    I was playing this tonight and the following happened which seemed wrong to me. I was dealt 3 Deuces (Deuces Wild) and the Jack of Hearts and then the Dream Card. That came out as the King of Hearts to make a Royal Flush with Deuces.

    I thought the Dream Card was supposed to be the best one but that wasn't so I changed it to the fourth Deuce. Someone else was playing and I had asked him how to change it. He said you couldn't. I said I had thought I could but shouldn't really need to and wasn't sure how to do it. He has been playing for ages and never knew so I'm just giving a heads up that CET Dream Card seems to not give the best cards and to watch out for sneaky programming. This was on the Five Star machines. I think that's what they are called.

    You do have to be careful with Dream Card because it does not always deal you the optimal hand. On all the machines I've played though, you can change the Dream Card to whatever you want by toggling one of the buttons.

    Oh gosh. So you got only paid 100 instead of 1000?

    I might have called an attendant over. Problem is slot attendants hardly ever understand how all games work.

    And yes unfortunately dream card does have some bugs in selecting the card that igt/action gaming has never forced all casinos to fix yet. So players need to be aware. I didn't realize it existed in deuces like that though. That's much worse than my following example.

    This happened at Red Rock on my February trip playing 8/5 bonus poker.

    I had read about the error from Bob Dancer before, so I was aware of it. I manually changed the 10 to a 4 since quad 4s are with more. I used the button in the upright corner.

    I did change it luckily so got the 1000 coins. I'm wondering if the payback for this is worked out on the fact that it will give you a royal flush with deuces on the dream card rather than the deuce. I am wondering because I played this three times and each time got the four deuces after fairly little play, only once by having to change it though. If the payback is worked out on how the software is set and not how you can change it then it seems a great game to play if you know the glitches. Just a thought. This was at Flamingo so not sure if all Deuces Dream Card would be set the same way. Just wish I'd found it at the beginning of my trip and not the end. If the payback is worked out on the fact it surely should give you the Deuce on the Dream Card after already having three Deuces and it doesn't do that then it seems like very sneaky programming to me.
