Five Aces Video Poker

Five Aces Video Poker is a draw poker game developed by IGT (International Game Technology). As you probably have guessed it, the game gets its name because there are 5 Aces inside the deck. This game therefore uses a 53-card deck that is shuffled after each hand is played. The extra Ace card has a black-and-red star as its suit. It does not function as a wild card; it only helps create ordinary pairs, three-of-a-kinds, full houses, normal straights, and four/five-of-a-kind.

IGT has created quite a number of video poker game variations. You may read our articles on other IGT games such as Draw 6 Poker, Ace Invaders, Double Pay Poker and 3-Way-Action Poker.

Most of these games are not original creations in themselves, but rather themes applied to pre-existing games. With Five Aces Video Poker, IGT has added the extra Ace card to three popular video poker games:

These video poker games have been modified slightly in their paytables, as you will be able to see below. Due to these variations on the paytable the last two games cannot be played with a standard Bonus Poker strategy.

Where to Play Five Aces Video Poker

IGT’s provides gaming machines to many land based casinos in the United States. Currently Five Aces Poker is found in four states: Mississippi, Nevada, New Jersey, and Wisconsin.

Some of the casinos that provide this game include:

How to Play Five Aces Video Poker

Five Aces Video Poker Five Aces Video Poker is available in two different IGT platforms, Multi-Hand and Single-Hand Game King. If you play on a single-hand platform the machine will give you 3 options, one for each of the three games (Jacks or Better, Double Bonus Poker, Double Double Bonus Poker). If you have a Multi-Hand platform then you will see 9 options when you sit down at the machine. There will be three columns with three rows, each column belongs to one of the three games and each row represents the number of poker hands you will play simultaneously. On the Multi-Hand platform players may select: Triple Play, Five Play and Ten Play respectively for 3, 5 or 10 simultaneous hands.

Once you have selected your favorite game (and the number of hands you want to play at the same time), enter money into the machine. Your credits will appear on the lower right corner of the poker window. On Single-Hand add one credit at a time by pressing the Bet One button or press Bet Max to bet the max 5 coins. On Multi-Hand there is one more option for adding one credit simultaneously on all hands by pressing the Bet All Hands button.

Once you have selected the number of bets per hand press the Deal Button. Select your best cards and press the Deal button again to discard the rest and get new cards for the discarded ones. A final 5-card poker hand is completed and will pay according to each game’s paytable.

Jacks or Better 1 2 3 4 5

There are considerable changes on this paytable. Jacks or Better normally has just one payout for any four-of-a-kind. On Five Aces Jacks or Better, there are 3 different types of four-of-a-kinds similarly to the Bonus Poker paytable. Two Pair normally pay 2 credits on a one-coin bet, here we see only a 1:1 payout for Two Pair. The extra Ace naturally allows there to be five-of-a-kind and this is the top paying poker hand of the game.
