How to Play Aces & Eights
Aces and Eights is a very simple game with great graphics and a little bit of a twist when it comes to payouts. The game is very simple in the aspect that it only has one opponent, the house. Players love this game because it’s very easy to learn. The game is played with a traditional deck of 52 cards, there are no wilds or jokers involved. Players will notice that the cards are randomly shuffled after each round while the game is played. Like with most video poker games the highest hand to obtain is a Royal Flush which is of course, the Royal Family, Ace Queen King Jack & a Ten all of the same suit. The great thing about this game is that if a player just happens to deposit five coins and come up on a Royal Flush, they’ll earn a huge jackpot of 4000 coins!
There are three buttons used throughout the game play of Aces and Eights they are:
Bet One – This is the button players will use when they want to make one bet at a time, if they would like to bet more than one coin but don’t want to bet five they can click this as many times as they would like up to five.
Bet Max – This is where players can bet all five coins at once, be careful after you click this button the game begins!
Deal / Draw – Deal is the button used after the player has made their wager and draw is when the second round of cards are dealt in a hand.
During the game, players will want to obtain certain hands to score a big win they are as follows;
Royal Flush: Ten, Jack, Queen, Ten and Ace of the same suit.
Straight Flush: Five cards in sequence that are of the same suit
Full House: consists of three cards of one denomination along with a pair of another denomination in one five-card hand.
Flush: Five cards of the same suit.
Straight: Five cards in sequence
Four of a Kind: Four cards of the same face.
Jacks or Better: Pair of Jacks or a higher.
The game begins when the player places their bet, the player can do this by either hitting “Bet One” or “Bet Max” depending on how much the player would like to bet. The player is then dealt out five cards face up, the player will then need to decide which cards to keep by clicking the cards. When the player clicks “Draw” they will have new cards in place of those they choose not to keep. When the player has a winning hand, a bonus game is offered where the player will have 5 cards placed in front of him, one face up the others face down. The player must choose one of the face down cards which need to equal higher than the face up card in order to win the double bet!
