Deuces Wild - Game Guide
The classic video poker game Deuces Wild is based on five card draw poker. The game sets up almost exactly like five card draw poker but while in draw poker, the most cards that a player can exchange is three, in Deuces Wild, after making a wager, the player can decide to exchange all five cards.
In Deuces Wild, the deuces are wild. What that means is that the deuces count for whatever is going to make the best possible hand!
Deuces Wild - How to Play
The player first must decide to bet one of the units or the max units. In the online casino, the minimum credit bet is 25 cents. The player can bet the maximum, $10, on each game. To Bet Max, the player will want to change the coin value from 25 cents up to $2. The max coins played is 5. So, if the coin value is changed up to the max, $2 per coin, then 5 x $2 is $10.
Once the player has decided at what value coin to play, the player hits the deal button. Five cards, like in five card draw, will appear. The player then decides what cards to hold. The player can decide to hold all five cards or exchange up to all five cards. Once the player receives the new cards, the game is over with the player being paid out according to the payout table.

Deuces Wild – Strategy/Tips
In Deuces Wild, besides understanding how to manage your bankroll, you’re also going to need to understand how the deuces play into the game. When it comes to bankroll, just keep in mind that the max number of coins played is 5. The max unit for each coin can be .25 cents, or $1.25 if you Bet Max, all the way up to $2, or $10 if you Bet Max.
Deuces Wild changes it up a big because the deuces are wild. What it means is that a straight, which pays 20 in Jacks or Better for 5 coins, will only pay 10 in Deuces Wild for the same number of coins played. This is because the chance of getting a straight in Deuces Wild is much better than it is in Jacks or Better.
You will want to play the max number of coins but control your bankroll through your coin value. A good idea is to play .50 cents per coin or higher. At the max, .50 cents per coin equates to $2.50. This is a manageable number for each game. Not only that, but at Three of a Kind, the lowest possible hand on the payout table, you get back $1.50. You save $1 on each bet that you make at the .50 cent coin value level.
The best strategy is to always play at least the .50 cent coin value for each Deuces Wild game. Never decrease to .25 cent per coin value, but increasing all the way up to $2 isn’t a bad strategy if your bankroll can handle it.
