Practice Aces and Eights Video Poker Game and Play for Real Money

For the true fans of the “4 of a kind” combination, Aces and Eights offer three separate variants of the combo: four sevens, four eights, and four aces. All with different weighting! That’s great, we know it, but still, none of those is great enough to beat Royal Flush. And jacks or Better rule is still due here.

Aces and Eights is a game also known as the ‘Dead Man’s Hand.’ The way this game became so famous is actually a follow up of a very infamous event. It all started with two men playing a card game — William Hickok and Jack McCall. McCall was losing heavily and Hickock advised him to stop playing for the time being and lent him some money for the food.

The next day, Jack entered the saloon begrudged and offended, and he shot Hickok in the back of his head. William died on the spot and McCall was sentenced to death only 7 months later.

At the time of his death, William was holding five cards in his hand — Two aces and two eights. Nobody is completely sure what was the fifth card, although there are speculations it was the Queen.

Minimum and maximum payouts and casino bonuses are usually set by each casino differently. You can find this game in form of video poker, and it’s not any different from the regular online poker. Royal flush, straight flush, four of a kind and other combinations are still the usual rules, so there is nothing new you would need to learn before you start playing.
