MegaJacks is a Video Poker game which is a modified version of Jacks or Better. The basic changes to the Jacks or Better paytable are that a Royal Flush pays out a progressive jackpot. This can result in a House Edge either above or below the standard Jacks or Better House Edge.
MegaJacks is only available at Playtech casinos;
Some notes on the table below;
– We’ve included both the 5 coin House Edge and the House Edge when playing 1-4 coins. The House Edge for 1-4 coins are the same and as such only one figure is listed. To find the house edge/paytable for 2-4 coins just multiple the 1 coin figure by the number of coins.
|Playtech||5 coins||1-4 coins|
|Jacks or Better||5||1|
* The paytables for 2, 3 and 4 coins are just the paytable for 1 coin multiplied by the number of coins. The House Edge for 1-4 coins are all equal at 1.63%.
** The negative house edge value indicates that the player has an edge over the house when the jackpot reaches a certain point. The breakeven point for this game is a jackpot of 4880 coins or $1220.
