Joker card has been an important part of the world of card games for many years and through many games. In Joker Poker by Playtech, the joker card holds its usual function of substituting for all other cards, making big hands more likely and a five of a kind hand possible.
Joker Poker by Playtech is a jolly game with two jokers acting as game’s mascots and bright graphics working well in keeping a positive gameplay atmosphere. The addition of the joker card makes it easier for players to make hands, which is why the paytable only starts at a pair of kings, compared to the more commonly found paytable with a pair of jacks as the minimum payout hand.
Find the Joker for Five of a Kind
The strategy of Joker Poker is fairly straight forward, as the players should usually hold on to starting hands that guarantee a win and keep any ace, king or joker in cases where they start without a winning hand.
Chasing after straight and flushes is pretty much equally beneficial as it would be in a regular Jacks or Better game, while a royal flush without any joker in it provides the game’s ultimate jackpot of up to 5.000 coins when betting 5 coins per spin.
Playtech’s Joker Poker makes the video poker gameplay more exciting and adds additional winning potential, which makes it a lot more appealing to the recreational gamblers out there. However, the lower payout rate of just 98.59% means that the more serious players will likely want to look for higher paying video poker variations, which may be less fun to play, but are more lucrative in the long run.
