NetEnt are masters of making even the most mundane of casino games a lot of fun and their Joker Wild video poker machine is living proof. Video poker can be somewhat boring at times, but Joker Wild by NetEnt is a game that can certainly hold the attention of the players for quite a while with its sophisticated graphics and interesting gameplay.
The game is a clear spinoff of the classic Jacks or Better video poker, but with the addition of a joker card to the deck, Joker Wild becomes a game where strong poker hands are a lot easier to come by, which is why the paytable only starts at a pair of kings and hands like five of a kind are available at solid payouts.
Make the Joker Work for You
The joker card is in the center of the Joker Wild gameplay. The game is all about finding that joker and then using it to try and make one of the many super powerful poker hands which offer large payouts. The ultimate goal of the game if to make a royal flush without a joker, which pays 4.000 coins for a 5 coin investment, same as it would in the Jacks or Better variation.
With powerful poker hands so much easier to make in Joker Wild by NetEnt, the strategy of the game changes a little bit at times, but overall speaking this is still a game where medium strength hands will be the most common winners while making the really big hands is somewhat rare. The one thing that is for sure is that of all the Joker Wild versions, NetEnt’s is the one that looks best and plays the smoothest.
