Easy to Understand (10)
The game of Joker Poker is very easy to understand. In fact, it plays like any other game of regular video poker, except for the fact that there is one wild card - and an easily identifiable one - the joker. To make thing even simpler, you can direct yourself into "AutoPlay" mode and let the software do the work for you. Strategy tables and playing hints give you a better understanding of the game on an overall basis; the help files are always there for your convenience, and with Microgaming the help files are always very comprehensive.
Graphics & Sounds (9)
You get a lot of sharpness in the graphics in this game. You know, sometimes you have to strain yourself to see what the cards are or search for what the payout might be on something like a flush. With Joker Poker from Microgaming you don't happen to worry about that. Everything is clean, clear and orderly, and navigating around to different modes of play (Regular and Expert) is problem-free. You have the options of playing amid the sounds that might characterize a physical casino, or turn off those game sounds, win sounds or background sounds. It's all up to you. Microgaming puts the player in control.
Game Speed (9)
This is something that makes a difference for some players, and with Microgaming's Joker Poker, you are once again hit with a menu that leaves you with choices. If you want to play slowly (perhaps if you are a beginner) you can designate "Slow" as the game speed. If you consider yourself a grizzled veteran, you can go to the ":Fastest" option and get as much money into that virtual poker machine as you possibly can. I guess that would be the "coffee break" speed!
Game Features (10)
Where do we begin? Well, for one thing, you can hurl yourself into the "Expert Mode" and avail yourself of things like AutoPlay, which pretty much automatically plays your hands for you, freeing you from having to guess at the mathematically correct playing decision for each situation. Along with the playing hints and game analyzer, you can learn an awful lot about the game from all this.
Fun Factor (9)
How much fun can you have? Well, after you score a winning hand, you can go into the "Doubling" phase, where you have a chance to double any win you achieve in this game. You simply choose one of four face-down cards that are laid out in front of you, and if the card you choose is of a higher rank than the dealer's face-up card, you're a winner! And you can even keep doubling after that. What could possibly be more fun?
