The Deuces Wild online video poker game is played individually and not against a dealer or any additional players. A full deck of fifty two cards, which excludes the jokers, is used and the deck is shuffled after each hand is played.

If more than one poker hand is possible with the use of one or more of the deuce cards then the deuces will automatically be used to replace the card that offers the highest ranking poker hand.
