Default Can someone explain how these props work?

I figured somone in this forum would know. Here is an entry out of DN's blog and I couldnt quite figure it out. What is the big boy and why is he multiplying by 4 sometimes and by 1 other times. Thanks for the help.

"At this point I was only playing props heads up, when I hit my dream flop: 5-5-5. That flop pays me out huge since I have a 5 in 5 out of my 7 props:

4-5-6 (big boy)

When you flop trips, that pays double also, so this prop was worth:

4 x $7000= $28,000
1 x $10,000= $10,000
x 2 for trips= $76,000

Now, if I was on for triples and hit this prop playing four handed, it would pay me a cool $684,000!

Unfortunately in this case, I was only on for singles and my opponent was on for doubles and had a 5 in one of his props. He owed me $76,000 but I had to pay him back $28,000. Still, a $48,000 profit.

Then, to my surprise I hit my second biggest prop when I was on for doubles. The flop came 7-7-7 and I have three 7's in my props, so that one paid:

3 x $7000= $21,000
x 2 for trips= $42,000
x 2 for doubles= $84,000

He was on for singles and has a 7 in his big boy and another 7, so this prop netted me $50,000."

he says what it is in his blog, but

the big boy pays out more than his other props. It's like his bonus prop.
