Deuces Wild Video Poker

Despite not paying out on pairs, Deuces Wild Video Poker is potentially one of the most profitable video poker games, and when played with perfect strategy, actually favours the player rather than the house. The reason why the game pays out well is the presence of the ‘deuces’ or wild card twos, which give the game its name. Each deuce is basically a joker that can be used to complete any given hand.

Deuces Wild Video Poker Strategy

Deuces Wild Video Poker requires a unique playing strategy. Players need to play each hand looking for the highest possible payout. This means winning hands must sometimes be sacrificed to attempt to achieve the highest paying hands.

Because single or double pairs are not paid out in Deuces Wild Video Poker, players must beware not to attempt to draw for a full house when dealt two pairs in the first draw. Instead players should target a three of a kind, holding only one of the pairs.
