You will be dealt seven cards face-up in online Pai-Gow poker. The dealer will receive seven cards face-down. The dealer's cards will not be revealed until you have finished your action. Split your cards into two separate hands: High hand and Low hand.
Your High hand must consist of five cards and contain your best ranking poker hand. Your Low hand must consist of two cards and be lower in rank than your High hand. Online Pai-Gow poker will not allow you to create a low hand that is of higher value than the high hand.
The dealer's hand will be arranged in a High and Low hand as well. The dealer's hand will be divided according to Fair Way Rules. Your High hand and the dealer's High hand will be compared against each other, as will both Low hands. A winning wager pays 1:1 less a 5% commission.
No commission is applied to losing or tied hands. You win if both your hands outrank the dealer's hands. The House wins if both the dealer's hands outrank the player's hands or if one of the dealer's hands outranks the player's corresponding hand and the other hand is a tie or if both hands are a tie.
It is a push (or tie) if you win one hand, but lose the other hand or if you win one hand and the other hand is a tie.
- Hands are ranked according to standard poker rules with one exception. For straights and straight flushes, A-2-3-4-5 is the second highest hand after A-K-Q-J-10. A hand with 6-5-4-3-2 becomes the lowest possible straight or straight flush.
- The joker acts as a wild card only to complete a straight, flush or straight flush. In all other cases, the joker is used as an Ace.
- Dealer hands will always be played according Fair Way Rules.
In the event of unusual activity in the software or if outside intervention is detected all wagers will be placed under review for further determination.
