    You were having a nice winning streak there! Good to recognize when things are drying up and taking a break! Question- are you better off playing max at $1 rather than 1 credit at $5 just in case you do hit a RF?

    Depends on the paytables he finds. The payables he's playing, I would think he's probably better off max betting the dollar level.

    Especially with the "AC Joker Poker" he's playing. In this game, a Royal isn't the goal as it only pays 100 for 1 like any straight flush. The goal is 5 of a kind, which is actually easier to make. When you bet 1 to 4 coins, five of a kind pays 400 for 1, but when you bet 5, it pays what a royal normally does at 800 for 1!! So betting less than max drops the return from 97.19% to 93.55%. Yuck!

    So @Byron, if you're going to bet one, please don't on this version of Joker Poker, or Triple Double Bonus (Aces w/ kicker pay only 400 for 1 instead of 800 for 1 for less than max bet).

    well hell of a day. I did hit the straight flush on this one which was nice! But I played too high for too long like that guy who flew too close to the sun, I lost it all, left around 3am drove home, no handpays with a lot of slots, tables were back and forth but lost so many key double downs and would bet for bonus, miss it and then it came next hand. Gambling sure is fun, but damn 5k in a day hurts

    Yes yes yes to bet max lower denom. $5 a hand isnt that low either and royals are rare but still with the 2 ive hit if i was on $1 instead of $5 machine but still bet $5 i would be up 6k more lifetime from video poker and i havent played it all that often, im usually a type of player i jump around from high limit reels to live poker, then often tables too baccarat roulette blackjack and dabble in other games like pai gow, 3 card, high card flush, i just enjoy most all the games, except craps, never liked that much for some reason. Roulette is actually one of my favorites but i hate the crowded scene around the tables and dont always want to play high liimt, thats why i ilke slots privacy, no one bothers you, but odds arent great. Slots have been my biggest loser overall from gambling, but also my biggest winning day was on slots. Foxwoods 2016, I hit for 4k, 2k, 1800, and 6750 in one day! One hell of a lucky day! I ended up ahead 10k on foxwoods that summer and have tons of stuff at my house from the comps! MGM springfield was awful, never won much there. Rivers in NY, just as bad. Mohegan was treating my good on the slots but last trip ugh . others were hitting good in high limit room and i did take some crazy shots with $5 9 line too just wasnt hitting anyting at all! See my profile picture, this is not the first royal i hit on $5 one credit\its the second and other was on max quarters years ago and paid similar to the $5 machine! Hitting for max on the $5 sure would be awesome, but this year ive been mostly a $1k a day trip player and doing well on quick trips lately until this past weekend. I am ok now, just hurts more if your a player used to bringing only $500-1000 last few trips and never losing more than a $1000 in past 6 months, then one quick trip lose 5k.

    Im going to try a different casino, switch it up a little tonight trying
    Out. Twin River Rhode Island I never been there it’s probaby only casino in northeast I never
    Visited yet. It’s far but I have a friend out that way who also
    Wants to go tonight. How is it, anyone been before?
    Also I’m going to try a different strategy this time hopefully it will work better.

    Just don't play video poker there.

    It's a racino with Class II machines, iirc.
