DJ Wild (Deuces, Joker) Poker is a casino table game where players play against a house dealer. The objective of course is for the player to have a higher poker hand than the dealer in order to win.
The game is played with a standard 52 card deck plus one Joker. The unique offering is that the four Deuces and the one Joker serve as wild cards, which can be substituted for any card to improve the hand.
How DJ Wild Poker is Played
Players must first make (2) equal bets in the Ante and Blind positions. An optional Trips wager is also available which pays if won even if the player loses the hand to the dealer.
Each player and dealer receive five cards face down.After reviewing the cards, the player makes one of two choices: (1) Fold, forfeiting the Ante and Blind wagers. (2) Make a Play bet at 2X the Ante. The player then tucks the played cards face down under the wager.
The dealer will then reveal his or her cards, and in turn will compare the hand to the players’ hands that made the Play wager.
If the dealer beats the player, the ante, Blind, and Play bets lose. If the dealer and player tie, the Ante, Blind, and Play bets push. If the player beats the dealer, the Ante and Play bets pay even money, and the Blind bet pays according to the following table:
Five Wilds. 1000/1
Royal Flush 50/1
Five of a Kind 10/1
