Welcome to play.

Progressive is a side bet, thus no need to have a Nevada trial. It's an approved bet, a real deal; being trialed only by the market. No distributor involved so far.

Quote:teliotI get 1-in-957609 (note. 6-of-a-Kind can only occur with 0's, 2's, 5's, 6's and 7's). At a game pace of 40 rounds per hour, that's 23940 hours. With 2 linked tables open, that's about 11970 hours or once every 1.37 years. That is not going to be an attractive progressive, IMO.

That's a really interesting observation I didn't pick up at first, that about 1/3 of the hands won't qualify to start with. I really appreciate you doing the calculation.

Is the progressive going to depend on multiple tables/properties to be attractive, then? What's the estimated/projected hit rate for any pay? 50:1 for the lowest is a nice amount. So 1 black chip at.a minimum.

Correction, sorry. $50 min pay, not 50:1

What's the expected jackpot at 11970 hour? May be worth waiting.Quote:teliotI get 1-in-957609 (note. 6-of-a-Kind can only occur with 0's, 2's, 5's, 6's and 7's).

Would need to know the seed and increment to compute the point at which it becomes +EV.Quote:UCivanWhat's the expected jackpot at 11970 hour? May be worth waiting.

We could assume anything we like. I'll just assume you are joking and go about my business.Quote:UCivanThe meter showed $2,000 on Wednesday. The vendor may not want to share the increment. Could we assume a contribution of 25%, 35% or 45% (or any number) respectively.
