Magically appearing ace of spades theory shamelessly stolen from Reddit (with minor tweaks)

The cards had color changing ink that worked under body heat. It's why it needed to be under her, not in a pocket, and why she couldn't look at it first. Any card would turn to the ace of spades under those conditions.

Then all he needs to do is protect the other three aces so they aren't the ones chosen. A 49 card deck isn't noticeably different from a 52 card deck and he could have palmed them in, or just stuck them at the top/bottom of the deck under the assumption that nobody will cut to card 1 unless P/T get to be the card cutters. Even then, stack the aces at the top for one reveal and stack JQK at the bottom for matching reveals.
