Joker Poker Video Poker
Video poker Joker poker is played with a 53 card deck i.e. a standard deck and a Joker. The Joker acts as a wild card. Up on the screen you can see a table of winning combinations and payouts. The goal of the game is to form one of the winning combinations. These combinations from lowest to highest are as follows: Kings or better (a pair), Two pairs, Three of a kind, Straight, Flush, Full house, Four of a kind, Straight Flush, Joker Royal Flush (where one of the cards is Joker), Five of a kind (this is four of a kind and a Joker), and Natural Royal Flush (without Joker). Payouts of Joker poker are as follows: Natural Royal Flush – 750 : 1; Five of a kind – 200 : 1; Joker Royal Flush – 100 : 1; Straight flush – 50 : 1; Four of a kind – 17 : 1; Full house – 7 : 1; Flush – 5 : 1; Straight – 3 : 1; Three of a kind – 2 : 1; Two pairs – 1 : 1; Kings or better – 1 : 1. After the bets are placed, players should press the “Deal” button and they will be dealt five cards each. Then players need to decide which cards they want to keep by pressing the button “Hold” and which ones to replace. Players are allowed to replace cards once per session. If a player managed to form one of the winning Joker Poker combinations, he can either take the payout by pressing “Collect” button, or continue the game by clicking the “Double” button. If you do that, you will be dealt one card face up and four cards face down. Then you need to guess a card with a greater value than the faced up card (out of the 4 cards that are face down). If you succeed, your winnings will be doubled but if not, you will lose all your winnings. In case both cards are of the same value, you will also get your winnings. When doubling, the lowest card is considered 2, and the highest one is Ace. In joker Poker video poker suits do not count. The Joker beats any card, including the Aces.
