Game Rules

Genie's Hi-Lo Jackpot

Higher/Lower, Red/BlackJackpot!

The objective of playing Genie’s Hi-Lo Jackpot is to predict the next card. You can bet that it is higher or lower, red or black. Each correct round will move you up a level. Reaching the eleventh level will award the Progressive Jackpot. This is a traditional casino card game, played in a similar style to online blackjack and poker games.

How to Play:

  • Choose the initial stake by using the +/- buttons.
  • Press Confirm when you have selected your bet.
  • Choose a card from Genie’s hand by clicking on it. You can also choose Autopick to have a card selected at random.

Once the first card has been revealed, you must choose from the following options:

  • Higher or Same and Red = bet that the next card will be higher or equal and red (Diamonds or Hearts).
  • Lower or Same and Red = bet that the next card will be lower or equal and red.
  • Higher or Same and Black = bet that the next card will be higher or equal and black (Clubs or Spades).
  • Lower or Same and Black = bet that the next card will be lower or equal and black.

Making a correct choice will move you up a level and increase your winnings.

An incorrect guess will payout the winnings from the current level and end the game.

Reaching the eleventh level will award the Progressive Jackpot and end the game.

Please note:

  • Aces are the lowest cards.
  • Joker Cards are Wild and will automatically move you to the next level.

Progressive Jackpot:

The Jackpot is displayed on the top left of the screen. It is awarded if you make enough correct guesses to reach the eleventh level.

The Progressive Jackpot corresponds to the bet amount, and will thus increase if you increase the bet.

A Progressive Jackpot is funded by taking a small percentage from all players’ bets on the game. The casino will also provide a base amount, normally called a seed. When the Jackpot is won by a player, it will reset to the seed amount and start growing again.

The Jackpot is awarded and funded as follows:

Seed (amount provided by casino for Jackpot) = 250 x Bet.

Contribution Rate (percentage taken from each bet to fund Jackpot) = 3.80%.

Win Condition (result needed to win Jackpot) = reach the eleventh level.

Win Requirement (how to be eligible to win Jackpot) = no special requirements. Play Genie’s Hi-Lo Jackpot for real money at William Hill Casino.

The theoretical RTP (Return to player) can differ depending on the bet type:
