No video poker section in a NetEnt Casino without Deuces Wild, the reason this classic video poker have been available for quite a while already. However in 2014, NetEnt decided some of the video poker games could use an upgrade. Besides a new look, some features got upgraded too, while the fast gameplay and the high payout of the video poker games remained untouched.
NetEnt video poker games
Joker Wild Multihand, Deuces Wild Multihand, All American Multihand, and Jacks or Better Multihand all have one thing in common, they are available in any NetEnt Casino offering video poker games. But that’s not all, because all of them offer the Double Up gamble feature, providing you a chance to double your winnings.
New in Deuces Wild Double Up
While NetEnt maintained the fast gameplay and high payout of Wild Deuces, you will for sure notice some obvious differences between Deuces Wild Classic and Deuces Wild Multihand. The first is the look of this upgraded video poker game having the look and feel of a game rather than a video poker. Also one game has been delivered to the NetEnt Casinos, which means all hand versions are now available in just one single game. This makes it much easier to switch from a one hand poker to a five hand poker and the other way around without closing the video poker game. Although one game only, Deuces Wild Multihand is still available in 1, 5, 10, and 25 hand versions.
Double Up Gamble Feature
The term Double Up links to the Double Up Bonus feature, an option that provides the opportunity to double the winnings you earn during the main game. While poker is about skills too, the Double Up Gamble Feature is all about luck. A good decision during the main game can award a nice winning, but one bad card in the Double Up Gamble feature can make your winnings disappear as fast as they were won. Make sure you realise before you choose to play the Double Up Gamble Feature.
Allow me to offer you some advice, and use the Double Up Gamble Feature only with small winnings of which it won’t hurt too much if you lose them. If you do choose to play the Double Up Gamble Feature it will be up to you to guess the right colour of the next card. Your winnings will be doubled when your guess is correct, but will be lost when it seems you guessed wrong. When you make a correct guess, you have the option to guess again on a new card with a maximum of five guesses.
From now on you have the opportunity to switch different hand version without closing a game, a function available in the navigation menu at the bottom of the Deuces Wild Multihand video poker game. In this same menu, you’ll find another switch which allows you to go from level 1 up to 5 and back. I can highly recommend to play level 5 instead of 1-4, simply because the game return to the player goes up the moment you choose to play level 5.
Also, you can change coin values easily with the third switch available in the navigation menu. The coin values can be different, depending on the number of hands you decide to play. The highest coin value available is 10.00 (1 hand Deuces Wild Multihand), while the lowest coin value available is 0.50 (25 hand Deuces Wild Multihand).
Starting with a hit frequency of 44.4% when playing the 1 Hand Deuces Wild, you actually have the power to increase this frequency up to 99.7%, just by playing 25 Hand Deuces Wild Multihand. The maximum coin win is 4000 coins (€40.000) when playing with 1 hand, but a playing 25 Hand Deuces Wild Double Up and the maximum amount to be won goes up to 100.000 (€50.000). The Return to Player (RTP) for Deuces Wild is 97.97%, which is rather low compared the Jacks or Better Multihand video poker offering a RTP of 99.56%
Deuces Wild Double Up rules
Although Double Up has been added to the upgraded version of Deuces Wild, this video poker game does follow conventional poker rules in how hands are dealt and formed. The game itself includes regular poker hands, as well as Wild cards. Also an automatic hold function is available and cards that are part of a winning hand will be put on hold automatically.
I can recommend video poker games in general, simply because they can be of a good cause when practicing poker. This is because of its fast gameplay, that gives you the opportunity to play more hands in an hour than this is the case with a poker card game. This way you can get into the different poker hands fast, as well as you eventually start to see chances, which is the main skill in playing online poker and offline poker. Would I recommend Deuces Wild Multihand in general, I do regarding the gameplay, but when it comes to a high payout, I would personally go for Jacks or Better Multihand.
