How To Play
The aim of Aces and Faces is to build the best hand possible in order to win the largest possible payout. To keep things simple you are playing just one hand at a time. At the beginning of each round you need to set your coin size using the arrow controls at the bottom left of the screen. You then need to choose how many coins to bet per hand, from one to five. You can use the ‘Bet One’ button to add a coin to your bet or make things easy by using the ‘Bet Max’ button to bet five coins and deal the cards.
Above the hand of cards, you will see the paytable that lists the different types of hands and how much they payout. The table has five columns and the column you are playing for depends on how many coins you bet per hand. For example, if you bet one coin per hand you play for the leftmost column while if you bet five coins per hand you are playing for the rightmost column and the largest payouts.
Once you have decided how much to bet simply click on ‘Deal’. You will then receive five face-up cards and need to click on those that you wish to hold. After you are happy with your choice just click on ‘Deal’ again and the remaining cards will be replaced. If the initial deal produces a winning hand then those cards are automatically held; however, you can change this just by clicking on them.
The lowest winning hand is a pair of Jacks or better. It is followed by Two Pairs, Three of a Kind, Straight, Flush, Full House, Four 2’s Through 10’s, Four Jacks, Queens or Kings, Straight Flush, Four Aces and Royal Flush. The hands containing just Aces and Face cards are the ones that aren’t found in regular poker and they give you extra winning possibilities in this game.
After every winning hand you are given the choice of ‘Double’, ‘Double Half’ or ‘Collect’. The first two options offer you the chance to gamble all or half of your winnings to try to double the money. If you select one of these options, you are shown a face-up card and need to choose one of four facedown cards, if it is higher in value than the face-up card then your winnings are doubled. Best of all, the process can be repeated numerous times.
The payouts change according to how many coins you have bet. If you are betting one coin per hand then Jacks or Better pays 1x, Two Pairs pays 2x, Three of a Kind pays 3x, Straight pays 4x, Flush pays 5x, Full House pays 8x, Four 2s through 10s pays 25x, Four Jacks, Queens or Kings pays 40x, a Straight Flush pays 50x, Four Aces pays 80x and a Royal Flush pays 500x.
If you are playing with more than one coin the payouts are multiplied by how many coins you have bet. For instance, if you are playing with four coins then a Full House would pay 32x (4 x 8). This rule is true for all hands except the Royal Flush. It pays out 1000x, 2000x, 3000x and 4000x for two, three, four and five coins respectively.
