I've done a few different searches, but can't find this specific info: does anyone know how much EV you'd give up playing NSUD (99.73) strategy on a DW44/Airport (98.91) machine? I can't find a specific strategy for the latter anywhere.

I don't know how much EV would be lost using NSUD (99.73) strategy to play DW44/Airport (98.91), but the Wizard has a video poker strategy calculator: https://wizardofodds.com/games/video-poker/strategy/calculator/

Here is the link for the Wizard's strategy generator for a 98.91 DW that might be for your pay table. (Check it.)
