Pai Gow Poker is a cutting-edge game with old ancestry. Built on the ancient Chinese domino game and the current American variation of poker, Pai Gow poker joins the eastern with the western in a fantastic game for starting gamblers.

Pai Gow is a poker game that pits the gambler vs. the casino, not like most other poker games that gamblers wager with other players. By competing against the dealer, beginning players don’t need to worry about other, more advanced people winning their moolla.

One more Pai Gow benefit is the fairly slow game pace, newcomers are able to take their time and plan while not having to make quick selections.

It’s also simpler to bet on for an extended time with just a tiny amount of cash since, to not win, each of your hands has to be under each of the dealer’s hands.

Pai Gow uses 53 cards; the regular 52-card standard deck and one joker. The player is dealt 7 cards face up and the croupier receives seven cards faces hidden.

One 5 card hand and a 2 card hand have to be made from the seven cards dealt, the 5 card hand has to be stronger than the 2 card hand. To win, a player needs both of his hand totals to be better than the dealer’s.
