Pai Gow Poker
Pai Gow Poker is a great casino game which is an interesting combination of Poker and the ancient Chinese game of Pai Gow. Itís the only card game at Slot Power that uses a deck of 53 cards Ė the 53rd card is the Joker.
Youíre playing against the dealer and be competing for the highest poker hands. Youíll both receive 7 cards each, but the dealerís cards wonít be revealed until youíve sorted your cards into a 5 card Highest hand and a 2 card Second Highest hand. If both your hands are higher than the dealerís two hands then youíve won. If you win one hand but lose the other the game is considered a push and your bet is returned.
If youíre dealt the Joker you can only use it to complete a Straight, Flush, Straight Flush or Royal Flush. However, the Joker has equal value to an Ace if itís used in conjunction with other Aces, so you can use it to make a pair of Aces.
It might seem a bit complicated but donít worry thereís help. Slot Power have an option, House Way, which will automatically divide your cards into the best hands Ė or you can select manually, whichever way suits you best!
