    9/6 means the single unit pay for full house/flush, or 45/30 for max bet. 9/6 is full pay for Jacks of Better

    Look at the first column in the pay table - it tells you how many coins you get paid if you hit that hand with one coin bet.

    The two numbers that you are looking for are the full house payout and the flush payout.

    The pay table is represented by full house payout for one coin / flush payout for one coin

    And to figure out the percent return, you can go to one of the various video poker sites to translate the pay table into the expected return, or use an app like "pay tables" from the iTunes store -

    The paytable app on this page says its only for ipad but it works fine on iPhone too (the simulator on this link only works on iPad though). I take it along when assessing machines to play.

    Another Apple app which is a good reference source in this regard is The Ultimate Video Poker Pocket Book app - which has expected return and strategy for a lot of games. Another great thing to carry around as you play -

    Android has "Jacks or Better - Video Poker Trainer"

    It will tell you when you made a strategy mistake and you can also look at all the EVs for different holds.

    They also have one for Dueces Wild


    Pretty good way to kill time
