About Jacks or Better

RTG’s rendition of Jacks or Better is an excellent game to introduce novice players to the world of video poker. If you are just starting out, this is a good offering to teach you the basic rules of poker and give you an idea of what making a good poker hand is all about. More experienced gamers will find Jacks or Better to be an easy respite from the more convoluted card games out there.

Jacks or Better information

Jacks or Better is premised on making the best poker hand possible of up to 10 cards with the minimum winning amount being - you guessed it - jacks or better. You make your bet and are initially dealt a hand of five cards. After you decide which cards you would like to hold on to, you are dealt new cards for each you choose to discard. Winnings are paid out in accordance with the strength of your hand.

As far as the presentation goes, it is hard to expect much from a video poker game and this game certainly does not offer anything spectacular. In fact, the presentation in some of the other Jacks or Better games on our site is markedly better.

How to play Jacks or Better

The following buttons control gameplay in Jacks or Better:

  • Bet One - This button adjusts how much you are betting. You may bet between 1 and 5 credits, or $1 and $5.
  • Deal - This will deal the cards.
  • Draw - Available when you already have a hand or are picking cards in the gamble feature, this button will reveal your selected cards.
  • Bet Max - This deals you the cards and bets the maximum five credits.
  • Spin - Spin the reels.

The paytable above the cards lists how much you can receive for each hand and possible amount that you can bet. Note that you can also try to double your winnings by using the gamble feature. Pick a card higher than the one showing to double your winnings; pick the wrong card and your winnings are forfeited.

This is my favorite game from video poker selection. I feel like the graphics are really nice and clean and also I like the whole concept of the game and color scheme.

First time that I'm seeing a VPR game without double or nothing round.
That could be a good thing too if you're not willing to risk too much and colecting your funds from the initial hand but also pretty much limits the chances of a higher wins I think.
