Thanks! Yup all at Paris. 2 different machines in that same circle by GR Steak.
Back in the room for a bit to put some money IN the safe for a change
Resting up with some Drip Drop then heading to the meet up! Looking forward to seeing everyone!
I gotta get in on this drip drop....and hand pays....and any pays....
Well done! I had trouble getting on some of those machines, so no big wins when I was there. But yay you!
Fantastic Alice I’m so happy for you and it’s so much fun when they are in the paying mode Go back about the same time tomorrow, my repeater royals/aces w/k seem to to happen around the same part of the next day.
Let me know if you play at Flamingo and I’ll guide you to the repeater there. Have a wonderful trip and continued good luck
Hi JJ - There is a circle of 6 VP machines in front of Gordon Ramsey Steak at Paris that have acted almost like ATMs on my trips for the last 4-5 years. I’ve had 11 royals in 2 trips in 2021 - 4 alone on my favorite at Paris. But be warned, they can also be VERY mean If they don’t give up something in a couple hundred - run for the hills. I chased a few times and learned the hard way to leave it and come back the next day. Good luck!
Well what the hell is happening? Folks need to know!
OK. Sorry for radio silence. Busy evening. Met up with another friend. I did play more Mississippi and it was much friendlier. In for 300 and out for 850! I can easy say today was one of the best gambling days I've had, except for maybe the night I got quads 3 times on Mississippi!
As I type this S is still in the air. Her flight was delayed. I tried stay up but I am crashing hard! Sorry @smbrake!
Right now I'm way up for the trip. I'll need to do a count for exact numbers. Now I need to make sure I don't give it all back.
Lots more fun Tomorrow!
Sorry I missed this earlier. Looks like Ann gave you the info!
A few pics from today. I finally got a frozen Baileys. But couldn't even finish half. Some walking pics and a decent Buffalo diamond bonus.
I'm finally here! Flight was delayed almost a hour by the time we took off. No idea why. At least I knew it was delayed before getting to the airport.
Before the airport, made a detour by the local to use some freeplay. Turned $35FP into $51. So starting the trip ahead! Let's keep it that way!
Flight was pretty uneventful. Slept a little but not great. For those interested in the Uber/Lyft situation tonight...it sucked. Got in a little before midnight, qued up both apps as soon as I got off the plane. By the time I got to terminal 3 baggage claim I still hadn't gotten anything! So taxi it is. Line for taxi was longish but moved quickly. Flat rate for airport to Ballys was $23 for cash ($3 more for a card).
Got checked in at Ballys. Asked about an upgrade and she had one but it moved me from 25th floor to 14th, so I stuck with the basic room on the 25th floor with a strip view.
I was hoping to play some tonight but I'm exhausted after a full day of work and travel. So we will hit it hard tomorrow! Let's find some ROYALS for me!
Thanks so much @annbrown57!. I’ll give those a whirl when I head out in August!
I've only had 5 "Royals"..... but 4 were 5 card draws to a nothing hand.. the other just holding an Ace!
Safest plane in the sky!
Following along. Good Luck
Glad the Mississippi got better! That dealt premium quad was amazing to be a part of and was literally the FASTEST hand pay EVER!
You two crazy kids have fun and here’s to hoping our trips cross paths again soon. And this reminds me, I guess I should finish up my TR...
You are like my VP spirit guide. I just did so many double takes wondering why the Q was held when you could have gone for a kicker. But alas, it *is* a kicker on that game, which I never play, but maybe I'll give it a try now, like a few others I've only seen you play lol
So much fun,! And you're right, that handpay took no time at all.
But this reminds me, I never did post breakfast pics. @Jer and I ate at MAG. Delicious as always. I had the berrie crepe which was amazing. And the cream you get with it. Omg! Jer had an omelet which also looked great!
So now, not sure what we're doing today. Royal hunting, I'm sure and dinner at Old Homestead tonight. For now I need to make coffee and wake up!
Love your shirt!
For single line games, CET is shockingly consistent at nearly every strip bar and has been since TAG changed their paytables in Nov. 2017. The games are:
30/6/5 Bonus (96.18%)
7/5 DDB (95.71%)
20/5/4/3/2/1 Joker (95.46%)
6/5 Bonus Deluxe (95.36%)
10/6/4/2/2/1 ACE$ Bonus (95.36%)
6/5 JoB (95.00%) *redundant always play Bonus over this
7/5 TDB (94.92%)
25/15/10/4/3/2 Deuces (94.82%)
8/5/4 Double Bonus (94.18%)
Now for multiline games, places sometimes vary. I think most units offer 8/5 DDB (96.79%). But 3535 at Linq and the multigame unit to the left of the wheelchair unit at Harrah's offers 9/5 DDB (97.87%). The latter also offers 8/5 DDB w/STP (97.06%).
Glad you moved from Double Bonus!
And after I saw that AWAK on DDB, I was gonna write that you move to Super DDB! Haha
I would. It's the best game on many CET machines at the quarter level at 97.68%. There are a few odd strategy adjustments though because the full house is only 30 credits and Face Cards with an Ace or Face pays 800.
Break two pair with a high pair.
Break all full houses except 5s-Ts.
Hold a kicker on trip face cards when applicable.
And lastly, and I'm jealous of @Astribling for doing this, hold a face card kicker when dealt quad Aces. In theory you can draw to the other kicker, but it costs long-term. But like DDB, you don't hold either kicker type when only dealt trip Aces.
Great start @Astribling! Keep it going!
Way to go with those wins! Now the party has really started!
Ladies, get some more wins!! Drink up too!
