Double D’s Wild Card Stud


Double D’s Wild Card Stud

Is played on a table just like the one in the picture below. There is a maximum of 8 player’s including the Player Banker, there is a minimum of 2 players to start the game, one of whom is a Player Banker.

Wild Card Stud uses a standard 52-card deck, including a Joker, for a total of 53 cards. While using a shuffling Machine or Hand shuffling, you always start the dealing to the left of the button and only deal to the guest that are seated at your table. Once the hand is dealt, the players will then look at their cards and determine if they want to call, raise or fold. If the player wins against the DP hand, then their BET and CALL bets are paid one-to-one. If the player wins and also has a qualifying hand for the BLIND bet, then it will be paid out accordingly. Otherwise, if the player wins but does not have a qualifying hand for the BLIND wager, then the BLIND wager pushes. If the player wins and has a sufficient hand for the optional BONUS side bet, then it will be paid out accordingly. Otherwise, the BONUS wager will be forfeited despite the player winning the hand. If the player is holding a hand of the same rank as the DP then the BET, CALL, and BONUS bets will all push.

If the player and the DP are also holding the same qualifying hand for the BONUS wager pushes as well. If a player’s hand loses against the DP’s hand, then all of their bets are forfeited. Once all of the action is completed, then the Player Banker will turn over their cards. Then the dealer will spread their cards (Player Banker) in front of them.

Then going from left of the button, the dealer will then determine who has won and lost. The dealer will collect all the chips from the guest that had lost and pay out the guests with the Player Bankers chips, all based on the following payout charts.

Wild Cards

Deuces and Jokers maybe used to represent any card in a standard 52 card deck. You may play them anyway you want. Also, you may just lay your hand down just like in poker and the dealer will read the hand for you.

Betting Structure

  1. To receive cards each player must place a minimum of $5 up to a maximum of $1000 on both the BET and BLIND.
  2. An optional BONUS bet can be placed initially along with mandatory BET and BLIND wager. This bet can be a minimum of $5 up to a maximum of $1000 (Note, this bet is only paid out if the player’s hand wins against the DP’s hand)
  3. After receiving their cards, the player will make the decision to either fold or continue playing the hand. If the player decides to play their cards, then they must place a new bet on the CALL/RAISE spot that is 1x or 2х their initial BET wager.
  4. If a player wishes to play “blind”, then they must preemptively place a wager on the BET, BLIND, and CALL spots in accordance with the standard betting rules.
  5. If a player wishes to play multiple spots, then they are only allowed to look at one hand at a time and must play all others “blind”.

Hand rankings are mostly conventional and listed as followed in ascending order:

  • High-card
  • Pair
  • Two Pair
  • Trips
  • Straight
  • Flush
  • Full House
  • Quads
  • Straight Flush
  • Five of a Kind
  • Royal Flush
  • Five Wilds


If a Player or Banker has a hand of Trips or higher and gets beat, then that Bonus will be paid out according to the Pay out listed on the felt.

Designated Player & Rake

The designated player will be responsible for doing the following three things every hand:

  1. Placing their cards under the dealer button
  2. Sliding their cards forward face up for the dealer to display and read their hand
  3. Returning the dealer button to the dealer at the completion of each hand

The rake will be calculated based on the number of “Designated Player” plaques on the layout and total amount of wagers placed. Once a player opts out of being a designated player their plaque will be returned to the dealer and rake adjusted accordingly. The rake is to be collected from the designated player and placed on the rake slide before the players receive their cards.

If there are multiple designated players on one game, the rake is taken from the Designated Player with the Dealer Button in front of them for that hand. Designated player’s will not have a bet in play when banking the games and must play the hand out.
