I realize this thread is now 10 years old but I was intrigued by the original poster’s strategy so I went to a B&M casino Thursday and gave it a whirl. I started with $100. I hit (3) 4 of a kinds, all on different machines on the same little island then hit a Royal on 50 cents for $2000 all within 40 min. I’m not exaggerating on any of this. This strategy is the real deal.
I don't see how every different provider would conceivably replicate the exact same exploitable behaviour when simply programming in a random draw would be so much easier.
Maybe report back once you've got more than forty minutes worth of data?
The only way I could think that this process might give the appearance of working is if VP slots are programmed to make a specific payout regardless of the players choices.
But since I don't play VP a lot of this "strategy" goes over my head... He seems to be saying don't go after lower paying/more likely combinations and instead go after the royal flush at all costs?
Also maybe that the left most card for some reason is the most prominent?.. because programming is... left to right???

Another possiblity is that by chasing the highest combination you drastically increase volatility, thus giving you the chance to see increased gains in the short term.

I should have clarified that I only play this on the older game king machines. That probably makes a big difference in your opinion. And I don’t think he’s saying don’t go after lower paying hands because by keeping unsuited face cards you’re really only going after a high pair or a straight. You have a better chance at hitting the higher paying hands as well as lower by only keeping one face card like 3 of a kind for instance. But I think he’s also saying that the program just doesn’t respond well to it. I matter what the deal is, it works. You can put $100 in any of these machines, never fall under $80, and hit at least a 4 of a kind in less than an hour but probably multiple.

This might be the case.

Eldorado played on Game King machines.
The manufacturer of those machines IGT offers so-called 'class II' and 'class III' Video Poker machines,
one type works with RNG based on cards, and for the other one the cards don't matter for the RNG/RTP.
