    Game Rules

    An Ace can be the lowest or highest value card, depending on which benefits your hand better (i.e. A-2-3-4-5 or  10-J-Q-K-A).

    A 5 of a Kind must include at least one Wild card.

    If a natural Royal Flush (a Royal Flush with no Wilds) is won on the initial deal, all cards will be held automatically and the Royal Flush win will be awarded for all hands.

    If any other winning hand is dealt on the initial deal, cards will not be automatically held.

    Only the highest paying outcome is awarded per hand.

    Wins from two or more hands are added to the total amount paid.

    Different paytables have different minimum rankings for which prizes are awarded (e.g. the lowest winning outcome in Deuces Wild is 3 of a Kind).

    Misuse or malfunction voids all pays and plays in this game.


    Wild Cards

    Some paytables are based on the use of one or more Wild cards:

    • In Deuces Wild and Deuces Wild Bonus, all cards worth two are Wild. Wilds can be evaluated as a regular '2' if it maximizes the outcome (e.g. for the hand Ac-2h-3c-4c-5c, the Wild card is evaluated as a 2c in order to form a straight flush, which is the highest possible outcome for that hand).
    • In Joker Poker, the Joker card is Wild

    Given Wilds override all other cards to help secure wins - they have an equal chance of  being dealt as all other cards in the deck.

    Dealt Wilds are not automatically held.

    Certain paytables pay a different award amount for a Royal Flush, depending if the hand contains any Wilds (see paytables for more information).
