You have to play a lot of hands. I think on average it's dealt every 625 thousand hands or so. My first 2 million hands I was never dealt a royal. Next million hands I was dealt 5. One of my dealt royals was preceded by a hand in which I had discarded the deal and drew a royal (a few hundred hands apart).

I guess in the long-run it all averages out (mathematically). But the long-run can be a lifetime or more.

1 in 649,740 on 52-card deck.

The odds to hit it has nothing to do with how many hands you play. It’s not due.

Your chances of getting one on the next hand stay the same.
However, the chances of a person getting one increase if he is going to play a million hands as opposed to someone who is going to play a hundred hands.

Not the chance, the odds.

You get more chances when you play more but the odds stay same.

It’s like playing 10 when dealt 3 aces, you have 10
chances or opportunities, but odds for each hand is same.

I want to bet that I will get a dealt royal flush in X number of hands. Would you offer the same odds I won't get one over a million hands or if I only play one hundred.

I'd bet someone $100 they don't get one in 100 hands, I won't bet someone they don't over a million hands.
I might offer odds of 10-1 he doesn't get one in a hundred hands. I certainly wouldn't offer 10-1 on a million hands.

Been play VP for many years. Only had 2 Royals dealt to me. One on a DDBP and one on a DW. Both .25 machines.

Tap the royal flush in the pay table 6x exactly .45 seconds apart then deal exactly .67 seconds after the 6th tap

You seem to be joking but it’s not funny at all, somehow.

That's silly. Real players know it's .73 seconds.

These are crude calculations as the RNG is much faster than you might think. Thus the timing must be measured to a much tighter tolerance, i.e. to 6 decimals. My calculations show EXACTLY 0.649740 s. Additionally, for multiple dealt royals, you can omit tapping the paytable RF icon by starting the timer when you deal the hand that gives you the RF. Then divide the hands per RF of that suit (160,xxx) by the speed of the RNG (random #/second) which will give you the time in seconds. Then simply deal again at that exact instance (or multiples thereof)...it's THAT easy!

It may take you 4 or 5 times to get the timing right with your fingers so be patient...
