Bet online with Jacks or Better online poker

Poker has been a popular gaming pastime for hundreds of years. From the sedate "poque" of early French Riviera casinos to shoot-'em-up poker games in America’s Wild West and the 24/7 Vegas casino poker tables, the game of poker has always had an air of action and mystery about it. Today, poker is one of the games most associated with casino gambling, both among veteran poker players and casino newcomers.

Brick-and-mortar casinos limit participation in their poker games to the high rollers because they find it unprofitable to have low-betting gamers take up space at the poker tables but online gamers can play the variation of poker that they want, at any time and from any location on their PC or mobile device. You can bet online at the betting level that suits your budget and play for as long as you want in the welcoming atmosphere of an online gaming entertainment venue.

The online casino offers all the same amenities that you’d find in a brick-and-mortar casino along with easy access, real cash casino bonuses that can boost your account by 100s% or more, a friendly 24/7 support staff and much more.

You can play all of your favorite poker games online including the popular Caribbean Hold ‘Em Poker Progressive Jackpot, Deuces Wild Poker, Double Double Bonus Poker and Loose Deuces Poker. One of the most popular poker variations at the online casino is Jacks or Better – give it a try!

Playing Jacks or Better Online

To Play Jacks or Better Poker online you start out by placing your wager. You’ll receive five cards and, similar to a traditional poker game, you can keep or discard any or all of those cards. Your final goal is to build a winning hand based on a Jacks or Better Poker Chart.

The winning hands include:

  • A Royal Flush is the highest paying hand in Jacks or Better. It involves 5 high-value cards of a matching suit that run in sequence – ten, jack, queen, king and ace of the same suit.
  • A Straight-Flush is made up to five low-value cards of the same suit (e.g. 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 of the same suit).
  • Four of a Kind are four cards of the same number. It doesn’t matter whether they’re high-value cards or low-value cards, as long as they are four similar numbers (i.e. four jacks, four threes, etc).
  • A Full House is a hand that includes three of the same number and a pair (e.g. three sevens and two aces).
  • Four to a Royal Flush is a hand that has four of the five cards needed for a Royal Flush. (e.g. a ten, Jack, Queen and King of a particular suit….only the ace is missing). It doesn’t matter what the fifth card is.
  • A Flush is a hand that contains five cards in which the suit is identical, with no need for the cards to be consecutively-numbered. Only the suit needs to match.
  • Three of a Kind hand contains 3 cards of the same number, with no need for the suit to be the same (e.g. a ten of Hearts, ten of Diamonds and ten of Spades).
  • A Straight means that you have five cards in sequential order. There’s no need for them to be of a matching suit (e.g. six of hearts, seven of diamonds, eight of clubs, nine of spades and ten of diamonds).
  • Four to a Straight Flush is like Four-to-a-Royal-Flush -- four of the five cards that you would need for a Straight Flush but you’re missing that last card (e.g. two of spades, three of diamonds, four of hearts, five of clubs and a fifth random card, giving you four of the five cards needed for a Straight Flush).
  • A hand with Two Pairs involves a hand that contains two separate pairs of cards (e.g. two twos and two Kings).
  • A Three to a Royal Flush has three cards needed to form a Royal Flush but is missing the last two cards that would complete that Royal Flush.
  • Four to a Flush – four cards of the same suit, the fifth, for a full Flush, is missing.
  • Three to a Straight Flush involves three cards of the same suit, missing the last 2 cards needed to complete the straight flush (e.g. six, seven and eight of clubs, missing 2 cards to complete the straight-flush).
  • Two to a Royal Flush is a hand that contains two cards needed for a Royal Flush.
