Double-hand Poker is a cutting-edge game with old origins. Built on the old Chinese domino game and the current American variation of poker, Pai Gow poker joins the far east with the western in a wonderful game for starting players.

Pai Gow is a poker game that puts the gambler vs. the house, not like almost all other poker games that gamblers compete with other gamblers. By playing against the dealer, starting players do not have to worry about other, more advanced people taking their moolla.

A further Pai Gow advantage is the relatively leisurely game play, rookies are able to take their time and plan while not having to make hasty choices.

It’s also easier to play for a very long time with basically a little bit of money after all, to not win, both of your hands has to be under both of the houses hands.

Pai Gow is played with 53 cards; the customary 52-card standard deck and a single joker. The gambler is assigned seven cards faces showing and the casino is given seven cards face down.

One five card hand and one 2 card hand need to be made from the seven cards, the five card hand must be better than the 2 card hand. To win, a player needs both of his hand values to be higher than the dealer’s.
