Jacks or Better Power Poker: totally switched on
Based on classic video poker, Jacks or Better Power Poker is a variation for players who want a little extra ‘oomph’ in their games. The standard game requires a good level of skill, mixed with a little luck, to take advantage of one of the best payout percentages in the casino. But play Jacks or Better Power Poker and you’ll find everything just got a little bigger!
The basics are simple: Jacks or Better pays out on a pair of Jacks or any hand above it in the pay table. The top hand is a Royal Flush – which pays out 4000 coins on a maximum bet – and there other ways to win with standard poker hands – Straight, Three of a Kind, a Full House etc. However, this variation switches on the power by allowing you to simultaneously play a cool quartet of hands – and quadruple your winnings.
If you like Jacks or Better but you’re ready for extra excitement, extra fun and extra chances to win, this is the game for you. And with the Double Your Money feature in play on each game, Jacks or Better Power Poker is certainly not a game that likes to hold back!
How to play Jacks or Better Power Poker: strategy and rules
Jacks or Better Power Poker is played against the machine. The rules for each game are the same…all you have to do is apply them to four games at once.
The player is dealt five cards from a standard 52-card deck. Once dealt, the player can choose to hold certain cards whilst discarding others. Discarded cards are replaced by new ones.
Initially, the computer automatically holds the cards that it thinks have the best chance to win. But if you don’t agree with the choice, it can be easily changed.
After all cards have been dealt, the player must form a hand of ‘a pair of Jacks’ or better or the hand is lost.
Players can bet with between one and five coins – the more coins you bet with, the higher the payout.
If you get a winning hand, you can then play the ‘Double Your Money’ feature.
