As mentioned earlier, this game plays like other video games except the fact that it pays the maximum for a five aces hand. You would be dealt an additional suit of star cards and the fifth ace will come from this suit. Your strategy should focus on making the best possible winning hand, and a five aces hand as much as possible to get the maximum of 1200 to 1.
Basically, the dealer or the machine will deal 5 cards to you. You can choose to either keep or discard them. The discarded cards will be replaced at the draw when you hit the ‘draw’ button. Prior to this, you will have to hit the ‘hold’ button to indicate that you have kept a hand. The machine will check if you have a winning hand, made from the new cards, and the payout will be done based on the paytable. You can place bets with 1-5 coins. The maximum limit is 5 coins and most players love to bet the maximum for the highest returns. The paytable may not be the same across all sites and machines. So, you would want to check this aspect before you start playing. When you wish to stop playing, you can hit the red ‘cash/out’ button to get your credits and earnings cashed out.
