All American 100 Play is an interesting variation of Jacks or Better that is available online and can be played with bets from $/€0.10 to $/€62.50. This video poker game was developed by one of the largest providers of gaming content for the online gambling industry, NetEnt. More importantly, it allows players to bet on up to 100 hands at the same time, which makes the game much more intense and exciting.

Rules and Gameplay

NetEnt’s All American 100 Play is played with a single deck of 52 cards, which are shuffled before each deal. The standard video poker rules apply – players can choose a bet level from 1 to 5, select a coin denomination, and specify the number of hands they wish to bet on in the current round. Up to 100 hands can be played simultaneously and the bet size would be multiplied by the number of the active hands.

When players receive the initial 5 cards, they can keep or discard them and once they click the Deal/Draw button, all discarded cards are replaced with new ones in the hand. Winning combinations are paid out instantly according to the paytable of the game. Besides, players have the option to increase their winnings from the current round by selecting the Double Up Gamble feature, which gives them the chance to double their prize five times. All they need to do is guess correctly the color of a face-down card.

Paytable and Specific Features

2 Pair 1 2 3 4 5
Jacks or Better 1 2 3 4 5
2 Pair 1 2 3 4 5
Jacks or Better 1 2 3 4 5

While this game seems rather simple, it has quite an unconventional paytable. This means that players will need to find a strategy for this particular version of video poker. Alternatively, they can try to develop their own. What sets this version apart from regular Jacks or Better is the fact that it pays more for Straight Flush and Four of a Kind hands – from the traditional 50:1 and 25:1 to 90:1 and 35:1.

At the same time, it offers the same payouts for Full House, Flush, and Straight at 8 times the stake. Also, Two Pair hands are paid even money instead of 2:1. All this results in a completely different strategy and an RTP of 98.11% (when betting 5 coins). Of course, the strategy would remain the same whether you play with 1 or 100 hands.

Conclusion

All American 100 Play is an interesting game, especially when played in multi-hand mode. Players should carefully adjust their basic strategy to its specific payouts, however, if they want to make the most of their game session.
