Joker Wild

Game Overview

  • Joker Wild Double Up™ follows conventional poker rules concerning how hands are dealt and formed. The game features regular poker hands with one exception: A joker is a "wild" card, which means that it is counted as the most favourable card when used to complete a winning hand.
  • The game is a 53 card deck game, the regular 52-card deck plus a joker, where the cards are reshuffled for each hand.
  • Each hand is played with a separate deck and each deck is changed to a new deck after each game.
  • A minimum of 1 hand and up to a maximum of 25 hands can be selected to be played before the cards are dealt.
  • The game is played with 1-5 bet levels and different coin values.
  • Bet level is the number of coins bet per hand.
  • COINS displays the number of coins the player has available to wager.
  • The coin value is set using the COIN VALUE selector.
  • BET shows the total bet in coins.
  • MAX BET plays the game at the current number of hands, the highest bet level, and the current coin value.
  • A hand win in coins is equal to the payout shown in the paytable.
  • Hand wins in currency are equal to the win in coins multiplied by the coin value.
  • Winning combinations and payouts are made according to the paytable.
  • Simultaneous wins on different hands are added.
  • Only the highest winning combination is paid for each hand.
  • All coin wins pay on hand wins and gamble feature wins only.
