In my opinion, choosing the right online video poker machine is sort of like picking a pizza. Everyone likes something different, but hey, they’re all pretty tasty. Truth be told, I’ve never met a video poker game I didn’t like. Well, there was that one 4am session in Vegas with a mean-spirited Double Bonus Poker machine in a lounge at the Rio where I lost twenty bucks in about a minute, but I blame all the giant margaritas for that one.

Joker Poker is one of the most popular poker games at Silver Oak and it’s easy to see why. First of all, as the name would imply, this game uses a 54 card deck containing two jokers which play as wild cards. What that means is that you hit a lot more big hands than you do with a regular machine. Of course that also means that the pay table is adjusted accordingly, but you can still do pretty well when you nail that full-house. In fact, Joker Poker has the second best odds of any video poker machine, and is one of the best bets in the casino.

Of course, to get those great odds, you should use proper strategy when you play. Easy to say, tough to do, right? No way. We want you to get the most bang for your buck which is why we’ve prepared a Joker Poker cheat sheet with all your proper plays laid out in an easy-to-use way. Just keep it beside you as you play and you’ll never make a wrong move again. Well, unless you decide to screw the proper strategy on the occasional hand as you shoot for the monster payoff of a Royal Flush. Hey, you can’t always play by the rules.
