Diamond JOB or DDB for clearing bonuses/free play?

I know this is a poker forum, I am assuming it is ok to ask a VP question.

Between JOB and DDB, which one do you prefer and why?

I prefer DDB as it has a better spread of the top heavy payouts. What do you guys think. BTW I cleared 106/125.

Video Blackjack is the best option for taking variance out of running off freeplay. While DDB has a variance of 42 and JOB has a variance of 19, VBJ has a variance of 3.

I agree with this, assuming blackjack is 3:2 blackjack payout. If it's even money or 6:5, EV sucks, and either video poker game (assuming a good pay table, like 9/6 Jacks, or 9/7 DDB) has better EV.

Also, whether to play higher or lower variance game depends on your goal. If you want to have the best chance of consistently converting most of your free play to cash, the low variance game is better. If you want to hit a big score occasionally, while frequently losing all your free play, the high variance game is better.

Unfortunately at a lot of casinos freeplay isn't accepted at VBJ (or any other electronic table game).
