Coliseum Poker

Coliseum Poker is a Video Poker game which is a modified version of Jacks or Better. The basic changes to the Jacks or Better paytable are that a Royal Flush pays out a progressive jackpot. This can result in a House Edge either above or below the standard Jacks or Better House Edge.

Coliseum Poker is only available at GamesOS casinos;

Some notes on the table below;

- We’ve included both the 5 coin House Edge and the House Edge when playing 1-4 coins. The House Edge for 1-4 coins are the same and as such only one figure is listed. To find the house edge/paytable for 2-4 coins just multiple the 1 coin figure by the number of coins.
