Deuces play a special role in many versions of video poker. For example, they can replace any other cards and form unusual hands in a popular version called Deuces Wild.
Deuces not only play the role of wild cards in Deuces and Joker video poker released by Microgaming. Four deuces are paid much higher compared to a four of a kind made of other cards. Moreover, four deuces with an extra joker form a special hand that ensures a prize of ten thousand coins if you play betting the highest possible amount.
Deuces and Joker is an online video poker
released by Microgaming. The game is played using one standard 53-card deck with a joker, which serves as a special card. All deuces also play a role of jokers. The deck is shuffled before each deal.
The aim of the game is to collect one of the paid hands. The lowest-ranking hand is three of a kind. The player can draw any number of cards once for free.
Users can stake one-five coins from twenty-five cents to ten dollars per hand. A natural royal flush (without wild cards) is paid disproportionately high if you wager five coins (compare the payouts for different bets: 250, 500, 750, 1,000 and 4,000). In addition, four deuces with a joker in the game are paid only if you bet the highest number of coins (the payout is 10,000 coins).
Deuces and Joker has a risk game in which you can try to increase your payouts. You will see five cards, one of which is face up. You have to select one card among the hole cards that will have a higher rank compared to the upcard. If your choice is correct, the payout is doubled. The error will automatically lead to the loss of bet.
Ten thousand coins can be considered to be a bonus payout in Deuces and Joker that is provided for four deuces and joker.
Progressive jackpots are not offered.
Users can download Deuces and Joker for free
at many online casinos running on products from Microgaming. It is not difficult to master its interface even at the intuitive level.
In the settings users can activate auto-hold, choose the speed of the gameplay and make other changes. Deuces and Joker also provides statistics of played hands.
The main thing that should be kept in mind while playing Deuces and Joker is the fact that you have to wager five coins. They may have small values, but their number should not be reduced. Otherwise, you may miss the opportunity to win, having collected four deuces with a joker, or get a small payout for a natural royal flush.
Thinking over the game strategy, you should take into account the large number of jokers. There are five of them. This significantly increases the probability of the formation of high-ranking hands. For example, a four of a kind in Deuces and Joker appears very frequently in the player's cards. Keep in mind that a royal flush with any joker is paid less than a natural royal flush.
In general, the game is quite unusual and very exciting at the same time. Just do not rush in playing betting high amounts. It is better to gain experience first.
