    Believe it or not I have had way more redraw Royals than I have had dealt ones.

    That is because on the redraw Royals you have already discarded five shitty cards, regardless that one of those discards maybe a ten at times.

    That might be true if you have an equal amount of dealt hands to redraw hands. When playing video poker you are rarely redrawing the entire hand. Because of that, you should have way more dealt Royals than redraw Royals. I have one really bad on Dealt Royals I don't think I have ever had one on a multi-line game.

    So I had another kind of "first" yesterday. Again, this might be something that those of you that play much more VP than me have encountered and had to deal with. It had to deal with holding a card which doesn't "hold". I certainly have had machines, as I am sure everyone has where the buttons, sometimes skipped. Occasionally even costs me a small payout, three of a kind or such and I let it go. Yesterday playing $1, bonus, I held 3,4,6,7 of hearts. I drew the 5 of hearts but in the process my 4 of hearts disappeared and turning into a jack of clubs. I was like WTF?

    I wasn't going to let my $250 payout go without at least making some noise. I figured that is all it would come to, I would complain and be told "thems the breaks". So the slot attendant opens the machine, pushes a few buttons and is able to see that my original 5 cards were 3,4,6,7 hearts and something else. But it said that I only held the 3,6,7, which was wrong. So she calls a manager, who comes over, verified that my original cards were 3,4,6,7 hearts and I drew the 5. She was very nice and accommodating. Said she plays VP and knows these machines sometimes skip and she authorizes the attendant to pay me. I was very pleasantly surprised at how it was handled.

    Just a few minutes ago, a lady hit this while I was picking off plays on the machine next to her.



    She followed that up by quad deuces x 12 a few hands later!

    When this happens the outcome is entirely in your hands, even if the button proves to be faulty. If you treat the responding employees with respect, chances are they will sympathize with you and you will get paid. But they aren't required to pay you. I've seen angry, hysterical people argue and shout and they don't get a thing out of it. Players have to remember they're dealing with other human beings who rarely have power in their hands. These people will go into the discussion expecting civility, but if they detect even the slightest touch of irritability it will set them off. That is why you were pleasantly surprised when it was over.

    Happened to me before. On STP with a big multiplier, got dealt something like JJ696. Accidentally held JJ69. Talked to a slot attendant who wasn't super enthusiastic, but I got a manager to check it out and they opened it, saw the deal/draw cards, we figured out what I "should" have gotten, and I got paid the difference.

    I disagree with all of the "what I shoulda got" situations. By the time you corrected the holds, you would've gotten different draw cards. You don't deserved to be paid on these mistakes.

    I had 3 non-dream card dealt royals
    1 redraw
    can't remember the other ones like holding 1-4.

    3 dream card royals. Those are fun.

    Of course you deserve to get paid, at least in terms of the timing. Nothing is changed if I hit draw right "now" or wait 5 seconds then hit draw. I still have a 1/47 chance on a 4-card hold and 1/1081 chance on a 3 card hold.

    What's your solution then, if someone makes a 3RF hold over 4RF because a button sticks? Should the casino re-set the hand and let you draw again?

    You have to push the button a la Lawrence Welk- a one and a two....
