    Played at Majestic Star last night. Was running my typical bad, down $100 on single line 8/5 bonus in less that $500 coin in. Tring can tell you how unlikely this is but happens often to me! Feeling dejected as usual, when I run bad I run really bad. No quads nothing

    Get dealt an AK of spades hold it, excepting to brick as usual.....

    Hit the draw button and then....

    Fuck yeah after two years,of serious vp play, my first royal! Monkey off the back.

    And it pull it on a shitty night with the cubs winning the NL [salty sox fan and I own it] no more sad feelings.

    Went down and bricked $85 at $5 pinball, but won my 'losses' back. $70 at pai gow and $130 at baccarat. To take home a smothe $1k profit!

    I was running so hot at baccarat I was just flat betting too.

    Side note I was 1 in 16k to pull that royal or about the same odds a team wouldn't make to the world series since the year Hitler died!

    Go Cubbies! (sorry, had to say that for my poor hubby whose been a fan since childhood - he's still in shock and one can't deprive the dear old man of his moment).

    Nice Win! Hope there are more Royals where that came from - congrats!!!
     
    Fingers crossed - it's been almost a year

    Pulling 3 is definitely Al Michaels worthy!

    And worth drinking a "Duff" to celebrate! I was bit thirsty at Universal Studios Florida before this pic though.

    Nice hit! As a Dodger fan I feel your pain. But this is the Year of the Cubs, and anyone who stands in the way will get run over. At least the Giants bit it before the Dodgers did.

    Wanker, nice job! Is that your first every RF or just first RF at Majestic Star? We have been there once and I loved the pay tables for VP but I did not like the area we drove through to get there. If I remember correctly, it was a little seedy. I could be wrong because it was a while ago. But I digress...

    Congrats!!!

    Thank you. It was my first royal ever. Can't beat the vp, I go other places but I go here for vp mostly. They are generous with bounce back free play. I get $10 per week and in november [only 1 trip in Oct before mailer generated 1k coin in with tring] I got $15 a week. Playing bonus for an hour or so I am almost positive. Not bad.

    Eh not really I it is in an industrial area off a highway [cline ave] but really the area is fine.

    Thats right, industrial. Now I remember. But it is also right on the lake. We really should get back there. Which side is better for VP, Majestic Star or Majestic Star 2?

    Either is fine. I hit mine on majestic ii. But both side had the full pay machines though there is a bank of game kings on ii with almost every variation of vp on it. Some I never even heard of like dice fever and atomic poker.

    majestic 1 has more,of the newer games. hot roll, split card etc.
