Jacks or Better - Play Video Poker
Jacks or Better Review & Experience
Jacks or Better by NetEnt is a video poker variation made by this highly requested software developer and it shares the features which are common for this particular type of free video poker. The name, however, doesn’t say everything about this game.
In this case, the name tells us about the minimal winning combination which should be drawn to qualify. The game is played with a standard deck which has no wild cards. The maximum bet varies depending on the number of hands you play. You can choose to play one, five, ten or twenty-five hands simultaneously. The theoretical payout is bigger in a case of 25 hands. After starting the game, you are dealt five cards of a starting hand. You can hold the cards you want to keep in every hand you play to build combos. The discarded ones are replaced for newly drawn. Each hand is drawn from a separate deck. Different winning combos will stack and make up the whole winning. The payout table is located on the left side of the screen and changes according to the bet level, but the coin value doesn’t change it.
As most of the video poker games do, this one has a bonus round which offers to gamble and doubles up your winnings. Just press the Gamble button whenever you have a winning combo. You can switch to automatically gamble in the settings. In this round, you are offered to guess the suit color of a down-faced card. You can play up to five rounds in a single time, but whenever you lose an attempt, your money will disappear. It is very hard to win even the third attempt because the RNG has no indulgences. You can play the doubling round up to your online casino limit.
Jack or Better is similar to other poker games produced by NetEnt and follow the concept of a great video poker with decent graphics, animations, and payouts. There is nothing catchy in the game, though, so we can’t call it the best. Above the average rank will be just accurate for this one.
