Jacks or Better Pro is a Video Poker application for the iPhone and iPod Touch that provides an immersive Video Poker gaming experience as well as a complete statistical analysis tool. With Jacks or Better Pro you learn the best strategy for maximizing payout and minimizing risk.
The underlying, algorithmically based, Jacks or Better Statistical Analysis System was developed to calculate the frequency of the Jacks or Better hand ranks (Royal Flush, Straight Flush...) for all discard combinations of the current hand. Using the calculated hand rank frequency information, generated by the analysis system, the application is able to provide expected long term payout returns and short term bet risk information.
Using Jacks or Better Pro can make you a better player. A better player plays longer. After all, the longer you play, the better the chance to hit that Royal Flush that you have been playing for!

What's New in Version 1.1
New Feature for version 1.1!
Quick Set - Have you wondered what you should do when you are dealt four cards to a Straight Flush and a High Pair? How about a small Flush but with three or four cards to a Royal Flush? Maybe you already know what to do but you are not sure why?
With Quick Set you can now quickly "stack the deck" to deal any card combination you might want to analyze. Just layout that tricky hand and take a look at how the different discard choices affect the expected payout and risk.
Played in Vegas
I actually pulled out this during my recent trip to Vegas and compared it to the slot machines around me. Only having to pay once to play, and being about to avoid the smoke was a big plus. The graphics are very well done and I've seen zero bugs with the game. It is a good way to spend a few minutes when waiting (or stuck on a plane). The game is fun and addictive, as you try to see what top score you get. I would like to see more "Top Score" features to track the highest I went with my bankroll.
If you want to improve your play at Jacks or Better Video Poker, this is the game to buy. Not only as the graphics and animations smooth and quick, but the statistics and teaching are sound and easy to understand. I was sceptical at first, but I am glad I spent the few dollars to get this great game!
The only thing that would ask for is a companion game for Deuces Wild Video Poker. I would buy it in a heartbeat!
Great way to learn the odds
Great app and no crashes. I wish there was an iPad version since it is VERY hard to distinguish between a Club and a Spade for the face cards. This app can be hard on the eyes after several hands.
