The aim of 25-Line Aces & Faces is to get a five-card poker hand with a winning combination. The big difference here, is that you have 25 lines of cards, each from a different deck of cards. So you are playing 25 separate hands. You get a higher pay out for 4 Aces or 4 of the same Faces, hence the name.
The better your hand, the higher the payout. You can choose which cards to hold, and which cards to replace after the first hand is dealt. The game will automatically hold some combinations (you can cancel the game’s selection if you wish). You may replace your cards only once.
How to Play Aces and Faces Video Poker
Pick your coin value that you wish to bet. Then click “Bet One” or “Bet Max” to select the number of coins you want to bet. Each click adds another coin to your bet. Bet Max increases your bet to the maximum (five coins per line) – and the cards are dealt automatically.
Careful!- the bet size is per one line. So as there are 25 lines, 25 x the single line bet amount will be taken off your bank roll.
After the Cards Have Been Dealt.
Pick which cards you wish to keep by clicking on the “Hold” button underneath the card, or on the card itself. These selections will be held across all 25 lines. The auto-hold feature will also kick in if there are some obvious wins.
Click Deal to replace the cards that you want to exchange.
Your wins from all 25 lines if you have any will be added up, and the total shown in the Win field.
What Cards Win in Aces and Faces
The lowest winning combination is a pair of Jacks.
Doubling/Gambling and Double Half
If you end up winning something in your 25 lines, you have the option to collect or Double it. Should you choose to gamble, the dealer draws a face up card and you must choose a higher card from the 4 face-down cards-if the cards are equal, it is a tie, and you can collect your original winnings at this point or Double again. If your card is higher, you win. You can double again, although we would recommend that you play this option only occasionally, and with smaller amounts. If you win some money, it is best to bank it.
There is also a Double Half option, where you only gamble half of your winnings, and bank the rest.
