I’d like some feedback on how rare it is for a quarter progressive to reach $2,269.
That's probably the 8/5 game listed in vpfree2. The royal resets at $2,000.

Probably a decade ago, I hit a $2500+ quarter rf progressive on a one-line TDB machine at Lone Butte. That was when progressive meters were good. I remember one night at Casino AZ when the AWAKs progressive on the DDB Bank was over $1,000. Nowadays with meters increasing at a snail's pace, a progressive over $2000 would be rare on a normal rf. The one exception IMO, a single line sequential rf progressive.

I see. Even with a $2,000 reset, her win equals a $1,135 JOB progressive RF. Pretty rare sight. What do you figure would be her RTP?

The progressive I hit and the large rf one's I saw in the past were $1000 reset,. The AWAK's one I mentioned was a $500 reset.

Scammers in Uncasville? The venue is in the middle of nowhere. AP, I defy you to discern anything legible beyond New Jersey on the card. In Caesars AC, no important information is ever verbalized, nor is that necessary. This should formally become the industry standard. I do concede that if that lady voiced any objection, my own hit would have been a one year ban!

Analyzer says 100.4% for the 9076 coin royal. Plus there's value from the rising meter as you play.

Royal cycle is around 40k hands or $50k coin-in at quarters. If the meter is running at 0.25%, then the average royal jackpot would hit around $2125.

Caesars tends to be stingy with its meters. The JoB progressive you play could be as low as 0.1%.

Fast meters do exist, although they're probably more prevalent on games with bad base pay tables.

FAA, your playing technique is catching on. Lady next to me was (consistently) betting 4 coins per line!

$40 per whack!

I'm still new to this. I asked her if she could hold up her driver's license for the photo, and she looked at me like I was crazy.

Thanks. I felt bad for her because she dumped many hundreds before switching machines. And probably many more at the next one. But Super Aces is a feast or famine game.
