The Basics of Aces & Eights
Of course, in order to play and enjoy a game like Aces & Eights Video Poker, it is important that you understand exactly how this form of Video Poker works.
This particular version of online Video Poker is played much like the ever-popular Jacks or Better, with a standard deck of 52 cards. The aim of the game is to build the strongest possible hand by keeping or discarding cards in order to do so. You can decide whether you want to keep back some, or all of your cards, or discard some or all of them in the quest for a hand with the highest possible ranking.
Aces & Eights is one of the more popular versions of online Video Poker around as it features several high paying hands. In this game managing to draw a hand of four of a kind could prove to be very lucrative, particularly if those four are aces and eights, or sevens.
However, given the fact that this is Video Poker we’re talking about, the highest payout that this game can yield comes from a Royal Flush. In other words, drawing the ten, Jack, Queen, King and Ace of a particular suit all in one hand.
In Aces & Eights the payout for a Royal Flush with a five-coin bet is an astonishing 4000 coins. This makes Aces & Eights a very lucrative game to play, and at Spin Palace you have the opportunity to wager real money and reap the rewards, or play for free, just for fun.
Aces & Eights video poker is an exceptionally easy game to play. However, it is made even easier by the autoplay option. You can elect to make use of this function and by doing so don’t have to press the ‘draw’ button every time they want to play. Instead, you can set the game to play automatically maximising your chances of winning big, even when you are not able to commit your full attention to the screen.
A Rich History
Aces & Eights has a rather long and intriguing history as it is also known as Dead Mans Hand and was first played in the late 1800’s in the back rooms of bars and saloons. The game’s name is said to come from the legendary Wild Bill Hickock who was playing Poker when he was shot dead. In his hand he was still clutching a pair of 8s and a pair of Aces, and the moniker for this form of Poker has stuck around ever since.
