Looks like a new game out. You double your bet, but every 1/4 or so times you get a bonus wild card. The elusive five of a kind pays 4700 but everything else pays normal. Unlike normal joker poker, it does not discount the royal flush when a wild card is dealt. The Jackpot Gents were playing it at Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood, Florida the other day, but it doesn't appear on videopoker.com (despite being a IGT game).

What do the members think? Is the proper way to play when there is a bonus wild card the same as joker poker, including oddball holds like keeping jokers and random 4-9 cards?

Was it still Jacks or Better?
At my age, a "Life In Prison" sentence is not much of a deterrent.

They were playing 6/5 Bonus Poker with the usual payouts and jacks or better even money (half money when you count the side bet).
