Balatro: All Poker Hands, Chips, and Mults

There are nine Poker Hands in Balatro, just like in standard Poker. Though they can be leveled up via Jokers and other modifier cards, each Poker Hand has a set Chip amount and set Mult amount. The Chip amount is what is added when you achieve the Poker Hand and the Mult is the multiplier applied to the total Chip number after the entire score has been counted.

    • Chips – 100
    • Mult – 8

Keep in mind that even if the base Chips and Mult of a Poker Hand are set, they will be added to because of the individual cards you select, the Jokers you have, the Enhancements, and much more. You can also level up a Poker Hand so that the base Chips and Mult rise.
