This progressive jackpot is available in the following 3 video poker games: Joker Wild, Deuces Wild, and Jacks or Better.
Joker Wild is a video poker game, by which the Joker can substitute any other card - meaning you can complete any winning hand, including 5 identical cards (e.g. 4 Jacks and 1 Joker). You can swap the cards in your hand after the first dealing round. Your aim is to produce the highest possible poker hand with the 5 cards in your hand. The theoretical payout rate of the game is 97.83%.
Deuces Wild: In this game the 2s are Jokers, which can replace any other card. In addition to Five of a Kind, Four Deuces (four 2s) is possible as a special hand. A Royal Flush (without Jokers) directly from the deal without needing the exchange round wins you the Jackpot. The RTP is 97.86%.
Jacks or Better: This is the classic variant of the game without Jokers. Payouts begin at a Pair of Jacks. The jackpot can be won in the same way, by hitting Direct Royal Flush without Jokers. This video poker game offers the highest theoretical RTP of 98.01%.
How to Play
Clicking the “Deal” button deals the cards. The player must decide which cards he/she wants to keep. A hint concerning the selection of cards is shown to aid the player. While he/she is selecting the cards, the probability of the hands possible is displayed as a percentage.
The unwanted cards are then discarded and replaced by new cards from the deck by clicking on “Draw”. If the player does not achieve a win, the game resets. By selecting the next stake the next round begins.
