The goal

The aim of 7-27 is to have the hand with a total point value of 7 or 27 without going over. A player playing for low but goes over the goal of 7 will continue taking cards and play for 27. The player loses the game if the hand goes over the 27 mark.

How to play the game

  • Like most games in BK8, players have to place an ante before the dealing of the cards.
  • The dealer only starts dealing once the antes are all in. Each player receives one card face down and one face up.
  • Players can look at their own down card but not the card of other players. The face down card should not be face up during the game.
  • The player with the highest point card will start the betting round. 10, J, Q, and K are half a point so betting starts with the player whose hand is closest to a nine.
  • Each player lets the dealer know if they want an extra card.
  • Another betting round takes place after each player makes a decision. The betting starts again with the player with the highest hand.
  • The cycle continues until everyone passes on taking extra cards.
  • A final betting round then takes place. The player whose hand is closest to 27 and the one with the hand closest to 7 without going over splits the pot.
