How to Play Deuces and Joker Video Poker Online
To play Deuces and Joker video poker online, you first decide how much you plan to bet and then designate that you want to play the maximum of five coins. Next, you click on the "Deal" button.

Any time a deuce or the joker turn up, the computer automatically puts the "hold" sign on them so that you won't lose them in the draw by mistake. Once you have decided what cards you want to hold, you click on "Draw" and your new cards are displayed. The computer then tells you if you have a winning hand.
The Payout Table is well displayed and you can always see what you have won.
A Fun Feature of Deuces and Joker Online Video Poker
Once you have a winning hand in the online video poker game of Deuces and Joker, you are given the choice to "Collect" your win or go for the "Double". The Double is the real fun feature of this game. If you click on the Double button, you are shown a five card hand with one card (the dealer's) turned up. You need to pick a card from the other four that will have a higher value than the dealer's card. If you have chosen well, your winnings are doubled which can give you significant additional coins. You can continue with the doubling feature until you decide to collect or until you lose, which is not so great.
With five wild cards, Deuces and Joker is an attractive and entertaining addition to the selection of online video poker games and a nice change for video poker players.
