Huck Seed Hits $670k Video Poker Royal Flush

It's pretty clear what's happened. Black Friday was a conspiracy by the casinos to drive high-stakes players to their $100 video poker machines.

They knew that dedicated grinders like Huck Seed would be helpless against their need for poker action. It's all so obvious.

Seed tweeted this photo yesterday, clearly showing a royal flush worth over $670,000. Since then a few more facts have come to light, mainly thanks to Allen Kessler's encyclopedic knowledge of video poker.

  • Machine was at Aria in Las Vegas.
  • Seed was playing $100 per credit, five credits per hand, for a total of $500 per hand.
  • Seed bought a $40,000 ticket to avoid the hassle of manually feeding in 400 c-notes.
  • Seed has admitted to regularly taking $40k-$50k shots at video poker.
  • With the progressive jackpot and all comps, plus a high rate of hands per hour, Seed's EV was in the range of $1,500/hour.
