I hit two (2) royal flushs. One in Las Vegas on the strip near the Flamingo Hilton (can't remember the casino). I won $1200 USD cash. It was on a bar side flat glass top video poker system. The hands were getting hotter, and hotter, and hotter, and finally it went BOOM..... AKQJ10 of SPADES.
Next, I hit a AKQJ10 Diamonds on the StarLite Boat in Chicago off N. Kline Ave in the lake michigan bay there. Hit $1000 I think on that one.
I don't play video poker like a HOUND or anything. I go to the casino like 4-5 times a year at most. My game: $20 on the Don't Pass at craps. If I win? I got my gas money home!!!!! Almost works every time. : ) try it. Craps (the don't pass) statistically is the best bet in ANY casino (if you're not counting cards at black jack). Online poker is very cool, but am always leary when my bank roll use to GO UP.......now...the new ALGO's slowy take your $ away. It's not like it used to be. That's for sure.
For decade playing in Poker Stars I hit a royal flush 2 times, one of them in the freeroll and a straight flush a few times. Honestly, in the freeroll or micro limit you are not really paying attention about that especially when you win a small pot. But after that when I recognize it I go back and see the hand history .
At least a half a dozen Royal flushes at least a half a dozen straight flushes every four of a kind you could imagine. so I guess I've had every hand you can think of in any combination I've beat aces with A9. I've beat 3s with 23. Good luck on the tables everyone and as always have fun
Twice actually, once in a small bar game (hearts) when a Qh hit the turn. The other time in a $120 tournament at the Borgata (diamonds), Jd on the turn. But never online despite the tremendous number of hands I've played since 2004. A few straight flushes though.
I have played video poker since the 1970s.My wife and i are both video poker players.We used to go to las vegas,twice a year for many years,and only play video poker.Our normal stay in vegas was always 5 or 6 days,and video poker was the only game that we played.Since casinos have opened in ohio,and indiana,we dont go to vegas anymore.We both have hit many royal flushes.It does take alot of hands statistic wise to hit one,but you can also sit down and the first hand hit one.Its all about the number of hands that machine has been played without dealing one.In order to hit a royal,you always have to be drawing for one.Like throwing away a winning pair,to hold 2 or 3 cards to a royal.In our experence,the older machines were alot easier to hit a royal on,compared to the new machines being made now.We dont hit near as many as we did several years ago.All i can say if you play alot of video poker,you def should hit some.
Yes I have hit a royal flush, and I think I remember seeing someone else get one as well at a table I played at. This was of course online, as playing enough hands live to see a royal would be very painful.
I've only ever hit it once online. All hearts laid out it was a beautiful sight. My opponent also caught a regular flush on the river, and so after we went all in and I showed my cards he was like, "Was that really a royal flush? I'm not even mad."
I've been playing online for about 16 years. I only play tournaments, I really suck at cash games. Anyway for several years I played several tournaments at a time for 10 to 12 hours a day. There are no telling how many millions of hands I've played.
So to answer your question, yes I've had several Royals. I had one last month, but it had been a few years since my last one.
I don't play near as much as I had before.
JUST KILLIN TIME,,,WAITING FOR TIME TO KILL ME...
I've actually had a royal flush more times than you would think. There was one game where I got it 2 hands back-to-back and I couldn't even get anyone to call so that people would see it. It was almost like it never happened, lol. Thankfully, I saved the hand replay. I'm not on the computer it is saved on so I can't share them in this post, but I'll post them later on.
I have only hit a few times. I have hit with 5 card draw, which gained me a nice pot against a full house. That was a wild game that night and there were pistols drawn because of my hand. Backroom games were so much fun back in the day.
I have also hit with hold em, but it was a bunch of guys sitting around a table at work killing time during a break. Never have hit even a straight flush in the game since.
