For Jacks or Better – the winning hands go in traditional poker order beginning with 2 of a Kind (Jacks or Better) through to a Royal Flush (The highest winning hand in poker).
Poker Hand Hierarchy:
Royal Flush = The ultimate straight containing A, K, Q, J, 10 of the same suit – highest payout of all hands.
Straight Flush = Five cards containing the same suit in sequential or consecutive order. For example, 4-5-6-7-8 of spades.
Four of a Kind = 4 of a kind number – numeric or face value. For example, 4 2's.
Full House = The combination of 3 – 2 sharing the same face values. For example, 3 7's and 2 8's is a Full House.
Flush = 5 cards containing the same suit. No numeric order is necessary. For example, A – 8 – 4– K – 2 of hearts is a flush.
Straight = 5 cards in sequential or consecutive order. The suits do not matter in a straight. For example, 6c – 7d – 8h – 9s – 10c is a straight.
3 of a Kind = 3 of the 5 cards sharing the same numeric or face value. For example, 3 10's is a 3 of a kind.
2 Pair = A combination of two like sets of numbers. For example, 2 4's and 2 8's.
2 of a Kind = A combination of like numbers. For example, 2 10's. However, this game is Jacks or Better so the 2 of a Kind needs to be Jacks or Better in the combination. That explanation is below.
Jacks or Better = The name of the game – a combination of Jacks or Better. For example, 2 Jacks or 2 Queens or 2 Kings or 2 Aces would give you a winning hand.
