This video poker game with a keno bonus multiplier caught my eye as I was walking to catch some rays and Tecate at the Red Rock Resort pool. I’m a sucker for games like this with a bonus round and never noticed it before and I’m a curious guy so I had to stop and check it out.
I decided to play Deuces Wild because I wasn’t taking this $20 buy-in for 3-play nickel game too seriously. Gameplay is simple enough. The base game is just triple play video poker with a keno multiplier afterwards that can increase your payouts. The game is 5 credits per hand and another 5 or 10 for the keno bonus.
If gameplay is set to fast you can easily miss the keno bonus that occurs right after the video poker game is over. This is simply a different twist on a video poker multiplier. I don’t like keno and there are other video poker games with bad pay tables that have more fun bonus games.
Wheel Poker Deluxe is still my favorite video poker bonus game to blow a few bucks on. I’m glad I checked this game out but I probably won’t again. I like that games like this exist to break up the monotony that I find in straight video poker.
The mighty Wizard Of Odds has expected returns and proper multiplier plays if you’re curious for more information.
