Pai Gow Poker is a casino game which is a variation of the Chinese domino game Pai Gow. Pai Gow is played with a deck of 53 cards, with a joker thrown in to provide an extra twist. The game is played one-on-one with the dealer pit against the player(s). Players need to form the best two-hand combination out of the seven cards dealt to them in order to beat the dealer.
Pai Gow is known as a slow-paced, leisurely game and the social atmosphere around a Pai Gow table is quite unique. While Pai Gow is not offered at every casino, it is available at most major casinos in Las Vegas and is also very popular on the Californian coast.
The online version of Pai Gow has also been making waves in the remote gaming industry and more and more online casinos are currently offering the game to excited players.
