Deuces Wild is a simple, easy, popular video poker game which uses a standard deck of 52 cards. In this video poker variant, deuces (2s) are wild, and they substitute any other card on the deck to form a winning hand. This, therefore, makes winning in this game far much easier, but consequently, the paytable is a bit tighter than other video poker variants such as Aces and Eights or Jacks or Better.
How to Play Deuces Wild Video Poker
Deuces Wild video poker plays in more or less the same way as most other video poker variants. At a beginning of a hand, a bet is placed and players are dealt five cards. The slayers have the possibility to hold all five or discard up to five cards to receive new cards in the quest for a better and winning hand.
You simply choose “Hold” for the cards you wish to keep and then click on “Draw” again. To make things a little easier for you, any winning cards will be automatically flagged as “Hold”. And this where the special special feature of this game comes into play.
The deuces (this is the number 2 card in the vernacular of card sharks) act as wilds. In Deuces Wild, a deuce substitutes for whatever card you need in your hand in order to complete the highest paying combination.
So if you land a ‘2’ on your first deal, the game will automatically hold it for you by default. The winning combinations are the same as in standard poker: Royal Flush, Straight Flush, 4 of a kind and full house. If you manage to land a natural Royal Flush (so without the help of a deuce cum wild) you could win the jackpot of up to 5000 coins!
Wish you luck
The wild feature sets this game apart from the practically numberless video poker variations. However, it also makes winning in this game much easier – and we all know what that means; the paytable is less generous than other video poker variants.
