In many common lounges and bars, the 'house" rules say this wins the game.

* Correction - Under APA rules, the largest governing body in the US, sinking the 8 ball on the break is a win. See the below link for the 8 Ball rules that govern the majority of pool players in North America.

What if the 8 ball in pool is hit in on a break?

In many common lounges or bars, if the 8 ball is potted on the break then you win the game. In actual proper rules, the break is considered a fluke shot, and , as such, one cannot win or lose the game on the break. Under proper rules, two choices are given to the player; spot the 8 and shoot from where the balls lie, or re-rack and re-break. Keep in mind that if the original player fouled, the incoming player can elect to re-spot the 8, and continue as usual(cueball in hand behind headstring), or re-rack and break himself. Also of note:On the break, an 8 ball launched off the table is not a loss of game.
