About Jacks Or Better

First, choose the amount you wish to wager and press the DEAL/DRAW button to receive your cards. Then, select the cards you wish to discard. When you press DEAL/DRAW button again, you will receive new cards in the positions of the cards that were not held.

In the Jacks Or Better the player must have at least a pair of jacks to win. The ranking of hands is the same as that given in the standard poker hand rankings. Only the best five cards are used to determine the winning hand, hands of lower value than a pair of jacks do not win.

A full deck of 52 cards is used and no variant hands are added. The cards rank: A (high), K, Q, J, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2. Ace also ranks low in the sequence 5-4-3-2-A (a low straight).

The ranking of hands in the Jacks Or Better is as follows. To see the payoffs look at the payoff chart.

A-K-Q-J-10, all of the same suit.

Please note that all Slotland games which share the Progressive Jackpot also employ the same mechanism that determines the jackpot win. Therefore, the probability of hitting the jackpot combination on Jacks Or Better when playing for maximum bet is not natural but controlled by this shared random mechanism in the same way as slot machines' wins.
