    Third dealt Royal Flush at National Harbor. I got this on October 7, 2020. Unlike MacArthur saying "I shall return" I never thought I would be back after they nerfed the pay tables. You can read the write up I have over at WoV forums if interested. Or, you can ask me questions here.

    Great hit! But where is the multiplier? :)

    so... I know I’ve had this debate with others, but I had heard and seen that you will get the combined 20x multiplier on a dealt Royal but have seen hands like yours that prove otherwise. Any insight on this?

    I thought it was something like 1 of 18 dealt royals will end with a 20x multiplier, not all dealt royals.

    But if I'm remembering correctly, I think he actually got that particular unicorn on a 3 play machine of dstp.

    Found it...he did. https://wizardofvegas.com/forum/gambling/big-wins/31596-dstp-dealt-royal/

    It's a 1 in 15 chance on the deal or draw to activate a multiplier. Got it on the deal on my first dealt royal in this game. Did not get it on the deal or draw my second and third time in this game. I also got a multiplier to activate on the deal after the first 4 cards dealt were royal cards. But the 5th card was not.

    I heard exactly the same... this seems to prove otherwise.

    So...as I believe was mentioned. You don't get the 20x just on a dealt royal. However, if a multiplier pops up on the deal when the royal is dealt.. it converts to 20x regardless if it started as 2x or 10x.

    Based on what I know... on DSTP... you can see dealt Royals with no multiplier but if there is a multiplier it should be 20x. I haven't seen a dealt royal with say a 5x on DSTP.

    But WTF do I know.. I have never had one.

    It is possible to get a multiplier on the draw and not the deal. I was told this by a lady who got a dealt royal on the game with a 10x multiplier. I have no reason to doubt her but cannot confirm that. I would assume in that case you would see all 5 royal cards then a spinner would come up. In my case I saw 4 royal cards, the 10x spinner pop and then the 5th royal card appeared in slot number 5.

    I understand that you can get a multiplier on the draw and why I stated the deal part. I have no idea what happens on the draw even if I beleive the same may happen.

    Are you saying that you were dealt a royal on DSTP and a 10X showed in the 5th position on the deal and you still didn't get a 20x? That is not how I understood the game to work but I really haven't done any research. If that is true, then my dreams are crushed.

    When you got your dealt royal with a 20x.. did you actually get a 10x on the deal then a 10x showed up on the draw?

    When I got the 240k the first 4 spots had royal cards show, then in the 5th spot the spinner started. It stopped on 10x and the final royal card appeared in the 5th spot. At that point I think I was leaning so far back in the chair that I don't remember seeing the other 10x appear. But the counter started racking up credits and I then saw the 20x to the left of the 5 cards.

    Easy rule of thumb for a Unicorn:
    If you see all five Royal cards before a spinner, no Unicorn is possible.
    EDIT: also, in the OP’s case, the spinner showing up HAD to be 10x, based on the programming of the machine. (A dealt Royal with a “deal” multiplier triggers it to 10x+10x)
    Being a SWE this intrigues me; as the game must have been so lopsided they needed to add in that “special function”; to get it to pass math check.

    Not sure what you mean by "lopsided" here. The odds of the 20X royal being so rare naturally?

    If the "unicorn" rule (automatic 20X when you get a dealt royal with any DEAL multiplier) didn't exist, the game wouldn't be legal in any jurisdiction outside of Nevada and in Nevada they would have to display multiple probabilities on hitting the top prize on the payglass. Because the probability of hitting a 20X royal without the rule change would be roughly 1/750 x 1/750 x 1/40,000 = 1 in 22.5 billion.

    Most states forbid top prize probabilities less than 1 in 50M. Nevada is 1 in 100M unless you want to list the odds on the machine. Even Megabucks doesn't bother with that. Megabucks is 1 in 44,739,243. The "Unicorn" rule makes that 20X royal hit 1 in 15 x 649,740 = 1 in 9,746,100 instead.
