    $800 bankroll
    $14,000 coin-in requirement
    25c single-line 9/6 Jacks or Better (11,200 hands played)
    Like 15%?

    What about 25c 8/5 Bonus Poker 5-play? (6.25 a shot, but only 2240 rounds)

    Thanks!!

    This doesn't help his question at all. All those data tables assume you will never quit.

    For 9/6 JoB, it's less than 5% (3.81%) with flawless play to get $14k coin-in on $800. Probably close to 5% in actual play.

    Unfortunately, my halfassed simulator doesn't do multihands, but I would expect the RoR to at least triple (more variance w/poorer game).

    I get 3.77% and 18.04%. Three different answers but close enough.

    Agreed. I assume your calculators do random sampling like mine, so you will get sampling errors, but doesn't really matter much with a big enough sample.

    So yeah, I would personally mostly stick to the one play, especially if you start considering errors. If you have about 0.54% of return lost in 9/6 JoB due to errors (99% return after errors), then that ~3.8% RoR goes up to about ~7.2% (higher than I first guessed). I would assume you play better than that overall Tim, but then again, I have that AT suited royal burned in my brain...:evillaugh

    I'd assume Tim plays 9/6 JOB perfectly. Including the rare exceptions.

    Im assuming Timspeed is going to play the 9/6 coin droppers at MSS. Even though play is slower, the scratch cards for the 4oaks and the points should make this an even better game. I think those machines still have the double up feature enabled as well. Good Luck on your trip there. I still have a love for the place even though I rarely go there anymore.

    No need to play coin droppers. Every machine at the bar is 9/6 JOB, with TITO. I'm not sure how many coin droppers are left. I know the Treasure Chest machines on the floor still are, but I never play on the floor. I just don't see a lot of people bringing buckets to the cage.

    Oh yea I forgot about those. I think the 10/7 DB machines in front of the bar have 9/6 JOB as well. My memory is fading quickly these days.

    Nope...MSS just doesn't really offer anything for me...
    We're picking up Sams Town, as its 7x points (and FREQUENTLY IS a multiplier). Also, ST has fun events, where MSS has none (plus the overall quality just seems better as ST, as well as a bowling alley and movie theater)

    I'm not sure what you're trying to say Joe. Could you repeat that please? ;)

    Glitch?
