aces and faces Video Poker
Like most video poker games, Aces & Faces is also based on ‘Draw Poker.’ In these games, you need to make the highest hand possible from the 5 cards that are dealt to you. There are no competitors and you have to battle it out yourself.
The basic game strategy of aces and faces is not very different from other video poker variations. This game is played with the usual 52-card deck. Since there are no wild cards in this game, you would have to stick to a very simple game strategy. With the 5 cards that you are dealt, you can choose to discard any or all of them. If you discard any of the cards, you can get a replacement. The machine determines the result of the game and your payout would be based on the hand that you have. You would have to check what the payout system is before you get started.
In Aces & Faces, the dominant cards are the ace and face cards. If you have a four-ace hand, you would be paid a maximum of 80 times of what you have bet. The caps on the betting would be 5 coins and the maximum can go up to 400 coins. At the same time, four face cards, either king, queen or jack will earn you 40 coins if you have bet the minimum number of coins. Of course, there are other hands too that you can get paid out for, but the level of payout would not be as good as that of an ace or a face card hand.
Some of the good starting hands include - 3 or 4 cards of a royal flush, 3 or 4 cards of a straight flush/regular flush, 4 cards of a straight, 2 high cards of the same suit, pairs and 1 or 2 unpaired face cards or aces.
The Basic Poker hands in this game have been listed below in their order of ranking:
- Five-of-a-Kind (if you are playing with wild cards)
- Royal Flush (10-J-Q-K-A of the same suit)
- Straight Flush
- Full House
- Flush (all of the same suit)
- Straight (5 cards in a row of mixed suits)
- High Card
In aces and faces, the betting format is also quite basic. A single coin varies from 5 cents to 5 dollars. So, if you have bet the maximum of 5 coins, you would be placing 25 cents to 25 dollars. If you have won with a good hand, the payouts are typically very good. It is always recommended that you bet with the maximum number of coins even when the value of the coin is not high. Even if it is 25 cents that you’re betting, the payout will still be the maximum. One important factor you must consider is the variation in payouts in different sites. You need to search for the best sites before you select one with the best payout. Usually, the best way to judge this is the payout for making a full house. If the payout is 40 coins or more, it is a good choice.
