Pai Gow Poker is a cutting-edge game with ancient ancestry. Built on the old Chinese domino game and the modern American adaptation of poker, Pai Gow poker bands together the far east with the west in an awesome game for beginner level gamblers.

Pai Gow is a poker game that puts the gambler vs. the croupier, not like most other poker games that gamblers play against other players. By betting against the dealer, new players don’t need to fret about any other, more advanced gamblers taking their moolla.

One more Pai Gow advantage is the fairly leisurely game pace, rookies will be able to take their time and scheme while not having to make quick choices.

It is also easier to gamble on for a long time with basically a little amount of money since, to lose, each of your hands needs to be lower than each of the dealer’s hands.

Pai Gow uses 53 cards; the customary 52-card common deck and one joker. The gambler is given 7 cards face up and the house gets seven cards face down.

One five card hand and one two card hand must be put together from the seven cards dealt, the 5 card hand must be better than the two card hand. To succeed, a player is required to have both of his hand totals to be better than the casino’s.
