75% option. Still very good odds, and imo, less rage inducing if you lost that then the higher ones with their smaller chances to fail.

3 is the option most likely to give you the greatest returns.

A 10% decrease in probability delivering a 300% return over the first option would be ridiculous to pass up.

4 and 5 would be better when they hit and hurt more when they miss.

^^^AKA, i used to apply the same basic formula to women at the club, back in my single days.

You bang enough 3s and 4s you basically banged a 15.
