Jacks or Better is one of the most popular variations of video poker from Microgaming. The game is played with 5 cards at a time from a deck of 52 cards. The game does not include any bonus features such as wilds or jokers. Players can win up 4,000 coins when a natural royal flush appears while maximum bet is activated.
The objective of the game is to reach combinations of jacks or better. This means any combinations of 2 face cards or aces will provide the lowest winning opportunities starting from 5 coins at max bet. Any card values can be used to achieve higher winnings. This means three 2 cards will trigger the 3 of a kind win or 2 pairs of 3’s and 5’s for example, will trigger the 2 pair win. In addition, players can also use a double up bonus feature. This is available with every winning hand where a hi-lo game is played to double the winnings when the right choice is selected or lose all winnings when the wrong option has been chosen.
Players can change betting amounts between rounds that will provide values ranging from $0.01 to $5.00 per coin. With the additional 1 to 5 coin bet, players will be able to reach bet totals up to $25.00 per round. Playing a higher bet will result in bigger winnings as all rewards are granted in coin after being multiplied by the number of coins wagered. These values are displayed above the playing cards for each possible combination along with the winning for the number of coins wagered. Before winnings are added to the remaining account balance, it will be multiplied by the coin value, which means the jackpot can payout up to $20,000.00.
How Jacks or Better Works
This form of video poker is very easy to play. Players simply need to choose a bet and press the deal button displayed to the right of the navigation panel. 5 new cards will show on the screen that will be used to create combinations. The cards not matched to others or likely to be unrewarding will be highlighted and replaced when players press draw. Additional cards can be selected, or players can choose to keep one of the highlighted cards that have automatically been selected.
Once the draw button is pressed, those cards will be replaced by others from the same pack. This opens the opportunity to activate bigger combinations and achieve higher payouts for combinations. This form of video poker has become popular for its easy betting options and massive rewards when wagering high. A huge return to player rate of 99% is available for the game, making it one of the most fun and rewarding game.
