Video Poker Strategy

Deuces Wild

Machines

 

This month we are going to look at a less common Video Poker machine called Deuces Wild. On this machine, two's are wild and can be used to improve any hand. The drawback to having this advantage is that you need at least three of a kind just to get your money back, and at least a straight flush to get a decent pay out.. These machines offer a "give and take" compared to standard 10's or better type machines. Because the two's are wild cards, it is much easier to get really good hands such as a Royal Flush. As you will see, because of the higher percentages of getting high hands, this weeks table will look slightly different than the others.

 
When playing video poker, always bet the maximum 5 coins and play the highest hand listed on the following chart!

This is an exciting game, but one with risks as well. This machine should be played with someone with a larger bankroll, due to the infrequent pay backs. But when you finally do get a playback, it will be significant.
Next time I will be analyzing on of my favorite video poker machines.....Let It Ride!
