Casino Games - Pai Gow

pai gow casino

Pai Gow is a casino card game that’s popular in many gambling sites, whether land-based or online. This game is one of the youngest of all card games, having been created about three decades ago by Fred Wolf and Sam Torosian who based it on an ancient game by the same name played in China.


History


The modern Pai Gow game traces its origins to a poker game played during the Song Dynasty in China. The dynasty lasted between 960 and 1279. Centuries later, in the 1980s, the modern version of the game was made in America. Today, the game is played in casinos throughout the world.


Rules


The game is played using tiles, which are first shuffled on a table and then arranged into eight woodpiles of four tiles per pile. Every player is then given a stack of piles, which they then use to form a front and a rear hand. A player wins when both their front hand and their rear hand beat
the dealers.


Odds


The probability of hitting a 7-card straight flush is 1 in 5 million.


Notable winners


Alexa, from Dublin, Calif won $209,494 in 2015
