB.

    Sick level of detail dude....Awesome...

    Here is a question that you may or may not know the answer too, a little off toipic, but what the heck. I've played a lot of STP (as you already know), how come I've NEVER seen a 6x, 7x or 9x multiplier?

    In regular STP, they simply don't award 6X, 7X, and 9X multipliers.

    STP multiplier breakdown:
    2X 17%
    3X 33%
    4X 16%
    5X 24%
    8X 6%
    10X 4%
    Average 4.05

    Double STP multiplier breakdown
    2X 17%
    3X 33%
    4X 16%
    5X 24%
    8X 8%
    10X 2%
    Average 4.01

    For any other combination, you have to get a Deal and Draw multiplier in Double STP. So 17X and 19X are also impossible. I've got 20X twice, but never got the more likely 16X (8+8 only) *shrugs*.

    Ding Ding Ding...

    I knew something was fishy, and how did I KNOW, that you would have the answer! Interesting piece of detail about the % of each multiplier coming up when triggered!

    Thanks fella!

    You're welcome! STP and Double STP are my favorite games, so I've have studied up on it the most. ;)

    And I'll be playing it in about an hour!

    And now the plan is to go to Hammond (sorry wanker751, enjoy Vegas!) on Sunday to see if I can find the reflection of "Wolf Run" in the screen. Wish that pic would have been yours, Jordan!

    Speaking of STP...Chow's post possessed me to go play last night...lol. The only multiplay STP I could find at my local was a quarter 3-play, Progressive, which is currently just over $52k at the moment. It seemed like it took forever to get any kind of multiplier, and when I finally did, it seems I pulled a slight miracle...too bad I didn't get a payday kicker...

    I'm throwing my hat into the doubting it's real camp.

    1. There's no money in the machine... weird.
    2. The additional bonus money that came from nowhere. Again, weird.

    And, just from playing at the Aria near the MLife desk (row 803?), you can't play above quarters for ten play on their double super times. I could five play for fifty cents and three play for a dollar, but ten play was only quarters.

    Not saying you can't do it other places, but you definitely can't at the Aria.

    I'm assuming there's no money in the machine because it was cashed out.
    Tringlomane is our resident VP expert here and he apparently knows exactly where this machine is at Hammond and will be able to validate it for us soon.

    We shall wait and see.

    I'm pretty sure... and I am strictly a STP player, I don't play any other VP, that as soon as the STP ends and you do anything else with the machine, including cash out, the STP goes back to being an X. But, I could definitely be wrong. I always drinking while I'm playing it... that's for sure

    Also, where's the handpay/call an attendant screen?
