Joker poker is any type of poker game where the Joker card can be used as a wild card and/or has some type of value. The mind behind the decision of what the joker will represent is the dealer.
The dealer uses a 53-card deck ( a standard 52-card deck plus the Joker card ), which is shuffled after each hand. For specific details regarding each winning combination, please check the Pay Table at the top of the screen.
In order to play Joker Poker:
After betting using the "Bet One" button, click on the "Deal" button, whereupon you will be dealt one five-card Poker hand. (If the player utilizes the "Bet Max" button to bet, the deal will occur automatically.) After the first draw, click on the cards, if any, that you wish to keep. The word "HOLD" will display on the card.
Click on "Draw" thereby replacing the cards that you have not chosen to hold with new ones.
Double Playoff Round:
When you produce a winning hand you are offered a double playoff round in which you are given the opportunity to "Double" your winnings. If you do not wish to participate in the double playoff round, simply click on "Collect".
How to play the Double Playoff Round :
Click on one of the four cards that remain face down. Card will turn over and display the value. If the card that you choose is of a higher value than the card that the machine turned over - you win, and the double playoff round continues, if you wish.
Please Note: If you do not wish to continue participating in the double playoff round, simply click on "Collect".
If the card that you choose is of a lower value than the card turned over by the computer, you lose your bet and the double playoff round is over. Please Note: The double playoff round automatically ends after a total of five rounds.
Common Winning Combinations:
