    As viewed by the casino how do you compare the following-- quarter vp player, plays 6 hands per minute for 10 hours at job 9/6; 3600 hands. Second is a dollar vp player playing 1.5' hands per minute at 9/6 job for the same 10 hours -- 900 hands. All numbers are fictional but relevance is degree of increase in amount played vs. hands per minute. After 10 minutes the quarter player has played 60 hands at 1.25$ per hand for 75$ risked. The other player has played 15 hands at 5$ per hand. Are the players viewed similarly? By the casino for purposes of comping?
    My question then follows if the $ player plays 3 hands per hour rather than 1.5 but for only five hours and total risk is the same do the offers remain similar? What the hell is this about?
    I recall there was some formula used which prevented a player betting 15,000$ on red one time from the 25$ red better risking 25$ at a time until the total was 15,000$ risked (however long that was)--(600 spins) from receiving the same value by the casino. Clarification in general terms for a general hypothesis.

    If guess what I am asking is with X dollars to risk is it better to go higher slower or go smaller and play faster ? Or does it really matter anymore.

    IMHO, since the amount wagered is really all that matters, it depends on how much time you want to spend in the casino.

    I go to Las Vegas so often and typically, there are lots of other (non-gambling) things that I want to do, so I like to get my action "out of the way" as quickly as possible.

    If we are talking VP, I think it boils down to coin in when it comes to offers. But, smaller denomination with more time offers less variance.
