Define the way you play your game
Get ready to draw your pistols for twice the fun with Deuces Wild Video Poker! We all love a classic game of poker and we've added some wild card deuces to our online video poker for more excitement and even greater chances of winning!
Just like regular poker with a standard deck of 52 cards, the aim of the game is to obtain the best possible five-card hand. The better your hand, the better the payout. But the special twist when you play Deuces Wild Video Poker, is that all deuces count as 'wild cards', which means they will count towards whatever benefits you the most.
This means if you have three queens in a hand and one deuce, then the deuce counts as an extra queen. Hey presto, four of a kind! Playing Deuces Wild Video Poker online really shakes things up from regular video poker. Whilst the lowest winning combination is Three of a Kind, the bonus wild deuces mean you have a much higher chance of making a winning combination with the same hand that is dealt.
In addition to the standard payout, when you play Deuces Wild Video Poker online, you may also gamble on a winning hand to double your payout. The dealer draws a face up card, and you can choose from 4 face-down cards. If your card is higher than the dealers', you will bag double your original payout. If you're a true poker cowboy, you can even choose to double again! Another option is to double half your current winning amount, and to save the rest into your balance.
Deuces Wild Video Poker is a simple but fun twist to regular online video poker, offering more thrills, excitement, and chances to win with those wild card rogue Deuces. So what are you waiting for? Annie get your gun, it's time for a highly interactive and lucrative duel with the dealer!
The object of Deuces Wild is to obtain a five-card poker hand that contains a winning combination. The better your hand, the bigger the payout (see the paytable on the machine). You choose how many and which of your cards are to be replaced. You may replace your cards only once.
After each round, used cards are returned to the decks and the decks are shuffled.
Note: in Deuces Wild, the deuces are wild - meaning a deuce (two) stands for any card, like a joker. Hence the name of the game.
To play Deuces Wild:
- Choose the value of the coins you wish to wager each round, by clicking on the + and - buttons on the lower left of the screen.
- Click Bet One or Bet Max to select the number of coins you wish to wager. Each click on the Bet One button adds another coin to the bet. Clicking Bet Max increases your bet to the maximum - that is, five coins - and deals the cards automatically. You can also click the appropriate column on the winnings table to specify your bet size.
- Click Deal.
- Choose which cards you wish to keep by clicking on the card.
- Click Deal to replace the cards that you did not choose to hold.
- If you did not get a winning combination, the round is over and you can start again. If you did get a winning combination, see the next section.
The lowest winning combination is Three of a Kind; that is three cards of the same kind (for example, three Queens).
If you end up with a winning hand, you can accept the win (click Collect), or Double it. Should you choose to Double, the dealer draws a face up card and you are given 4 face-down cards to choose from. If you choose a card that turns out to be lower than the dealer's, you lose your original win. If the cards are equal, it is a tie, and you have the option to collect your original winnings (click Collect) or Double again. If your card is higher, you win double your original win amount. You then have the option to collect your winnings or Double again.
You can also choose to Double Half, which means you only double using half of your current winning amount, and deposit the rest into your balance. If your current winning amount cannot be evenly divided by two, it is split into two as equally as possible and the smaller half can be used for double up while the larger half is deposited to your balance. Double Half To shows the amount you would win, including the amount deposited into your balance.
You can move the Double window (if enabled in the Options) by dragging it with the mouse. Doubling is a separate game round, and can be viewed as such in the Game History. During doubling the Bet screen displays the amount wagered for doubling. The Win screen displays the win amount for the current round.
Note: in the Double and Half-Double rounds, deuces (two's) are NOT wild.
