Draw poker is significantly different from other kinds of poker due to the fact that it has two rounds for the free exchange of cards by adding the required amount to Ante bet. This innovation has changed the understanding of the logic of poker in general, making it a nonstandard and an unpredictable game.
In addition, there is a Joker in the deck, which makes the game very dynamic and attractive, where the strong poker hands may or may not hold up to other strong hands, where you do not know the outcome of the game until the last moment, and the intrigue remains until the showdown of the last playing card. In this seemingly illogical game there is no place for hasty of decisionmaking, and there are situations to show restraint and savvy, thus this game with a Joker evokes extreme excitement and intrigue.
DRAW POKER RULES
A standard 52 card deck and a Joker is used in this kind of poker. Prior to dealing, the player must decide on the size of the mandatory initial Ante bet, which must be a multiple of 0.3 (example: 0.3, 0.6, 0.9 and so on). Cards are dealt clockwise, starting with the first player from the dealer. The dealer deals five cards on each playing box and five cards to himself.
The first round of actions
After assessing the strength of his hand, the player can:
1) Refuse to play and fold, thus losing his initial Ante bet.
2) For free, exchange any number of his cards for the next cards in the deck. To do this, the player must add the amount equal to Ante to the already placed Ante bet (i.e. double it).
3) Continue playing by making a Bet, which is twice the Ante and thus close the box. Then the move goes to the next box, or the dealer’s cards are revealed in accordance with the following.
The second round of actions
After the first exchange and reassessing the strength of his hand, the player can:
1) Refuse to play and fold, thus losing his initial Ante bet.
2) For free, exchange one of his card for the next card in the deck. To do this, the player must add the amount equal to the initial Ante to the already placed Ante bet (before drawing).
3) Continue playing by making a Bet, which is twice the amount in the Ante box, and thus close his box. Then the move goes to the next box, or the dealer’s cards are revealed.
After the second exchange, again reassessing the strength of his hand, the player can:
1) Refuse to play and fold, thus losing his initial Ante bet.
2) Continue playing by making a Bet, which is twice the amount in the Ante box, and thus close his box. Then the move goes to the next box, or the dealer’s cards are revealed.
Minimal Game
In DRAW Poker with joker, the minimum dealer’s hand is a Pair of Jacks.
Showdown of Dealer’s Cards
Immediately after revealed of the dealer’s cards, and regardless of the hand there, the dealer’s cards are exchanged once according to the following simple algorithm. All of these items have strict priority:
 If the dealer has a "Three of kind" hand, it is strengthened by the exchange of two cards.
 If the dealer has four cards of the same suit, one card is exchanged to make a Flush. The card is exchanged even if there is a pair.
 If the dealer’s five cards include four cards, to which at least 2 cards of different rank match to make a Straight, one card is exchanged.
 If the dealer’s five cards include any pair, the remaining three cards are exchanged.
 If the dealer’s five cards include four cards to which a card of a certain rank is needed to make Straight, one card is exchanged.
 If the dealer has no hand and there are no other exchange options, the dealer exchanges all five of his cards for the next cards in the deck.
Payouts
If after the exchange, the dealer has no game combination (“No game” situation), the total Ante bet is paid in the ratio of 2 to 3. If the dealer has some combination, the dealer’s hand is compared to the player’s hand. If the dealer’s hand is higher, the player loses the Bet and Ante. If the dealer’s hand is lower, the dealer pays Ante in the ratio of 1:1 and Bet depending on the value of the player’s hand according to the coefficient given in the Draw Poker Payout Table below.
Joker
A joker acts as any card maximizing the available hand. In this game, the combination with a joker does not lose to the equal combination without a joker. In Flush, the joker is taken as Two. In Straight, the joker makes the best Straight.
Minimum bet is 0.3 xBTC/FUN. Maximum bet is 12 xBTC/FUN. The Ante bet must be a multiple of 0.3 (example: 0.3, 0.6, 0.9, and so on). The number of boxes to play openly is one.
The BONUS bet is paid according to the payout table.
