Aces and Faces Video Poker

Aces and Faces is one of many versions of Video Poker and online video poker. This game uses a 52-card deck that is shuffled after each hand is played. There are no wild cards in this game but certain normal cards will give out higher payouts than in other video poker machines. This is why the game is called Aces and Faces, the four-of-a-kind of Aces, Kings, Queens and Jacks are going to give out bigger jackpots.

The game has the same rules as Jacks or Better video poker, but the paytable changes. The best paying hand after the Royal Flush is a four-of-a-kind of Aces and not a straight flush. Also, having a four-of-a-kind with a face value card (Jack, Queen or King) will pay more than a four-of-a-kind of Tens or less.

Here’s a standard Aces or Faces paytable:

Poker Hands Coin 1 Coin 2 Coin 3 Coin 4 Coin 5
Royal flush 250 500 750 1000 4000
Four aces 80 160 240 320 400
Straight flush 50 100 150 200 250
Four Jacks, Queens, or Kings 40 80 120 160 240
Four 2's through 10's 20 40 60 80 100
Full house 8 16 24 32 40
Flush 5 10 15 20 25
Straight 4 8 12 16 20
Three of a kind 3 6 9 12 15
Two pairs 2 4 6 8 10
Jacks or better 1 2 3 4 5


Although the higher payout for the special four-of-a-kinds may allure you into playing this machine, remember to check if it is a full-pay video poker machine. Most Aces and Faces are short-pay machines. This means that they pay less on lower-ranking hands, which is what you are probably going to hit anyway. A full-pay video poker machine pays 9 coins for a Full House and 6 coins for a Flush on a one-coin bet. This is known as a 9/6 full-pay video poker game. As you may notice on the paytable above, the standard Aces and Faces pays 8/5 for Full Houses and Flushes respectively, making it a short-pay machine.

On the positive side, Aces and Faces machines pay much Aces and Face Video Poker higher for the special four-of-a-kinds and in some cases for Royal Flushes too. Some machines start with a 500 coin win for a one-coin Royal Flush and the jackpot increases for each extra coin bet until reaching the 4,000 coin Royal Flush win for a 5-coin bet.

As most other video poker machines, there are 25¢, 50¢, $1, $2 and $5 Aces and Faces poker machines. It is important to play 5-coin bet hands to win the top jackpot for a Royal Flush. This means that if you choose a quarter video poker machine, pressing the Max Bet button for the 5-coin bet will equal $2.25 wagered for each hand played.
