Killer Ace

Published: 19/05/2013

Software developers are always looking for new ways to reintroduce tried and true games at online casinos. One sure recipe for success is to take two familiar games and somehow combine them to create something totally new. That was the concept that led to the development of “Killer Ace,” a unique marriage of Roulette and a standard deck of 52 playing cards that can now be found at major gaming web sites like Bet365.

The layout for Killer Ace resembles a Roulette table design, but with the card symbols 2 through King making up the central field as opposed to the numbers 1~36. The cards appear in two equal rows, 2~7 and 8~K, with the Ace at the left end of both rows much like the Zero would be in classic Roulette. At the bottom of the field, there is also a section for “outside” bets: Odd or Even, Red or Black and the four card suits—Hearts, Diamonds, Clubs and Spades.

In the foreground of the display is the control panel. It contains coloured chips of six different denominations: €0.25, €1, €5, €10, €25 and €50. Buttons are also provided for “Undo,” “Clear,” “Rebet,” “Double,” “Deal” and “Bet Info.” The message display at the bottom of the screen reads, “Place your chips!” The “stake” indicator can be found at the upper left corner and the “Win” indicator is in the upper left corner.

To begin a game of Killer Ace, click on the denomination of the chip desired and then click on the wager to be made. As the cursor passes over the betting field, corresponding Payouts will be displayed in pop-up boxes above the field. Bets made on a card straight up pay 12.6X, wagers on two adjacent cards pay 6.3X and backing three cards, such as the Ace-2-8, is worth 4.2X. Betting on a block of four cards has odds of 3.15X. The minimum wager on field bets is €0.25 and the maximum is €5.

For the outside bets, odds of 2X are offered for successful wages on either of the two rows of six numbers, on Red or Black, and on Odd or Even. Correct bets made on any of the four card suits will pay 4X. The minimum wager on outside bets is €1 and the maximum is €50.

Once all the bets have been positioned, clicking on the red Deal button will activate the card dispenser that appears above the betting field. The mouth of the dispenser glows with a blue light as a playing card is ejected onto the table surface. All winning areas of the betting field will light up and flash with yellow borders. The total amount won will be posted in the Win indicator and the message display will announce “You win!” along with the total amount to collect. Also, the Deal button will show light up with the word “Continue.”

In order to see exactly what was won on each amount wagered, the player can click on the Bet Info button. A pop-up window will show each “Bet” made, the amount of the “Stake” and the “Payout” in the form of a matrix. To return to the game, click on the red “Close” button at the bottom of the pop-up.

Only after the player clicks on “Continue” will the winnings be added to the player’s “Balance” of funds, as shown at the upper right corner of the screen. Then, the card that just appeared will be swept to the right side of the display and remain there to show the “History” of play. Up to a total of five History cards are maintained on the table before the eldest of them is swept back into the shuffler of the card dispenser. Use Rebet to repeat the same wager or place new bets as desired.
