About Pai Gow Poker and Playing the House Way

Pai Gow Poker is a relatively new poker game, and has become popular with online card players. The game is played on a virtual felt casino table, and is played against a banker. Players can place bets in increments of $0.10.

Players may choose to have their hands arranged in the House Way. This means that the casino software will arrange your hand for you in the way that it should best be played, with matching cards placed next to each other. Once you have chosen to play the House Way, the hand will be played according to the standard rules of the game, and you cannot choose to change the way your hand is arranged. Although players may want to make changes, in the long run, playing the House Way is likely to bring in more wins.

Since Pai Gow Poker has such a low house edge, there are many cases in which you cannot use this game when fulfilling wagering requirements for various bonuses. In cases when it can be used, it does not count as much as other online casino games, such as slots, which count 100% towards play through requirements.

Pai Gow Poker is played with a 53-card deck made up of the standard 52 cards and one joker.

Pai Gow Poker Rules

The game is played according to the standard Pai Gow Poker rules.

  • Players place an initial bet.
  • Seven face-down cards are dealt.
  • Two separate hands, one of five cards, the High Hand, and one of two cards, the Low Hand must be created out of the seven cards. The High Hand should be the stronger hand.
  • Jokers can only be used as an Ace, unless they are being used to help form either a Straight or a Flush, such as a King in order to create a hand of five Kings.
  • The High Hand is compared to the dealer’s High Hand, and the Low Hand is compared to the dealer’s Low Hand. Winning both hands pays even money. Winning one hand is a push. Losing both hands is a loss.
