Pai gow is a popular and exciting card game that combines the Chinese domino game of gai gow with poker. It can be played in both online casinos and land-based gambling venues. It is one of the online casino games that is really worth checking out if you're a fan of skill games.

Online Pai Gow poker is played with a deck of 53 cards, consisting of the 52 standard card deck plus one Joker. The objective of online Pai Gow poker is to make a better set of hands than the dealer. To determine who wins the hands must be compared. If both of the players hands beat both of the dealers pai gow hands then the player wins. If only one of the two hands beats the dealer's then it is a tie. And if both the player's pai gow hands are weaker than the dealer's he loses.

To start the game, online players should place their wager by clicking on the chips of the desired denomination. The player then clicks on the “deal button”. He is dealt seven cards face up and the dealer is dealt seven cards face down. The player has to prepare two hands, one of five cards and the other of two cards. The hands are judged according to poker hand rankings. The two-card hand has to have a lower hand ranking than the five-card hand. The joker becomes a wild card in order to achieve a straight, a flush or a straight flush. Otherwise it is used as an ace. The player clicks on the two cards that he wants in the two-card hand. These cards get highlighted. The player then clicks on the “split” button to split the hands as per his selection.

In online Pai Gow poker almost simultaneously several steps then automatically take place. The dealer’s cards are turned face up and arranged into a five-card hand and a two-card hand as per a specified procedure referred to as the “house way”. The player’s five-card hand is matched with the dealer’s five-card hand and the player’s two-card hand is independently matched with the dealer’s two-card hand. The screen shows which hand wins in each case. In the event the dealer’s hand ties with the player’s hand the dealer wins. If the player wins both hands then his payout is at 1:1 less a commission charged by the online casino. This commission is usually 5% but varies from online casino to online casino. If the player wins one hand and loses the other then the bet pushes and the player’s wager is given back to him. If the player loses both the hands then he gets nothing.
