Variations in Video Poker

Variations in Video Poker

There are different video poker variations. Some of them described below.

Deuces Wild

In a Deuces Wild poker game, four deuces (two’s) in the deck are substituted for any of the card and for any rank of any suit. There is no separate joker added and all the deuces of the deck are considered to be wild and can be substituted for any other card from the deck. For example, you can use a deuce of spades to be used as a fifth card for completing the straight flush in diamonds. You never have to discard a deuce.

Deuces and Joker
