Pai Gow Poker with Vegas Technology software uses a standard deck of cards and a joker has been included, so you play with 53 cards, but the joker isn't a real joker in the usual wild card fashion.

It can only be used to complete a straight, flush, straight flush or royal flush. Otherwise the Joker is treated as an Ace.

Pia Gow online poker wagering can start with several chip sizes, like $1, $5, $25 and $100, for you to choose from.

Pai Gow poker with Vegas Tech software can be played with $1 per hand, up to the maximum of $300 per hand.

In Pai Gow Poker, you're dealt 7 cards face up. From these 7 cards you have to make 2 hands, one with 5 cards as the high hand, and one with 2 cards as the low hand.

The object of the Pai Gow Poker game is to have the highest cards in both hands. The dealer does the same thing. If your High Hand and your Low Hand is higher than the dealer's, you win both hands.

You win or lose each hand independent of each other. The value of the Low Hand can not be larger than the value of the High Hand.

Pai Gow online poker hands are ranked according to standard poker rules with one exception: The Ace-2-3-4-5 straight is the second highest straight. Straights rank, from highest to lowest:

  1. Ace-K-Q-J-10
  2. Ace-2-3-4-5
  3. K-Q-J-10-9
  4. 6-5-4-3-2

Also the two-card hand cannot have a flush since a flush requires five cards, so the best 2 card hand would be a pair of Aces.

While playing Pai Gow poker, I have a tendency for overkill...

If I'm dealt a full house and a jack-ten, I want to make the full house my high hand and the jack ten the low, since the odds are I'll definitely win the high hand.

But the best move would actually be to split the full house, leaving the three of a kind in the high hand and the pair in the low hand. Odds are still higher on winning both hands in this way. I guess I'm guilty of overkill just a bit!
