JOKER POKER SCREENSHOT
As in every draw poker game, in Joker Poker the Player is dealt 5 cards face up. Then, the Player decides which cards to keep or "hold" and which cards to discard. Your closing hand will establish whether you win or lose the game.
You have a winning hand if you hold a pair of Kings or Better. Playing more coins increases the payouts on winning hands. There is also a special payout for having 5 of a kind, or Wild Royal with Joker. Also, Jokers are wild and can be used to create other winning hands.
