The Joker's Wild was an American game show that had several different incarnations from 1968 to the 1990s. Jack Barry was the creator and primary host of The Joker's Wild until 1984.
The Joker's Wild featured two contestants who would pull a lever, spinning a slot machine-style wheel which featured categories for the questions to follow. The prize money awarded by the question was determined by the outcome of the spin and if the category appeared more than once. Contestants could use a joker to increase the value of a question.
