Variation: Jacks or Better Power Poker
The name of the game “Jacks or Better” refers to the fact that the lowest (or least valuable) standard poker hand that will payout in this game is a pair of Jacks. Jacks or Better has no wild cards and pays out a maximum of 4000 coins for a Royal flush.
The object of 4-Line Jacks or Better is to obtain a five-card poker hand that contains a winning combination. It differs from original Jacks or Better, since it has four lines of cards. The better your hand, the bigger the payout. You choose how many and which of your cards are to be replaced. You may replace your cards only once.
To play the game:
If you end up with a winning hand, you can accept the winning (press Collect), or you have the option to double it. Should you choose to double, the dealer draws an open card and you are given 4 unexposed cards to choose between.
choose a card that is lower than the dealer's, you lose your original winning.
If the cards are equal, it is a tie, and you have the option to collect your
original winnings (press Collect) or double again. If your card is higher, you
win double the amount of your original winnings. You then have the option to
collect your winnings or double even further.
To calculate the winning amount for a card combination, multiply your bet per line by the number shown in the winnings table in first column from the left.
Columns 2-5 are for reference purposes – when you bet two coins, the winning amount doubles; when you bet three coins, the winning amount triples, etc.
Jacks or Better Power Poker is different from the standard Jacks or Better video poker, as you play four identical hands of cards. At the beginning of each game the first hand is shown to you, with the other three hands remain face down.
The game then progresses like a standard video poker. There are no wild cards and pays out a maximum of 4000 coins for a Royal Flush, with five coins bet.
