Well let’s take a stroll away from the slots shall we? We have all sorts of games on the site including Pharaoh Bingo, a whole bunch of scratch cards, and quite a bit of online video poker for you.
Online Poker: you either you love it or you hate it, there’s not much middle ground. This wombat belongs to the former category, probably because of our have fond memories of the poker machine at our local Outback pub. How will this match up? Let’s play!
Look and Feel
Alright, we’ll be honest, Deuces Wild is definitely not a feast for the eyes, it’s definitely old Skool like Tunzamunni and Tomb Raider, but who’s complaining? Most online poker games tend to have very basic design and try hard to emulate the look of older pokie machines. But what’s with the blue background? A little eye candy hasn’t hurt anyone, please take note Microgaming! I mean you created the Mega Moolah slot, right? Theere some genius in there somewhere.
Deuces Wild Video Poker Game Play
Deuces Wild is a variation of the ever growing number online poker games. It uses a standard poker deck of 52 cards. As in most poker games, a hand of Deuces Wild starts with a bet. You are then dealt 5 cards which you can either keep, or discard in order to attempt to gain a better hand. Simply chose “Hold” for the cards you wish to keep and then click on “Draw” again. To make things a little easier for you, any winning cards will be automatically flagged as “Hold”. And this where the special special feature of this game comes into play.
As the title already gives away, deuces (this is the number 2 card in the vernacular of card sharks) act as wilds. But hold on; “Wilds in video poker” I hear you ask? Oh yes, Wombat Fans, in Deuces Wild a deuce substitutes for whatever card you need in your hand in order to complete the highest paying combination.
So yes, a deuce in this game is a very welcome sight. That’s why if you land a ‘2’ on your first deal, the game will automatically hold it for you by default. The winning combinations are the same as in standard poker. The 4 highest combinations are: Royal Flush, Straight Flush, 4 of a kind and full house. If you manage to land a natural Royal Flush (so without the help of a deuce cum wild) you could win the jackpot of up to 5000 coins! And if you land four deuces, the payout is a very respectable 1000 coins.
For the number-crunching freaks among you, there are also game stats and analytical tools available. Just in case you feel like doing a proper post game analysis to find out where all your money went …. Another addition this video poker game is the ability to potentially double your winnings. If you’re brave enough, the doubling option allows you to play a side game after each winning hand. But tread carefully here, there’s always the risk that you lose all your money as all it takes is one wrong guess and your hard won cash is gone.
The wild feature sets this game apart from the practically numberless video poker variations. However, it also makes winning in this game much much easier – and we all know what that means; the paytable is less generous than other video poker variants…
