Deuces Wild

Deuces Wild is one of three principal Video Poker games that have been modified to create most of the games that are available today. Deuces Wild changes the basic Video Poker game by changing all 2s in the deck into Wild cards (a card that can be used as whatever card in the deck is most beneficial to the player).

For ease of comparison, the below table displays the best House Edge for Deuces Wild available at each software provider;
