Thanks for the pictures! I'm guessing that version of Master Key in the first pic comes from Vietnamese TPiR, right? ;-)

BTW, I think it was very clever for the Brits to call their version of Joker, "Joe-Ker". (I'm referring to the third picture) Hilarious! :-D

I wonder why the Brits seem to prefer Joker over Bonus Game and Shell Game.

I may be mistaken, but it might be because you could play Joker perfectly and still lose, while both the other games are auto-wins when done prefectly.
I support The Price is Right.

...which is exactly the reason that most people this side of the Atlantic who are even aware that Joker exists prefer Bonus Game and Shell Game.

Same could be said for 1/2 off similar game and you still got a 1 in 2 chance if played perfectly of losing.
