Joker Poker is a single-player Poker game with one Joker as a wild card. It also features a Double or Nothing Bonus round after every winning hand. In the Double or Nothing Bonus Round, select a card that is higher than the dealer’s card to win. When playing online Joker Poker, the Joker is your “wild” card and can substitute for any other card in the deck.
The object of the game is to build the best possible Poker hand from the cards dealt. The pay table lists all of the different card combinations that are accepted by the Joker. There are so many options to choose from before play actually begins. Select how many hands you want to play at the same time. Then click on the chips that you want to bet for the round.
Select how much you want to pay per hand under the “Joker Poker” icon. When playing one hand of Joker Poker, you can place the following bets: nickel, quarter, fifty cents, a dollar, or five bucks. Press Bet One or Bet Max and the pay table will update to show you the payout rates for the number of coins you decided to bet. The Joker then deals out your initial hand.
To hold cards to keep, click on them and a Hold symbol displays on the card. Click Draw Deal, and the Joker replaces the cards you don’t want to keep. There are no more plays at this point — this is your completed hand.
Your hand is ranked by the number of cards with the same rank, from the same suit, or having cards in consecutive order. There are also Joker-friendly combinations for a change of pace. You win when you build any of the following hands:
1. Sequential Royal
2. Royal Flush
4. Royal with Joker
5. Straight Flush
7. Full House
11. Two Pair
12. Kings or Better
