Pai Gow Poker 

The Game

Pai Gow Poker is a mixture of the ancient Chinese game of Pai Gow and classic Poker.

The object of the game is to beat dealer collecting the winning card combinations out of seven cards. It is played with a standard 52 card deck, plus a Joker.

Rules

The object of the game is to form two winning poker hands from the seven cards that are dealt: a hand of five cards, called the "High hand", and a hand of two cards, called the "Low Hand". The ‘High hand’ value is to be higher than the ‘Low hand’.

Card comparison is made according to the regular poker rules (please see the “Poker combinations” table).

How to Play

Before the hand starts, a player should make a bet. Minimum bet is1, maximum -1000. Click “Deal” button to start.

A player is dealt 7 cards that he splits into two separate hands. The first hand, which must consist of 5 cards, is called the ‘High Hand’. The second hand, which consists of the remaining two cards, is called the ‘Low Hand’.

The object is for a player to beat dealer collecting the winning card combinations for both hands. The ‘High hand’ value is to be higher than the ‘Low hand’.

If both of the player’s hands beat dealer’s, the player wins 1 to 1 minus a 5% commission. If both of the dealer’s hands beat player’s, the player loses. If only one of the player’s two hands win, the round results as Tie and player get back his bet. In case that one of the dealer’s hands equals to the corresponding player’s hand, dealer is a winner.
