As in every online video poker game, in Jacks or Better the Player is dealt 5 cards face up. Then, the Player decides which cards to keep or Hold and which cards to discard.
Your closing hand will establish whether you win or lose the game. You have a winning hand if you hold a pair of Jacks or Better. Playing more coins increases the payouts on winning hands.
The buttons light up whenever they can be used. For instance, if you haven't bet yet, you can't click on Deal.
Bet One: Each time you push the Bet One button, the chosen credit value amount increases by one. The amount you have chosen to bet will be shown in the Bet display area, and will light up the appropriate column in the pay table.
Deal: The Deal button is activated at the beginning of each round and when pressed, deals your opening cards. The amount showing in the Bet display is applied when Deal is pressed.
Draw: The Deal button changes to the Draw button and is activated once the opening cards have been dealt. Press the Draw button once you have established which cards to hold. If you press Draw and have not chosen any cards to hold, all your cards will be replaced.
Bet Max: this button will automatically place a 5-credit bet and deal the cards. The number of credits you have chosen to bet will be shown in the Bet area and the appropriate column in the Payout display will be lighted up.
Hold: To Hold the cards just click on the cards you wish to keep. The card will now be marked as "Held". To remove the Hold, click on the card again. The system will automatically hold cards if there is a winning combination already present for the hand according to the paytable. However, if you think you have a good chance of getting a straight, for example, you can choose different cards to be held.
Credit Value: You can increase or decrease the denomination of your credits by pressing the ^ (up) arrow or the v (down) arrow.
- Display Quality: you can change this to Low if you are experiencing slowdowns in play because of your computer's processing abilities.
- Sound FX: this turns the game sounds (like the cards snapping into place and beeps when you click on the buttons) on and off.
- Load Ambient Sound: this will turn on the sounds of a normal casino, such as people talking in the background (these sounds are very quiet compared to the other sounds).
