Deuces Wild

Deuces Wild in its full pay version features as high as 100.76% theoretical payout what makes it the highest paying Video Poker game. Unfortunately, it is impossible to find it in its full pay version online and you would also struggle to find it in any land based casinos. Maybe in some of those small local bars in Las Vegas.

The most important thing to realize is that Deuces Wild allows you to have up to 4 wild cards in a hand. The deck includes four deuces that can be substituted for any other card, just like a joker.

In the example below, the wild deuces complete our hand – a flush. That's why stronger hands like flush or straight are much easier to come by, when compared to games like Jacks or Better. This is, of course, compensated by the lowest paying hand being 3 of a kind.

The most important strategy advice is to NEVER DISCARD A DEUCE. It's kind of obvious, but still important to point out.
