This question is for the Wizard of Vegas/Odds:

On the Wizard of Odd's article on SPLIT POKER, which you last updated on December 2, 2015, you indicated that you had inquired of IGT to obtain the returns for this game. Did you ever receive that information? If so, I would love to see what the returns are.

Interestingly, where I have found the game (in an Indian casino), they sometimes have games with "auto-hold," so I asked if they could activate the "Auto-Hold" on the Split Poker Game. They said, "Sure." A technician then went into the game and it showed that the Auto-Hold had been activated, but it didn't work (even though it indicated it was on). I would love to have had this feature enabled, since the strategy is so difficult. I wonder if they intentionally didn't activate it because they don't players to get the highest return. Just curious.

One misconception that you have is that the Auto-Hold gives the highest return. In general, the Auto-Hold feature is not optimum on most games.
At my age, a "Life In Prison" sentence is not much of a deterrent.
