need help with this question
there is a video blackjack machine with the following rules
hit on soft 17 - double 10-11 only
split aces one card each
cannot resplit
blackjack 3-2 , late surrender , 6 cards automatically wins and
2 decks
here is my question
------------ you earn points at 24 dollars = 1 point
i need to earn 25k points for a certain pormotion which gives back 7500 dollars in freeplay so i need to cyclle in 600k coin in
at 50 dollars a hand what is my risk of ruin considering my bankroll is only 2500 to accomplish this and what would be optimal bet to make to lower the risk but not take me more then 25 hours of play to complete?

Careful!! Those video blackjack machines often calculate the payoff differently. Make sure that 3:2 payoff is what you mean by a 3:2 payoff. Sometimes the machine takes your bet.. then pays off at 3:2. At a table blackjack, the dealer leaves your bet on the table and pays of at 3:2. Big difference!!!
Just figure out what is really happening ... then good luck to you.
Rember a payoff in FreePlay is not a cash payoff, so its your choice.

Really? That is a horrible payout for winning a blackjack. I am surprised that would be permitted.
