9/6

What is a ‘9/6’?

Anyone who has a soft spot for the game of poker will most likely have played on a 9/6 video poker machine. These machines, known as ‘full-pay’ machines, offer players better odds than the more common video poker machines, which are referred to as ‘short-pay’ machines.

‘9/6’ Explained

Video poker games have become increasingly popular over the years, and none more so than 9/6 machines, which gamblers prefer due to the fact that they offer better odds than the more common machines.

If a player is playing on a 9/6 video poker machine, then they will receive 9 times their bet if they have a full house, and 6 times their bet if they have a flush. For example, if a player were to bet 5 credits, or coins (the maximum bet on a video poker machine), then a full house would earn them 45 credits, in addition to their 5 credit bet back; they would win this amount because the machine offered them odds of 9/1. Likewise, if they were to place the same bet and a flush came in, then they would earn 25 credits, and their bet back (odds of 6/1).

In addition to the 9/6 video poker machines, there are also machines which offer lower odds for the same hands. Known as ‘short-pay’ games, these are a lot more common than 9/6 machines, and instead of paying 9 credits for a full house and 6 credits for a flush, these machines will pay 8 credits per 1 credit bet for a full house and 5 credits per 1 credit bet for a flush.

Because they offer gamblers better odds, 9/6 video poker machines cannot really be found online, and those wanting to be paid more for their winning hands often have to go to casinos.
