Aces & Eights Video Poker
Though it may seem at first like any other video poker
game you’ve played in the past, Aces & Eights has a few
subtle differences that you’ll notice when you first start
playing and that could result in some pretty impressive wins
on this Realtime Gaming video poker machine. Now available
for play at Yebo Casino, Aces & Eights is all about the
four-of-a-kind combos but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t
still aim for that ever elusive royal flush.
The game begins, as so many others do, with 52 cards
and five of those are dealt to you facing upwards. You
will need to analyse those cards and indicate which you
want to stick with and which should be replaced. The game
does not offer wilds so you’ll need to consider the cards
you think could result in a winning combo quite
carefully. Should you manage to get a winning combination
of cards, you’ll get a payout and the ones to look out
for especially, as mentioned above, are four cards of the
same value but different suits. As the game is called
Aces & Eights, finding four aces or four eights should
obviously be your priority.
As with all other video poker machines, it is
recommended that you make the maximum wager in order
to claim the maximum reward but even if you decide to
bet just one coin, you could still get a really
decent payout provided you finish with a royal flush.
A one-coin wager will net you 250 coins in return for
this combo, but keep in mind that a five-coin wager
will net you a 4000-coin return which is a return of
800:1. The royal flush is the biggest payer but
following it directly is the four-of-a-kind combo of
aces or eights. Find either of these with a wager of
five coins and you’ll be given 400 coins in return.
Next is a straight flush, following by four-of-a-kind
sevens and then all other four-of-a-kind card values.
Many players ask whether video poker games
such as these ones can be manipulated using
certain strategies and while there is no way to
account for luck, you’ll find that employing
certain tricks could help you get closer to a
win. For example, if you are dealt certain cards
in the first deal, you can hold onto them to
increase your chances of winning. A perfect
example of this is being dealt either four cards
or three cards of a royal flush. A first deal of
a jack of spades, queen of spades and ace of
spades for example, is one that could see you
winning big so hang onto those cards tight.
Since four of a kind pays out so well in
this game, ensure you also hang onto any
pairs or three-of-a-kind combos. Got dealt
two sevens? Hold onto them. Received three
aces? Don’t let them go. Those are exactly
the kinds of card combos you need to keep if
you want the game to go your way.
