All of my Royal Flushes? Nope, I don't remember them all. Most people start to forget them once they collect more than 1-2. They are more likely to remember the first/last only. Though, I did list most (if not all) of mine in the other thread here and here.

The jackpot odds vary from lottery to lottery, just like the RF odds vary from poker variation to poker variation. However, if you play the most common lotteries and the most common poker variants—you are more likely to win a RF than a jackpot. Since you claim otherwise, can you give some example of a lottery having such great jackpot odds? I only find counterexamples to your claim.
I have been playing Poker since 2011, i have never got any Royal Flush. My best hand so far that i remember was Straight flush 2 to 6, and second best hand is Aces Quads. I hope i will get it sometimes.
I've had a few royal flushes over the years, however the most memorable one wasn't even mine! I had hit quad aces on the floor (I had pocket aces) I had gotten my opponent all in, the turn and river came, both of those cards gave them the royal flush. I was fairly new to online poker at the time, I had my entire bankroll riding in that one hand I was certain I'd win, was a bad beat I'll never forget!
