object of 4-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 four lines of cards. Each line uses
a different deck of cards. Each line is treated as a separate hand
for the determination of any wins.
The better your hand, the bigger the payout. You choose how many
and which of your cards are to be replaced. You may replace your
cards only once.
play the game:
Choose the value of the coins you wish to wager each round, by clicking
on the + and – buttons on the right of the screen.
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 paytable to specify the number
of coins per line.
The bet size you choose is per one line. Since there are four lines
of cards, four 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 four 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 paytable (click the Paytable
button to see it, click it again to close it).
If you have winning hands on multiple lines, your winnings are added
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.
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.

a half of your winning amount with the remainder being awarded to
your account balance. You cannot Double or Half Double, if your
winning amount exceeds 2000.

by dragging it with the mouse. Doubling is a separate game round,
and can be viewed as such in the Game History. During doubling the

half of the previous round’s win amount. The Win meter displays
the win amount of the current round.
