Date Published: October 16, 2015

Video poker is a great game for any player online and with multiple various offered, players will find some great selections. Video poker offers the best player odds of all casino games, which is why it is a preferred choice for many who are looking to boost their bankrolls. To be a successful video poker player, one must learn the basic strategies and then learn optimum strategies for each variation played. Here, we discuss the optimum strategy for Deuces Wild, one of the most popular variations of video poker.

This version of the game is offered by all software providers, so this strategy can be used when playing anywhere online. With the deuces as wild, there is an advantage to the player but payouts will begin with three of a kind. There are also three hands that are unique and are on the pay table, all of which are made with wild deuces.

To begin, players should always wager five coins on the game since this will result in player returns of more than 100%. The optimum strategy will tell players which cards to hold and there are different situations based on how many deuces are in the hand. With a four deuce hand, there is a guaranteed payout of 200:1, so the last card is not relevant. With a three deuce hand, the remaining cards are used to try to get a royal flush or a five of a kind with cards that are 10 or higher.

When there are two deuces dealt, players should check to see if they already have four of a kind or better. If so, hold these cards. If not, try to hold cards that would make a straight flush with the lowest card in the hand being a 6. If neither of these apply, hold the two deuces and get three new cards.

With just a single deuce, the strategy will require holding any paying hand of four of a kind or better. Try to break any lower paying hand to make a royal flush. Next, hold any full house hand dealt. If these situations do not apply, try to get the best ranking hand possible. If there are no cards that will help create a high paying winning hand, hold the deuce and discard all others.
