How To Play
Jacks or Better Multi-Hand is a simple game of five-card draw that allows you to choose how many hands you play per round. The game is very simple and takes no time at all to master.
You first need to decide how many hands you are playing per round, 1, 4, 10, 25 or 50. After you have set the number of hands, you need to choose a coin size and how many coins you bet per hand. You can bet anything up to five coins per hand. There are buttons to add one coin to your bet or to quickly bet the maximum number of coins.
If you look at the game’s paytable you will see that there are five columns. These columns represent how many coins you have bet per hand. This means that if you bet one coin your are playing for the payouts in the first column, if you bet two coins you play for the second column, and so on until the fifth column.
After you have set your bet click on ‘Deal’ to receive your first five cards. You then need to decide which cards to hold. If you are playing multiple hands then any cards that you hold are held across all of the hands. This means that if you are initially dealt a winning hand then you can be sure of winning from every hand that you play. After deciding which cards to hold click on ‘Deal’ again to replace the remaining cards. You will then be paid out for any winning hands.
The lowest winning hand is Jacks or Better and it is followed by Two Pair, Three of a Kind, Straight, Flush, Full House, Four of a Kind, Straight Flush and a Royal Flush.
After winning you can click on the ‘Gamble’ button to play a small game and try to increase your winnings. You have the choice of ‘Double’, ‘Double Half’ or ‘Collect’. The first two options give you the chance to bet your winnings, or half of your winnings, to try to double the payout. You are shown a face-up card and need to pick from four facedown cards to find one that is higher in value. If you pick correctly then you can keep repeating the process until you hit the game’s double up limit.
As explained above, the payouts change according to how many coins you have bet. If you are betting one coin per hand then Jacks or Better pays 1x, Two Pair pays 2x, Three of a Kind pays 3x, Straight pays 4x, Flush pays 5x, Full House pays 8x, Four of a Kind pays 25x, Straight Flush pays 50x, and a Royal Flush pays 250x.
If you are playing with more than one coin then the payouts are multiplied by how many coins you have bet. For instance, if you are playing with four coins then a Straight would pay 16x (4 x 4). This rule is true for all hands except the Royal Flush, which offers a boosted payout of 4000x if you are betting five coins per hand.
