How To Play
Joker Poker is a simple game of five-card draw, except that the game includes Joker cards, which act as wildcards to help you form stronger poker hands.
Before the cards are dealt you first need to set your coin size and how many coins you want to bet per round. You can use the ‘Bet One’ button to add a coin to your bet or just click on ‘Bet Max’ to bet the maximum five coins quickly.
Above the cards is the game’s paytable. It has five columns and these columns correspond to how many coins you have bet. For example, if you bet one coin per hand then you are playing for the first column, if you bet two coins then you are playing for the second column, and so on.
When you are happy with your bet click on ‘Deal’ to receive your first five cards. You then need to choose which cards to hold. If your initial hand contains a winning combination then the cards will be automatically held, but you can change this by clicking on them. Once you have decide which cards to hold click on ‘Deal’ again to replace the remaining cards. You will then be paid out for any winning hands.
The lowest winning hand is Kings or Better and it is followed by Two Pairs, Three of a Kind, Straight, Flush, Full House, Four of a Kind, Straight Flush, Joker Royal Flush, Five of a Kind and a Natural Royal Flush.
If you win then you are offered the chance to gamble your winnings, or half of them, to try to double them. In the gamble game you are shown a face-up card and need to pick from four facedown cards to find one that is higher in value. If you pick correctly then you can keep repeating the process until you hit the game’s double up limit.
As explained above, the payouts change according to how many coins you have bet. If you are betting one coin per hand then Kings or Better pays 1x, Two Pair pays 1x, Three of a Kind pays 2x, Straight pays 3x, Flush pays 5x, Full House pays 7x, Four of a Kind pays 17x, Straight Flush pays 50x, Joker Royal Flush pays 100x, Five of a Kind pays 200x, and a Natural Royal Flush pays 750x.
If you are playing with more than one coin then the payouts are multiplied by how many coins you have bet. For instance, if you are playing with five coins then a Flush would pay 25x (5 x 5). This rule is true for all hands except the Royal Flush, which offers a boosted payout of 5000x if you are betting five coins per hand.
