Bonus Deuces Wild Poker Tips
The beauty of Video Poker is that you can win if you keep cards that can be used in multiple types of hands. If you are dealt a good starting hand featuring at least three cards like 8-9-10-Q-3, hold everything but the three. The odds of you getting a straight are higher. If you are dealt an even more flexible hand such as J-J-10-Q-5, keep everything except the five. This hand has the potential to win Jacks or Better, plus you also have the opportunity to be dealt a Three-of-a-Kind if you get another Jack; a Straight, if you are dealt a King or a Nine, and Two Pair if you are dealt a second Ten or Queen. Using this tip is particularly useful when playing with multiple hands at a time.
Max Bet as often as possible. This increases your payouts exponentially.

Behind: Not currently having the best hand.
Bet: The amount of money you wager during the play of any hand.
Bet Max: A betting option that automatically bets the maximum amount of coins per game.
Bottom End: The lowest rank of a possible straight. For example, with the cards 5-6-7 in your hand, getting the 3-4 dealt to you gives you a bottom end straight. If you are dealt a 4-8 or 8-9, these combinations would be considered higher straights. Also called the "idiot end".
Discard: This is a previously dealt card that is now out of play. The set of discards in the round is called the "muck" or the "deadwood".
Flush: A Flush is a poker hand that consists of five cards in the same suit, but not in a sequence such as Q-6-4-2-A of Diamonds. It ranks higher than a Straight but lower than a Full House.
Four Deuces with Ace High: A hand of all four “2” Wild Cards and an Ace, such as A-2-2-2-2. It ranks above Four Deuces and below a Royal Flush.
Four Deuces: A Four-of-a-Kind made up of all four “2” Wild Cards with an unmatched card other than an ace, such as 2-2-2-2-10. It ranks above a Wild Royal and below a Four Deuces with Ace High.
Four-of-a-Kind: A Four-of-a-Kind hand has four cards of one rank, and an unmatched card of another rank, such as Q-Q-Q-Q-3. It ranks higher than a Full House but lower than a Straight Flush. Also known as a Quad.
Five Aces: A Four-of-a-Kind hand that is made up of any combination of Aces and “2” Wild Cards, such as A-A-2-2-2 or A-A-A-A-2. It ranks above Five 3-5 and below a Wild Royal.

For example, with the cards 7-8-9 in your hand, getting the 10-J dealt out, you end up with a high end straight.

History of Bonus Deuces Wild Poker
The earliest video poker machines appeared in the mid-1970s, the same time as the first personal computers were produced. The games were primitive compared to those offered today.
Video poker became more firmly established when Draw Poker was introduced in 1979. During the ’80s, video poker became popular in casinos, because people found the single player games less intimidating than playing at the tables. Video poker went on-line around the same time that the internet was becoming popular, but the initial products were clunky and slow. Free online poker was played as early as the late ’90s as IRC poker. The first poker game played for real money was dealt on January 1, 1998. Now available at many online casinos, more than 300,000 people play online video poker each day.
This exhilarating version of the more commonly known Loose Deuces, takes video poker to new dimensions whilst enabling players to make any card a 2 and with huge wins for 5 of a kind hands.
