"In case you were wondering, following is the value of both multiplier chains, according to my calculations.
This is what you should add to the win in the pay table to create a strategy for the game.
In other words, this is the value of the two different multiplier chains in this game as measured by the amount bet per hand, not counting the additional amount bet to invoke the feature.

The 2-3-4 multiplier chain is worth 6.137727.
The 2-3-4-7-12 multiplier chain is worth 23.113457."

im trying to come up with a Bonus Streak strategy for 10play ddb by trying to use his method.
but I don't understand how to use the 6.13 and 23.11 values in the VP strategy maker?

I asked the Wiz to explain this and he said he's a bit busy for at least a week and suggested that I create a thread here.

Any ideas on how he used the multiplier chain values in his strategy maker?

I don't think you can apply those numbers to DDB; I think they are calculated based on the payouts in Jacks or Better - and possibly just 8/6 Jacks or Better at that.

For Jacks or Better, it appears that you would add 6.137727 to the payouts of the hands that give you a 2-3-4 streak (three of a kind, straight, flush), and 23.113457 to the payouts of the hands that give you a 2-3-4-7-12 streak (full house or better).

thx for the explanation.

sigh.. if I need new values for ddb, then I need to do matrix multiplication.
