    Play your hand right with Deuces Wild

    Play your hand right with Deuces Wild


    Created by Net Entertainment, Deuces Wild is an excellent poker game to begin online poker gaming if players are particularly new at it.

    The game takes place on a scratched greenish background, and there’s a slightly dystopian feel to the colour scheme and the atmosphere.

    All available hands are listed on the left-hand side, and players cards are the main set of five in front of them. Players betting options are located at the screen's lower section. 

    How To Play Deuces Wild
    Deuces Wild aims to make the best five card hand with using only one set of replacement cards. Meaning that players can replace any or all of their first and with newer card additions in the hope of forming a winning combination. 

    Players begin by clicking the green button at the bottom of the screen where five cards will be dealt to players. Pressing 'hold' will freeze which card players would like to keep. Pressing the green button again will deal players their replacement cards so they can produce a win.

    The game is called Deuces Wild because each ‘2’ acts as a wild and substitutes for the most useful card you need. If players land a ‘2’ on their first deal, the game will automatically hold it for them to be helpful.

    Winning Strategies for Deuces Wild
    To succeed at Deuces Wild, players should follow any one of the below strategies:

    • If players are dealt a hand with four deuces, hold all five cards, as they cannot improve this hand anyway.
    • Hold any three cards that could form a Royal Flush.
    • Hold any four cards that could form a Straight Flush.
    • Always hold a four-card Flush.
    • Hold any Two Pair if the Full House pays the same as Four of a Kind.
    • Always hold on a four-card Straight.
    • Always hold three cards to a Straight Flush.
    • Always hold deuces.
    • Keep any pair unless players are one card shy of a Straight or Flush.
    • If players are dealt a hand with three deuces, which is highly unlikely, then they can choose to hold all five cards or go for Five of a Kind or a Royal Flush.
    • If players are dealt a hand with two deuces, keep the two deuces and draw new cards; or keep any of the four cards to a Royal Flush. Always hold any Four of a Kind or better.
    • If players are dealt a hand with a single deuce, keep four cards to a Royal Flush, four cards to any Straight Flush, any Three of a Kind or better, three cards to a Royal Flush, three cards to a Straight Flush if the other two cards are suited connectors, or in all other cases, just keep the deuce.
    • If players have no deuce, hold the highest paying hand. As players do this, never hold four cards to a Royal Flush if players already have a lower paying hand.
    • Discard all five cards if players do not have a deuce, a Pair, or any other paying hand.

    If players like to try and double up their wins, they only need to press the ‘Gamble’ button and try and guess the colour of the next playing card drawn. Players can double up their winnings for a maximum five attempts.

    Deuces Wild is an example of how to design a decent video poker game. It is highly-interactive and addictive online poker where mastering play is relatively simple and can be highly lucrative if players are able to master the strategies listed above.
