Don't lose sight of the fact that thousands upon thousands of hands are being played in the contests. Inevitably, there will be royals, and, even more importantly in the multiline games, there will be dealt royals, or other extremely good hands.

Congrats!

Go play 450,366 deals in a casino and you will have a 50% chance of having at least one dealt royal there!

With 1,496,081 deals, you will have a 90% chance.

And with 2,992,161 deals, you will have a 99% chance.

4,488,242 deals implies a 99.9% chance; 5,984,322 a 99.99% chance; …

Of course, you could also have lost a bit of money along the way, especially if you are in that 0.01% of people who would still not have had a casino dealt royal.

On second thought, good luck on your 2nd dealt royal … on this website. And re-congrats on the 1st one!

If anyone plays infinity hands, I promise to give them the full value of TWO dealt royals.

So... there goes that exception.

So, Eduardo, you're saying that there's [not] a chance?

Jim Carrey is going to be soooo disappointed.
