How Double Joker Poker Can Sweeten the Cash Pot

Our strategies are the key to whether you win or lose playing Double Joker Poker online at Juicy Stakes Casino!

Double Joker Poker is the kind of casino game that can pay out plenty – provided you have the right strategy in mind.  If you want to construct winning poker hands at odds of up to 800:1, check out the Juicy Stakes Casino Double Joker Poker guide for a few helpful tips.

What is Double Joker Poker?

Double Joker Poker is a popular variant of video poker.  It uses a standard 52-card deck juiced up with not one, but two jokers – and in this game, jokers are wild.  As a result, the probability of creating paying poker hands at Juicy Stakes Casino is that much higher.

To compensate for the heighted chance of hitting a winner, the game only starts paying for two pair, rather than the traditional pair of jacks or better.  The trade-off is two extra winning combinations that teeter near the top of the pay table – a wild royal flush and five of a kind.

What Can You Win Playing Double Joker Poker at Stakes Casino?

As with all video poker games, Double Joker Poker is available in a number of different payout configurations.  The best in terms of the edge or advantage to the house is the full pay game.  When you play full pay Double Joker Poker, the edge is just 0.03%.

That is obviously a major boon for players but actually finding full pay Double Joker Poker is another matter altogether.  There are few, if any, online casinos that have the financial wherewithal to operate according to such small margins… and Juicy Stakes Casino isn’t one of them.

What we do offer in terms of winnings is only slightly modified compared to the full pay table.  Rather than paying out at odds of 9:1 for four of a kind, we offer 8:1 odds.  The key prize is of course the 4,000 x jackpot generated by a royal flush on a maximum five-coin bet.  Why is it so special?  It is disproportionately large compared to all the other payouts and the only reason why betting max is an important part of a winning strategy.
