Pai Gow Poker Basics


Using the standard poker hand ranking methods (see below), the players must organize their cards so that the five card hand is of higher value than the two card hand. If both hands beat the banker's two hands, the player wins. If both hands lose, the player loses. If one hand is higher and the other lower, the hand is a draw or push. Finally, if both hands are exactly equal in value to the banker's two hands, the banker wins.

In calculating the hand ranking, the joker is used as an Ace or to complete any straight or any flush. Bets are placed between the banker (which may be the House or another player acting as banker) and the other players. The House charges a 5% commission on all winning wagers. There is no commission charged for tied or losing wagers. If you require assistance, the dealer or supervisor will be happy to assist you in setting the highest possible potential ranking hand according to House Ways. However, we cannot be responsible for any losses that may be incurred. The order of hands from highest to lowest is as follows:

Poker Hand Rankings

1. 5 Aces (including joker)
2. Royal Flush
3. Straight Flush (A,2,3,4,5 highest ranking straight flush)
4. 4 of a Kind
5. Full House
6. Flush
7. Straight (A2,3,4,5 the 2nd highest straight)
8. Three Of A Kind
9. Two Pair
10. One Pair
11. High Card
