Game details:


Do you like rummy or canasta? Then give Joker Poker a try at our online casino! As the name already suggests, this little fool substitutes any card – which really increases your chances of winning!

As with other poker variations, the aim of the game in Joker Poker is to get the highest possible winning hand. But pay attention: The usual winning hands have been modified a bit for this online poker game. After all, the Joker plays a role in the evaluation of your hand(s)! For example, it makes a difference whether you have a Natural Royal Flush or ‘only’ a Wild Royal Flush.

That is exactly why Joker Poker is interesting both for beginners and for professional poker players. As a beginner, you can practice your poker strategies stress-free, without a bluffing opponent to confuse you. And experts can develop entirely new tactics in order to perfect their hands. Playing poker with jokers does feel a bit different than playing without them, but it’s easy to get used to.

You can start the basic version with only one hand and place your bet with one or more coins. Now you can choose the cards you want to keep from the hand you have been dealt. If the cards in your hand already contain a promising combination, then the computer will suggest you do not discard those cards. You can follow its advice or not. That is up to you. Then you click on DRAW to get new cards to replace the ones you have chosen to discard. If you manage to put together a winning hand as set out in the paytable with the cards you have, then you win the corresponding amount of money.


Now you have the chance to put your winnings on the line and either double them, or lose everything. If you decide to gamble your winnings from the last round, you can either bet all of it or just half. Now a new hand is dealt, and the dealer turns his card face-up. The aim of the game is to pick a higher card from the remaining four. If you are right (and there isn’t always a higher card in the hand), then you have doubled the amount you chose to bet. If not, the bet you placed is lost.

The winning hands at Joker Poker are, as mentioned above, a bit different from other online video poker games you might know. They are:
