Jacks Or Better At Coral Games
Jacks Or Better is a classic video poker game which features on a number of sites. We've chosen to take a look at the Coral Poker version. You'll find it under games section on the site but you can use the same poker login. Jacks Or Better is a simple enough game to play and you can win a maximum of x4000 your wager with this particular version.
Jacks Or Better is very retro in look. The background features knights but the main game window is dominated by the pay table. You can bet 1 to 5 coins per game - up to a maximum of £2.50. Select either "Bet One" or "Bet Max" to play.
You are dealt five cards in round one and are then invited to hold any you feel would make up a winning combination. If you get a potential win on the first round then the computer may automatically hold cards for you. You are welcome to deselect these cards if you like.
If you're lucky enough to win then you're given an opportunity to gamble. You can choose to use all or half your winnings - you can of course just collect. Should you opt to gamble then a simple Hi-Lo game will determine whether you're taking home extra winnings or leaving with nothing.
We're not quite sure whether there's any strategy that can be applied to video poker. However we always hold the picture cards just to try and collect something if the first round hasn't been kind. If you do win then be cautious with the double up rounds - you can get Aces and that basically scuppers any chance of winning.
