How to play

  • Select the number of credits you wish to bet on each hand (from 1 to 5, default = 5) via the Credits field using a method below;
    • use the up and down arrows beside the field
    • use the Min and Max buttons beside the field
  • Select the number of hands on which to play (from 1 to 100, default = 100), via the Hands field using a method below;
    • type the number required into the field
    • use the up and down arrows beside the field
    • use the Min and Max buttons beside the field
    • select 10, 25, 50 or 100 hands using the corresponding button
    If you specify more than 1 hand, the hands form one individual bet with one Bet ID.
  • Select your stake value either using the up and down arrows in the Stake field, or by typing the amount into the Stake field and pressing Enter or clicking on a blank area of the game screen. The Stake amount shown is the stake you are placing on a single credit on a single hand.

    The default Stake varies by currency. In this Euro example it is €0.01. The Stake amount must be within the minimum and maximum bet amounts (see ‘What are the bet amount limitations and restrictions on play for Jacks or Better 100 Hand?’). If you enter a Stake larger than the maximum Stake allowed and press Enter, the Stake reduces automatically. If your balance is more than the maximum Stake, the Stake drops to the maximum Stake value. If your balance is less than the maximum Stake, the Stake drops to your balance. If you enter a Stake smaller than the minimum Stake allowed and press Enter, the Stake changes automatically to the minimum Stake value but if your available balance is less than the minimum Stake, you cannot place the bet.

  • Total Stake is the total amount (Credits x Hands x Stake) that you will be betting on one Deal of the selected number of hands. The Total Stake amount must be within the minimum and maximum total stake amounts (see ‘What are the bet amount limitations and restrictions on play for Jacks or Better 100 Hand’).
  • Click on Deal to place your bet. The Total Stake amount will be removed from your available balance and the first 5 cards will be dealt.
  • Select the cards you wish to keep using the Hold buttons located below the cards. Once a card is held, the button displays ‘Held’. To unhold a held card, click on the Held button located below it. If you chose to play more than one hand, the held cards will be reflected in your other hands.
  • Click on the Draw button to redraw cards that you did not Hold.

Payout Table

To understand the potential payouts for each winning combination, click on the Payout button. This will display the table below;

Jacks or Better 100 Hand Payout Table

The values displayed here are Base Odds multiplied by number of Credits.

Potential payouts are calculated using Credits x Stake x Base Odds.

Base Odds are the same as the values in column 1.

Please note: when playing the maximum number of Credits, there is an added bonus for a Royal Flush giving a value of ‘x 4000’.

Eg;
For a unit Stake of £1.00, with 1 Credit per hand, a Straight Flush would return 50 x £1, equaling £50.
For a unit Stake of £1.00, with 5 Credits per hand, a Straight Flush would return 250 x £1, equaling £250.

Winning Bets

A winning bet occurs when one or more of your hands achieve a winning combination of cards. Individual win amounts are shown on the relevant winning hands, the total win amount is shown in the Winnings meter, and the Win Combination Display is updated. If you chose to play more than one hand, when you hover your mouse pointer over any hand, it is temporarily displayed in the main card area. The winning combinations available are displayed below;

When you have achieved at least one winning combination, you are given 3 choices; Collect, Gamble or Gamble Half. If you Collect, all your winnings are added to your balance and the game ends. For details on the Gamble and Gamble Half opportunities, see ‘The Gamble Round’.

The Gamble Round

If you Gamble, you can increase your winnings by guessing the colour of the next card drawn (red or black). You can guess up to 5 times, and you can collect your accumulated winnings at any time. However, if you guess incorrectly prior to collecting your winnings, all your winnings will be forfeited. 

If you Gamble Half, you are offered the same opportunity as with Gamble, but you only risk half of your original winnings. The other half is safe and will be added to your balance once the game ends.

When you select Gamble or Gamble Half, the feature below is displayed;

One standard deck of 52 playing cards is used. To guess whether the next card drawn will be red or black, click on the appropriate coloured button. The card will then be turned over. If you guessed correctly, another card will be displayed and you can guess again. If you guessed incorrectly, the game will end and the New Game button will be displayed.
