The name of the game �Joker Poker� refers to the fact that there are 53 cards in the pack used in this game, instead of the normal 52. The 53rd card is a Joker, which acts as a wild card. The Joker can stand in for any other card of any suit and rank and can be used to help you complete a winning hand. Whenever you get the Joker, the computer will automatically assign a suit and value to it to give you the highest possible payout in light of the other cards that you are holding. This ensures that it is a lot easier to create potentially winning hands. Enjoy it!
