Joker Poker Highlights
Joker Poker is played with a standard deck of 52 cards with a Joker included making the total number of cards per game 53. The Joker is of course wild and can substitute for any other card when making winning combinations.
You're dealt 5 cards face up. Hold any cards you like to make the highest paying hand. Keep in mind there is one wild Joker in the deck as well and you can use this to complete any winning hand.
You can bet up to 5 coins per hand and the coin denominations are 1¢, 5¢, 25¢, $1, $2, and $5. The highest winning combination for this game is a natural Royal Flush which pays out 5000 coins on max bet.
This is the game I was playing a while back that dealt me the ace, king, queen, joker, and 10 of diamonds on max bet. For just a fleeting moment, I had visions of discarding the Joker.
Don't worry, I didn't! But the thought did zip through my mind. I had to be happy with 500 coins. It was a struggle, but I managed it!
