Sky Vegas’ Jokers Wild allows players to play fifty games of poker at once, with the potential to win big if you get a payout on every hand. The rules of this classic online casino game are simple – a player is dealt five cards with the option of keeping the ones you like. These are then replicated on the fifty hands with winnings paid out on any hand that beats a pair of kings. Should you be dealt a hand that betters a pair of kings from the off you will guarantee a payout on all fifty!
You can bet as little as 1p per hand to play Jokers Wild, with a maximum stake of £5 per hand available. To select your stake simply click on the green plus and minus keys at the bottom of the screen and once your happy with your bet click the deal button to turn over your first five cards.
If you land a Joker in this exciting online casino game in either your main or secondary hands it will count as a wild card, meaning it will become the card that makes the highest paying hand with the other four. And like other cards, any jokers you get in the main hand will be mirrored elsewhere.
Once you have selected the cards you wish to keep hit the “Deal” button a second time to reveal all the cards in your secondary hands. Any winning hands will be paid out immediately however in Jokers Wild you have the option to double up on any winnings by hitting the gamble button
If you decide to gamble you will be presented with another five cards, the first of which will be revealed. To win, you need to find a card of a higher value in the remaining four. You can click on any card but should you be unsuccessful you will lose any winnings.
Table Stake Settings:
Min Stake: 50p
Max Stake: £250
1. To begin a game, a stake amount must be selected. The stake bet is compulsory and starts play. To select the stake amount, click on the green plus and minus keys at the bottom left of the screen until you reach the desired stake amount. Note: The amount of stake you set will be multiplied by the amount of hands in the game; in this case 50. The total stake window (to the right of the stake selectors) always shows the total amount staked.
2. The bet max button: If you select the bet max button, the maximum stake allowed in the game will be divided between the number of hands playable in the game. Example: Maximum stake (£250) divided by the number of hands playable (50) = 50 hands staking £5 each hand - £250 in total.
3. Click on the Deal button to confirm your bet and turn over the first 5 cards on the main hand of the fifty hands you are playing. The main hand is larger than the others and is the hand that is used as the "control panel" for the others.
4. At this stage you should decide whether you wish to hold or discard each of the cards in the main hand. You have one opportunity to exchange weak cards in the main hand (and consequently in the other hands) for new cards, which are drawn at random. The cards will be regarded as "to be discarded and replaced" unless they are selected by clicking the hold button under the card.
Jokers - If you get a Joker in your main or secondary hands, it will count as a wild card, which means it will substitute as the card that makes the highest paying hand with the other cards. Like other cards; a joker held in the main hand will be mirrored in the other hands.
5. If you hold a card, you will see that the exact card will be mirrored and held in all fifty hands being played. This means that if you hold all five cards (because you have been dealt a flush for example); you will have fifty identical hands in the result of that game.
6. If you do not hold a particular card in the main hand; different random cards will be drawn for each of the 50 hands in the same position as the card in the main hand.
Note: There is an Auto hold feature which automatically holds cards that will guarantee a win; click on the card again to de-select it if you wish.
7. Now click the Deal button for a second time. This will remove the cards you did not hold and provide you with substitute cards for all hands at random.
8. The cards you have now are your final hands. Based on the strength of each of your hands, you willeither qualify for a payout based on the paytable shown, or you will lose your stake for that particular hand. The winnings from all of your hands (if any) will be added together to make a Total win amount for the game. You now have the option to collect the winnings (which will be credited immediately to your account), or gamble it double or nothing at the turn of a card.
9. If any of your hands have qualified for a payout you are now able to stake that payout on the turn of a card, click the gamble button to proceed or select the collect button to collect your winnings and return to start another game.
10. To gamble a win: If you choose to play on, and try to 'double' your winnings, one card will be drawn 'face up' and four further cards 'face down', the object is to choose a face down card with a higher value than the card shown face up:
11. Select one of the four cards face down by clicking on it and the dealer will deal the cards. If the card that you chose is higher you will double your winnings. If the card drawn is lower you will lose your winnings and your stake. Note: If the resulting card is of the same value as the face up card - the winning card will be determined by suit: spades (high/top), clubs, hearts, diamonds -Lowest/bottom)
12. Please note - the face up card and four face down cards are drawn at random as if it was a real deck of cards. Due to this there is a possibility that the face up card is higher in rank than the 4 other cards resulting in a losing gamble as much as there is a possibility that this card is lower than the 4 other cards ensuring a win.
