Do you feel at home when sitting at a poker table? Then you’ll love this digital version of the classic game. Jacks or Better Double Up is a single player video poker game featuring classic casino game characteristics: fast gameplay, and high payout. What is new about this game is that it has the look and feel of a computer game rather than a traditional video poker game.
Jacks or Better Double Up allows you to play up to 25 hands, with a better graphical display. The same coloured background from the original has once again been used here, except with added panache and polish.
You load the game. The interface is smooth and to-the-point. You see the various payouts from the various hands displayed. At the top of the screen is further useful info. And, of course, the five cards that you are dealt are below. Jacks or Better provides you with the smallest payout and a royal straight flush gives you the biggest – x250 your wager.
At the bottom of the interface is the area that you get to customise. Give it a look that fits you! You get to adjust the amount of hands that are in play per round. What does this mean exactly? It means you get to alter between a single hand and up to five, 10 and 25 hands. Next up is the bet level. Yup, you have maneuvering space on this too: a range of between one and five.
Finally, you have the option to change around the coin value that is in play. You can switch between €0.01 and €0.50. If you have the highest coin value, highest bet level and most amount of hands in play, you will be playing a maximum overall bet of €62.50 per round. Hit that Max Bet Button to go beast mode with the bet!
One of the coolest thing about Jacks or Better Double Up is the double up gamble feature in which you can guess the color of the next card. You get the opportunity to double your winnings after every winning hand.
Here’s how it works: after a win, hit GAMBLE. You will go to a new screen and see five cards that are facing down. You need to choose the colour of the cards one at a time. If you guess right, your winnings double. But if you lose you will lose all the winnings and return to the main game. The bonus game will go on until you guess wrong. Of course, you don’t have to gamble your winning. You can simply collect them!
So go ahead. Hit the poker table and try your hand at Jacks of Better Double Up!
