How to Play Jacks or Better Poker

Introduction and History
As casino games go, poker is one of the newer ones. 

Its ultimate ancestor is believed to have been the Persian game As Nas. A similar game in England in the eighteenth century was known as Brag and as Commerce in France. In Germany the game was called Pochen, meaning "to bluff" which the French in turn called Poque and the Americans eventually called Poker. 

Played in America by the rough and tough men of the Wild West for sometimes very high stakes, the game has seen many variations and strains that have popularized the game. Aces and Faces Video Poker is one of these many variations. 

 

Rules and Payouts
The game you are currently playing follows the standard rules of the game "Jacks or Better." The computer uses a 52-card deck that is reshuffled after each hand. The table below sets out the Payouts (in coins) for the winning hands. A similar table is also found above the cards on the game screen. The winning hands are paid out based on the number of coins that have been bet. The total amount won will depend on the number of coins bet and the value of each coin. 

Hand 1 Coin 2 Coins 3 Coins 4 Coins 5 Coins
Royal Flush 250 500 750 1000 4000
Straight Flush 50 100 150 200 250
4 of a Kind 25 50 75 100 125
Full House 9 18 27 36 45

Straight 4 8 12 16 20
3 of a Kind 3 6 9 12 15
Two Pairs 2 4 6 8 10
Jacks or Better 1 2 3 4 5

 

The Poker Hands
The following combinations make up the standard poker hands and will be used in calculating the winnings of the player in this particular game. 

Royal Flush Is the highest hand in Poker and consists of the A K Q J 10 of the same suit. 

Straight Flush Is a combination of five sequential cards of the same suit (e.g. 7 8 9 10 J of diamonds). 

Four of a Kind A combination of four cards with the same value (e.g. four 10's or four Jacks). 

Full House A combination of three cards of one value and two cards of another value (e.g. K K K 9 9 or A A Q Q Q). 

Flush Five cards of the same suit without similar value or in any order (e.g. 5 J 7 Q K of Hearts). 

Straight Five cards in sequence of any suit( e.g. 6 7 8 9 10 or 8 9 10 J Q). 

Three of a Kind Three cards of the same value (e.g. K K K 3 6 or 5 5 5 K 9). 

Two Pairs Two different pairs (e.g. J J 4 4 6 or A A Q Q K). 

Jacks or Better Two face cards of the same value or any or the above combinations
(e.g. 7 7 J J K or K K A 3 J). 

 

Playing the Game
Once you have placed your bet, press the Deal button. Five cards will be presented onto the screen. 

To hold a card click on the card surface, the word �Hold� will appear above the card. To clear the Hold simply click on the card again. 

Once you are satisfied with the cards you are holding, press the Draw button. All cards that are not held will be sucked back off screen and new cards will be blown out to replace them. 

The outcome of the game will be decided on these final cards. Payments will be made to your account balance accordingly. 

 

Doubling
If you wish, you can choose the �doubling� option on the options menu. (It is on by default.) 

The doubling option gives you a chance to further increase your winnings! After completing a winning hand, you will be given the chance to double the payout made to you or to collect your winnings. A �double� and �collect winnings� button will appear below the cards. To collect your winnings, press the �collect winnings� button. The game will then be finished and you will have a chance to play again. If you want to try and win even more, press the �double� button. 

When you press the �double� button, the cards will be sucked back into the chutes and a further 5 cards will be presented. The first card (on the extreme left) is the dealers and will be exposed. The remaining four cards will be face down. Select one of the these cards by clicking on it or pressing the �select� button. The four cards will flip over with the card you chose having a solid gold �halo� above it. If your chosen card is of a lesser value, you lose and will not receive any payout. A tie results if your chosen card is of an equal rank; you will have a chance to collect your original winnings or try again. If the your chosen card has a higher value than the dealer�s card, you win an amount double that of your original payout. You will then be given another chance to further double your payout or collect your winnings. 

Each doubling action gives you the chance to double the current value of the payout at the risk of having no payout at all should you lose. You will not be given the option of doubling if your current payout exceeds 2000 credits.
