Hi everyone, I am a New Jersey native and I have recently gotten into the video poker scene thanks to the wizard's advice and strategy guides for the wide variety of vp games that are available. Unfortunately, Atlantic City offers very few full pay machines but I believe that I may have found one at the Tropicana but cannot find any info on the game on this site. The game features a standard 52-card deck with five wild jokers added in for a total of 57 cards. The paytable is as follows:

Five Jokers - 800
Natural Royal Flush - 800
Four Jokers - 50
Wild Royal Flush - 20
5 of a Kind - 15
Straight Flush - 9
Four of a Kind - 4
Full House - 3
Flush - 2
Straight - 2
3 of a Kind - 1

In addition to this standard paytable that I found, the machine also featured a progressive jackpot for the Five Jokers which was at $2800 for the $.25 machine that I was playing, making the Five Jokers pay 2,240 to 1 for the max bet. Does anyone have any information about this game and this paytable in particular along with a basic strategy on how to play this game? I used a modified deuces wild-type of strategy along with some quick calculations of odds for marginal hands, but if someone has some more info I would really appreciate it. I'm sure I made a few mistakes along the way but I really enjoyed playing it and even though I eventually ended up losing around $50, it took me nearly 3 hours to do so. Thanks for the great site as always Wiz, ,always look forward to reading your input.

Yes, that's a full pay machine you found. It normally returns 99.59% but if five jokers return 2240 coins instead of 800, then the game return is 100.43%.

Easy to play perfect strategy, very enjoyable game.

Bah, I was at home spending "family time" today or else I certainly would have gone to take advantage of this promo. Oh well, thanks for the insight and the website for the proper strategy. After going there I see that I did in fact make the right plays for nearly all of the hands that i had in question, so that's certainly a plus. Looking forward to returning soon to try again. Kudos to the trop for offering this at such a low denom.
