Payday FreeCell How To Play

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.

Payday FreeCell Tips and Tricks

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.

If you are certain that you have completed the challenge requirement you will have to contact Customer Support.

I have completed this challenge so many times it makes me sick! I do not get my point or my progress. It is not giving me my score when i finish the game all cards at the top within 130 moves. no it does not go blank and yes I can go to next game no it doesn't freeze. Yes I am getting all to the top and it is within the 130 moves. Firefox Windows 10 i believe. I am really tired of messing with this. I have over 7000 badges and this has been the most messed up one.

Look in the Challenge tab below the game to make sure the Badge it there:
Current Challenges in Payday Free Cell.
You are saying that it isn't completing the end of the game with a score and progress? What is it doing? Does it go blank? Go to next game? Freeze?
And, you are getting all the cards in the top piles?
What browser are you using?
What operating system?

Well Skratty I've been having the same problem over the past few days. It's flash games only - I've had both a white screen and a black screen. It's nothing to do with my browser as I've tried several. I have had two error messages if I wait long enough - one that my connection has been lost (when I get a white screen) and one that there are server issues (the black screen) - I've tried all the tricks that usually work - signing out and signing in, clearing my browser, closing my browser, rebooting ... nothing works except to wait a couple of hours and then it seems to come right again until it happens the next time. Hope this helps fix the problem.

People are not providing nearly enough information in order for anyone here in the Pogo Games Forums to offer suggestions. At minimum we would need to know what people are seeing when they say "not loading" (white screen, black screen, frozen screen, etc), the browser they're using and if the same exact thing happens when they use a different browser, and whether they've tried anything to address the loading issue (clearing caches, rebooting computers/routers, etc).

Not with Pogo settings, however, using the magnify feature on your computer (if you have Windows) works nicely.
