    can only wish but this was not my win

    last night I was talking to a fellow 7* member in the palm room at harrahs new orleans. he said he was from Georgia and mainly played at Cherokee as many people go there...so we talking about what we like to play and biggest wins ect...normal gambler talk

    he said his best was a VP machine at Cherokee, he pulls his phone out and shows me they picture...i took a pic of his pic with my phone so its a lil blurry. but it looks to be a $1 machine with 50 bets...said he won $40k of this hit on Deuces Wild...10 royals, no Deuces


    whats your thoughts

    Yep...I've done it. Just wish it would have been for $50 a round like his was instead of 36 cents a round for "free beer" consumption... :cry:

    I've done it online (real money) but unfortunately only for 5c play. I've also done it on DW Dream Card at Bally's, again on 5c so, yes, it really is possible. Have to be in it to win it, lol. The problem I always think of that if you're dealt a Wild Royal with one Deuce what do you do, throw the Deuce away? I wouldn't on single play but on 10 play I'm not sure what I'd do. What would anyone else do? Just interested. Strategy is to keep it BUT.....

    I've been dealt 3 deuces with a pair so 5oak and thrown the pair away because that it says to do. Then ended up with 10 x 4oak, very frustrating!

    In the past two months my gf and I have been dealt royals. Crazy considering the odds.
