Pai Gow is a poker game that is played with a standard deck of cards plus a joker, which means 53 cards are in the deck during each game. The aim is to take your 7 dealt cards to form two hands; both of which will need to beat the dealer to award a prize.
How to Play Pai Gow
You'll need to choose a bet from the available chips at the bottom of the screen. You can use multiple versions of each one if you want to create a custom bet. Once you have done this you can start the game by pressing the 'Deal' button.
The dealer will issue seven cards, from which you must create your strongest 4 card and 2 card hand. The dealer will then reveal his hand and if both of yours are better will payout the pot. The main thing to remember here is that both hands must be winners, so card choice is key.
The Joker acts as a wild card which means it can create doubles when uses in a two card hand or many other winning combinations when used in a four card hand.
