Double-hand Poker is a cutting-edge game with old origins. Founded on the ancient Chinese tile game and the current American version of poker, Pai Gow poker combines the eastern with the west in an awesome game for beginning level players.

Pai Gow is a poker game that pits the player vs. the casino, unlike the majority of other poker games that gamblers wager with other gamblers. By wagering against the dealer, beginner players don’t need to be concerned about other, more skillful gamblers taking their money.

An additional Pai Gow edge is the relatively leisurely game pace, novices can take their time and strategize without needing to make quick choices.

It is also much simpler to play for an extended time with only a tiny bit of cash since, to lose, each of your hands has to be lower than each of the houses hands.

Pai Gow uses 53 cards; the normal 52-card basic deck and a single joker. The player is assigned 7 cards faces showing and the dealer is dealt seven cards face down.

One 5 card hand and one two card hand need to be put together from the 7 cards dealt, the 5 card hand has to be better than the two card hand. To win, a player is required to have both of his hand values to be higher than the dealer’s.
