Post by Jimmytheg »

I've always thought the Deuces game plays best,but does it really? What do you think?

There are many different pay tables for these two games. Which ones are you referring to?

Ditto. I never play Triple Double. If you look at the various pay tables on the Wizard of Odds website, you can find the probability of a certain hand hitting. If you want to know the frequency, just divide 1 by the probability. Bonus Deuces is my favorite game with the 98.8 Pay table.

I wouldn't call it my favourite, but we both like to play it. We first encountered it many years ago, at Harrahs Laughlin, when they downgraded the 50 line machines (no more 9/6 JOB). It became the highest return game on those machines, and we took to it quickly. We played it a lot of it there for many years until they downgraded the machines again and the bonus deuces is now a much lower 97.36% game.

We can, and still do, play it at 50 line nickels at the Four Queens in Vegas. As well, I play it at our local (Casino Rama) casino on Hot Roll machines for 10 line quarters (no Hot Roll add-on) the two or three times per year we go there.

My preference is for Deuces wild bonus regardless of the pay tables on multiplier games. I was just wondering if I would be better off by playing Triple Double on these machines. I noticed that many people I know prefer that game. I read a number of times that Deuces wild bonus has the best payouts over time.

But, there's more to it than simply the name of the game. There are different variants of bonus deuces wild with long term payouts ranging from 99.86% to 96.22%, while triple double bonus has payouts ranging from 99.58% to 94.92%. Some bonus deuces games have better long term payouts than some triple double games, and vice versa. You need to know the respective pay tables you're comparing.

A game where 2's can count as a wild card will always be better than a game where a 2 is just a 2.

I would like to agree, but what about 99.54 JOB?
The best pay table for Bonus Deuces Wild I have been able to find is 98.80. That’s still my choice over JOB most times. Just can’t handle the boredom with JOB and those sessions without any quads appearing are brutal.

I prefer deuces wild over triple bonus. The win percentage does it for me.

It all depends on the respectable game/paytable and the denomination I choose. My go to lately has been Bonus/Double Bonus at a .50 machine. JOB is my last resort, paytable isn't generous with quads.
