How to Play Aces and Eights

Before starting your game of Aces and Eights, choose your bet and the coin denomination or value you wish to play with. You can choose your coin value from 0.25 to 5 while the coin denomination ranges from 1 to 5, with 0.25 credits as the minimum wager and 25 credits as the maximum.

On the paytable, you’ll see the respective payouts for each of the 5 coin levels. Click on the column of your chosen coin level to place a wager. Now, you can start playing!
