Enjoy some good old fashioned poker fun in Jacks or Better. This type of draw poker offers payouts on all the usual poker hands. You can play a single hand and take your chance at doubling your win in the Double or Nothing Bonus Round or play multiple hands at once! Hit it big when you bet the max on a Royal Flush.

As in every draw 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. There is a special Payline in the paytable for 4 of a kind.

Jacks Or Better Rules


  • Hands are ranked based on the game's pay table
  • Cards are dealt from a single deck
  • Cards are mixed up for each hand
  • The Player has the opportunity to discard up to 5 cards.

Player's Actions


  • Bet: the Player buys credits by clicking on chips to put into the game, then decides whether to wager 1-5 coins, each increasing the payout for a winning hand.
  • Bet One : Bet One wagers one coin each time it is clicked up to a maximum of 5 coins
  • Bet Max: Max Bet wagers 5 coins and deals the cards
  • Draw Deal: deals the cards after a bet or after cards have be selected to be "held"
  • Hold: the Player clicks on the cards it wishes to keep.
  • Cash Out: click on the red Cash/Out button to stop playing and cash out your credits and winnings.
