How often have you gotten a royal flush at 3Dice?

    I've been getting a little too hooked to this casinos "turbo" auto play mode, which when used on video poker, can get through about 3 hands in 2 seconds. Unfortunately the game pauses everytime you hit a flush or higher and I have to manually press the deal button again. This slows it down to about one hand played per second in the long run.

    Anyway, several hours played and I've recieved one straight flush, but no royal. With odds of about 1 in 40,000 and a rate of play of 1 hand / sec, it should take about 11 hours to see one.

    Does anyone else here play vp on turbo mode at 3Dice frequently? Does 11 hours of constant play sound right?

    Well, odds don't really work that way. Because something is around 1 in 40,000, doesnt mean you will see it in 40,000 hands. It means, each hand, if random, youve one chance in 40,000 to hit it.
    Some people will never even see a royal flush in a lifetime, let alone a session.

    Agree. I like to play the 50 hand or 100 hands at a time video poker. I have had 4 to a Royal dealt and missed all 50 or 100 hands several times.....not at 3Dice but at many different onlines sites and B&M.

    I have probably hit 50+ Royals since I started playing.............but then that's many years.

    Sorry for the misunderstaning. Yes I do know how odds work (got a minor in stats).

    Doing a quick calc shows that 99 percent of the time, a royalflush should be seen in 51 hours or less, assuming one uses turbo mode and the player is always present to manually restart auto-play each time.

    Personally I think I've probably totalled less than 10 hours on the turbo. Before I started this thread, I was thinking it was longer than that perhaps. In anycase, good to see there are plenty of others hitting this jackpot. I always see screenshots of big slot wins, but not as many for vp, so its good to see their out there :)



    Dcpam, nice!

    Especially for that 2,500$ win on the Bonus DW! I imagined you jumped out of your seat when you saw that!

    I am not a hardcore VP player, but I do know that you can play at less than optimum strategy in order to play for a Royal Flush. Sometimes the difference in odds is quite small, and you sacrifice what autohold is correct as best play, because it is based on thousands and thousands of hands.

    At 3Dice, I usually play some variant of Deuces Wild, and I've hit a couple of them in real. And I don't play a lot. I've played long enough at 3Dice though to see lots of players hit Royals in real on many different variants.

    3Dice does have a wide variety of classic pokers, and I like the interface very much, much like the video terminals in the landbased here.

    Oh, and under your autoplay settings (using the gear under the menu), you can set it to stop higher than a flush I believe.

    Nice, thanks for telling me this.

    They do have a multitude of vp games and occasioanly I've fallen for Deuces Delux, but I usually just play JoB. All the others are less than 99 percent RTP I believe.

    No royals but a few months ago I had 4 wild deuces 5 times in one week. Two were back to back for $600.00 each and others were various wager amounts.

    It was on the game "Triple Pay"

    I haven't even played it again because I figure I used up what luck I had in that game all in that one week!

    I guess i am one of the ones who will play all my life and never get a Royal on VP. I have been playing around 20 years online and never gotten one. Best i have ever gotten was straight flush.

    Sorry to hear. I still fear it happening to me. How many hours do do you put in per week? Some people are likely putting in thousands of hands per day. They'll get him quickly. With that said, 20 is looong time to be going cold!

    Just wanted to update.

    A couple days after starting this thread, I finally got my first RF on 3Dice! I appeared to be on one heck of a burner as shortly after wining that 400$ on a 50cent bet, I won about 420$ off another 50cent bet on the slot game Tutankhamon :cool:

    Petey,

    I normally frown on people who give up so easily. I frequently encounter people who tell me they have no incentive to work hard as they will never be promoted anyway. However, gambling is a totally different thing. If you chase a Royal thinking your luck could change any minute it is akin to chasing losses and could lead you into a downward spiral. So I actually commend you on your thoughts that you resign yourself to not ever getting a royal. Who knows? Maybe you can have an occasional flutter on Joker Poker with 10 bucks and get a sequential royal. Just don't dream about getting one.

    On the other hand, if he's willing to potentially blow about 2300$ he could put his cursed luck to the test on 3Dice!

    Setting the turbo auto-play mode to stop on nothing but the RF, if he didn't get one in 41 hours, then he's in the bottom 1 percentile.

    Sorry if this has been explained or if iv misunderstood, but are you applying land based odds to online video poker? it doesnt work like that..
    Think of it the same way an online slot machine works, on rng.. working out the odds of hitting a jackpot win would be impossible imho
    Please correct me if im talking out of my arse

    I believe your talking out of your arse :p

    The exact odds depends on your strategy, but if your playing anything close to optimal then the odds of hitting a RF on any single hand is about 1 in 40,000. Both land based casinos and online ones use an RNG.

    The only reason I don't play VP at 3Dice is the lower TRTP.

    Versions like DDB and their All Aces variant have terrible paytables. All the others seem to be pretty ordinary too.

    MGS have the best version of VP...All Aces which is 99.5%+.

    Unfortunately, if you play VP at 3Dice, you're getting a bum deal. Sad really, as I would certainly play there if they matched MGS and RTG.

    Agreed. For me the only reason I play there is because I find the fast auto-play entertaining. I usually just play 9/6 JoB. If I'm playing at MG I'll play moslty ALL-ACES (99.91 RTP) or if a bonus is in play, then Level-Up JoB (99.79 RTP).

    haven't played VP yet, but always wanted to...a basic question here...

    do you hold 2-3 cards to the RF, especially if there's a pair..??

    I don't play level up any more.

    I've seen something I didn't like.

    There is a bug where sometimes the first or second level freezes, and you have to close the game and restart. Trouble is, it does NOT return to the state you left it. Instead, it plays ahead without you making any decisions, sometimes right to the top. Now, something about that bothers me terribly. Everyone knows I'm not one to shout "rigged"...and I'm not here....but something about taking VP hold choices out of my hands and playing several levels automatically suggests that it MIGHT know the final winnings amount BEFORE the first hand is dealt i.e. predetermined.

    I don't know for sure, so I put my money where my mouth is and avoid it like the plague. It might appear to pay 99.6%, but I'm not convinced it is entirely random. It MIGHT be, but since I'm not 100%, I don't play it.
