Aces and Eights

The rules to Aces and Eights are very simple. As with most video poker games, players are dealt five cards face up. They must decide which cards to hold (how many cards they would like to draw). After they draw, their final hand is evaluated against the casino’s paytable and they are paid accordingly.

Of course, it is important to play optimally to have the highest expected value possible. The most important thing players must do is choose the best video poker machine. Choosing a good video poker machine is all dependent on the machine’s paytable. For online casinos, videopokertrainer.org has taken most of the hassle out of searching for the right paytable.

The paytables below have been ordered according to payback percentage. The paytable at the top is a full pay game available at Bovada and Classy Coin Casino. However, depending on Ladbrokes Casino’s Royal Flush jackpot, Ladbrokes’ Aces and Eights machine may be a better choice. Players looking to maximize their expected value should consider playing at casinos featuring the top two paytables.

99.7818% is the possible payout with a 50/25/8 format if Aces & Eights is played optimally.

It is called “50/25/8” because of the single coin payouts for 4 sevens, other 4 of a kind and full houses.

Aces and Eights strategy is pretty straightforward. Obviously, players holding a Royal Flush, Straight Flush, Full House, Flush, or Straight should not draw any cards. Players should draw one card if they hold four cards to a royal or straight flush, a four of a kind, two pair, a four-card flush, a four-card straight with three or more high cards, or a four-card open-ended straight. Players that have a three of a kind, a three-card royal flush, a three-card straight flush, or a three-card straight with three high cards should draw two cards. Players with one-pair, two cards to a royal flush, or two high cards should draw three cards. Any high card should draw four cards while anything below that should draw five cards.

Aces and Eights is a popular video poker variant. Its name stems from the infamous “Dead Man’s Hand,” a two-pair poker hand that became famous from the legend that Wild Bill Hickock was murdered holding this hand in a saloon confrontation in 1876. The video poker variant is similar to most basic video poker games.

The most important thing when playing Aces and Eights is having fun. Luckily, any casinos that feature the paytables above have a ton of other games to keep any gambler busy. Good luck at the video poker machine!
