Aces and eights

Aces and eights – Microgaming

When playing Aces and Eights video poker, the hands in the game are much like in video poker variations. A Royal Flush is the highest paying hand, and other high-ranking hands can earn you super payouts when you place maximum bets. A pair of Jacks or Better is the lowest paying hand. Then there are special rules that let you double your winnings by betting against the dealer’s face-up card.

If you’ve ever played a game of video poker, you may have come across Aces and Eights. It’s a popular variation of the game. Its name comes from the hand of the Dead Man’s Hand, which was a two-pair poker hand that was held by Wild Bill Hickock during the Dead Man’s shooting in 1876. However, it’s still unclear whether or not Wild Bill Hickok’s hand is the kicker, but legend has it that he held an eight.
