How to play
How to Play Aces & Faces Power Poker
You can bet up to five coins per hand in Aces & Faces Power Poker. But you’ll always play at least four hands at a time. Otherwise, standard video poker rules apply.
For instance, you play with a regular 52-card deck, with no jokers or wild cards. The coin size ranges from just 25p to a fiver, with the highest bet you can wager £100. You can bet up to five coins per hand. And, clearly, your aim is to create the highest possible poker hand from everyone you are dealt.
Standard poker winning hands apply here:
- Jacks or Better
- Two Pair
- Three of a Kind
- Full House
- Four Twos through Tens
- Four Jacks, Queens, or Kings
- Straight Flush
- Four Aces
- Royal Flush (potentially worth a 4,000-coin jackpot)
First, place your wagers and then hit Deal. You will receive the first five cards of the starting hand and have to decide whether to hold or discard up to five of them.
Then, click on Draw and receive four extra hands from separate decks. They contain all the held cards in each, plus the fresh cards replacing the discarded ones.
Winnings depend on the final content of all four hands, and the payout table is displayed at the left-hand side of the gaming screen.
Aces & Faces Power Poker Special Features
Double or Nothing is a bonus game. It’s a poker variant incorporating a double-or-nothing bonus. Following any winning hand, you can either collect your wins or choose to play to double them. The former option places whatever you’ve won into your account balance before you proceed to the next hand.
Whereas doubling means going to another screen where a random card is shown from the deck, dealt facing upwards. Click on one of the other cards (facing downwards) and aim to get a card whose value is higher than the open one.
Also, if you’ve won, you can continue playing this feature until you reach the casino limit or decide to quit. However, if you lose, the feature ends and you’ve blown the lot.
Return to Player (RTP)
RTP or Return to Player is particularly high in Aces & Faces Power Poker, at 99.26%, meaning the rewards are definitely there if you play your cards right.
Given that this game rolls along at a faster lick than many other titles, it may not be the obvious choice for the less experienced player. But the structure of the paytable means there are some good opportunities for sizeable wins at the higher end of the payout scale. Meanwhile, the double-or-nothing feature also adds to the excitement, as do the strong graphics and sound effects.
So, try it out in free mode before you part with any hard cash. Equally, you may want to kick off with low stakes initially.
