Jacks or Better Video Poker Tips

The first thing to remember when playing Jacks or Better is to keep any paying hand except one that has four cards to a royal flush. The sacrifice is worth it if you get a royal flush..

Next, when you're dealt a hand that has no payout you should:

  • Hold any four cards to a straight flush
  • Hold any three cards to a royal flush
  • Hold any four cards to a flush
  • Hold any low pair for three of a kind
  • Hold any four-card consecutive straight
  • Hold any two high cards of the same suit
  • Hold any three cards to a straight flush
  • Hold J, Q, and K of different suits.
  • Hold any two high cards of different suits
  • Hold J, Q or K with a Ten of the same suit
  • Hold any single high card
  • If you don’t get dealt any of the above you should draw five new cards.
  • These tips will improve your odds against the game and make your money last a lot longer
