  Super Deuces Wild:

Super Deuces Wild is a type of video poker. It was devised as a slightly better version of Deuces Wild, already a popular video poker variant. This version includes the addition of more bonus hands, and thus more opportunities to win big money.

Rules

The Draw Poker variant known as Jacks or Better forms the foundation of Super Deuces Wild, and, indeed, virtually all types of video poker. In this class of games, you first place your wager, and then get dealt an initial hand of five cards. You can choose to either keep your hand or make efforts to improve upon it. The latter option consists of discarding useless cards—or even an entire hand—and then drawing new ones. Of course, you are not allowed to specify what kind of new cards you want. You must calculate as best you can the odds of getting cards that will improve your poker hand, and then make your decision accordingly. Such are the rules of Draw Poker.

Super Deuces Wild is special because, as you have most likely guessed from the game’s name, all four Deuce cards can take on absolutely any value. Thus, they may be used to fill up “gaps” and thus complete high-ranking hands. Please note that the program decides for you what the value of the Deuce will be in your particular hand. If the software is working properly, it should assign the Deuce value that is most advantageous to the player. Should you notice that the game does not work this way, be aware that there is a serious problem in the particular version that you are using.

Super Deuces Wild


So far, the game is looking exactly like Deuces Wild. However, it does have a couple of additional features in the form of more bonus hands, thus meriting the adjective “Super.” You can get very high payouts if you obtain Five of a Kind (four matched cards plus a Deuce) or all four Deuces plus an Ace.

You may end up with a version of this game that automatically holds any Deuces you might obtain in the initial card deal. This mechanism is quite common in video poker games that have wild cards. This function may be a little surprising the first time you see it, but do not think of it as a bug or imposition. After all, why would you ever want to let go of a wild card? A Deuce is the best card you can possibly get in this game. Therefore, the game is only designed to follow logic—logic that happens to be advantageous to you.

As far as pay tables go, the lowest possible hand that will earn you a payout is one containing two Jacks—the same minimum as Jacks or Better. This is quite generous for a video poker game with wild cards, as other such games tend to compensate for the advantage offered by the wild cards by raising the threshold for winnings. You might, for example, have to get at least Three of a Kind to get even money. Here, however, you need not be anxious about losing the lower end of the paytable.

Types of Bets

There are not that many betting options available to you in Super Deuces Wild, but that is an aspect common to practically all kinds of video poker. You are just supposed to be up to five coins per round. Of course, since you often go through a large number of rounds in a single sitting, these small wagers can add up.

Super Deuces Wild Video Poker


We mentioned in the Rules section that you need to make the maximum bet of five coins in order to have access to the really big payouts for bonus hands. Not to worry: a maximum bet does not have to be worth much. If you set your coin value at, say, five cents, your maximum bet would be worth twenty-five cents. Of course, it must be said that a maximum bet made with higher coin values would get an even higher payout if you win the bonus, so there is always incentive to bet more money.

Strategies

A basic Jacks or Better strategy without any tweaking can still get you reasonably good results, but the Deuces are just important enough to encourage you to adjust your strategy, if you are confident and proficient enough to do so. Video poker beginners might want to stick to basic strategy in the beginning, but as they become more experienced, they are likely to want to experiment in order to make the best use of the wild cards. Here is a tip: if you have a Four of a Kind, be sure to discard the fifth card and hope for a Deuce.

Experience

The special status of the Deuces does not totally transform the game by any means, but this quirk in the rules has just enough impact to have many poker strategists scratching their heads. If a player likes, he or she can just stick to the usual Jacks or Better tactics, but then again, these strategies do not account for wild cards, and thus the player will not be able to properly maximize the game’s special features. Such is the dilemma faced by players due to the recent proliferation of video poker games with bonus features. In this respect, then, the bonuses can be seen as a way to throw poker strategies out of whack. Players will be confused about how to adapt themselves to the “new” games, which probably means more money for casino owners. This is a cynical, but not entirely unfounded way to view the recent “innovations” in video poker.

Deuces Wild, which can be called the immediate antecedent of this game, has enjoyed immense popularity among fans of video poker. We can reasonably expect this game to be just popular, as well, once it starts to become more widely available. It has all the benefits of Deuces Wild, plus a little more icing on top, so we really can call it a slight improvement on the original.
