Pai Gow is a poker game that puts the player vs. the croupier, not like almost all other poker games that gamblers compete with other players. By wagering against the dealer, starting players do not have to be concerned about other, more knowledgeable gamblers taking their $$$$.

It is also simpler to bet on for an extended time with just a tiny amount of cash seeing as, to lose, both of your hands has to be under each of the houses hands.

Pai Gow is played with 53 cards; the normal 52-card basic deck and a single joker. The gambler is assigned 7 cards faces showing and the croupier receives 7 cards face down.

One 5 card hand and one two card hand need to be made from the 7 cards, the 5 card hand has to be better than the 2 card hand. To win, a player needs both of his hand totals to be larger than the dealer’s.
