    Ok, I'll go first:


    Month & year of last trip: Dec 2015
    Primary value played (25c, $1, etc): .25 mostly but we do change it up with .50 and $1
    Primary location played (MGM, CET, etc): CET and Cosmo, pretty even split
    Always max coins (Yes/No): Yes
    Number of premium hands: I'm afraid I have no idea. I'd say <20 on that trip, despite a lot of play
    Number of handpays: None
    Was it a winning trip: No

    I am going to be a little lazy and cut and past some of this from my last trip.

    Month & year of last trip: March 2016
    Primary value played (25c, $1, etc): See below
    Primary location played (MGM, CET, etc): Mostly V/P and MGM but some at Wynn and Planet Hollywood
    Always max coins (Yes/No): Yes
    Number of premium hands: See below
    Number of handpays: 11 or so
    Was it a winning trip: nope


    I would say about 90% of the play this time was at Dollars. 63% on STP, 35% DSTP and 2% non-STP. All DDB. Based on my last trip where I played almost all DSTP, the multipliers definitely happened a lot less that I would have liked but neither MGM or Venetian/P had DSTP at dollars and Venetian only had STP on 5 play, no 10 play. I didn't find it at Quarters at V/P and MGM only has one machine.

    Quarter Level :

    Royal Flush – 0
    Straight Flush – 0
    A’s with kicker - 1
    A’s – 4 (5x)
    2-4s with kicker – 1
    2-4s – 2
    5-Ks – 14


    Dollar Level :

    Royal Flush – 1
    Straight Flush – 2
    A’s with kicker - 3
    A’s – 9
    2-4s with kicker – 4
    2-4s – 16 (3x, (2)5x)
    5-Ks – 46 (3x, 2x)

    Total number of 4oaK - 101

    Other notable hands (to me at least)

    10x Dealt 3oak (1500)
    5x Dealt Full House (2000)
    4x Dealt Full House (1600)

    Trips to Vegas:

    Month & year of last trip: 2/16
    Primary value played (25c, $1, etc): $.50 & $1
    Primary location played (MGM, CET, etc): Mirage & Bellagio
    Always max coins (Yes/No): Yes
    Number of premium hands: If you define "premium hand" as 4oak or better, I estimate 20-24 over 3 days...
    Number of handpays: 2 ( $3000 & $1440 ) The 2nd VP machine I sat down at upon arrival dealt me the $3000 (TDP 4-2's w/kicker)
    Was it a winning trip: About even this time.

    @riders, and anyone else for that matter, have you noticed a tightening of the average number of hands between multipliers for Super Times Pay at MGM casinos?

    Last time I was at the Aria, I was playing the famed row 802 / 803, and the HBMs was HUGE. We're talking 50+ hands between multipliers. Maybe even more.

    The pay tables on that row are already crappy and with the multipliers being so scarce, I hardly played STP or DSTP at all last trip.

    It seems that STP the multipliers come a lot less often than you would expect and I have not been very successful with STP. However, on DSTP they seem to come more than the expected double. I have also noticed they seem to come in bunches/cycles. I am sure this is just my feeling but if I haven't seen them in awhile, I will get a few within the next few hands.
