The object of Megajacks is to obtain a five-card poker hand that contains a winning combination. The better your hand, the bigger the payout (see the winnings table on the machine). You choose how many and which of your cards are to be replaced. You may replace your cards only once.

Progressive jackpot:

A certain percentage of every bet you make goes into the progressive jackpot pool. The current size of the jackpot pool is displayed on the red scroll bar on top of the machine. You win the jackpot, if you get a Royal Flush while playing for Max Bet.

To play the game:

  • Click Bet One or Bet Max to select the amount you wish to wager. Each click on the Bet One button increases your bet by 25¢. Pressing Bet Max increases your bet to the maximum amount possible – that is 5 x 25¢ – and deals the cards automatically. You can also click the appropriate column on the winnings table to specify your bet size.
  • Click Deal (if you did not press Bet Max).
  • Choose which cards you wish to keep by pressing the Hold button underneath the card, or by clicking on the card itself.
  • Click Deal to replace the cards that you did not choose to hold.
  • If you do not obtain a winning combination, the round is over and you can start over. If you do, see the next section.



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. If you 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, your win amount is doubled. You then have the option to collect your winnings or double even further.

You can also choose to Half Double, which means you only double for a half of your winning amount. You cannot double, if your winning amount exceeds $2000.

Winnings Table

To calculate the winning amount for a card combination, multiply your bet 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.


Poker Pursuit

Poker Pursuit is a game where you seek to maximize your winnings by wagering between one and three coins on a hand of five cards.

To start, you will be dealt three cards. You must then decide whether or not to wager another coin, or merely call for another card without increasing your bet.

The higher your wager, the higher the payout you stand to win. The object of the game is to pursue the largest winnings while keeping your losses to a minimum.

Poker Pursuit



Pick 'Em Poker

Pick'Em Poker is a different kind of video poker game. This game deals out two single cards starting from the left and then 2 sets of cards each containing 3 cards.

You must choose between these two sets of 3 cards for the set that you feel gives you the best hand based on the top card of the set. However, there is no way to determine what the other 2 cards are underneath the top card until after the choice has been made.

Once you choose the set, the other cards beneath are revealed making a poker hand, and the other 3 card set is discarded.

Please see the pay table on this machine for additional information.


A gradually, constantly accumulating pot of money that can be won if you play for five coins and your hand contains four jacks and the SupaJax card.
