I've hit 2 Royals on the same machine on the same night twice. A couple other times I got 2 royals in a day. I just finished a trip where I played 22 1/2 days and hit 7 royals in two 3 day spurts. At this point, I may actually sound like a Royal magnet, but there is more to the story. A lot of trips, I exceed 100,000 or 120,000 hands and see a royal or two. I'm still a bit haunted by a 3 trip draught that included 7 weeks of play. I'll throw out more than 300,000 Royal-less hands as a guess. Same places, same single line machines, same player, different results. My Royals don't come on a schedule. They don't come when I want or think I need them. They don't come when "I'm due" They come when they come. In DB, you often hold a 4th flush kicker along with 3 to a royal and a 3rd flush kicker with 2 to a royal, and even 2 flush kickers with a high card. The play increases the flush frequency but reduces the Royal frequency. 10/7 DB players still hit Royals, often more than players at other games, because the pay table often keeps DB players in the game longer between Royals. The OP doesn't play a ton, but does play a good game. Royals are going to come, perhaps in batches.
