Deuces Wild Strategy


Since there are 4 wild cards in the deck, the minimum hand that you must receive to win is a 3 of a kind or better. That means that the strategy is going to be quite different than the traditional Jacks or Better video poker game. The highest hand in the game is still a natural royal flush, but the second highest hand is 4 deuces.

Here is what you should hold when playing deuces wild:

All deuces must be kept as well as any pat hand (a completed hand that doesn't require you to draw). In almost all scenarios, you should keep a winning hand (3 of a kind or better) intact.

1) If you have three deuces, you will discard the other two cards unless you have a straight flush or royal flush.

2) If you have two deuces, you will discard the other three cards unless you have a 4 of a kind or higher or if you have 4 cards to a straight flush or royal flush.

3) If you have one deuce in your hand, you will discard the other four cards unless you have one of the following:
3a) Keep 4 cards to a Royal Flush / 3b) Keep 4 cards to a straight flush with 3 natural connectors / 3c) Keep any three of a kind / 3d) Keep 4 cards to a straight flush / 3e) Keep 3 cards to a Royal Flush / 3f) Keep 3 cards to a straight flush if you have two natural connectors.

4) If you have no deuces, you will discard all 5 cards unless you have one of the following:
4a) Three cards to a Royal Flush / 4b) Four cards to a Flush / 4c) Four cards to an outside straight draw / 4d) Three cards to a straight flush / 4e) Four cards to an inside straight draw / 4f) Two cards to a Royal Flush

Joker Poker Strategy


Joker Poker is a video poker game that uses a 53 card deck. The one joker in the deck is wild and can be substituted with any other card. Because of this fact, you will be required to get a pair of Kings or better in order to win on your wager. This will change the basic strategy a little bit in comparison to Jacks or Better.

Deuces and Joker Poker

Deuces and Joker is the final various of wild card game that I have found. This is a 53 card video poker game with 5 total wild cards. Because of these 5 wild cards, you will still need to recceive a 3 of a Kind or higher in order to win on your bet. However, the payouts are lower than Deuces Wild because of the addition of the Joker.

I currently do not have a particular strategy that I use to play this game that differs from my Deuces Wild strategy. The only reason to play this game over deuces wild is to go after the highest paying hand: 4 Deuces and a Joker - which pays out 2000 to 1. This is more than twice the payout for a Natural Royal Flush.
