Jackpot Deuces is an exciting variation of Deuces Wild and unlike most video poker games, it comes with an impressive progressive jackpot. The game was developed by Microgaming and it can be played only in real-money mode. The progressive jackpot is quite a unique feature for video poker and it to qualify for it, players need to bet the maximum 5 coins. However, the coin size is fixed at $/€1, so the maximum bet per gaming round is $/€5.
Rules and Gameplay
Microgaming’s Jackpot Deuces plays just like Deuces Wild – it uses 1 standard deck of cards, in which all 2s (Deuces) are wild cards. They function as substitutes for all other cards in winning combinations, except in Natural Royal Flush and Diamond Royal Flush.
The rest of the rules and payouts are almost the same as in regular Deuces Wild – players can bet 1 to 5 coins and choose which cards from the initial deal to hold and which ones to discard. The second deal brings new cards for the chance to form a winning poker hand. Just like all other video poker versions by Microgaming, Jackpot Deuces comes with a Gamble feature that allows players to double their winnings after each round.

The paytable of this game is quite similar to the paytable of regular Deuces Wild but the presence of a progressive jackpot requires certain changes. The jackpot can be won only when getting a Diamond Royal Flush (10-J-Q-K-A of diamonds) while playing with 5 coins. If players bet 1, 2, 3, or 4 coins, the regular payout and RTP apply. The game has an RTP of 93.89% and the jackpot contribution is 4.50%.
It should be noted that the lowest-paying poker hand in Jackpot Deuces is Three of a Kind and players who get this combination receive even money. There are three additional payouts for Five of a Kind, Four Deuces and Deuces Royal Flush.
Microgaming’s Jackpot Deuces is a relatively simple video poker variation that does not require a complex strategy. At the same time, players have the chance to win a fantastic progressive jackpot.
