Golden Palace Pai Gow Poker

Pai Gow Poker is a combination of Poker and an ancient Chinese game Pai Gow. If you are not familiar with Pai Gow Rules, read them here.

Player receives seven cards, which he/she splits into two hands - a five card hand and a two card hand. The object is to beat the dealer.

  • First, place a bet by selecting a chip and clicking on the Bet area in the middle of the table. Place multiple chips if you want. To remove a chip from the bet field, right click on it.
  • Click on Deal.
  • You receive seven cards. Leave five of them in the "Highest" hand and select two that go to the "2nd Highest" hand. To send a card to the "2nd Highest" hand, just click on it. To send it back to the "Highest" hand, click on it again. The five-card hand (or the "Highest") must always outrank the two-card hand (or the "2nd Highest"). You can also click the House Way button to let the computer select your hands in a certain manner (see the Rules for more info).

  • Click on Done (if you did not press House Way).
  • The dealer's cards are revealed. If both the dealer's hands are higher than yours, you lose your bet. If one of you hands is higher and the other is lower, the round results as a push and your bet is returned. If both your hands are higher, you win even money on your bet (1 to 1) minus 5% bank commission. In case of an exact match between hands (called a copy) the tie goes to the banker.
  • Click on New Game if you want to play another round. Place a bet again as described above, or click on the Rebet button to place the same bet as in the previous round.
