Supajax Progressive Video Poker

Supajax is a progressive version of the most popular and original video poker game, Jacks or Better. The progressive jackpot is available when you play max coins bet.

Supajax is played from a 53 card deck, a standard 52 card deck that has a “Supajax” card included in it. This card only comes into play if you have four jacks and the Supajax card, and that’s when you win the jackpot.

Supajax is a $1 game, so max coins on Supajax is $5 per bet. Like any progresssive jackpot game, especially in video poker, if the jackpot gets large enough, the game becomes a positive expectation bet. With Supajax, the magic number is $53,000, and because that’s the point where the game becomes 100.11%.

The correct strategy for Supajax is laid out in the same manner as for Jacks or Better or most other video poker strategies. Start at the top, go down the list, and as soon as you get to a hand that fits what you have, stop and hold those cards.
