In order to play Aces & Eights:
Click on the "Bet One" button, once for each credit you wish to bet, or the "Bet Max" button to place the maximum bet of 5.
After betting using the "One" button, click on the "Deal" button, whereupon you will be dealt one five-card Poker hand. (If the player utilizes the "Max" button to bet, the deal will occur automatically.)
After the first draw, click on "Hold" under the cards, if any, that you wish to keep.
Click on "Draw" again,thereby replacing the cards that you have not chosen to hold with new ones.
Your cards are then compared to the table of winning combinations (at the top of the screen). If the value of your hand is lower than the minimum winning combination, you lose your bet. If the value of your hand is higher, you win.
Double Playoff Round:
When you produce a winning hand (a combination of 2 Jacks or better) you are offered a double playoff round in which you are given the opportunity to "Double" your winnings. If you do not wish to participate in the double playoff round, simply click on "Collect".
How to play the Double Playoff Round
Click on one of the four cards that remain face down.
If the card that you choose is of a higher value than the card turned over by the computer - you win, and the double playoff round continues, if you wish.
Please Note: If you do not wish to continue participating in the double playoff round, simply click on "Collect".
Common Winning Combinations:
Jacks or Better: One Pair pays off only if the cards in the pair are Jacks, Queens, Kings, or Aces. Lower pairs do not pay off.
