Jacks or Better - Videopoker

Game Features

  • Hi-Lo Bonus
  • Double Bonus
  • Win up to 4,000 credits
  • Variable card speed




Basic Play

First you must choose how many credits to play. When you click the Deal button, your hand is revealed. You then choose the cards to hold or discard. By default the system has an Autohold feature which suggests the cards to hold. This strategy is based on best play practises for the video poker variant being played.

Once you have selected the cards to hold, click Draw and the remaining cards are replaced. A standard 52-card deck without jokers or wild cards is used in Jacks or Better Video Poker.

You win if your cards form a winning poker hand (see below). The objective is to complete the game with the strongest hand. The payout depends on the poker hand you are holding. When you win, you can choose to increase your winnings by playing either the Double Bonus or the Hi-Lo Bonus.

How To Play

  • Select your credit denomination.
    Select how much you want each credit to be worth using the left and right arrows.
  • Make a bet of between 1 and 5 credits.
    Set your bet amount by clicking the Bet One or Bet Max button. Each time you press the Bet One button, the credit value amount selected increases by one. If you reach 5 credits and press the Bet One button again, your credits bet number will reset to 1. Bet Max places a 5-credit bet on the hand and deals the cards. Your bet amount will be shown in the Bet display.

    If you just click Deal, a 1-credit bet is made by default. On subsequent rounds, the amount of your last bet will be the used as a default bet, but you can change it at the start of each new hand.

    The number of credits bet will affect the pay table shown above the cards. The win amounts shown are in credits, and increase when you play more credits per hand. The amount the payouts are worth depends on the amount you selected each credit to be worth.
  • Click Deal.
    The cards will be turned over.
  • Select which cards to hold.
    The system will automatically hold cards as a suggestion. You can always change the cards being held. The autohold is based on an optimum play strategy for the variant of video poker being played.

    You can also hold all 5 cards and then click Draw to keep all original cards as dealt.
  • Click Draw again.
    All cards not held will be replaced with new cards. You win if your hand holds a winning combination shown on the paytable.
  • Hi-Lo, Double and Collect
    When you win, you've got the chance to collect your winnings or to try and multiply them by playing one of our exceptional bonus games: Hi-Lo or Double. In addition, both of these bonus games offer a side bet which pays extra when you guess the right result more than once.
  • Hi-Lo
    When you click on the Hi-Lo button after winning during regular play, the Hi-Lo bonus game will open.

    The game is divided into 4 levels. Hi-Lo offers the chance to increase your winnings after each card, and after each level.
    • The Game
      The first card in the Spades level (each level is assigned it's own suit) will be displayed. At this point you must choose whether the next card will be higher or lower than the card displayed. The odds displayed for winning either bet are based on the probabilities of getting a card which is higher or lower than the card displayed. For example, if the card displayed is a 3, the probability of getting a higher card is quite high and so the payout is relatively low. The probability of getting a lower card is very low, so the payout is much higher.

      In Hi-Lo, 2 is the lowest card and Ace is the highest. When you see either of these two cards, you will only be able to select the appropriate choice (High for a 2, Low for an ace). In this case you don't win for the individual card but you can consider it a "freebee" to get you closer to finishing the level when playing the extra bonus bet.

      After each correct choice that you make, you have the option of collecting your current win or continuing to guess the result of the next card. If your choice is not correct, you lose any winnings you had made up to that point in the Hi-Lo game and the original winnings you made on the hand(s) during regular play.

    • Extra Bonus
      Before starting your game of Hi-Lo, you will decide if you want to activate the Extra Bonus by betting the value of 1 coin.

      The Extra Bonus pays for each complete level that you finish, according to the paytable. This payout is in addition to wins accumulated for correctly guessing high or low for each card.

    • How to Activate the Extra Bonus
      Before clicking Start to begin the game of Hi-Lo, simply click the "Hi-Lo Extra Bonus" button shown below. You can always de-activate the extra bonus before you start the game if you accidentally activate the bonus by mistake. Playing the Extra Bonus costs the value of 1 coin, which depends on the value you selected during regular play.

    • Double
      When you click on the Double button after winning during regular play, the Double bonus game will open.

      With the Double bonus game, 5 cards are randomly picked from a full deck. The first card is revealed and you must choose one of the four remaining cards, with the objective of finding a higher card than the one that was first revealed.


The Game

  • The game starts with a display of 5 cards face down. Once you click the Start button, the first card will be shown.
  • You will choose one of the four remaining cards, with the objective of finding a higher card than the one that was first revealed. If you are successful, you will double your previous winnings. If not, you lose any winnings you had made up to that point in the Double game and the original winnings you made on the hand(s) during regular play.
  • You can continue playing to double your winnings up to 10 times.


Double Fever Bonus

  • Before starting to play the Double bonus game, you will decide if you want to play the Double Fever Bonus. This bonus costs the value of 1 coin, and pays for 2 or more consecutive correct guesses.
  • When you guess correctly 2 or more times in a row, you will be paid out according to the paytable. If you continue and guess incorrectly, you will lose any Double Fever Bonus payout that you had accumulated.


How to Activate the Double Fever Bonus

Before clicking Start to begin the Double game, simply click the "Double Fever" button shown below.
