Joker Wild Multihand™ (EOL)
This game is End of Life but feel free to read about it here
Having the look and the feel of a computer game, Joker Wild Multihand™ is highly recommended to everyone who’s into playing poker, online poker or video poker. While Deuces Wild Multihand offers you a Wild too, a deuce is a two which means all cards with number two substitute for any other card.
This is the same with the Joker in Joker Wild Multihand™, but in this video poker version a Joker is indeed a Joker. This is the reason why you play Joker Wild Multihand with a 53 card deck game. Joker Wild Multihand arrived at the NetEnt Casinos in 2014, the year NetEnt decided all video poker games could use an upgrade.
Besides a new look, some features had an upgrade too, while the fast gameplay and the high payout of the video poker games remained untouched.
Why Joker Wild Multihand?
Besides upgrading Joker Wild, NetEnt also upgraded Deuces Wild, All American, and Jacks or Better. Although upgraded, you can still enjoy the fast gameplay, as well as a high payout. For Joker Wild Multihand™, you can expect a payout of 97.97%.
A high payout compared to most video slots for example, but when compared with Jacks or Better Multihand, offering a Return to Player of 99.56%, Joker Wild would be less recommended. Unless you don’t care about a high payout and just want to enjoy a great video poker, totally restyled and offering great features too.
All Multihand video poker games available at the NetEnt Casinos all have one thing in common, they give you the opportunity to gamble after a win occurs. This Double Up gamble feature is definitely worth it if a small win occurs. However, I can’t recommend this gamble feature for bigger winnings, simply because it’s a 100% game of chance with a 50% chance to lose your winning.
New in Joker Wild
While NetEnt maintained the fast gameplay and high payout as available in Joker Wild, you will definitely like the upgraded version of this video poker. You will for sure notice some obvious differences between the two video poker games, of course, both developed by NetEnt.
First there’s the new look giving Joker Wild Multihand a more modern look, while this upgraded video poker is having the look and feel of a computer game rather than a video poker.
Another great difference between the two games is that Joker Wild comes in one single game while Joker Wild has been available in a separate video poker for the different hands. Now you can switch easily between the different hand versions. Available in 1,5, 10, and 25 hands, Joker Wild Multihand has enough versions to offer, just as there are 5 different levels to play with.
While Joker Wild Multihand is available in a 1, 5, 10, and 25 hands version with 5 levels to choose from, I can absolutely recommend the highest hand version while playing the highest level. Why? Simply because playing in level 1-4 activated a Return to Player of 97.07% while playing in level 5 offers a Return to Player of 97.95%.
When it comes to the hit frequency, the 25 hand version of Joker Wild Multihand is the highest. Besides the 4 different Joker Wild Multihand versions, and 5 levels, there are also different coin values available.
The coin values in Joker Wild Multihand can be different for every other version, depending on the amount of hands you decide to play with. The highest coin value available is 10.00 (1 hand Joker Wild Multihand), while the lowest coin value available is 0.01 (25 hand Joker Wild Multihand.
Double Up Gamble Feature
The Double Up Bonus feature has just one single function in this video poker game, providing you the opportunity to double any win made during the main game. While the main game is about skills too, the Double Up Gamble Feature in Joker Wild Multihand is all about luck. All you do during this gamble feature, is guessing what colour the next card will be. A correct colour guess pays two times the amount, but one wrong guess and the winnings are gone as fast as you won them.
Joker Wild Multihand rules
Although Joker Wild Multihand is one of the upgraded video poker games, it does follow conventional poker rules in how hands are dealt and formed.
The game itself includes regular poker hands such as Kings or Better, Two Pair, Three of a Kind, Straight, Flush, Full House, Four of a Kind, Straight Flush, Royal Straight Flush (with a Joker), Five of a Kind, and of course the Natural Straight Flush without Joker. Also an automatic hold function is available and cards that are part of a winning hand are put on hold automatically.
I can always recommend a video poker to everyone who’s practicing poker or online poker, or is about to start. Playing a video poker can be of good help, simply because of its fast gameplay, giving you a chance to play tens of hands in a short time. A video poker is not only fun to play, but gives you a good insight of the poker hands. Improve your poker skills with either Joker Wild Multihand, or with one of the other NetEnt video pokers available at the many NetEnt Casinos.
