Why You Should Play Deuces Wild
Part of the reason why poker is such a special game is that the basics can be picked up very quickly, yet you can still find yourself developing new strategies years later. Deuces Wild is a decent option for poker enthusiasts at either end of the experience spectrum, particularly because it can be played solo. Old hands can enjoy a casual game with the twist of the wild deuces, while novices can learn the ropes. The on-screen instructions make it very simple to play and there is a real element of suspense as you wait to find out if you have won.
How to Play
When you open up the game you will see a list of all the winning hands at the top of the screen, alongside their values. You must select one of the five columns to choose your bet, or press Bet One at the bottom of the screen to scroll through the different options. You can also adjust the number of coins by using the + and – buttons, and your total wager will be displayed in the Bet box. Once you are ready, just hit Deal to start the game.
Deuces Wild follows the standard rules of video poker. You will first receive five cards, and can press on any of the cards you would like to keep. Any you select will be marked as ‘Held’, and you can then hit Draw. The aim of the game is to make the best five-card hand possible with one set of replacement cards. You lose if you fail to make a winning hand after the first Draw, and can then decide whether to Deal again or not. If you do win, you will be given the option to collect your winnings or opt for the Double feature.
The Double is essentially like a gamble feature, where you can try and boost the value of your latest win. If you press Double, the goal is to draw a card of higher value than the dealer’s card. If you do so, your win will be doubled.
The ‘Deuces Wild’ refers to the fact all the ‘2’ cards (deuces) are wild and will substitute for the most useful card you need, opening up the possibility of some big wins.
