How to play Jacks or Better Microgaming
A good looking modern video poker game, Jacks or Better by Microgaming looks particularly effective playing on your iPad or Android tablet. Still, video poker games being simple, the magic will be just as effective on the smaller mobile phone screen.
This touch screen video poker game holds its own well against the competition. Not only is it easy to quickly change your coin denomination by simply tapping the paytable, but it will automatically hold the best cards for you.
Best of all, this is a full pay 9-6 machine with a 99% expected return if you use the correct video poker strategy, but only if you play all five coins. Less and you are looking at anything between 96% to 97% payout. That means the minimum bet starts at 1.25 a hand playing all five coins, so bear that in mind if you are a more conservative video poker player.
If we do have one little criticism is the lack of fanfare on any wins. We hit a straight flush and we thought we’d gotten it wrong, until we saw the money in our bank roll. There was nothing much more indicating our win other than a small light flashing on the paytable.
Equally, there are no instructions to guide you, Microgaming expect you to know the Jacks or Better game, so just make sure you read up on the rules before you play online & on your mobile.
Still, this is a mobile video poker machine at its simplest. The paytable is good and you can’t get more classic in style and play.
