JoB is really not that low volatility. It is low for video poker, but still very high.

You have 2% of your return tied up in an 800-1 payout. That is not low volatility. Games where all bets pay even money are low volatility. Casino war. Pass line in craps (no odds). Even-money roulette bets. That is low volatility.

This is true however the amounts you have to bet are much higher to earn anything.

Actually a lot of machines give you the same credits for coin-in as VP machines do.

I know a machine where you can play blackjack for $5 min, $1000 max, and get the same slot points as you would from the same coin-in at VP. And, extra money from doubles and splits count as coin-in! And the rules aren't bad, either.

The problem is that it is slow as balls and due to the way that the hand-pays work (bet amount is included) a $480 blackjack is a hand-pay, as is a $300 bet doubled down and won (or a $300 bet, split, won both). So if you are betting $300 or more it is even slower. In the end I don't think that you can earn points faster (time-wise) than $5 denom video poker (or 5c 100-play, if you prefer).

You know dam well I know that. It was obvious I was referring to table games.

1% on a table game you must make big bets to make it worth doing. A machine is a different story because of speed as you pointed out.

Do you? This isn't the one we played. It has better rules than that one (and higher maximums, too)

This thread is all about earning slot points. Obviously table games are totally different.

I was talking in general about BJ machines. Obviously is question cant be answered with the limited information he gave, some E TBL Machines don't even generate points.
