Default Blackjack Switch vs. regular BlackJack, is it worth the extra time?

I know bet356 casino allows this, but is it really worth all the extra time messing around with this seemingly complicated chart when Im trying to clear my bonus?? Black Jack Switch strategy chart (the BIG chart in the middle of the page)
I know the house edge is only like 0.05% (which is why it is so attractive), but would my time better be invested playing normal BJ and using the simple chart while clearing the bonus faster?

I have had a lot of success with BJ switch, using a simple rule set and relying on the chart only a few times. Most times the switch is obvious. There is only a rare occasion that I am not sure what is better, like whether two 18's is better then a 19 and 17 hand.

Here is what I do:
1. If you can make a BJ, do it no matter what
2. Try to make as many 20's as possible
3. Try to make as many 11's or 10's as possible
4. If you have two bunk hands, try to make one as good as possible
5. If you have two tweener hands, refer to the chart

If you have never played it before, play it for free for about 5 minutes and see how many times you have to look at that chart. It really is not as bad as you think.

I usually play BJ Surrender over BJ Switch, just cause the software is faster. It's very rare that I would still have to use the calculator, so the only waiting time is for software, not strategy decisions. If the WR is enormous (like 100k) then I'd probably grind it out on Switch because the difference in time is probably worth the $300 or so in EV.

also you can refer to this switch calc when your not sure when to switch. after a while you will get the hang of it and wont need to use it nearly as much

but access it from the wiz site so it will be in a small window click switch button

I play Switch every chance I get. But that's only because I'm willing to accept a slightly lower hourly rate.
