Although more difficult, UX Bonus Streak is still vultureable.
You are correct. While vultures have a big edge for one hand at a time, they do not always win. And she said she ALWAYS wins

I like single hand UX sometimes, but nowhere in my state offers it. I wish they didn't program them to force you to play exactly 3, 5 or 10 hands. I loathe multihand UX

UX is a big drain in my unpopular opinion. It will suck money out of you to compensate for extremely rare events, while at the same time collecting it's 2% or more mathematical advantage. That royal that you're hoping will hand after a full house or flush, odds of that happening are about 1 in 2 million on a per hand basis. And you're still paying the house edge mathematically speaking all within those hands until you achieve these lightning strike events that are built into the game's math. Also, If your VP wins are spread out instead of back-to-back, you will be extinguished quickly!

That said, if you like UX, good for you, I hope your good results continue! :up:
Assuming you're near the Detroit area based on previous post. Toledo has one 5☆ machine that has single hand UX on it.
I'll keep that in mind, I'm not though, I'm a couple hours north. Which means Toledo is even further unfortunately. :ouch: My motto is anything that's 3 or more hours away is an overnight trip :lol:

I guess we'd have to define "always." On a hand for hand basis, I agree. On a daily basis, it's difficult to have a losing day. Weekly, I'll go out on a limb and say it's quite impossible to lose strictly playing that way.

Anyway though, I doubt that person was a vulturer anyway.

Although Toledo does have decent higher paying games, definitely not worth the while of an overnight trip.
