Hey there! This question is for the rare types of folks who don't desperately want to hit the Video Poker royal flush with the optimal max bet strategy... But just want to kill some time with smaller bets at a freeplay online casino and don't mind that they are going to lose more pretend money this way. All the bet amounts will be placed for fun. What variation of video poker has the best returns with the Royal flush Jackpot is not part of the equation? - Thanks!

It depends on what you mean by "the Royal Flush Jackpot is not part of the equation."
Do you mean that a Royal Flush pays only 125, which is what it usually pays if you play 1 credit instead of 5?

Yeah as if it is one of the possible hands but yes, it pays in multiples of 125, with no jackpot for the maximum bet

Most video poker calculators allow you to enter the game type and paytable for each hand.
Many will generate a strategy for play that matches.

Single coining usually costs between 3% and 4%, due to the decrease in royal flush payout, and you are often not eligible for any progressive payouts.

Since return isn't too important, I suggest picking what's fun for you.
Best of luck!
May the cards fall in your favor.
