    My Trip Report

    I was in Vegas on vacation this week and was losing badly the first two days.

    On the third day I woke up early in the morning and started playing some video poker before my partner was awake. I played for about an hour when I happened upon a machine where I had had a Royal Flush about a year ago. I said to myself, what the heck, I might as well try again. Lo and behold I got another Royal. I was ecstatic. I immediately quit. Woke up my partner and we ate breakfast then took a quick soak in the hot tub. I got a bit anxious and started playing video poker at the bar, playing quarter five play double double bonus.

    I had been playing for about an hour when suddenly the machine locked up - I had been dealt a Royal on all five hands. That made me more than even for the trip and I went for a long drive on the strip. vegas poker hand.JPG

    Nice!
    But damn..if a $5000 Royal put you “just over even” for the trip, and you’re playing quarters..*gulp!*

    Shouldn't the title of this thread be "Some Days Are Hearts"?

    I’m usually three days in before I cross the dreaded “Only a Royal can make this better” threshold, but I have never dreamed of “Only a five way dealt Royal” will get me even.

    Thanks everyone for your nice posts.

    When the hand was dealt my heart stopped for just a second.

    It is certainly a once in a lifetime hand.

    Wow! Where did you hit this? I ask because I don't recall ever seeing those icons on the bottom of the screen. I knew I had been playing the wrong machines. :haha:
