Don't you love it when you have a stretch where it seems like you can't miss? Well that was me at CET Tunica Monday night for about two hours. First go to the Horseshoe because they had a 10X slot/5X VP multiplier. This trip had been mostly down until that day and I was still down $50. Belly up to the poker room bar and notice my craft beer taps are all disconnected. Asked the bartender where they went and he said they removed the tanks two months ago and never replaced them. Doh. So I settle in with a Budweiser and start playing. Play 8/5 JoB (97.30%) as it's the best quarter choice. Hold my own, but get jealous of the guy 3 down from me as he was playing 8/5 DDB (of course) and hit 4 Aces for $200. I think to myself, "I want 4 Aces, but I know DDB is worse so..." But I soon realize that their dollar game is 9/6 (98.98%). I don't want to bet max, but betting one still pays back better than any quarter choice (97.83%), so I figure why not? At first that was a mistake. I was now over $20 in the hole and I am getting a little bored. But I soon get a pair of Aces with a straight flush draw, and ask the bartender to tell me when to hit it. He obliged. Not exactly what I wanted, but it was a start, and seemed to set the timing for that 2 hour window. Two minutes later I was a lot happier I switched to DDB. Cash out after that up $60 and find my gf to show her my good fortune. She also turned it around there a bit with an 8X full house for 320 nickels. We walk over to Tunica Roadhouse where we were staying, my favorite place to play, and historically unluckiest. Doh! She goes up to the room to drop off our coats while I head to the bar for another beer. Same paytables as Shoe, so I stuck with what worked. I got paid off in minutes this time. Play one more hand, cash out, now up $76 more! Now with beer in hand, I finally went toward the Double STP machines that I was hoping to focus more on over the weekend (didn't touch them Sat/Sun). Before that though, took these pics out of superstition. I often read the game stats on WMS machines if the option appears on the main screen. This was noteworthy because no one had hit a Bierhaus bonus in 2 days! Tunica is slow folks. It ended up being a good timing reset. Within 10 minutes, I hit this. Then about another 15 minutes later. Another straight flush! For the next ~hour, no huge hits, but I seem to make every draw. Next to me I'm chatting with the guy next to me, and I'm trying to give him some of my luck as he's playing 3 line quarters! Both of us have been dumbfounded by how often I'm filling in draws. Along the way we talk about various casinos and other things. When it came to STP, he said his biggest hit was a dealt 5X royal for $15k. Eventually I had to go to the bathroom (damn beer), and when I get back I see him nearly bust on his last $100 on the night. He does goes bust but he's still chatting with me about Vegas VP and watching me for a bit. A few moments later I get KQJT of clubs. I look over at his machine, see a random Ace of clubs on it, point to it and say, "You're gonna be pissed if I get one of these." Then I hit draw. "Holy Shit!" I couldn't believe it! And he couldn't either! He was a terribly a good sport about it and congratulated me. My gf gave up on those machines awhile back, but still was in the area, so she heard me going nuts and came back over. I cashed this out soon after. 8th royal, 4th in Tunica (3 of those in the last 15 months). And royals in back-to-back Tunica trips! Also believe it or not, my first royal when just playing 1 line! Wow! I wish I would have quit then, but I never quit after a royal. The hit machine mostly shut off. And I think I bled about $70 back in the next 3 hours. I was close to hitting two royals in one day though at times. And this would have been a $250 kick in the nuts with my second KQJT draw of the night, but I would have still taken it. But still came out over $200 ahead for the trip, I'll take that every time!
