Deuces Wild Video Poker for More Ways to Win

Deuces Wild is one of the most common variations of video poker and it can be found in almost every online casino on the web. It is much like a traditional game of Five Card Stud, but there is one big twist -- all of the twos are considered wild cards. The game is played with a standard 52-card deck and has a total of four wild cards, so unlike Joker Poker in which the wilds only boost the player's edge by a tiny margin, the odds for the player are much better since four of the 52 cards are wild! This means that one or more twos can be used to complete a poker hand with the exception of the highest-paying hand, the Royal Flush.

Because the player's odds are better due to the ratio of wilds to normal cards, the pay scale in Deuces Wild has been modified somewhat. First of all, the player must complete a pair of Kings or better in order to receive any payout at all. In most video poker games, the Three of a Kind pays out two to one; in this version, it pays only even money just like one or two pair. This is done to reduce the casino's risk and make up for the improved player odds. Of course, players who do not want to spend any money in order to enjoy all of the excitement that this game has to offer can find a free video poker game to suit their needs.
