I use 100 play VP. It works best for me.



This is what I used to do. One cent per line, 100 play, $1 per bet.

But the pay tables are reduced even with 5 coins and higher denominations. Bonus was at 6/5. TDB was at 8/5. Jacks wasn't even offered.

100 play VP is good if the pay tables are decent, but I rarely see any machine worth playing.

I donít know if any of those goofy little stand up Roulette machines are there, or will even take FP if they are, but you can basically fix your actual return within about a dollar range.

The lower limit BJ machines I've been seeing lately are all 6/5 with limited options like double down.
100 play VP is the best I've found lately to cut down on the variance and get the most back.

The value of using video blackjack is the wager is returned to you.

So wager $5 and push, you just turned $5 fp into cash

I never thought of it that way. Is that enough of an advantage to make it preferable over 100 play.
I'm not a math wiz.

I'm not a math wiz either but let's examine when you win.

Jack or better:. Wager $5, get pair of Jack's, win $5 and handed back $5.

VBJ: wager $5 and beat dealer, win $5 and get handed back $10($5 win plus $5 original wager)

Personally I prefer the VBJ

.

I would say it's 9/6 Jacks but because I've hit AAAA too many times on Jacks my game of choice is 8/5 Bonus.

And yet you probably didn't notice all the flushes and full houses you got along the way.

What's the difference between that and getting something like a pair of Jacks on JoB?

I will go with $45 Freeplay since Alan says that's what he has and let's assume one hand even though he probably intends to stretch it out.

Jacks or better
$45 freeplay, get pair of jacks, have $45 to cash out.

VBJ
$45 Freeplay, beat dealer, have $90 to cash out.

Which would you prefer?
