If you like Jacks or Better video poker, you will think this is 50x better! The 50 line Jacks or Better machine from Playtech software is an exciting way to play video poker.
The object of 50-Line Jacks or Better is to obtain a five-card poker hand that contains a winning combination. It differs from original Jacks or Better, since it has fifty lines of cards.

Each line uses a different deck of cards and each line is treated as a separate hand for the determination of any wins. The better your hand, the bigger the payout!
How To Play

Choose the value of the coins you wish to wager each round, by clicking on the ‘+’ and ‘-‘ buttons.
Click ‘Bet One’ or ‘Bet Max’ to select the number of coins you wish to wager. Each click on the ‘Bet One’ button increases your bet per line by the value of the coin you selected. Pressing ‘Bet Max’ increases your bet to the maximum amount possible – that is five coins per line – and deals the cards automatically. You can also click the appropriate column on the pay table to specify the number of coins per line. The bet size you choose is per one line. Since there are 50 lines of cards, 50 times the single line bet amount is subtracted from your account balance. Your total bet amount is shown in the lower right corner of the screen, after the label ‘Bet’.
Click ‘Deal’ (if you did not press ‘Bet Max’).
Choose which cards you wish to keep by pressing the ‘Hold’ button underneath the card, or by clicking on the card itself. Held cards are used across all 50 lines of cards. An auto-hold feature exists for this game whereby cards that make up a winning hand on the initial deal are automatically held for the player.
Click ‘Deal’ to replace the cards that you did not choose to hold. After the cards have been replaced, your cards are checked for any winning combinations, described in the pay table (click the ‘Pay Table’ button to see it, click again to close it).

The lowest winning combination is a pair of Jacks: a pair of any lower cards (for example, Tens) is not a winning combination; a pair of any higher cards (for example, Queens) is a winning combination.
Doubling
If you end up with a winning hand, you can accept the win (press ‘Collect’), or you have the option to Double it. Should you choose to Double, the dealer draws an open card and you are given 4 unexposed cards to choose between. If you choose a card that is lower than the dealer’s, you lose your original win. If the cards are equal, it is a tie, and you have the option to collect your original winnings (press ‘Collect’) or Double again. If your card is higher, you win double the amount of your original winnings. You then have the option to collect your winnings or Double even further.

You can also choose to Half Double, which means you only double using half of your winning amount, and deposit the rest into your balance.

In each separate game you are subject to a dynamic Double limit, based on the size of your original win. The maximum amount you will be allowed to double will be displayed in the ‘Double-Up Limit’ box. You will not be allowed to wager any amount greater than the displayed limit.

You can move the Double window (if enabled in the Options) by dragging it with the mouse. Doubling is a separate game round, and can be viewed as such in the Game History.
