* We don’t recommend any Dragonfish casinos due to increased risk of player issues.

Online we’ve found Aces & Faces Video Poker at casinos using Microgaming, Playtech, Rival, Vuetec, Dragonfish, Cryptologic and RealTime Gaming software. The paytables for the different softwares are displayed below;

Some notes on the tables below;

– We’ve included both the 5 coin House Edge and the House Edge when playing 1-4 coins. Usually the House Edge for 1-4 coins are the same and as such only one figure is listed. To find the house edge/paytable for 2-4 coins just multiple the 1 coin figure by the number of coins. Where the paytables differ by coins you’ll find four figures running from 1 coin on the left to 4 coins on the right.
