Pai Gow Poker is the Chinese Casino game that pits you against the dealer in the ultimate game of skill and chance.
The aim of the game is to beat the dealer with both of your hands – the five-card ‘High Hand’ and the two-card ‘Low Hand’. It is up to you to divide your original seven-card hand into two hands that both have a decent chance of winning.
The unique feature of this game is the side bets that pay out win multipliers of between x2 and x5,000 across the various Poker hands.

How to Play
You and the dealer will then each be dealt seven cards - these must then be divided into a five-card High Hand and a two-card Low Hand.
Your hands must be divided into one five-card hand, called a High Hand, and another two-card hand, called a Low Hand.
Since the target of the game is to beat the dealer with both hands, you will want to ensure that both of your hands have a decent chance of winning.
How to Win
If both of your hands beat the dealer’s hands then you will win at a ratio of 1:1, minus a 5% 'House fee' that is taken by the casino.
If one of your hands beats the dealer then you will get your stake returned, and if you lose both hands then you lose your full stake.
The Joker is not a true wild card in Pai Gow Poker.
The Joker can only be used to complete a Straight, Flush, Straight Flush or Royal Flush - otherwise the Joker is treated as an Ace.
You will also have the chance to place a bonus bet before the cards have been dealt.
The bonus payout will be determined by the seven card hand you are originally dealt, before you split them into a High and Low Hand.
If you hold a named poker hand then the win will be displayed in a banner with the winning combination and payout odds.
Your payout will be displayed in the win box at the end of the game.
The maximum payout available in Pai Gow Poker is £50,000.
