There are 9 types of straight flushes if you identify them by the highest rank (K thru 5) or the lowest rank (A-low thru 9). On a game such as 9-6 Jacks or Better, you get about 64 Royals per 2,598,960 hands and about 284 Straight Flushes distributed among the 9 types. So, on average, each type of straight flush is a little less than half as likely as a royal flush to occur after the draw (284 / 9 = 31.5). Certainly the values in the pay schedule have a great influence on the strategy that yields these results. And there will be different ratios with different games or different pay schedules of the same games.
