Deuces and Joker Wild

Deuces and Joker Wild is a video poker game that allows the player to play up to five "wild cards" in a hand. The game is a combination of Deuces Wild and Joker Wild, being that the deuces and joker are wild, and therefore substitute the other cards in making certain hands. This offers greater flexibility in building a winning hand.

Players are allowed one to five coins per hand ranging from twenty-five cents to five dollars per coin. To win a prize, the player has to make at least a three-of-a-kind. Like deuces wild, a player gets a prize by getting the four deuces, although the payoff has been reduced from 200x the bet to just 25x the bet.

The main advantage of the game is that a five wild card hand has a payout percentage of 2000 to 1 as opposed to a "natural" Royal Flush with a payout percentage of 800 to 1. Although it provides a very high payoff, hitting five wild cards is also the most difficult hand to achieve in any video poker game as there is only one way to make it against 2,869,685 possible hands.
