Deuces Wild is a popular variant of video poker, where the objective is to get the best possible poker hand, but with the twist that all deuces counts as a “wild” card. This means that if you have a pair of kings and a deuce on the board, you will actually have three of a kind kings, since the deuce will count towards being a king, thus the name Deuces wild.
This is a good idea to do if you have a pair or any deuces on the board, to ensure that they will not change the cards. Once you have chosen the cards you want to hold, you simply press deal again and the cards that are not held will change to other cards. Once the cards have been dealt the second time the betting rounds are over and the machine will see if you have a good enough hand to get a prize or not and if so, pay you accordingly with the hand you have.
Deuces Wild is a fun game to play and is a great change for the players that normally play regular video poker, providing more good hands to the players because of the wild deuces. There is a difference in the strength of the hand you need to have in order to actually win a prize, you can read more about that in rules and payouts.
