Jacks or Better is a classic video poker game which is very easy to play. The objective of the game is to make a pair of Jacks or higher out of a five card poker draw: simply, to win by making “Jacks or Better.”
Thanks to developments in software made by International Game Technology (IGT), an online casino games and systems industry leader, this classic, straightforward and enjoyable game can now be played on smartphones and other mobile touch-screen operated devices. These include the Apple iPad and iPhone and also many Android devices.
IGT’s software allows player’s to bet as little as £0.25 and as much as £50 on each hand. Upon winning a hand, players are given the opportunity to play the new “Double-Up Gamble” feature. Here, the player may select “collect,” “black” or “red.” Making the correct selection will both double player’s winnings and offer another opportunity to play.
IGT are extremely pleased with their product. The company’s Vice-President, Alex Kelly, believes the Jacks or Better smartphone product will “add significant value” to the “mobile portfolio” of any online casino operator.
Paddy Power Casino is one online operator who has added Jacks or Better to their stable of games. At Paddy Power currently, a Royal Flush in Jacks or Better pays out £4,000, while any two pairs equals double pay.
