  • To solve this module, you need to send the money you won to your card number, via the device handed after winning.
  • Have fun!

Step A: The house rules.

Step B: The correct coin and card.

To win in Four-Card Monte, you need to follow the correct card and, after a shuffle, find it again. You also need the correct bet.

Step B1: The correct coin:

The correct coin (or bet) is decided by the cards and coins that are dealt to you.

  • If your first card is an Ace of Spades and a lit BOB is also present, then press the 1st coin.
  • Otherwise, if your last card is a Jack of Clubs and you have more than 1 red coin, press the 4th coin.
  • Otherwise, if a Queen Of Hearts is present and there’s any king present as well, press the 2nd coin.
  • Otherwise, if an Ace of Diamonds is present and you don’t have duplicate coins, press the 3rd coin.
  • Otherwise, if all cards are from different suits, press the 1st coin.
  • Otherwise, if there are 2 Spades and 2 Clubs, press the 2nd card.
  • Otherwise, if you have 2 Hearts and 2 Diamonds, press the 4th coin.
  • Otherwise, if you have 2 pairs, press the 3rd card.
  • If none of these apply and the serial number contains a vowel, take the last digit of the serial number. Else take the first digit. If it’s higher than 4, subtract 4.
  • If you get a 1, press the 1st coin. If you get a 2, press the 2nd. Etc.

Step B2: The correct card:

The card that should be found after the shuffle, is decided by card combinations and the flowcharts below.

  • If you have 4 of the same suit, all different ranks*, you have a "Four-Card Deluxe".
  • Else, if you have just 3 cards of the same suit, you have a "Three of a suit".
  • Else, if you have 4 of the same suit, of any rank*, you have a "Four Flush".
  • Else, if you have exactly 1 King, 1 Queen and 2 Jacks, you have a "Kingdom Combo".
  • Else, if you only have exactly 1 King and 2 Jacks, you have a "Royalty Rush".
  • Else, if you have 2 or more Aces, you have an "Aces High"
  • Else, if you have exactly 1 Queen and 1 Ace, you have a "Queen’s Rule"
  • Else, if you have 2 pairs of suits, you have "Dual Pairs".
  • Else, if you have 2 hearts, you have a "Lucky Love".
  • Else, if you have none of these, you have "Total Trash"

Find the flowchart that matches your combo and find the correct card there.
* Ranks mean symbols.

Step C: Flowcharts.

Step D: Winning and sending the money to your credit/debit card.

If you chose the correct card, then congratulations! You won! All you need to do now is input the correct amount of dollars and cents on the device you just received and send the money to the card number displayed above.

Step D1: Dollars:

The amount of dollars you will send to your card can be calculated like this:

  • First, take the value of the coin you pressed at the start. (See the house rules for the values)
  • Then, multiply the amount of batteries with the amount of indicators, and multiply that with the amount of ports. (If any of these are 0, then add 1)
  • Lastly, add the number to the value of the coin you pressed.
  • If the value is higher than $999, subtract $1000

Input the amount of dollars in the device. If it’s lower than 100, you can enter in the 2 digits and press the "Cent" key, to switch to cents. It will automatically do this upon entering 3 digits.

Step D2: Cents:

The amount of cents you will send to your card depends on your card number:

  • For the 10 cents digit, take the digit in the card number that is in the position of the first digit of the serial number, plus 1.
  • For the single cents digit, perform the same action, but in the position of the last serial digit, plus 1.

After inputting the correct amount, press the green button to send the money.
