Pai Gow Poker is a cutting-edge game with old origins. Built on the ancient Chinese domino game and the current American version of poker, Pai Gow poker combines the eastern with the wild west in an excellent game for new gamblers.

Pai Gow is a poker game that pits the player against the dealer, unlike almost all other poker games that players play with other players. By betting against the dealer, starting players don’t need to fret about other, more advanced players taking their money.

An additional Pai Gow benefit is the relatively leisurely game play, newcomers are able to take their time and plan without having to make hasty selections.

It’s also easier to bet on for an extended time with just a tiny amount of cash since, to lose, each of your hands must be lower than both of the dealer’s hands.

Pai Gow is played with 53 cards; the normal 52-card standard deck and a single joker. The player is dealt 7 cards faces showing and the croupier receives seven cards faces hidden.

A five card hand and a two card hand need to be put together from the 7 cards, the 5 card hand must be higher than the two card hand. To succeed, a player is required to have both of his hand values to be larger than the casino’s.
