Joker Wild is based on five card draw. Other variations that are similar to Joker Wild are Joker Wild Aces or Better and Joker Wild Two Pair or Better. In Joker Wild you need to have a pair of Kings or Better in order to earn a payout. The joker is the wild card in this regular five card draw game. The deck is going to be 53 cards with one joker. The objective of the game is to have the best hand that you possibly can or at least the Pair of Kings or Better. If you have a King and Joker then you have the pair of Kings. The Joker also allows for a five of a kind that has a pretty decent payout. To earn the best payouts you need to place the maximum bet of five coins or credits. The joker can also help you earn the straights and flushes that are otherwise very difficult to obtain.
Joker Wild is five card draw, which means you are dealt five cards after you place your max bet. Of those five cards you need to keep the hand that will work out the best for you. For example if you are dealt a 2, 3, 8, ten, King you would want to keep the king. Remember by having a pair of kings or better you can win at least double your bet. If you don’t have the Joker or King then you should scrap the entire hand. It is possible the 2, 3 could lead to a straight or flush, but that is a very low chance.
If you have a pair that is lower than Kings you have two options. You can hold it with the possibility of getting a three or four of a kind or you can scrap all five cards in favour of a better hand. You should always hold on four cards that will lead to a Royal Flush as that is the better payout in the game. If you earn a Royal Flush you will receive 4000 coins or credits for the maximum bet.
