Mike answered today’s question of the day on Anthony’s site: https://www.lasvegasadvisor.com/question-of-the-day/

It was about how the Pai Gow progressive is so high that mathematically speaking it’s a positive expectation.

I put it in perspective as the first respondent by comparing it to the current Powerball.

Thank you for posting this. I haven't been to that site in probably five years. My wife used to be the main moderator for their forum when it was popular 15 years ago or so.

I read your comment. Even if one doesn't consider taxes, the Powerball/Mega Millions is never a good bet, due to the annuity and jackpot sharing. It's not even close. I show the best time to play is at a jackpot of about 600 million and then the expected return is only about 53%. Again, that's before taxes.
