The video poker Jacks or Better is available in many online casinos that offer gambling games of this genre. Casinos running on the platform from SoftSwiss also have this model. It is traditionally called Jacks or Better Poker, but it has quite unusual design in the form of the landscape with a medieval castle.


General description

This version of Jacks or Better has classic rules. The cards are dealt from a standard 52-card deck. There are no jokers. All the cards are shuffled before each hand.
The goal of the game is to collect the paid poker hand, exchanging up to five cards for free, if necessary.
The classic poker hands from a pair of jacks are taken into account in Jacks or Better Poker. The bet may be from one to five coins. The payout for a royal flush in case of the maximum bet is extremely high, so it is recommended to always stake five coins. Their value is established by the user from the available range. It varies depending on the number of active lines. The maximum bet does not exceed one hundred dollars.
It is possible to play video poker betting on one, five, ten, twenty-five, fifty or one hundred hands. If the game is conducted on several hands, an independent deck is used for each of them. The starting combination is dealt on the one line. The user holds the cards which he needs and they are duplicated for all the hands. Further exchanges are made from different decks and players receive payouts for formed combinations.
The total payout for round or its half can be bet in the game on even chances. You will see one face-up card and four face-down ones. Your task is to find in the hole cards the one that will be higher in rank (though it is not always available). In this case, the payout will be doubled. If you fail, you will lose money.

Bonus games

Prize rounds or bonus payouts are available in Jacks or Better.


The progressive jackpot in this version of Jacks or Better is not provided.


It is fairly easy to understand the features of the control panel.
The pay table with combinations is always available on the screen. If you play on one line, it will be at the top of the screen. If you activate several hands, it moves to the left side.
On the panel there are buttons that are used to select the number of hands, bets on each of them in coins and the value of coins.
To mark the cards that you hold, click on them with the mouse before exchanging. There are no tips.
In the settings users can regulate the sound or expand the window to full screen.
There is no need to download the video poker Jacks or Better, because it can be run directly in the browser.


Pleasant design, logical and understandable control panel, presence of some settings and a section with information, games on equal chances speak well of this model that is a high-quality version of the popular video poker. So feel free to test it.
