The first thing gamers must do when playing Jacks or Better, is to choose how much they wish to stake prior to playing. Five betting levels exist, and coin values vary from 0.05 up to 2.00. This means that players could wager anything from 0.25 per game, up to the maximum wager of 50.00 per game.
The objective in this video poker game is to set up the best poker hand you possibly can. Players needn’t worry, because they cannot be beaten by a dealer, because there isn’t one. Your winnings will ultimately stem from how good of a hand you hold, based on a pay table off the left of the screen.
The lowest possible hand with which to win is a pair of Jacks or Better, whilst a Two Pair, Three of a Kind or a Straight trump that. A Flush beats a Straight, and a Full House is better than a Flush. Players with a Four of a Kind will do well, only bettered by a Straight Flush, and the top hand in video poker, a Royal Flush.
