Deuces Wild has a slightly different gamble from most video poker games. You may commonly see a gamble whereby you need to beat the dealers’ card from a choice of four face down cards in standard video poker. Deuces Wild uses a concept that is more common in slot machines that offer a gamble; choosing red/black or the correct suit.
You can gamble up to five times, doubling or multiplying by X4 for a correct suit. You can also collect at any time. Simply choose a gamble option for a random outcome to be selected. After each successful win, you will have the option to collect or gamble for more.
I personally prefer the beat the dealer type gamble as it feels I’m more in control. This gamble is still good, and is there if you want to make use of it.
All in all Deuces Wild video poker is a good fun game, and will be pleasing to play for any video poker fans.
