Crazy 8's Poker Video Poker Highlights

The "Crazy 8's" variation of video poker is one that offers a pay scale that is somewhat similar to that of the Bonus Poker game, with a couple of exceptions. One of them is that the payout for two pairs is the same as one pair with Jacks or better.

But most notably, Crazy 8's does indeed go crazy with eights; in fact, players are in for a very handsome payoff when striking gold with them.

Let's backtrack for a moment - the way video poker works, players are dealt an original five-card hand at the outset, then use the "hold" button to hold onto the cards that are going to be of help in developing a winning hand. In this particular game, eights are going to be of extra assistance.

Here is the full pay table, which of course is based on the player making the maximum bet of five coins or units:

  • Royal Flush -- 4000
  • Straight Flush -- 250
  • 4 of a Kind -- 125
  • Full House -- 35
  • Flush -- 25
  • Straight -- 20
  • 3 of a Kind -- 15
  • Two Pair -- 5
  • Pair, Jacks or Better -- 5

It is highly recommended that the maximum bet of five coins is made; the reason for this is that the payout on the Royal Flush is 4000 coins for five coins, while the payout for one coin is only 250. It is critical that you get the bonus payoff with the maximum bet, since hitting a Royal Flush is one of the things you aim for.

As you can see, the payout for one pair and two pairs is the same. In addition this, four eights pays 1000 coins, and four eights with an ace kicker pays 2000 coins. Both of these payouts are higher than anything else but the Royal Flush.

Coin denominations of 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 and 50 cents, as well as $1, $2, and $5. The maximum bet is $25, derived from five coins at the highest denomination.
