Jokers Wild Video Poker

Jokers Wild is a bit different than the other video poker games that are offered at both land based and online casinos. But with that being said, different does not mean that this game is not one that you should try. In fact, Jokers Wild is a lot of fun and can be very profitable if you know what you are doing. Just like any other type of video poker, it takes a bit of time to learn what Jokers Wild is all about.

Generally speaking, the first rule that you should be aware of is that Jokers Wild is played with a 53 card deck. In other words, the game consists of a standard 52 card deck and one joker. As you can probably tell from the name, the joker is a wild card that you can use as any card. This gives you a better chance of forming a winning combination because there is another card that you can use to your advantage. Although not 100 percent accurate, a joker will appear in just about one out of every 10 hands that are played.

The highest paying hand that you can obtain during a game of Jokers Wild is a Royal Flush. On the bottom side of things, two pair will win you the least amount of money. But with that being said, winning anything at Jokers Wild is better than nothing. In between those two hands, you can also win by obtaining Five of a Kind, Joker Royal Flush, Straight Flush, Full House, Flush, Straight, or Three of a Kind. It is important that you know what these winning combinations look like so that you do not end up missing out on anything.

There are many Jokers Wild strategies that you can put into effect. If you are interested in these, you can find them online or through a video poker book; either way works.

All in all, thanks to an added card, you have a better chance of winning with Jokers Wild than most other video poker games.
