Joker poker is a fun video poker game you can play for free. It is played with a standard deck of 52 cards, plus a joker. The joker is wild, and can be used as any card in the deck. To win you will need at least a pair of kings.
The object of Joker Poker is to obtain a five-card poker hand that contains a winning combination. The better your hand, the bigger the payout (see the pay table on the machine). Joker Poker has a wild Joker, meaning that a Joker stands for any card – hence the name of the game.
You choose how many and which of your cards are to be replaced. You may replace your cards only once.
How To Play
Choose the value of the coins you wish to wager each round, by clicking on the ‘+’ and ‘-’ buttons.
Click ‘Bet One’ or ‘Bet Max’ to select the number of coins you wish to wager. Each click on the ‘Bet One’ button increases your bet by the value of the coin you selected. Pressing ‘Bet Max’ increases your bet to the maximum amount possible – that is five coins – and deals the cards automatically. You can also click the appropriate column on the winnings table to specify your bet size.
Click ‘Deal’ (if you did not press ‘Bet Max’).
Choose which cards you wish to keep by pressing the ‘Hold’ button underneath the card, or by clicking on the card itself.
Click ‘Deal’ to replace the cards that you did not choose to hold.
If you end up with a winning hand, you can accept the win (press ‘Collect’), or you have the option to Double it. Should you choose to Double, the dealer draws an open card and you are given 4 unexposed cards to choose between. If you choose a card that is lower than the dealer’s, you lose your original win. If the cards are equal, it is a tie, and you have the option to collect your original winnings (press ‘Collect’) or Double again. If your card is higher, you win double the amount of your original winnings. You then have the option to collect your winnings or Double even further.
You can also choose to Half Double, which means you only double using half of your winning amount, and deposit the rest into your balance.
In each separate game you are subject to a dynamic Double limit, based on the size of your original win. The maximum amount you will be allowed to double will be displayed in the ‘Double-Up Limit’ box. You will not be allowed to wager any amount greater than the displayed limit.
