Free Deuces Wild Video Poker

Deuces Wild is one of the two most popular variations of video poker, along with Jacks or Better. The wild deuces give you many ways to make paying hands, but they also make the best strategy slightly more complicated than Jacks or Better strategy.

Below you can learn how to play, which pay table you should look for, and the best way to play your hands once you get started.

Playing Sequence

Once you find a Deuces Wild machine to play, you put money in. When you play online if you’ve made a deposit to your account balance, you should be ready to play for real cash as soon as you open the game. When you play at a land based casino you insert bills or a slip with your balance from another machine to get started.

The next step is to choose how many coins to bet per hand. We always recommend betting five coins per hand because it pays a bonus when you hit a natural royal flush.

Now hit the deal button and you get your first five cards. Choose which cards you want to keep and which ones you want to discard. Hit the hold button under the cards you want to keep, and then hit the deal button.

Your discards are replaced with new cards and when you have a paying hand the winning amount is added to your balance. Hit the deal button again to start your next hand. Make sure the machine remembered your choice to bet five coins per hand on your next hand.

  • Deuces Wild Pay Tables

    The Deuces Wild pay tables listed below are the most common ones, with the exception of the full pay version. Full pay versions are rare and can only be found in a few land based casinos. The best pay table available that can be found on a regular basis is the NSUD version.

    The payout of 800 listed for a natural royal flush represents the per coin payout when you bet five coins. The total payout is 4,000 coins for a five coin bet when you hit a natural royal flush. The rest of the payouts listed below are the ones you see in the one coin column on the machine.

    Notice the house edge listed in the bottom row. If you can find a full pay machine and use perfect strategy the house edge is negative. This means you actually have an advantage over the casino in the long run.

    Game NSUD Ugly Ducks Full Pay
    Royal Flush No Wilds 800 800 800 800 800 800
    Four Deuces 200 200 200 200 200 200
    Royal Flush With Wilds 25 25 25 25 25 20
    Five of a Kind 16 15 15 15 16 12
    Straight Flush 10 9 9 10 9 9
    Four of a Kind 4 4 5 4 4 5
    Full House 4 4 3 4 4 3
    Flush 3 3 2 3 3 2
    Straight 2 2 2 2 2 2
    Three of a Kind 1 1 1 1 1 1
    House Edge .27% 1.09% -.76% .58% .77% 1.06%

    It can be confusing trying to determine which pay chart is better when you compare machines. We recommend using this chart to find the best machines. Take a few minutes to compare the different pay charts to see how changing one payout changes the house edge.

    If you can’t find a NSUD Deuces Wild machine you should see if a 9 / 6 Jacks or Better machine is available. A 9 / 6 Jacks or Better machine offers a lower house edge than all of the Deuces Wild machines listed above except the full pay and the NSUD.

    The first thing to remember is you always bet five coins per hand. Then see how many deuces you hold and use that column in the chart. Start at the top of the column and go down until your hand matches the hand in the column. Then keep the listed hand and discard everything else.
