Ah, by the way. Assuming that these cards are dealt in a fair, random manner, and considering that:

1. To get a complete hand you need 75 points.

2. The probability of getting less than a pair and winning nothing is around 50,12%.

3. The probability of getting a pair and winning $5 is around 42,27%.

4. The probability of getting two pair and winning $10 is around 4,75%.

5. The probability of getting 3 of a kind and winning $25 is around 2,11%.

6. The probability of getting a straight and winning $50 is around 0,39%.

7. The probability of getting a flush and winning $100 is around 0,20%.

8. The probability of getting a full house and winning $250 is around 0,144%.

9. The probability of getting quads and winning $1000 is around 0,024%.

10. The probability of getting a (non-royal) straight flush and winning $5000 is around 0,00138%

11. The probability of getting a royal flush and winning a million dollars is around 0,000154%.

The average extra value of 75 points during this promotion is calculated as follows:

EV(75 points) **=** 0 x 0,5012 + 5 x 0,4227 + 10 x 0,0475 + 25 x 0,0211 + 50 x 0,0039 + 100 x 0,002 + 250 x 0,00144 + 1000 x 0,00024 + 5000 x 0,0000138 + 1000000 x 0,00000154 **=** 0 + 2,1135 + 0,475 + 0,5275 + 0,195 + 0,2 + 0,36 + 0,24 + 0,069 + 1,54 **=** __5,72 dollars__.

It's 5 dollars and 72 cents of expected value for each five card hand. That makes an average of 1 dollar and 14 cents of value for each individual card you get, every 15 Points. It's slightly better than the $100 buy-a-bonus, and it doesn't even replace it, it's added value in the form of direct cash. Of course, the "texture" of already revealed cards in an incomplete hand can change that individual card value dramatically.

Grind hard if you can, guys. It's a very generous promotion and you can win big.
