DJ Wild Stud Poker is a virtual poker game developed by Shuffle Master and distributed by Scientific Games. The same provider stands behind such titles as Four Card Poker, Caribbean Stud, Let it Ride, and Mississippi Stud. The DJ in the name doesn’t allude to a party maniac or a nightclub/music theme. It stands for Deuces and Jokers, the most important cards in the game.
At the beginning of the round, the player is required to make equal bets on the Ante and Blind positions. There is also an optional Trips side bet which pays even if the player loses and the dealer ends the round with a better hand. Once the bets are made, the player gets his/her five cards, and the dealer gets his set of five cards. The next step is to review the cards carefully and decide whether to Fold (forfeit the Ante and Blind wagers) or go for the Play bet. If you Fold, the Trips bet will still remain active. If you opt for the Play bet, you will double your Ante wager.
The dealer will proceed to reveal his packet of cards. Comparing the other hands with his, the dealer will proclaim which hands lose. Should the player beat the dealer’s hand, he/she stands to claim a payout of 1 to 1 on the Ante and Play wagers and various payouts for the Blind wager depending on the hand value. Straight pays 1 to 1, Flush 2 to 1, Full House 3 to 1, Quads 4 to 1, Straight Flush 9 to 1, Quints 10 to 1, Royal Flush 50 to 1 and, finally, Five Wilds are worth 1,000 to 1.
In this game, the Joker is always considered a Wild card. However, deuces can be used as Wild cards and natural cards, depending on whether the player wants to assemble a winning Trips hand or not. In case of a tie, the Ante, Blind, and Play wagers push. When the Trips bet is active and the player assembles a Five Wilds hand, he/she will receive a 2,000 to 1 payout.
