Sequential Royal – Playing With An Edge
I not too long ago hit a sequential royal flush. I used to be seated close to a husband and spouse who had been taking part in for decrease stakes than I used to be. The person particularly was in full mumble about how dangerous his luck was that day. (Complainers are widespread amongst video poker gamers. I’m certain you’ve sat subsequent to a man identical to this.)
We had not shared a phrase with one another earlier than the royal, however they each congratulated me on it. I stated, “Sure, a sequential royal is fairly uncommon.” He hadn’t observed it was sequential earlier than I discussed it, after which he advised me what dangerous luck it was that the sport didn’t pay additional for sequentials.
“I don’t take into account an $8,000 royal to be dangerous luck. And even when someday sooner or later I’m taking part in on a machine with a sequential royal bonus, which I virtually by no means do, immediately’s royal has nothing to do with the percentages of me hitting one other one on a distinct machine.”
He advised me he had solely hit one sequential in his life. I commented that I had hit fairly a number of, and in reality didn’t even know how one can do an correct rely.
He checked out me and stated that sequentials are so uncommon that no one has hit fairly a number of. And counting them wouldn’t be tough. Even an fool might do it.
“Actually?” I responded. “Really, I’ve performed a number of Fifty Play and Hundred Play and the playing cards are so small I often don’t even test to see if they’re sequential. And, in actual fact, one time I used to be dealt a sequential royal on a nickel Hundred Play machine for $20,000. Does that rely for one sequential or 100?”
He backtracked shortly. “I wasn’t contemplating multi-line video games. And sure, I can see that with multi-line video games within the equation, it’s attainable to hit a number of them. And, wow, $20,000! That’s fairly cool!”
“Thanks,” I stated. “Not dangerous for an fool, huh?”
