Payday FreeCell

Try your luck in Payday FreeCell, the classic game of free cell solitaire and rack up tokens by moving the cards from the table to the free cells. The goal of free cell solitaire is to arrange all cards into the foundations, by suit and in order from Ace to King.


Payday
Move all the cards from the table to the four foundation stacks at the top right half of the screen.

Start with the Ace
Each foundation stack must begin with the Ace of the matching suit. New cards of the same suit are added to the stack in ascending sequence

Bonus Scratcher
Scratch the bonus cards to receive bonus tokens.

Challenge Yourself
Use the free cells strategically to clear all the cards.

The object of Payday FreeCell solitaire is to move all the cards from the table to the four foundation stacks at the top right half of the screen. Each foundation stack must begin with the Ace of the matching suit. New cards of the same suit are added to the stack in ascending sequence: A, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K. You will always earn a token for every card you place in the foundation stacks. You will also see some special bonus "scratcher" cards on the table. When you remove these cards from the table, you may receive special bonus tokens. When you sort all 52 cards into the correct foundation stacks in the correct order, you win the game; then you keep all your bonus tokens and receive a Jackpot Spin!

A letter goes along with each number to help you find the numbers on your card more quickly. All the shuffles and deals of the cards are completely random. Unlike First Class Solitaire, it is almost always possible to remove all the cards from the table in Payday Free Cell solitaire. It may not feel like it, and you may get stuck or run out of legal moves, but the absolutely unsolvable hands occur less than 0.01% of the time. Replaying the same hand in a different way may allow for completing the game. The more you play, the better you get. The better you get, the more free cell solitaire games you complete and the more tokens you win!

Using only the cards at the bottom of the columns, there are three ways that game play can be started:
  • Any Ace at the bottom of a column should be moved up to its foundation stack.
  • Any other card may be placed on an alternate color card that is one value higher than that card.
  • Any card at the bottom of a column may be moved up to a Free Cell.

Here are some additional pointers designed to help you become a more advanced Payday Free Cell solitaire player.

Avoid building stacks on low numbered cards because you will probably need them sooner than you think.

Move any Aces at or near the bottom of the columns first.

Try to place cards in the Free Cells that you can easily put back onto the playfield.

Once you place a card in the foundation stack, you can't put it back into play.

There are times when you must manually move cards to the foundation stacks.

You don't get bonus points for using less moves or finishing quickly. In other words, take your time.

To reveal a specific card on the Free Cell solitaire table, right click on it.

Try not to fill up the top four Free Cells right away as it leaves less room for moving cards around.

Don't worry about chasing the bonus cards. Focus on winning the game by moving the cards to the foundation stacks first, and the bonus cards will come naturally.

Bonus cards are divided into four parts. Click on any part to scratch it off and get the number of points (or tokens) shown. The four bonus cards are additions to the regular 52 cards in the deck and have no suit or face value, other than the number of tokens earned.

Payday FreeCell • Re: PAYDAY FREE CELL NOT GIVING CREDIT

By Seska42 » October 2nd, 2017, 12:45 am

You have to win and earn 200+ tokens with that win.

If you get low scores on the scratch cards and a 100 token jackpot spin, you won't get up to the 200 tokens that you need in order to get challenge credit.

Payday FreeCell • PAYDAY FREE CELL NOT GIVING CREDIT

By mauser7537 » October 1st, 2017, 11:29 pm

I played Payday Free Cell today for over three hours. I started with 2 of 4 games won. I finally won 2 more games and it still would not give me the 4 of 4 for the BADGE There is something wrong with it. I sent an email to POGO because I am entitled to my badge and the 2000 tokens for winning 2 more games. Anyone else notice it's not counting your wins??? What a bunch of ######!

There are times when this game seems exceptionally easy, today being one of them. Maybe because it is the first day of the weekly challenge? But most of the time it can be pretty challenging. I usually replay a round until I win, sometimes replaying it several times.
I didn't realize you could do that to increase your winning percentage until I was several ranks into the game. :(

Payday FreeCell • Re: Badge Not Awarded

By Mod_Jada » September 26th, 2017, 12:52 am

There were no ranks when the game was first released on Pogo.

Ranks weren't added until a few years later, which means that any games won before then do not count toward rank progress.
