Spain-Based Spearhead Launches First Classic Poker Game

Two weeks after the launch of Romans – Legions of Gold, Spearhead Studios, a multi-faceted developer from Marbella, Spain, and member of the EveryMatrix group, presented their first video poker game – Jacks or Better.

Designed as a classic game of skill for poker enthusiasts, it offers the possibility of playing up to 100 incredible hands. The volatility of the game is low and it comes with an RTP of 99.54%.

Not for mortals

As the studio has stated, Jacks or Better is not for mere mortals, but the real heroes of Las Vegas video poker. The reason behind such a slogan refers to the nature of the game itself – it offers enthusiasts to play not only with one hand, but up to 100.

Plus, Spearhead Studios’ latest fast-paced poker title is based on the classic Jacks or Better paytable. This means that any hand with a pair of Jacks, Queens, Kings or Aces pays. Players can also choose to play with 5, 10, 25, 50 or up to 100 hands, capable of invoking payouts of up to € 400,000 (only for bets of € 5 per hand).

Once the initial hand has been dealt, players can even choose to hold up to five cards, while these are replicated on all other hands.

Like all the other titles offered by the provider, such as Mighty Fruits, Wild Gold or Blue Diamond Book, the Jacks or Better poker game comes with gameplay optimized for the mobile portrait and a seamless user experience for playing on the go. With payouts of up to 800x per hand, this title offers real Las Vegas video poker fun.

“By aiming to provide players with the ability to play up to 100 hands, you can imagine that we are giving our designers a difficult task, especially for mobile gameplay. As always, they succeeded, and I’m delighted to say that the game is completely engaging ”, said Kevin Corti, director of game development at Spearhead of the new launch.
