    For purposes of rating, is it better to play one hand with $X average bet or play two hands with $.5X average bet or is there no difference to the system? For example am I more valuable to the casino if I play $200 per hand or play two hands $100 each?
     
    Adding a couple days to the trip.

    I have been told there is no difference.

    It's the same and I know this as a fact at CET properties. It's possible other casinos are different, but if you think about it, it makes sense. They have the same edge whether you're playing one hand at $600 or 6 hands at $100.

    Same edge but a much lower variance. From a risk perspective they may even prefer that.

    Casino does prefer lower variance, but it isn't built into their TC / ADT calculations, which is merely a function of house edge (again, at least at CET).
