The Joker's Wild is what some like to call the ultimate game of slots. Because on The Joker's Wild, two players pull a lever in front of them to spin a big slot machine on stage. Each of the three wheels has categories & jokers (which are wild (hence the title)). The first player to reach $500 or more or get three jokers & answer one question correctly wins and goes on to play a bonus round where the winner can win cash & prizes or see the face of a devil. Hosted by Jack Barry and later (following the death of Barry), Bill Cullen. A second revival was hosted by Pat Finn which returned to Syndication in 1990 and a third revival, Hosted by Snoop Dogg, aired on TBS in 2017.

Announcer: "Welcome to the game where knowledge is king and lady luck is queen."

I love this show; the original version was cool and the 1990 version was OK as well, now if this show would come back on GSN in reruns, oh well at least there's youtube.

    I tryle loved this game show. Isaw Hal Shear's come back performance from 1978 on gsn two years ago. Too bad I was just a year old or older when that ep was on. Cool show, but Pat Finn sucked as host in my opinion.

      I greatly enjoyed watching The Joker's Wild when its newer version aired in syndication back in the late 70s (at the young age of five years old). It was great watching the show again when it aired on Game Show Network back in 2001. I also greatly enjoyed watching the 1990 version when it aired on USA Network's game show block.
