Double Jackpot Poker Tips
- Keeping an unmatched high-ranking card when you only have a Pair is not advised. It minimizes the possibility of building better hands. Don't keep Two Pairs, either, or you will sacrifice the potential of drawing a Three- or Four-of-a-Kind, which both have much higher payouts. Some players, however, like to hold onto both Pairs to make a Full House, but it is only advised if at least one Pair is Jacks or Higher.
- If you are dealt a hand with three cards in sequential order, only hold the sequence. Discard the other cards. You now have up to three ways of winning different Straights. This is particularly useful when playing multi-hand versions of Double Double Jackpot Poker. Also, playing more credits increases the payouts on winning hands at Silver Oak Casino.
