Game King Jacks or Better Poker


Game King™ Match Times Pay™ - Jacks or Better
We've made the hottest paytables even hotter!
Boost awards and payback with our Bonus multiplier wheel.

Match Times Pay™ Bonus Feature
Spin a fair wheel on every deal for a chance to win multipliers! Three matching colours inside the gold wedge earn that colour's multiplier whenever the Bonus is enabled. That multiplier is applied to the win after the draw.

Click the BONUS button to enable or disable the Bonus. Enabling the Bonus costs 40% of main bet, but boosts long-term, theoretically expected payback.

The wheel spins when the Bonus is disabled, but no multipliers are awarded.
