    Video Poker Deluxe..... $217,591.55 jackpot.

    Player Hits Rare Sequential Royal Flush for $217,000 Jackpot



    Lots of video poker players dream of hitting a royal flush. Some of us have even played on and off for, oh, 20 years and have never hit one.
    Not bitter. At all.
    One lucky video poker player at Red Rock Resort not only hit a royal, they hit a rare sequential royal flush.
    The player’s $5 bet reaped an incredible $217,591.55 jackpot. And the Internet went wild.
    The stuff gambler’s dreams are made of. Photo Red Rock Resort.

    We shared a photo of the sequential royal on our Twitter account, resulting in more than 130,000 Tweet impressions. This has nothing to do with the story, we just like to show off.
    The sequential royal flush jackpot is remarkable for several reasons.
    First, it’s remarkable we didn’t even know this existed.
    Apparently, some video poker games require sequential royal flushes appear in order, left to right. The player at Red Rock nailed a “reversible sequential,” reading right to left.
    Second, that’s a metric hell-ton of money.
    Third, seriously, 20 years. Just saying.
    The jackpot was won on a game called Video Poker Deluxe. Note to self.
    How rare is a sequential royal flush? Well, the elusive royal flush (where cards can appear in any order) is 1-in-40,000. No small feat, obviously.
    The odds of getting a sequential royal are about (wait for it) 2.4 million-to-1.
    Or as we call it in Las Vegas, Saturday.
    Defying the odds is what Vegas is all about. Well, that and cleavage. But mostly that first thing.

    Too bad Dr. Feelgood couldn’t have hit it. Pretty sure that’s his home casino.

    I actually walk by that machine a lot.

    Hit a 50 cent Royal back on Dec 17th....not sequential...looks like it was a day after that sequential hit...I played 25 bucks in that sequential royal machine after I hit it...I should have tipped the waitress the 25 bucks...

    So the snow in Vegas is having a massive malfunction to the Video Poker machines here at Red Rock today....

    First I hit 4 bullets w/ kickah within my first couple minutes...then I go investigate the Reversible Royal machine jackpot only to hear that familiar jackpot sound (bomp bomp bomp bomp bomp bomp bomp bomp) and turn to see some freak playing 5 dollar Double Double nail 4 bullets for 4 Grand!!

    Back to it!!http://cloud.tapatalk.com/s/5c6f3165...072607_762.mp4

    This thread really made me wonder: people really gamble on these machines? What for? The real poker with the real people is MUCH more interesting than that.

    You're right and wrong at the same time, LOL. You see, people don't like difficult stuff. And the poker is difficult if you play with real people. Those machines are much more simple.

    It makes some sense, but I still don't get it. Winning at slot machines such as these can't be controlled. It's all about pure luck. At the same time, when you play poker with real people, you're in control. That's why I prefer to play real poker, for example. BTW, not so long ago I have found a whole lot of nice offshore USA friendly poker rooms on this professionalrakeback.com site. I really like it. Because there are a lot of small fish players in these rooms, LOL. I earned something like $2000 last month just by using my skill.
