He is probably a cheap ****; any true video poker grinder is, imo. I guess he usually hits it because he has the most volume of the drawing pool? And just bonus only? Without Quick Quads or Super Times Pay, I would think that would be a too ****ty machine for him. It's still 0.83% to the casino. But grinding out volume for the promotion might be worth it...

Yep, finally played that full pay JoB STP at the Blue Chip for the first time for max credits. 99.82% long term return for JoB with the bonus bet, but down about $120 at quarters for a single line over ~2 hours.
I started off with about 50 hands straight without a multiplier (1 in 15 chance on average). My biggest win was a boat with a 4x multiplier. But the guy next to me was max betting a 10/6 DB STP machine (99.16% with perfect strategy, which he definitely did not do) and got dealt quad queens for 2500 quarters total over ten lines! I often run like this on the best paying machines.
