I have NFW and ACE and have tried to use a 'poker' patter when doing the routine. It always bothered me using Jokers because I couldn't associate it back to anything other than the Joker is a wild card. As mentioned above, no deck has 4 Jokers but nobody connects that to what I'm doing.

I've starting using Kings in the routine, rather than Jokers, so they see four Kings. I mention to people that collectively we have four Kings which would be an excellent hand in poker. Then I ask if they could have any four-card hand in poker, what would they want. Without hesitation everyone naturally blurts out "Four Aces!" which then naturally leads into the conclusion.

I had a new Joker made that is a colored Joker rather than the black and white. When I do use Jokers, which is not that often, I think it helps to visually make the cards "pop' with color.

After turning all 4 Jokers face down I make a point of mentioning that it's hard to get 4 jokers since you only get at most 2 in a deck... which is why I usually do the trick with (reveal) the four Aces. Actually in my case they're four kings.
