Pai Gow Poker is a modern game with old origins. Based on the old Chinese tile game and the current American version of poker, Pai Gow poker bands together the far east with the wild west in an excellent game for beginner level gamblers.

Pai Gow is a poker game that puts the player versus the croupier, unlike nearly all other poker games that players play against other gamblers. By gambling against the dealer, new players do not have to be concerned about other, more knowledgeable individuals winning their $$$$.

One more Pai Gow advantage is the relatively leisurely game play, beginners are able to take their time and scheme while not needing to make quick choices.

It is also easier to bet on for an extended time with basically a little amount of money seeing as, to lose, each of your hands needs to be under both of the casino’s hands.

Pai Gow is played with 53 cards; the familiar 52-card common deck and a single joker. The gambler is given seven cards face up and the house is dealt seven cards face down.

A five card hand and a 2 card hand need to be made from the seven cards, the five card hand has to be better than the two card hand. To succeed, a player needs both of his hand values to be better than the dealer’s.
