There are entire books written on optimal Deuces Wild video poker play. It is impossible to encompass everything written in these books in this article. However, a few tips should be mentioned that all amateur players should follow when playing Deuces Wild at any casino.

  • Always play at a full pay Deuces Wild video poker machine. There is never any reason to play at a Deuces Wild video poker machine that pays less than 98.9131% back, especially online.
  • Players should hold EVERY deuce ALWAYS. This rule seems obvious but must be mentioned. Deuces increase the number of combinations for every possible hand.
  • When choosing between holding a pair or a four-card straight/flush possibility, always choose the pair.
    The only single card that should ever be held is a deuce. Never draw for four cards if the other card is not a deuce, draw five instead.
  • Never keep two-pair. Two-pair doesn’t get paid and holding two-pair kills any chance of getting four of a kind.
  • Do not be afraid to draw to an inside-straight. Since there are four more possibilities (the four deuces) of hitting the inside-straight, the chances of hitting the straight more than doubles when compared to other video poker games. This makes it worth chasing the inside-straight.
  • Always hold a five-of-a-kind. 15 to 1 is a good enough payout and shouldn’t be thrown away to be greedy and chase a larger payout.
  • It is sometimes OK to discard all five cards. The deuces in the deck make this play okay at times. Some players have difficulty following this rule, especially if they are Jacks or Better players.

These eight tips should start new players off on the right foot. Of course, there are idiosyncrasies to the game that even the best gamblers in the world do not know. Players that want to learn how to play perfect Deuces Wild poker should purchase a book and begin studying. Good luck!
