    Nice!!!!
    About 5-6 years ago I witnessed a MLB baseball player get a dealt royal on a triple play, $100 denim machine in Bellagio high limit. $1.2M!
    Took them >1 hour to pay out. All kinds of technicians and suits had to verify. He started with 50 K preloaded on the machine. Heard he hit Caesars for 400,000 the day before. Everyone was quiet about his name other than he was a pitcher in the National League

    With massive hits like this I always have to convert them to "my kinda money". While no where near life changing money I'd be pretty damn happy winning $4,000 off a $5 bet.

    That is obviously a life-changing amount of money for most people, but my jaded ass couldn't help noticing they were betting $500 a shot, making the gain a slightly less eye-popping, but still solid, 800x.

    I wish the session points were visible on the screen so I can see the amount he/she put in.

    Welp, he only has 13,190 total points, so unless he already spent some down, 1) that's $79,140 max coin in on VP, 2) he ain't even Gold yet.

    I saw an article which stated the player was a local female.

    Regarding points, they can be redeemed at any time, so no sure indications from that how long she had been playing or what card level she is..

    With that amount of play per round, her starting at or near zero is a real possibility. That's only 158 "rounds". The odds of either hitting that or a dealt royal on TDB in 158 rounds is 1 in 1028.6. And the theo of 158 rounds...$1464...yikes. Wish I was betting that when I got my dealt royal! haha

    ..and whats with the .69 at the end? that's a few levels up, assuming they were adhering to strict parlay rules. lol

    Also, I'm pretty sure this is 9/6, which also makes it the worst or close to the worst game on the machine.
