Multi Hand Jacks or Better

screenshot_doublingjacksorbettermhvp

Multi Hand Jacks or Better is played between you and the machine. It is a 50 hand game with a paytable based on the popular Jacks or Better game. The objective of the game is to obtain a five-card poker hand that contains at least a pair of Jacks or better, to the maximum of a Royal Flush in as many of your 50 hands as possible. See the 'Paytable' below for more details.

You place a bet and the machine gives you five initial cards. You then choose the cards you want to hold and the cards you want to discard. The machine then holds the same cards in each of other 49 “mini-hands”. When you click on “DRAW” the machine replaces the cards you discard in each of your 50 hands, using a fresh deck on every hand. You win according to the rank of your hands.

The game also features a Doubling Game which becomes active if you achieve a win on any hand. You will then be given the opportunity to double your winnings, up to a maximum of 2,000 coins.
