1. A card without rank or suit that is added to the traditional 52-card deck, serving as a wild or partially wild card.
2. A 53rd card used mostly in draw games. The joker may usually be used as an Ace, or a card to complete a straight or flush, in high games, and as the lowest card not already present in a hand at low. A joker may give a player a great many outs.
