Aces and Faces is a video poker game, and we can generally tell from the name of these games what the important cards are. In this Slotland/Winaday version, picture cards obviously count, and as in most online video poker offering Jacks or Better is the lowest winning hand ranking. It is an interesting looking game that basically mimics in 3D how one of these machines might appear, and work when on a live casino floor.
There are some extra special feature that can be found – for example credit size can be set to suit the bankroll of the player. All too often we find that the minimum wager is 1.00, and the maximum is 5.00, however, this games allows players to use various coin sizes. These start at 0.10, and increase up to 5.00 when playing with only one deck. It pays big time to use the maximum bet size to land the largest prize, however, a player should only spend what they can afford, as well as budget for this.
The amount of decks we are able to play ranges from one, through three, five, ten, twenty-five, and fifty, which are activated by simply pressing a corresponding button. When fifty hands are played, this makes it hard to determine what is happening on the screen, but the beauty of this particular game is that it holds the most preferential card for the player, so, they do not need to wade through all fifty hands. We are able to play in both “Hi”, and “Lo” mode where this adds just a tweaked twist into the mix. The design is good – it is different from most – play is smooth, but ambient sounds leave something to be desired. Fortunately all music and sounds may be turned off.
For what it is worth video poker games do not offer true bonus features, however, what they do offer is a chance to gamble again. On every play that’s a winner, the player is invited to take a gamble on their winnings. A second screen comes up with the gamble feature where we have select one card from four that will beat the bankers’ card. When the bankers card is low, the odds are better that the player will double their money, but unfortunately we don’t get the chance to see that card until we have clicked yes, and risked our money.
