Jacks Or Better

Get your cards in order with Jacks Or Better at The Phone Casino

Play Game

Jacks or better mixes skill with fortune. Two jacks or better and you win!

Jacks or Better Video Poker is played with a standard deck of 52 cards, with no wild cards. The cards are shuffled before each and every deal, and so they come out randomly. 

The wagering process invokes the use of the plus (+) and minus (-) controls, which will increase or decrease the size of the coins you will use in your betting. When you click "Bet One" you are betting one unit times the coin size, Clicking "Bet Max" gives you the maximum times that coin size. For example, if your coin size is 0.25, the maximum bet you'll have is 1.25. If it's 5 units, the max bet will be 25. Everything is pretty much under your control. 


When it comes to beginning play, you click "Deal" to get the cards. Now here's where you can go one of two ways. You can choose to do the process automatically, which comes through AutoPlay, which will make your decisions for you according to a mathematically-sound strategy and stop whenever you want (e.g., after jackpot is own, after exceeding pre-set win figures, after any win, etc.). Or, you can just play all the hands yourself manually. 

After a winning hand, the player can seek to double that win by engaging in a "showdown" with the dealer. There are five cards dealt onto the screen - four of them face-down, which represents a choice for the player, and one card face-up, which is the dealer's card. The player picks one of the face-down cards and if it is of a higher value than the dealer's face-down card, the win is doubled. The player can elect to double again, or quit and collect. 

This game is exclusive to Small Screen Casinos and is certified by the UK Gambling Commission as having been independently tested and up to the required standards for players in the UK.
