Jacks or Better: Guidelines to Rules and Paytable

 

  • You should place a bet first (click on the paytable to select 1-5 coins to bet);

  • Press “Deal” button and receive a hand of 5 cards;

  • Decide whether to collect a win, double it or double and a half it. If you choose anything but collect a win, you will have to pick one card out of four. If it is higher than the dealer’s card, you will multiply your win;

  • You can hold zero, all or any of the cards after you see your hand. This feature helps to get more winning combinations.

 

You win depends on the winning combination that you receive. The stronger the hand is, the higher payout you can earn. The Jacks or Better paytable looks like this (we include only the name of the winning combination, starting with the strongest one, as the credit win can differ from game to game):

  • Royal Flush;

  • Straight Flush;

  • Four of a Kind;

  • Full House;

  • Flush;

  • Straight;

  • Three of a Kind;

  • Two Pairs;

  • Jacks or Better.

 

Basic Strategy Tips

 

We will not give you confusing and hard to remember charts, but we will offer you useful strategy tips, recommended by many experts. First, you should always hold cards that create a winning combination. The only exception is four cards to a royal flush, because it offers very high payouts so that it is worth losing a guaranteed winning combination. Secondly, four cards to flush is much better than a pair, but a pair is better than four cards to straight. Finally, it is always better to place a maximum bet.

 

KeyToCasino’s Opinion

 

Jacks or Better games are on the list of the most popular video poker machines. This game does not have any jokers or kickers, but it gives payouts for only a pair of cards (higher than Jacks) and it offers to double and a half, or double wins. Video poker types with a similar concept also appeal to players, and these are Double Bonus Poker and Tens or Better variations.
