    Just would like to understand the math

    I've earned about $220 point play over 2.25 days. 99 percent slots.

    What is my coin in?

    Depends on what your status level was while you earned it. Note that the 100 is the indentity points per dollar, 2.5 is the coin- in on slots per tier point, and the 1, 2, 3 in the calculations below are the multipliers earned for Velvet, Sterling/Gold, and Platinum respectively.

    If you were Sterling or Gold the whole time with 100% slots, then it's:

    $220 x 100 × 2.5 / 2 = $27,500

    If you were Platinum the whole time then it's:
    $220 x 100 × 2.5 / 3 = $18,333

    If you were a Velvet member with 0 tier to start:

    $40 x 100 x 2.5 / 1 + $180 x 100 x 2.5 / 2 = $32,500

    Thanks. I am Sterling.

    Hey I have another question for you Trig.

    I was playing STP DDB 3 handed at Cosmo and got dealt K4442 with a 4x multiplier.

    Was close to holding 4442 but ended up only holding 444. Well a 4 came as the first card on one hand which still was a nice hand, but questioning if I made the right hold?

    Thanks!!!

    Holding only the 4s is the correct hold in double double

    Yeah, never hold kickers in DDB. But hold trips with kicker on Triple Double or Triple Triple Bonus.

    Another note is that on super times pay, the multiplier does not effect strategy. Use the standard strategy for the base game.

    This is true for any game with a random multiplier or any game where the multiplier is awarded based on what you are dealt.
