Bonus Deuces Wild

Bonus Deuces Wild Video PokerBonus Deuces Wildsf?? is a variant of the more popular Deuces Wild video poker game. The game is sometimes called Deuces Wild Bonus Poker. This video poker game is played with a standard 52 card deck. The 2's in the deck serve as Wild Cards. The 2's can stand in as any other card of the deck in order to help the player complete a paying poker hand. This gives a great advantage to the player but it is still a challenge to create a paying poker hand since the lowest paying hand is a three-of-a-kind.

sf??Bonus Deuces Wild differs from Dueces Wild in two aspects. While the latter only has one general payout for any five-of-a-kind, the former game's paytable subdivides five-of-a-kinds into three different categories:

  • Five Aces
  • Five 3,4 and 5's
  • Five 6's through King's

sf??This subdivision is typical of the Bonus Poker games that have extra payouts for different types of four-of-a-kinds. Since the 2's are wild in Bonus Deuces Wild, completing a four-of-a-kind is much easier; therefore they have added the bonus payouts for five-of-a-kinds instead.

Bonus Deuces Wild vs Deuces Wild

sf??The second difference between Deuces Wild and Bonus Deuces Wild is one extra poker hand added to the paytable. The latter game has an especially high payout for 4 Deuces and 1 Ace; a hand that does not exist for Deuces Wild.

sf??Bonus Deuces Wild is a very exciting game to play because you are able to complete very strong poker hands such as Full Houses, Four-of-a-kinds, Straight Flushes, etc, in higher frequencies. This advantage should not distract players from the fact that beating a video poker machine is not easy. To get the best payback rates for Bonus Deuces Wild, the game must be played with a solid strategy. Further below we will show you a complex but effective guide for Bonus Deuces Wild.

How To Play Bonus Deuces Wild

If you have played any draw game before then Bonus Deuces won't be too hard to learn. Find a machine that has a denomination you feel comfortable betting with.
