The most rewarding feature in Joker Poker
When you decide to double or double half, the dealer will draw aface-up card and present you withfour face-down cards. If you:
- draw a higher card than thedealer, you win the round. Then you can collect or double (half) again until the double limit is reached;
- draw a card of the same rank as the dealer, you tie. You can either collect or double again until the double limit is reached;
- draw a lower card than the dealer's, you lose (half) your win.
Double cards are drawn from a single standard 52 card deck (without the Joker), reshuffled for each round.
What you need to know about Joker Poker
Winning combinations, or "winning hands", are evaluated according to the game Paytable and are paid at the end of the round. Paytable amounts are multiplied by coin size. Balance is updated with every bet placed and every win collected.
The lowest winning combination in Joker Poker is Pair of Kings (e.g. Ks Kh 7h 4d 3c), all lower combinations are "no hands".
All cards dealt in the main hand are replaceable, including autoheld cards.Cards can be replaced only once.
Replace cards are drawn from the same deck as the hand, excluding dealt and discarded cards.
When playing more than one hand, each hand is drawn from a unique deck and displays cards held in the main hand.
Explaining game payouts and how to read them
When you play single hand Joker Poker, the full paytable is placed above the main hand. When you play 4 or more hands, the paytable is split into two mini tables on the left and right side of the main hand.
Paytable changes according to the number of coins you wish to bet per hand. Coin size does not affect the paytable.
Example: if you play Joker Poker with 5 coins of size 1, the Pair of Kings winning combination will pay you 5, which means you will get your bet back. All higher winning combinations then pay multipliers of your initial bet.
