    Was dealt 4-to-a-Royal on dollar five play Friday night (actually early Saturday morning). Needed the Ace of Hearts. On second hand I got the Ace of Diamonds and groaned, but then cheered as I got it on the third hand for $4,000 win! Got up from my chair to wait for attendant, then looked back at the machine, which said $8,000. I was like "What? Why does it say $8,000?" Then I noticed I also hit the Royal on the last hand! Could not believe it.

    Two hours later, I hit another one in Hearts. Not a bad haul.

    I can relate to that Ace of Diamonds. Red/Black Royal Straights are the worst. I can't relate to that 1 in 230.6 shot of making 2 or more Royal draws out of 5...or 1 out of 747.9 if you only consider 2 Royals out of the last 3 hands...haha Nice start to the holiday weekend! :beer:

    The comps at Trop are by far the best in AC. Very generous with rooms, comp dollars, gift cards, gifts, free play, etc.
