What is an ‘Ace-Deuce’?
Ace-Deuce is a term applied to both the card game poker and table game craps. In poker the term Ace-Deuce refers to when the player is dealt an ace and a two in their starting hand. In craps it refers to rolling a value of three, which is always made up of a one and a two, or Ace-Deuce.
Ace-Deuce is a term applied across the popular casino games of poker and craps.
In poker an Ace-Deuce is typically considered to be quite a speculative hand and not premium hand, but because of the ace most players will try and play this hand in the hope of making either a pair on the turn, a potential ace to five straight or, if the ace and the two are of the same suit, a potential flush is also on. If the ace and the two are of the same suit then it represents much better value to play but be warned about playing it; it is considered to be a losing hand over the longer term.
In craps, an Ace-Deuce is simply made by rolling the dice and revealing a one and two, also known as three craps. This score comes in as often as rolling an eleven, making it a popular bet on the table, with odds of 15 to 1. For example, playing $12 will return $200 to the player, including their original stake. However, rolling an Ace-Deuce typically only happens once in 17 throws of the dice, giving the house an 11.11% edge on this bet. Please note that this is a single roll bet, meaning that the shooter must roll a three on the very next roll or else you will lose your initial bet.
