The crafty Joker acts as your wild card and can substitute any other card. This videopoker game is played with a 53-card deck rather than the standard 52-card deck. This extra Joker card really expands the game, making odds of a winning poker hand even greater. As one of the most thrilling poker games, when a Joker card pops up make sure to hold on to it as keeping the Joker by your side will bring you closer to that winning hand.
At the beginning of the game before cards are even dealt, the player sets the amount that they want to bet. Clicking the up and down arrows on the left will increase or reduce the bet size. Bet denominations range from just $0.05 to $5.00. Credit your account by hitting on the $5, $25 or $100 chips. Once your account has credit simply click on the ‘Bet One’ button and place your wager. You can place a bet from 1 coin to 5 coins.
When your bet is set, click the ‘Draw Deal’ button to draw 5 cards to the table. To replace the cards that you don’t want to hold, simply hit the ‘Draw Deal’ button again and the dealer will give you replacement cads.
Cards are ranked in the usual Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3 and of course the little 2. Before every game all the cards are shuffled so that you don’t know what’s coming.
In terms of the hand ranks, Joker Poker mixes it up and plays it a little differently than the standard poker games. The lowest hand is Kings or Better and the joker adds a whole extra winning hand to the game e.g., Royal and Joker or five-of-a-kind and Joker. He will just keep popping out to increase your odds.
For a chance to take even more of the Joker’s money, click ‘Yes’ after a winning hand to be in with the opportunity of doubling your winnings if you dare. You will be dealt 4 cards face down and the dealer’s card face up. If you choose one of the hole cards that is higher than the dealer’s card up then you double your money. Choose a card that is lower and the Joker will be the one making the wise cracks at Palace of Chance.
