Would I uses Deuces wild strategy for a loose deuces machine? 100.15% paytable if that helps!

No! Loose Deuces has a very different (and much harder) strategy. Use the video poker strategy generator on the Wizard of Odds site.

Here's the loose deuces strategy from the Wizard of Odds website.

Little difference exists in the strategy between Full Pay Loose Deuces (FPLD) and FP Deueces Wild (FPDW). I think the previous poster was thinking about the differnece between Not So Ugly Deuces (NSUD) and LDW. That is a very big difference.

The basic heirarchary of holds is the same in about 90% of the cases for LD and DW. One is the difference when you are dealt 3 deuces where you always throw away the other two cards in LD in hopes of getting the significantly higher payout for 4 deuces in LD versus DW. In DW, however, with 3 deuces you keep a wild royal or a 5 of a kind made with 10-A.

Another difference is that in DW with one deuce you always keep suited connectors of 6+7 or higher. In LD you only do it if there are no potential straight or flush penalty cards that you will throw away.

There are a few other differences, one with regard to the minimum starting hands with no deuces and with one deuece, etc.

Otherwise generally the two game's strategies are highly similar as you can see if you print out strategies for both and put them side by side.
