How to Play Pai-Gow Poker

The player begins by placing a wager on the Pai-Gow table. To do this, click on the chips at the bottom center of the game screen. The wager amount can be increased by left-clicking on the chips at the bottom center of the game screen. The wager amount is decreased by right-clicking on the chips.

Once the wager is placed, you need to click on the "Deal" button. The dealer deals seven cards to you face up and seven cards to himself face down. One standard deck of 52 cards plus one joker is used.

The joker is not wild but can be used only as an ace or as a card to complete a straight, a flush, a straight flush or a royal flush.

After you have received your seven cards, you must form two hands. The low hand must contain two cards and the high hand five cards. To do this, you must select the two cards that you wish to be in the low hand by left-clicking on them. Cards may be unselected by clicking them again. Selected cards will shift up out of the line of your cards on the game screen.

Note: When forming hands, the rank of the five-card high hand must be higher than the rank of the two-card low hand. If this is not true a messagebox will be displayed asking you to re-split your hand. Once you have set both hands, clicking on the "Done" button will end the hand. The dealer will split his cards according to fixed house rules and will then compare your hand rank with his own. To win the wager, your low and high hand must both rank higher than the dealer's low and high hand, respectively. If one of your hands is higher in rank than the dealer's and the other is lower or equal, this is a tie and your wager is returned. Otherwise, your player's wager is lost. If both hands are identical, the dealer also wins.

The hand rankings are as follows (from highest to lowest):

Hand Description
Four aces + Joker A, A, A, A, Joker
Royal Flush A, K, Q, J, 10 (all same suit)
Straight Flush K, Q, J, 10, 9 (all same suit) to A, 2, 3, 4, 5 (all same suit)
Four of a Kind Any four of the same number or face cards
Full House [Three of a Kind] + [any pair]
Flush Any combination of cards but all same suit
Straight A, K, Q, J, 10 to A, 2, 3, 4, 5
Three of a Kind Any three of the same number or face cards
Two Pairs One Pair + One Pair
One Pair Any two of same number or face cards
High Card None of the hands listed above. Your highest card, ranked from highest to lowest as follows: A, K, Q, J, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2

Note: When comparing two high hands or two low hands which are of identical poker and hand rank, the hand which contains the highest ranking card shall be considered the higher ranking hand. If the two hands are of identical rank after this comparison, the hands are considered a copy hand and the dealer wins.
