Hi,

In the following sentence:

His face was much nastier, tastier, altogether more useful than I had banked on it being – barnacled and girlish with the bright eyes and prissy lips, as if there were another face, the real face, beneath his mask of skin.

What does "I had banked on it being" mean?

Thanks.
