Jim Green’s guide to Pai Gow Poker

If you want a more straightforward guide to the basic rules of PaiGow Poker then you should consult the how to guide. I’ll try to explain as I go along but don’t rely on it.

Like pretty much every casino game, you start by ponying up your wager. If you win you get 1.95 times your bet back. A tie (which happens quite a lot) returns your wager and if you lose the casino keeps your money. The large amount of ties in this game mean you can bet bigger than you would at blackjack (generating more wagering action for the casino and clearing your bonus while still looking like a good customer).

You get seven cards and have to arrange them into a five card and a two card hand.
