Joker Poker Video Poker

Joker Poker video poker is video poker with a twist. Players benefit from the presence of four jokers in the game deck, but at the same time can’t earn payouts on pairs lower than KK. The game is popular due to the presence of special bonus payouts, including 5 of a kind and the Wild Royal Flush.

If you’re playing single hand Joker Poker video poker you’ll need to load credits into the game by clicking on the coin slot. Multi-hand formats load credits instantly, but you’ll still need to select your preferred credit denomination on the right hand side of the screen.

New cards are dealt to each hand, and Joker Poker video poker pays out relative to the strength of each hand, according to the pay table on the left of the screen.

Joker Poker Video Poker Strategy

As is the case with the majority of Video Poker games, Joker Poker video poker requires a long term rather than short term strategy which focuses on achieving the best paying hands.

Because pairs of kings or better pay out only the original stake, players tend to sacrifice pairs if the opportunity is present to achieve a higher ranking hand such as a straight flush or royal flush. By achieving a top ranked hand a player is paid out the equivalent of achieving 1,000 consecutive pairs of kings or better hands.

With four jokers present in the deck, players will tend to bet the maximum amount of credits on each hand as this significantly increases the payouts on top ranked winning hands.
