the value of the royal flush?

Post by stevel96a1 »

winning a thousand dollars today is still nice but it had real good power back in the 80s early 90s heck even in 2000, did they have fpdw machines far back then?

i feel like the 1.25 bet win a 1,000 is losing its value

You're still getting 800 for 1. If you want a bigger jackpot than $1000, play higher denominations.

The $1.25 has equally lost it's value. A Marvel comic cost $1 in 1987, today it's $3.99.
Perhaps game makers might consider making ten coins standard at the .25 cent level. Problem with that is every royal would leave a paper trail.

Play progressives if you want RFs worth more than $1,000.

im just sayin, you can play higher but is it really worth it after the tax form?
and a 1,000$ goes alot further in 80s and 90s heck id take early 2000 then it is today.
and i understand 1.25 is alot more back then too but again a 1,000 cash out w/o tax form was the sweet spot back then i guess im saying its the equivalent of hiting a .50 royal w/o the tax form back then

That's not how money works.
$1,000 today buys less than it did in 2,000AD
$1.25 today buys less than it did in 2,000AD
You are playing at a lower stake in real worth so you get paid money worth less.

Well if I had to choose between win a thousand in the. 80s vs today I'd choose the 80s.
Today I need to capture 2 royals to equal the same amount 40 years ago.
If there w as no tax form .50 would be equal to the .25 and I'm sure 30 years from now the .50 will go the way of the.25

You'd also have to work twice as long to earn the money to play $1.25 per spin.
On the flip side, people playing $5 blackjack are risking half of what they did in the 1970s.

your right i would but i wouldn't have to pay taxes on that 1,000$ RF now would i?

so all being equal again the 1,000 RF no taxed form generated in the 80s as it is today however it did lose value as prices go up
