    TDB can be interchanged with DSTP and Ultimate X :)

    I think they're different. If you use Twitter, this meme has been going around for a couple weeks, with different labels of course.

    Well, it finally happened... Since my bankroll has been living paycheck to paycheck for the last few months, my money management strategy has been to play JOB (or JOB-S3P) for the first day or two of each trip and only play TDB (or SDDB-S3P) if I get up big or on the last day before I leave. I'm a degenerate, but even I'm not driving 3-4 hours each way to potentially get an hour of play. With that as background... my first ever dealt Aces with a 2, 3, 4 kicker:
    IMG_20170915_195514.jpg IMG_20170915_195517.jpg

    It was not as upsetting as I imagined it would be (only a slight sense of disappointment), but obviously I immediately switched over to SDDB-S3P and gave it all back with this being the best hit:
    IMG_20170915_201929.jpg

    The entire $5000 only lasted 40 minutes on SDDB-S3P, which just proves that I was right about my bankroll management strategy, so at least I got that going for me...

    Hey @tringlomane - Do you know if the wizard of odds strategy maker works for Triple Triple Bonus? I found this version at Atlantis in Reno last weekend. The return analyzer puts it at 98.76%, so not ideal, but I'm sure I'll give it some more play next time. I assume the strategy is almost the same as TDB; obviously you'd always choose an A kicker with small trips if given a choice, but if dealt 3332, any chance you should drop the 2 now? Edit: Would you hold 33A now too? What about A3s?
    IMG_20170917_101532.jpg

    For anyone else that plays in Reno, this machine also has full pay versions of standard games (9/6 JOB, 8/5 Bonus, 9/6 DDB, etc.) that all pay 275 for straight flushes instead of 250. This only juices the return by a fraction of a percent (and unfortunately TDB is only 9/6), but might as well take it if you play those games anyway. It's also in the non-smoking section (a minor plus to me) and has a comfortable ergonomic design with brand new buttons and a near instantaneous credit counter, so you can play extremely fast (a major plus to me).

    I played in Atlantis for about 8 hours this Saturday. Feel like I tried every VP machine EXCEPT this one. Where is this one at? Near that area where I met you playing SDDB3P or further down towards gift shop past the coffee stand?

    Yeah, it's down by the gift shop across the aisle from the coffee stand; there's a small non-smoking slot/VP area. You can't miss it, it looks and is shaped totally different from the IGT machines.

    Then I would imagine they have that machine flagged, if you play it consistently on a card, you will probably get no-mailed.

    Maybe, but I don't see why, none of these are close to being positive and they have tons of higher return games (NSUD, 9/7 TDB, etc.) at higher denoms that you could run more coin through if that was your goal. I'm just a degen who wants to be paid 4000 credits for making 2222A (and hopefully still get my monthly free play).

    First dealt AWAK on JoB-S3P. Damn. Still 500 credits a hand I guess.
    Unfortunately not, but the payout changes possibly only influence those hands you have considered. So if you want to make a strategy, basically you can use the Wizard Strategy maker and adjust the the payouts like this to get most of the strategy.

    https://wizardofodds.com/games/vide...8-d-50-d-80-d-160-d-533.333-d-800-d-55-d-800/

    I used 533.333 for quad 2-4s w/kicker because that would be avg payout.

    Note: This says to hold 34 suited. Do NOT hold this since that quad will only pay 400, not 533.333

    But this doesn't consider whether it's correct to hold the Ace or not. Also note this strategy doesn't want you to hold inside straights with no high cards since straights are only 3 for 1.

    Of all the scenarios you brought up, the only one that matters is a low pair plus an Ace. You are supposed to hold 22A, 33A, and 44A, unless you have 3 to a royal or 4 to flush or better. If the flush is 5 for 1, then 22A, 33A, 44A is also better than a 4 flush. It's a pretty big strategy change though. Worth 0.37% if I didn't eff up the math.

    Also hold kickers on trips/quads still, pick Ace over another kicker if applicable.

    Thanks as always tring. I'll take a closer look at this when I have some more time. I've been playing around with the hand analyzer and it's not matching up with the strategy maker (even taking the exceptions into account)... I'm sure it's user error though, will try to figure out after work. Guess it doesn't really matter at the end of the day, at 98.76%, I won't be able to play that much anyway, hopefully just long enough to hit a couple 4000 low quads.

    Hopefully! I briefly tried 9/6 (99.75%) at Majestic Star in Indiana with @Wanker751 and it hoovered up a $20 in a few minutes. Lol

    What hands were you trying to test? 22A, 33A, 44A was about 1.13 betting units. Since a quad must be 800 there.
