How to Play Pai Gow Poker
the hands are a push, which will result in having your bet refunded
back. You also have just as good of a chance of winning your
hands than the dealer does. How does the casino make any money
then? Well the casino will charge a 5% commission whenever you
win both poker hands. Experienced Pai Gow Poker players, and
sometimes even beginners, can play for hours with only a small hit
to their bankroll.
Before you start playing
you will need to select how much you want to wager.
When you are ready you will need to click on the deal
button, so that your
seven playing cards can be dealt.
Now it is time to set up your
two hands. Click on the two cards you want to use for your
second highest hand and then click on the split button. Make
sure your hand is set up probably or you will lose on both of your
The proper way to set up your hand
is to make sure your highest hand has a better poker hand than your
second highest hand. As long as you get this right, your hands
won't be voided, but there are a few tips that can increase the
chances of you coming out ahead. You should try to win both
hands whenever possible, but if not try to have a lock on one of the
two hands so you won't lose. Some example hands include;
Hand 1 = AAK9984, the best split would be
AA994 and K8. Sort them this way to give you two pair for your
highest hand and a reasonable second highest hand. You might
lose on one of these hands, but you should win the other hand.
You might be even to win them both.
Hand 1 = AAJJ753, the best split would be
AA753 and JJ, because otherwise your second highest hand would be a
75 which would almost be a guaranteed loser and your two pair might
lose as well. The pair of jacks for the second highest hand is
almost guaranteed to win and the pair of Aces might win as well.
Hand 2 = AK99744, the best split would be
99447 and AK, because the AK is almost as good as a pair and you
still have two pair for your best hand. Otherwise you would
have to only a small pair for the highest hand and your second
highest hand would only be marginally better than the AK.
Some things to remember is that
there are 53 cards in the deck. There is a regular 52 card
deck plus a Joker. The Joker can only be used for a Royal
Flush, Straight Flush, Flush or a Straight, otherwise it is used as
an Ace. Pai Gow Poker is great for maintaining your bankroll. If you structure your hands probably you should be
able to win at least one of the two hands most of the time.
Also if the dealer and the player set up their highest and second
highest hands so that they have the same poker hand, then the dealer
will win the poker hand that ties.
The bonus game,
if available, can add a bit of
excitement to the game of Pai Gow Poker. Your bankroll will go up
and down a lot more in the bonus game, but it does add a lot of fun
to this game. You will be paid out according to your seven
card hand. The top hand is a seven card straight flush, which
will pay you out at 8000 times your wager. There is a variety
of prizes for different hands. You must have a five card
straight or better to be rewarded a prize. That may seem
somewhat tough, but you get seven cards, so you will have two extra
cards to use to make that hand. The bonus game can be found
inside casinos running on
