Playtech’s 50 line Joker Poker is quite an interesting game. The first hand appears at the bottom of the game and appears in large cards. The remaining screen is taken up by the other 49 hands. On the bottom right of the game you can find the coin selector option.
The gaming buttons can be found just below the main hand. On the right you will find a display that shows you how much you have bet and the display on the left shows you how much you have won. In the bottom there is a toolbar that indicates your balance. There is also a menu button on the right. The menu button takes you to the gaming history, options for game settings and the help file. You can view the paytable of the game by clicking the Pay Table button. The paytable shows you the payouts for one to five coins wagered.
To play the game you must first place your bet by selecting the coin size. The coin denominations are 0.01, 0.05, 0.10, 0.25 and 0.50. Now you must select how many coins you want to bet. There is a Bet Max option as well. Once you place your bet the amount is displayed in the BET cell on the right. Now you can press the Deal button and your cards will be dealt to you. Five cards will appear first and they form the main hand. You can click on the cards you want to hold and then press the button ‘hold’.
Now press the deal button and the remaining cards that were not selected will be replaced with new ones. The payout of each hand is independently calculated based on the payout table and the total amount displayed in the Won cell. In this delightful game of video poker the joker acts as the wild card. The lowest paying poker hand is kings or better.
