Wild Cards or No Wild Cards on Poker Slots Causes Debate

Poker slots have always been the subject of debate when it comes to choosing between slots offering wild cards and slots that offer just straight 5 Card Draw poker play.
It is amazing at how many people chose the wild card slots over the slots that offer just straight 5 Card draw poker. When questioned on exactly why they justify their opinion it was simply a matter of the fact that wild cards offer more outs. This is a tough call because you have to take into account the percentages and the qualifying hand values. It then became apparent that the best opinion on this debate is not your average casino goer, but the hard line poker slot players that know the game inside out.
Straight play machines offer lower qualifying starting hands, which on a good machine is a pair of Jacks-or-better. There are some out there that even offer a pair of tens or higher, or even some that limit your chances of winning with Kings-or-better. However, it is obvious the best straight play machines offer the lowest starting hand, and that kills that particular debate quite obviously with no argument.

As for the poker slots giving out wild cards there are two styles you can find. Deuces wild or Joker Poker. Again this debate was easily solved because the deuces wild machines offer four two cards, which are deuces, as wild cards whereas the Joker Poker machines only dishes out two Jokers as wild cards. The only debate left here was the qualifying hand.

The Joker Poker slots offer a better qualifying hand through Kings-or-Better while the Deuces wild machines give out a qualifying hand that is simply any three-of-a-kind hand. The slim difference between landing a pair-of-Kings in return for two wild cards compared to landing a three-of-kind in return for four wild cards was discussed, but then when comparing the pay-out the three-of-a-kind pays out the same amount as Kings-or-better. Another pint made was that deuces wild machines do not pay out for two-pair hand combinations. When looked at further for 2 wilds you can win double the odds of a three-of-a-kind hand on deuces wild slots plus if you land a two-pair on the Joker Poker this pays three times the odds than a three-of-a-kind hand on deuces wild slots.

With the debate between the best wild card machines on offer solved, and the debate amongst the various qualifying versions of the straight play machines out of the way it became clear that the competition amongst the poker slots was not as easy as when the question that sparked off the investigation, which was to find out whether wild card poker machines give players more of a chance than straight play poker slots.



Now the investigation had been left with new questions to be answered. Is the Joker Poker machine better than the straight play machine? And is the Deuces Wild machine better than the straight play slot play?

Joker Poker won the first debate simply due to one particular reason. Most poker slot players did not see how a qualifying hand of Jacks-or-Better would benefit them when compared with a Kings-or-Better qualifying hand despite the fact that if they landed the two-pair on the straight machine they would be paid double the amount than they would on a Joker Poker machine.

As for the deuces wild machine, many players did not like the fact that the qualifying hands were so high even with 4 outs, and so they would rather play the straight play machine.

On balance, the investigation did not take into account any statistics and only opinion, so there is now a call for a statistical challenge of this report that will be coming soon.
