Pai Gow Poker Online. Play with a £1000 Bonus
Pai Gow Poker has always been a firm favourite in Las Vegas, Macau and Monaco and it is popular too online.
Pai Gow Poker is a card game played between you and the casino. You play with a deck of 53 cards (a standard deck PLUS a joker), and you are both given 7 cards, from which you make a High Hand and a Low Hand.
Your 7 cards are split into a 5-card High Hand and a 2-card Low Hand (the Low Hand can´t have a higher value than your High Hand). Then using standard poker hand rankings, you try and beat the dealer with both hands. If you have only one winning hand, your bet is pushed. If your hand is matched by the Dealer, the Dealer wins.
You place a bonus bet at the beginning of the game. If your 7-cards make 3 of a Kind or above, you net a bonus payout according to the published Payout Rules (see some example below).
Normally, there is an automatic option for picking your Low hand and High hand- just click on it and your hand will separated out in the optimum way.
If you split your hand yourself, remember both hands need to beat the dealer. Careful about splitting pairs, but you might need to if you have no other high cards.
The Joker card can be used as a Wild to complete a Straight, a Flush, a Straight Flush or a Royal Flush. Otherwise, it is scored as an Ace.
