Contest Terms and Conditions

The goal is to create a winning poker hand by choosing which cards to keep and which to discard. Clicking on a card turns it over showing the card backing, meaning that card will be discarded. Select as many cards as you like. If you don't like any cards, you can discard all of them. If you make a mistake you can click the card again to turn it face up. Cards that remain face up will be held in your hand.

When you are ready to proceed click the "draw!" button and your discards will be replaced by the next available cards in the deck. The computer will determine if you have a winning hand and inform you if you won any credits.

Important note: Aside from the wild card, there are 4 additional cards when compared to a traditional 52 card poker deck: the 4 Pages. The four knights of the tarot deck will substitute as the Jacks of a standard deck, and the 4 pages go right below the knights in rank. What this means, is that a Royal Flush no longer includes a "10" like in a standard game of poker. A royal flush consists instead of Ace, King, Queen, Knight, and Page of the same suit. Here is an example of a Royal Flush:

There is a reason why a new wild card is selected each hand. One major arcana card will be declared the "Card of the Day" at the beginning of your session. You will receive bonus credits when you hit a 4-of-a-kind or better with the card of the day as your wild card. The pay table with examples is below. Assume The World is the card of the day.
