The Goal of the Game
Pai Gow Poker is one of the most classic casino games. The goal is to win with two hands, one with two cards and the other with five, against the dealer’s hand.
How to play Pai Gow Poker
This game which combines poker with another traditional Chinese game, Pai Gow, is played with seven cards per player. These seven cards are divided into a five-card hand and a two-card hand. The first thing you should do is place your bet. To do this, click on one of the chips to bet and take it to the betting area in the center of the table, marked with the word Bet. Click as many times as you want to leave the number of chips you want.
Then click on Deal to have the cards dealt. They will give you seven. Five of them have to stay in the “highest” hand and two in the “2nd highest“. The five-card hand must always be higher than the two-card hand. When you have it, press Done. If you do not know how to separate the cards, click House Way so that the system itself does it.
The dealer’s cards will be shown to you. If both hands are higher than yours, you lose. If one of your hands is higher and the other is lower, it is considered a tie and your bet is returned. If your two hands are better, you win. If there is an exact tie, then the point goes to the dealer (they have this advantage). You can also use Rebet if in one round you want to repeat the bet of the previous one.
Keep in mind that if there is something you do not master, this online version always gives you the possibility to consult the rules of the game as many times as you want. Even within its Help section (in the drop-down at the top right), you can consult the rules of the original game to learn more.
As for the hands, the five-card one will be governed by the rules of poker and its ranking of winning combinations. Thus, you can seek to form Royal Flush, Straight Flush, Poker, Straight, Full House, Three of a Kind, Double pairs, and Pairs. When in doubt, always keep in mind that the five-card hand must be the highest, so if you only have one pair, it should go to this hand.
