Hope someone can give me some info on Jacks or Better.
I'm pretty much a newbie to that game, but having played a bit I can see that the variance is very high (as all the guides etc warn you). However, the house edge at, for example, Beating Bonuses, seems to be approx 0.5%, which makes it seem quite attactive.
So my question relates to the payout relating to a Royal Flush:
The 0.5% house edge must include that payout, which seems to be 800 x bet (if using five coins).
It must be very rare indeed to get a Royal Flush, otherwise the payout wouldn't be so good.
So do people actually get Royal Flushes from time to time, or is it one of those things, like a slots Jackpot, that other people get, but never you?
And does anyone know (or is clever enough to calculate) the estimated house edge without the Royal Flush payout? I figure that would be a helpful thing to know when working out whether a particular offer is worth the risk to me.
Thanks for any help. Much appreciated!
