Mega Jacks

Playtech’s MegaJacks is a fun version of this software company’s video poker offering and is a much sought after game in the company’s portfolio. An added bonus to MegaJacks is that it comes with an exciting progressive jackpot that keeps growing until one lucky player wins it!

The object of Playtech’s MegaJacks is to gain a five card poker hand with a winning combination. The better the combination, the higher the payout will be. The payout is determined by a special table that allows players to view winning combinations and how much they will get paid out.

Players first select the amount they wish to wager. The maximum amount allowed in Playtech’s MegaJacks game is 5 coins x 25 c each. Five cards are then dealt and players need to decide which to hold and which to discard. They may keep or discard all or some, with the intention of forming the best poker hand possible. Discarded cards are then replaced to form the player’s final hand.

Players need to form a minimum poker hand of two Jacks in order to win. Any cards lower than this will not be considered a winning combination and the player will lose his or her bet.

MegaJacks offers players who manage to form a winning hand, the opportunity to double their wins. To do this, the player first presses the Double icon and the video poker machine then deals for cards face down and one face up. If the player picks a card from the four unexposed ones that is lower than the dealer’s exposed card, the original bet is lost. A card that is higher earns the player double the original winnings and he or she can then go on to double yet again. A tie allows the player to collect the original winnings or continue to double.

The progressive element of MegaJacks is very exciting, with a percentage of every wager made on this video poker machine across the Playtech casinos on the internet, going into the jackpot pool. If the player wagers the maximum number of coins and then draws a Royal Flush the jackpot is won!

The interface of this game is bright and straight to the point, combining the excellent quality of Playtech software and the standard that has come to be expected from such a leading company in the online gambling industry.

All in all, Playtech’s MegaJacks is a superb game, allowing players to stand in line to win great sums, as well as the chance to grab the progressive jackpot.
