Most versions of the popular Jacks or Better video poker really look and feel the same which is why Microgaming’s Supajax is a real game changer. While the game is essentially a version of Jacks or Better with the same paytable and general gameplay, an interesting addition of the Supajax card makes it possible to win the lucrative progressive jackpot.
The progressive jackpot in the game of Supajax pays higher than any other hand you could make, including a royal flush and it keeps growing until someone takes it down. The progressive jackpot is won by finding four jacks plus the Supajax card to make five of a kind.
Adding a Twist to a Classic Game
The game of Jacks or Better is a cracked one and any video poker player knows how to play it perfectly. This is why Microgaming clearly decided that it was time for a change and added the new element of this potential huge win with the progressive jackpot card that works hand in hand with quad jacks.
As difficult as it may be to hit this hand combination, the reality of things is that your chances of getting it are the same as getting a royal flush as you need five specific cards to get there. The value of the jackpot exceeds the value of royal flush payment, which is why keeping jacks and going for this top payout is really what this game is all about. Good luck to all the jackpot hunters out there!
