To an informed eye, a video poker play table tells the whole story about that particular machine. It tells him or her if that machine is worth playing or not. You should study a video poker machine's pay table closely before you put your money in it.
Two machines can have the same game in them - say, Joker Poker - yet their pay tables may differ and consequently, their usefulness to the player. To distinguish between the same games with different pay tables, players refer to 9/6 Jacks or Better, or 8/5, 7/5 and so on. Usually only two numbers are used and these refer to the payouts for full house and flush respectively, so a 9/6 means a machine pays 9 for 1 for a full house and 6 for 1 for a flush.
