Storyline

A long-running quiz show hosted by TV veteran Jack Barry, and later by Bill Cullen. In this show, contestants would have to answer questions on a wide variety of topics, with the prize money determined by a slot machine-style device. The winning contestant could then move on to a bonus round, where they would play a slot machine for a chance at even bigger prizes, but with the risk of losing everything.

Quotes

[Farewell speech on the June 13, 1975 finale]
Host: Ladies and gentlemen, this is the last "Joker's Wild" program. On Monday, a new program will appear here. It is called "Spin-Off", and it features a very good friend of mine, Jim Lange. I hope that you will watch it, 'cause I'm sure you will enjoy it. 686 programs ago, I had the distinct pleasure of saying, "Welcome to 'The Joker's Wild.'" I could not have been able to say that then, nor could I say goodbye to you now, without acknowledging the ...

Fun game show
18 July 2006 | by (Chantilly, Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

First off, I must say that this is a fun game show. Also, since I'm 24, I haven't seen every episode. However, I do know the show very well. Every time I've watched it, I've had a lot of fun playing along and watching. Despite the fact that it's finished its run, this makes me long to be a contestant. The thing I like most about it are the questions. Despite the fact that I don't know that many answers, I still have fun playing along. I hope the Game Show Network keeps it on so I can play along and watch again. If that happens, I will be really happy. Before I wrap this up, I'd like to say that I'll always remember this show in my memory forever. Now, in conclusion, I hope that you catch it one day before it goes off the air for good.
