Yes! (except hit these extremely rare hands: 10 vs all, hard 11 vs 7-A, and soft 15 and 16 vs A
This is confusing me. Why would I hit, foregoing any chance of the bonus, on S15 and S16 but not S12, S13 or S14 given that as stood hands they're identical but Soft 12-14 is clearly a better hittable hand?
There is no right or wrong as it's a matter of PERSPECTIVE. I too was a bit confused by the "bet $10, get $40, but yeah it's a 2x promotion!" but you clarified what you meant and that was that. Personally (not right or wrong just personal preference) I'd refer to this promotion as paying a 3-1 BONUS in addition to the hand on any 5 card hand that pushes or wins. Thus, $10 bet push = $30... $10 bet win = $40.Quote: DapperDanMan

Michael, you're wrong but I'm not going to engage you any further.
I was going to write, "hit soft 12-16 vs A," but then I realized that soft 15 is the smallest five-card soft hand (AAAAA.)
Is $10 the max bet or was that just an example?
Ouch, $25 max bet... Well, there goes that ship.Quote: DapperDanMan
$50 max bonus per hand. (You can bet more than $25 per hand if you wish, but that would be diminishing EV whilst this promo is on.)

Ouch, $25 max bet... Well, there goes that ship.
Even if you're getting 100 hands per hour, $25 max bet, 2% player edge (as suggested previously)... Let's say you played for 20 hours in the 1 weekend:
EV(20 hours) = (2000*25)*(.02) = $1,000
SD(20 hours) = $1,285... 2SD = $2,571
So with 95% certainty, assuming you get 100 hands per hour for 20 hours, you'll expect $50/hour for a total profit of $1,000 +/- $2,571. I mean, if you're a red chipper then hey this isn't too bad at all ($50/hour), but for trying to make serious money looks like a dud.
