Who needs a royal when you can just get dealt this.....

Length of play is the biggest profit center possible for a casino. Any old bumpkin can beat them in a narrow time window. But we hem and haw, trying to max out pay out when that goal has already occurred! Make your 10-50% and get the hell off the machine. You will be best served with this strategy. You stay, you pay.

Unfortunately, time is always the casinos friend. My average session might be 10,000 buck coin in on one of my favorite games Joker Kings. I’m going to give up over 1 1/2 percent long term. That only works out to be 160 bucks or so in that session, but normally without a Royal I would lose close to 400 bucks. Royals only come along for me about every 10 trips or so which would be based on hands played. Players including myself tend to get reckless toward the end of their sessions trying to get their few hundred bucks back before they go home. Usually ends in disaster. Our problem is we love to play the game and that is great for the casino.
Wow, I'm a bum compared to that. :lol: I'm probably around 1000 to 1500. I did play more in the past.
I get into trouble if I switch denoms, stairstep, make balance fortresses, etc. All those strategies drive me nuts and then I chase lol. If I pretty much flatbet I do much better but ur right u do tend to lose 4 to 6 percent of ur money played unless u hit something.

Hopefully very rich. I wonder if that person also utilizes the 500 dollar denom (as in $2,500 per hand) at the new Resorts World place in Vegas lol. I seen it on Slotmassacre's instagram story, and they had everything available on it even Triple Triple Bonus. :lol:

the first two winners were 2 weeks old and last 2 are today.
i really do hate playing TDB but it was either grind it out on DW and maybe see 4 ducks or go home a loser. so went with TDB and my wife landed that hand and the 4 aces. i need more bankroll playing .50 machines or a better pay table it is much worst than a deuces wild game but i will say this i was doing very well first 2hours on TDB 9/5 but after that downward swing of no 4oak came and yep needed that rescue which did came, i may retire quarter play entirely my first plan was to play .50 til a royal comes now im thinking just stick with it.

thus ending my rant and headache you all had to read about =/
yes indeed these are not atm machines but infact gambling machines i was prepared for another loss this, .5 jackpot recoup'ed my previous losses as you all know i was in a downswing of my life (1.5 royal down on .25) and this win couple'd with previous wins makes everything all right.

still thinking about reverting to .25 play avoid the tax hit but if i have good year then id regret pushing out bigger money

Thanks OtaBill, i dont know if im giving up deuces wild for triple double bonus, 97.06 vs 970.2 seems to be the same if in for the long haul. but suprisingly changing games did help. and higher limit just means 98.91 vs 98.15 again my computer sim's show tdb can really hit it out of the park for awhile if luck is my friend but being lucky on dw just means a few if that jackpots. and the casino is comping me and giving me good freeplay, one thing i like at my casino if you play through 200$ you automatically get 25$ food comp, id feel lucky to get that atlantic city,

i did find a job after the lock down here so im also happy for that, yes losing money without a steady job just made things worst but landed my job and landed that jackpot it was bad 2 months ago.
