Deuces Wild Poker paytable

Strategy & Tips:

  • Do hold a dealt wild Royal Flush or 5-of-a-kind with 3 Deuces.
  • Do hold 4-of-a-kind, 4 parts of a Royal Flush or 4 parts of a straight flush with 2 Deuces.
  • Do hold 3-4 parts of a Royal or 4 parts of a straight flush either with 1 Deuce or no Deuce.
  • Do not hold one card except a Deuce.
  • Do not hold two cards unless pair, or 2-card royal draw in the same suit with no Deuce.
  • Do not hold three cards unless 3/kind, possible straight flush or Royal draw with no Deuce.
  • Do not hold just one other card with 1, 2 or 3 Deuces.

Lastly, discarding all 5 cards can seem unusual, but it’s a fact that about 20% of dealt cards will be tossed for five new cards. It’s wise to remember that 4 Deuces remain in the deck and can appear for a win on the next hand.

Top Tip!

Be alert for these short-pay hands that will reduce not only your return, but the overall payout percentage of the game.

  1. Wild Royal at 20=100 instead of 125 coins
  2. 5-of-a-kind at 12=60 instead of 75 coins
  3. 4-of-a-kind at 4=20 instead of 25 coins

Fast Facts

On average, every 5000 hands will be a winner with four Deuces designated as a secondary jackpot to the Royal Flush.

A wild Royal Flush with 1, 2 or 3 Deuces is known as a Dirty Royal—not the clean hand you hoped. For real money wins, play maximum coin for each hand at your favourite online casino.
