"You can generate strategies yourself for any game and pay table using my video poker strategy maker. To use it, for any given multiplier enter into the "prize" column for each hand: win + multiplier - 1. For example, with a 4x multiplier and a pay table win of 25, enter as the prize 4+25-1=28."

When I look at the above quote from your strategy page on single line UX I am struggling to figure out how to apply this to single line 8/5 Bonus Poker. I look at that quote and cannot reconcile how that strategy corresponds to the links you have for 8/6 JoB strategy.

12x Strategy for 8/6 JoB
Royal Flush 9,601
Straight Flush 601
Four of a Kind 301
Full House 107
Flush 81

According to your strategy on the RF you take 12+800-1=811 yet it shows 9601
Now if I take (9601-1)/12 that gets me to 800
(601-1)/12 gets me to 50

but when I get to the Full House (107-1)/12=8.833???
and flush would be (81-1)/12=6.667???

And if I follow the formula on the page I get even more lost.

Full House 12+8-1=19 (which is not 107, and if i do 19*5coins=95, still not 107)
Flush 12+5-1=16 (which is not 81, and if I do 16*5coins=80, still not 81)

It appears to me that the explanation on what formula to use needs some clarification as I cannot reconcile it with the strategy you posted on 8/6 JoB.

Anyone else see what I see or is my brain mis-firing?

Does anyone else see a discrepancy in the formula to make a strategy for ultimate x based on what Wizard has on his strategy page?

If I'm missing something please tell me.

Thank you.
