hello to all,
this is my first post. my english is not perfect so please forgive me if i make mistakes. and if you reply please use simple words and try to avoid slang expressions as i learned oxford english at school lol. :)
I am a big fan of online gambling. I like poker, blackjack tournaments and casino games like blackjack, caribbean poker, video slots, video poker.
Some weeks ago i was very lucky. I deposited 25 euros at an online casino and i got a huge 500 % bonus. I played deuces wild videopoker and of course i hoped that i would win a little.:D
after a while (maybe after 50 hands) i hit a natural royal flush which paid 4000 :p. I bet 0,25 x 5 a hand. So i won 1000 euros by the royal flush. then i had a little more than a 1000 euros in my account. so i thought i could make bigger bets and i bet 0,5 x 5 a hand. after a while (maybe after some hundreds of hands) i hit a natural royal flush again :). wow. this time i won 2000 euros. now i had about 3000 euros in my account. well, to make it short when i had cleared the bonus by playing deuces wild i had about 2500 euros and so i had won about 2500 euros. now who is good at math? please tell me this:
- how likely is it that this happens? I mean what are the odds of hitting two natural royal flushs when you play lets say 500 hands of deuces wild? the software was boss media by the way.
- does it make sense to go on playing deuces wild or even videopoker or even to gamble now? I mean i was extremely lucky so maybe i will have a lot of bad luck in the future because that would be justice? ;)

Hello gamblingmace, welcome to the forum!

The probability of hitting a natural royal flush in deuces wild is about 0.000022% so to get it once is extremely lucky but then to get it again after only about 500 hands is incredibly lucky indeed.

If this happened to me i would withdraw straight away and enjoy my winnings as this is definitely not going to happen on a regular basis and it would be a shame to just play it back. :):thumbsup:

thank you for saying welcome. and you are right about this: "The probability of hitting a natural royal flush in deuces wild is about 0.000022%".
But what is the probability of hitting two natural royal flushs in about 500 hands of deuces wild? who can figure that out? I cant do so as i dont know much about math.

According to the Wizard, the probability is 0.000022, not 0.000022%.
i.e. it's 0.0022%, or one in 45,454 hands

I could be wrong, but I think that means:-
Chances of 1 RF in 500 hands = One in 90.9
Chances of 2 RF in 500 hands = One in 8,264

gamblingmace; Whether that's right or wrong one thing is certain - you have been incredibly lucky! :thumbsup:
Most people never see even one Royal Flush in their lifetimes.
Please don't waste your winnings chasing another RF - take your money & enjoy it in other ways.

Well done! :notworthy

If it feels good...do it!

Hi there! Your english is real good....I mean, compared to my husbands:eek2:

I've considered your question & it was really just too deep for me at this time of the morning...so, I say, "If it feels good, do it"

The Best of Luck to you!!

thank you folks. yes, one in 8264 may be correct, kasinoking (slotaholic lol :))
so i was really extremely lucky. and no, i dont chase another royal flush. i have already withdrawn most of my winnings. when i did so i felt a little sorry for the owner of the casino. it must have hurt him to lose 2500 euros as the casino seems to be a rather small one. i hope they survive that. on the other hand when a player loses all of his money the owner of the casino probably doesnt pity him, does he? ;)

sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. thats life. :)

btw i hit a royal flush several times so far. when playing texas hold 'em poker i hit it three times and i hit it four times playing videopoker. so it looks like i am a lucky guy.

thank you for praising my english. a lot of people have told me that it is real good. once a guy from england said my english is better than his lol. :)
