Although Faces n’ Deuces is one of the less common video poker games, it is still played in a lot of casinos.
Like regular video poker games, Faces n’ Deuces Poker is a 5 card draw game played with a standard 52-card deck. A dealer or the machine deals 5 cards to a player. The player can choose to either keep them or discard any of the cards or all of them. Once he decides to keep a hand, he has to hit the ‘hold’ button on the video screen. To get his discarded cards replaced, he needs to hit the ‘draw’ or ‘deal’ button. In certain machines, the ‘hold’ and the ‘draw’ buttons are combined. After you have hit the draw button and new cards are given to you, the machine will determine if the final hand that you have is a winning one. The payout for the winning hand will be based on the paytable shown below. There might be slight changes in certain machines. So, check the pay line for each hand before you start playing.
One of the major differences in this game is the fact that you will get paid for a hand that consists of deuces and faces. The payout for these hands is shown in the table. These hands rank above other regular hands except the Royal and Straight flush.
