Like with most online video poker games you will be dealt a five card hand, face-up. You will then select the cards you wish to hold on to. You may keep as many of the 5 cards as you want, or you can trade them all away. You simply click on the cards you want to keep and they will be held (you will see “Hold” on the card in question. Once this step is done you hit the “Draw” button, your discarded cards will be gone and you will be dealt new cards to replace the ones you have just discarded. The payout is always based on the corresponding payout which can be found on the Payout Table legend.
If your hand is a winner, you may increase your payout by playing the Double wager, but all that is at your discretion. You will spend hours stacking your chips in this classic version of the reimagined online poker game “5 card draw”.
The hands from strongest to weakest are as follows, Five Wilds, Natural Royal Flush, Four Deuces, Wild Royal Flush, Five of a Kind, Straight Flush, Four of a Kind, Full House, Flush, Straight and Three of a Kind.
If you like online poker games that boast Wild cards, this one is for you. The rare Bonus games are what pay out big here so you want to go for the gusto. If you’re into big winnings and are a risk taker you want to load this game up and stick around for a while.
You’re playing with a full 53 card deck so keep in mind the Jokers are wild here. Deuces and Joker wild poker maximizes your chances of getting a Wild card, that’s because there are four 2’s and a joker in the 53 card deck. So that’s just one out of ten chances of getting a Wild card.
Simple hands like a pair or two don’t win you anything here so consult the Payout Table before you start wagering.
