What you Should Know About Jacks/Better

Jacks/Better is a very easy video Poker game. The game has been in existence for a long time. You will start with five cards that you will be dealt from a slandered deck of 52 cards. You will then chose a card to keep and those to discard in a bid to improve your hand.

There are a few strategies that you can apply for you to have a better chance of winning the game.

Here are some of the strategies that you can apply.

The 9/6 Pay Table

The pay table influences the house edge in Jacks or Better. If the house edge is high, you will also lose faster.  The 9/6 pay table is the best table available, it pays nine for a full house and six for a flush in the single column.

Payouts you Should Look For

  • Royal flush 4 00 coins
  • Straight flush 250 coins
  • Four of a kind 125 coins
  • Full house 45 coins
  • Flush 30 coins
  • Straight 20 coins
  • Three of a kind 15 coins
  • Two pairs 10 coins
  • Jacks or better 5 coins

You will have a chance of winning if you have good strategy that can reduce the house edge to as low as 5%.

Maximum Points

You will not win extra coins for a royal flush. A 9/6 pay table is the best, however if you do not wager on five coins you will not get bonus for a royal flush. This makes the house edge go up. The challenge is for you to get a 9/6 pay-table because many casinos do not offer it.

Online or Live Play

There is no difference in land based casino Jacks or Better and Online Jacks and Better. A 9/6 pay table is easier to find online than in land based casinos.

You can play more than one hand in online casinos than in land based casinos.

Jacks/Better Tournaments

Jacks or Better tournaments are not that popular. You need to play as fast as you can in tournaments  until you hit a jackpot.
