Double Bonus & Jacks
The video poker games known as 10/7 Double Bonus and 9/6 Jacks+ rank among the most popular and potentially profitable versions of video poker in any casino.

In each video poker variation, the numbers in the titles of the games have specific meanings.

Full houses and flushes

In 10/7 Double Bonus, the 10 refers to the amount of money returned when the player makes a full house on a hand of video poker. For example, if you are betting one unit on a hand, then you will be paid 10 units when you make a full house in this version of video poker. A full house is defined as a pair and three of a kind in the same five-card hand.

The 7 in the title of 10/7 Double Bonus refers to the amount of money returned when the player makes a flush. As an illustration, if you are betting one unit on a hand, then you will be paid seven units when you make a flush. A flush is defined as five cards of the same suit in one hand.

In 9/6 Jacks+, the 9 refers to the amount of money returned when the player makes a full house. For example, if you are betting one unit on a hand, then you will be paid nine units when you make a full house.

The 6 in the title of 9/6 Jacks+ refers to the amount of money returned when the player makes a flush. For instance, if you are betting one unit on a hand, then you will be paid six units when you make a flush.

In addition to describing the amounts paid for a full house or a flush, the names 10/7 Double Bonus and 9/6 Jacks+ also serve to differentiate the games from video poker variations with lower pay tables. For example, games such as 9/6 Double Bonus and 8/5 Jacks+ exist, but they are not as lucrative for the player. The payouts for full houses and flushes are lower.
