How to Play Pai Gow Poker Table

Using a single deck of standard 52-card deck and one joker (The joker can be used as an ace or a wild card to complete a straight, a flush or straight flush only), you are dealt 7 cards. The cards are split into two hands: a two-card front hand and a five-card back hand. You can split your hand however you like, but you must follow one simple rule: your back hand must be ranked higher than your front hand.

To win, your hands must rank higher than the house's front and back. If one of your hands wins and one loses, the hand is a push.

After placing your bet, click the "Deal" button to start the hand. You will be dealt seven cards. Drag and drop the cards to the front and back hand holders on the right of the table. You can rearrange your split by dragging your cards back to the left. Once your hand is set, click the "Done" button. The dealer will reveal the house hands. Your hands will be compared to the house hands. Remember, you must win both your front and back hand to get paid.

Copies If your hands are identical to one of the house's hands, the hands are said to be a copy. The house wins all copies.

Note: two straights are not necessarily a copy. If you have a 7, 8, 9, 10, J straight and the house has a 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 straight, you win because your straight is higher than that of the house's.
