Jackpot Deuces is a variant of online poker developed by popular online game-maker Microgaming, based around a five card hand, a fifty-two card deck, and a progressive jackpot. As with regular video poker, a player is initially dealt five cards. The cards are then either held or discarded, with new cards dealt to replace those discarded.
Initially, the computer will select for the player the cards which give the best chance to win, although the player may choose to override the computer's choice. Deuces, or twos, are wild, meaning they can be used as a substitute for any other card. The best five card hand wins.
Features and Gameplay
Because of Microgaming's success and the rising popularity of online gaming in general, the progressive jackpots on games such as Jackpot Deuces can rival those of the slot machines in Las Vegas. The jackpot grows until a player making the maximum five-coin bet receives the best hand: a Diamond straight-flush (the ten, Jack, Queen, King and Ace of Diamonds), using no wild deuces.
Therefore, players have an opportunity to collect a jackpot much greater than if he or she were playing a standard poker game. Jackpots for Microgaming's Jackpot Deuces game regularly rise to the tens of thousands, with an average jackpot of around thirty thousand dollars. The largest jackpot listed earned the lucky player north of one-hundred-and-twenty thousand dollars.
However, Jackpot Deuces has a feature that sets it apart from other online poker games: the progressive jackpot. Jackpot Deuces' progressive jackpot allows for greater winning potential. Rather than paying out at the end of every hand, the jackpot in this game grows progressively larger, taking a small percentage of each players' wagers over time. Microgaming's progressive jackpot system works across their various online locations, with the token amount of each player's bet collected from everyone playing online.
Jackpot Deuces is the perfect game for an online player looking for something more: more excitement, more chance, more reward. The thrill rises as quickly as the progressive jackpot - and, as the jackpot rises, so does the potential for a life-changing victory. Jackpot Deuces, from Microgaming, offers its players entertainment... and more.
