Versus most games yes, this one is more difficult. And nope, no simple strategy made. For most players, it's just better to play 9/6 JoB. Any game where the flush payout is 7 for 1 or higher is more difficult. Is there is a 9/7 TDB in your area even?

I wouldn't touch anything lower than 9/7 either.



9/7 TDB has some benefits over 9/6 JoB. Sometimes variance is your friend.

There are also some casinos that have 9/7 TDB but not 9/6 Jacks (or any other 99.5+% game)

9/6 TDB (about 98.2% I think) at HorseShoe Cincinnati at $5 per credit. I got the JoB strategy down and sometimes I do want the high variance this game has. HorseShoe Cincinnati and Southern Indiana downgraded everything thing early this year. Not sure anything 99%+ exists in Ohio or Indiana.

vpFREE shows several casinos with 99%+ games (far more in Indiana than in Ohio).

If you really want to play at Horseshoe Cincinnati and want variance, I would play 9/6 DDB way before 9/6 TDB. Game is 0.8% better and the strategy is easier.

9/6 TDB is going to have a different strategy than 9/7 TDB. The 7 flush really changes things.

Wow, I don't play a lot of VP in casinos, and from what I can tell the payables tend to suck, but wow! A 1.8% edge on a $5 credit machine? Is that standard? I mean if I play Nickel credits (even penny multihand) I generally have like a .6% edge against me.

In the last part, I meant on Bovada, which is obv. better odds than a Brick and Mortar casino, but even in general I find it surprising that such a high denomination wouldn't have a lower HE.

Depends on area you live in. Some casinos just trash high limit because they just hope to get the periodic sucker to play it. Sam's Town Tunica does this for example. 97% machines at the $5 level. But they offer 9/6 JoB for quarters thru dollars. Outside of off-strip Vegas, I'm sure the bovada paytables are usually better for nickels. Most nickel units in the Midwest are in the 97% range or worse.
