Double-hand Poker is a cutting-edge game with ancient ancestry. Founded on the ancient Chinese tile game and the current American variation of poker, Pai Gow poker bands together the far east with the western in a fantastic game for early level players.

Pai Gow is a poker game that puts the gambler vs. the dealer, unlike nearly all other poker games that players wager with other players. By playing against the dealer, new players do not have to worry about other, more skillful individuals taking their mulla.

Another Pai Gow advantage is the generally leisurely game play, beginners will be able to take their time and plan without needing to make hasty choices.

It’s also easier to enjoy for a long time with only a small bit of money since, to not win, each of your hands must be under both of the casino’s hands.

Pai Gow is played with 53 cards; the customary 52-card standard deck and a single joker. The player is dealt seven cards faces showing and the casino is given 7 cards face down.

One 5 card hand and one 2 card hand must be put together from the seven cards, the 5 card hand has to be higher than the 2 card hand. To win, a player needs both of his hand totals to be better than the dealer’s.
