Aces and Eights is a form of video poker that uses standard poker rules for the most part. The paytable has been modified to provide information on payouts for combinations consisting of sevens, eights, and aces. The remaining game rules are the same as other video poker games. The lowest paying combination is a pair of jacks or better, with this paying equal to that wagered. You can choose to play up to 5 coins and this will increase all payouts by 5x and include a jackpot of 4,000 coins. RealTime Gaming has left the graphics and features as simple as possible for an authentic classic video poker experience, and all amounts paid for winning hand combinations are shown at the top of the game, with this changing based on the number of coins wagered per hand.
Your account balance and bet options appear at the bottom, and includes the value per coin. Changing the coin size has no effect on a number of coins you can win, but does affect the total amount you will win in dollars. Once the bet has been adjusted to suit your gaming style, press the deal button to be dealt the first 5 cards. Clicking on any of these cards will result in them being held in place for the next series of cards, with the only exception being if all cards are held. Once you press deal again, any cards that were not held will be replaced. Should any combinations be completed that appear you will be paid according to the paytable.
Aces and Eights is one of the easiest variations of video poker as the game is based on standard Jacks or Better. Other than the paytable, you will find all other aspects of the game are the exact same. Jackpot wins can occur for multiple combinations. The highest of those is a royal flush, which pays 4,000 coins at maximum bet. Getting a straight flush with the same wager will result in 250 coins, 4 of a kind ace’s or eights rewards 400 coins, 4 of a kind 7’s pays 250 coins, and the remaining combinations will provide standard rewards.
Aces and Eights is a more rewarding game that jacks or better for most players. The additional payouts for lower card hands allow you to maintain your bankroll while waiting for the higher paying hands to come.
