    5 cent Kings or Better Jokers Wild Progressive (you need to play 10 nickles for jackpot)
    pay table 1-1-2-3-4-6-20-40-100-200 with the royal at $926.94
    What is the percentage?

    It's actually worse...it's 1-1-2-3-4-5-20-40-100-200, this is traditionally the worst kings or better game found in casinos at 95.46% before the progressive.

    But a $927 progressive (it's probably that high by now) ups the return to 98.21%...meh

    Here's the strategy.

    Thanks.
    Since it is a 10 play nickle game I didn't know where to find the percentage and winpoker doesn't let me change the paytable to a 10 coin game.
    At what point does it go over 100%?

    So it is a terrible game even when it gets to $1000 for a royal, even considering the smaller 50 cent investment per hand as opposed to the normal $1.25 per hand investment on a normal .25 cent machine to get it's $1000 royal.
    Game variance 181
    Thanks Again Tringlomane
