Four Aces is like the game Three Card Monty, except there are four cards and the player can choose how many win, from one to three. Naturally, the fewer cards that win, the more you can win.
- The game presents four cards, one ace in each of the four suits..
- The player starts by choosing a bet amount, from $0.01 to $1000.
- The game shuffles the cards. It is so fast that I don't think paying attention to the original cards with the balls will help.
- The player must pick one to three suits, for example hearts and clubs.
- The player picks a card. If it matches one of the suits he chose before, then he wins.
- If chose one suit and wins, then he is paid 3.84 for 1. With two suits, the win is 1.92 for 1. With one suit, the win is 1.28 for 1.
