The 9/6 Jacks or Better strategy guide you shouldn’t play without

Thinking of trying video poker at Slots of Vegas? Good call. It’s an incredibly fun and exciting version of poker, especially because you can win without having to face off against another player. In 9/6 Jacks or Better, you win when you’re holding a pair of Jacks or anything better.

But you don’t have to play the original hand you’re dealt. Instead you can throw away any or all of your cards and replace them with new ones. Sometimes, however, it can be difficult to know which cards to hold and which ones to throw away.


That’s why we’ve created this handy strategy guide. You’ll notice 36 different hand combinations. To use the strategy sheet, just look for your hand and play it in the way that it’s closest to the top of the chart. Let us explain. Pretend that you’re dealt 4♣,4♦,5♥,6♠,7♣. In this case, you’d keep 4♣,4♦ rather than 4♦,5♥,6♠,7♣. Why? Because a low pair on the chart appears higher than a 4-card straight without any high cards.

To be effective, make sure you search for the highest possible hand on the chart. That’s especially crucial if you’ve got several ways you can play your hand. Take this hand for example. Let’s say you’re dealt 7♣,7♦,10♥,J♥,Q♥. You should keep 10♥,J♥,Q♥ in this instance because your 3-card Royal Flush appears higher up on the chart than that low pair of sevens.
