Payout:

Pair of Queen Hearts - 100 to 1

Matched 20 (suits and cards match)- 25 to 1

Suited 20 - 10 to 1

Any other 20 - 3 to 1

Any Queen of Hearts - 2 to 1

Any Queen - 1 to 1

My calculations are as follows:

Hand | Probability | Payout | EV |
---|---|---|---|

Pair Qh | .000309 | 100 | .0309 |

Matched 20 | .004638 | 25 | .11595 |

Suited 20 | .020777 | 10 | .20777 |

Any other 20 | .080139 | 3 | .24031 |

Any Qh | .026713 | 2 | .053426 |

Any Q | .080139 | 1 | .080139 |

Loss | .787285 | -1 | -.787285 |

Total EV | -.05879 |

Can anybody help with this or run a sim? Thanks!

I see that it's dealt from 6 decks

I get a house edge of 5.868%, which is very close to your 5.879%. This is very low compared to other Lucky Ladies pay tables.

Below are my numbers of ways for 6 decks.

Hand | Payout | Ways |
---|---|---|

Pair Qh | 100 | 15 |

Matched 20 | 25 | 225 |

Suited 20 | 10 | 1008 |

Any other 20 | 3 | 3888 |

Any Qh | 2 | 1296 |

Any Q | 1 | 3888 |

Loss | -1 | 38196 |

Total | 48516 |

Interesting to note that the Wizard's table D - 6 decks on his LL page may be incorrect for "Any other 20". That's what was driving me nuts...but I think you confirmed that I was on the right track.

Our differences are close enough for me, but may be due to rounding errors?

Not sure why people are saying not to play.... it seems like a great game to me.

I get the same as ChesterDog. Wizard has a math error on his any 20.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I just updated my Lucky Ladies page, hopefully correctly.
