Playing Joker Poker Online

Joker Poker is a variation of video poker.  There is fifty-three cards in the deck including one joker.  The joker is wild and can be replaced by any other card to make a winning poker hand, including a five of a kind.  If you get a natural royal flush (no joker in the hand) you can win up to 5,000 credits, which is a 1000 more credits than most video poker machines.  You can typically wager between $0.05 to $25 per Joker Poker hand.
    The Joker does help you complete many hands, but it does come at a price.  The minimum paying poker hand is a pair of Kings instead of the usual pair of Jacks or better.  You will also have a slightly harder time getting a natural royal flush, because there is an extra card in the deck.

Where to play Joker Poker Online

The pay out table at the top casinos doesn't vary much.  Where to play will mostly be a personal preference.  The big difference is the pay out for a 4 of a kind, which will happen about one out every 117 hands or so.  Getting a bigger pay out for quads is at the expense of getting a smaller pay out for five of a kind and a Royal Flush, both of which are rare events.  For the most part playing the Joker Poker game at Bovada Casino is the more conservative game, while playing at Platinum Play and the Bet365 Casino is a more aggressive game.
