International Game Technology (IGT), a global leader in creating the major games that players love and the systems that improve the player experience, has announced the release of Jacks or Better video poker for Smartphone devices. A successful online IGT title, Jacks or Better video poker is now available on iPad®, iPhone®, iPod® Touch and Android™ devices and includes the "Double-Up Gamble" feature. Stakes range from £0.25 to £50 per hand.
Players draw five cards from a standard deck of 52 and must decide whether to hold or discard any or all of their hand. A pair of Jacks or higher is needed to win. All wins trigger the “Double-Up Gamble" feature, if it is enabled.
The feature is a 50:50 red and black accumulator where users must select between "red", "black" and "collect". If red or black is correctly chosen then the previous win amount is doubled and the opportunity is given to the player again.
Alex Kelly, vice president Interactive, IGT, said, “Jacks or Better video poker is an innovative product which will add significant value to an operator's mobile portfolio. The advances in Smartphone technology have allowed us to demonstrate our company strengths and build on an online title which has been a firm favourite to create a mobile version that is instantly recognisable to players."
