    This is still theoretical, but there's a good chance I may need to burn a large freeplay later today at the Gold Coast.
    Smaller amounts I usually use .25 9/6 JOB but it might take a while to swing through $1500. I would like to avoid a W2G, but on the other hand I would't mind a BIG W2G.

    Any thoughts? Thanks.

    If you still go with the 25 cent VP (and assuming max bet) it will only take about an hour and a half to go through $1500 once to where you can cash it out... less time if you are a fast player.

    If VP is your thing the lower the denomination you play the lower the variance against your bankroll. To that end if an hour and a half is a lot more time than you want to spend you could look at what they have for 50 cent and/or $1 video poker ($1 video poker at $5 per spin should take an average player less than 30 minutes to run through one time).

    Depends on if you want the lowest variance, which will let you convert FP to cash at the closest mathematical rate to the amount you start with, or if you want the highest variance, which will give you the best chance of a big hit but also the possibility of a smaller overall percentage.

    For Option 1, go with JoB at $1. At $1 JOB, only the royal will be a hand pay/W2G.

    I'm thinking triple play or five play video poker at the quarter level.

    False alarm! Sorry. I only ended up with $100. Made $135 by hitting quads on 8/5 Bonus on quarters. Thanks for the replies.
