Double-hand Poker is a modern game with old origins. Built on the old Chinese tile game and the modern American version of poker, Pai Gow poker combines the east with the west in a great game for new gamblers.

Pai Gow is a poker game that puts the gambler vs. the croupier, not like nearly all other poker games that players wager with other players. By wagering against the dealer, beginner players do not have to be concerned about other, more knowledgeable players taking their $$$$.

One more Pai Gow edge is the relatively slow game pace, newcomers can take their time and scheme without having to make hasty decisions.

It is also simpler to enjoy for a very long time with just a little bit of cash since, to lose, each of your hands must be lower than both of the houses hands.

Pai Gow is played with 53 cards; the customary 52-card basic deck and one joker. The gambler is dealt 7 cards faces showing and the house gets 7 cards face down.

One 5 card hand and one 2 card hand need to be made from the 7 cards dealt, the 5 card hand must be higher than the two card hand. To win, a player needs both of his hand values to be higher than the casino’s.
