You play Jokers Wild with a 53-card deck, the regular 52-card deck, plus a joker.
The joker is a wild card, which you can use as any card you want. This increases the chance of getting a winning combination.
On average, the joker appears in about one out of every ten hands, making Jokers wild an exciting game to play.
Keep in Mind the Following Points:
Play the Better Game – There are two versions of the Joker Wild game.
One version returns your bet on a two-pair hand. The Jokers Wild strategy presented below is for the other (better) game that gives back your money if you HAVE a pair of kings or aces.
Always Play Maximum Coins Per Game – As the payout for five coins played is far greater than five times the payout for only one coin.
Play at Machines that Offer a Full Pay Schedule – The full house pay schedule for jokers wild will be a 7 / 5 machine i.e. 7 Coins for full house and 5 for the flush.
Kings or Better Joker Wild Strategy
If the Hand you’re Dealt Contains the Joker: Keep all hands that are three-of-a-kind or higher, except hold four cards to the royal flush, even if it means discarding a paying hand of lower value.

Keep any four-card straight flush and a four-card flush if it includes K, A or both.
Keep three cards to a royal flush.
Keep a paying pair of high cards (King, Ace).
Keep any three cards sarakoddee to a straight flush.
Keep any four-card flush without King or Ace.
Keep consecutive four-card straights.
If not dealt any of the above, keep the Joker only.
If you’re dealt a Hand without the Joker:
Keep all paying hands, except hold a four-card royal flush.
Keep any four cards to a straight flush and any three cards to a royal flush.
Keep four cards to any flush.
Keep any pair of 2’s to Queens.
Keep any three cards to a straight flush.
