Progressives

Many games in Macau, not just video poker, are progressive. The games listed above at the Wynn and Sands were progressive. As a rough guide, here is how much to add to the return according to the progressive amount, for five-coin games. By "coin" I mean the denomination. I know that the machines don't take literal coins any longer, but the term is still used from when they did.

Royal flush for 52-card games: For every 1000 coins in the meter above 4000 add 0.50% to the return.
Natural Royal flush for 53-card games: For every 1000 bet units in the meter above 4000 add 0.38% to the return.
Sequential Royal flush (one direction) for 52-card games: For every 10,000 coins (bet units) in the meter above 4000 add 0.05% to the return.
