Pai Gow Poker Fun

Posted on 18 Jun 2011 | Casino Games

Pai gow poker is a fun casino table game that we think needs more attention. We find it to be pretty relaxing, so read on if you want us to convince you to give it a try.

Join Win Palace today if you want access to a massive range of casino games, as well as $2,000 in welcome bonuses.

First of all, how can a casino game be relaxing? Well, pai gow poker is very slow. That doesn’t appeal to everyone, but we think it can be nice to play a slow game on a Sunday afternoon.

The game is so slow because of how often you will tie with the dealer. In pai gow poker, you have a 5 card hand and a 2 card hand, and you must beat the dealer on both in order to win. You must also lose on both hands (ties on each hand go to the dealer) in order to lose your bet.

As you get to choose how you arrange your hands, with the exception that the 5 card hand must be worth more than the 2 card hand, you will find yourself frequently winning on one while losing on the other. The game has such a relaxed pace that casinos generally take a 5% commission on your wins (and sometimes on ties as well) in order make up for the extra resources they need to beat you.

What makes pai gow poker so fun for us is when you need to choose between a stronger 5 card hand with a weak 2 card hand, or a slightly weak 5 card hand in order to play a very strong 2 card hand. It’s the strategy that makes it interesting and the fact that you can play for hours on a fairly modest bankroll.

Join Win Palace now to give pai gow poker a try for yourself, but remember that it is a slow game, so you won’t be getting as many hands per hour as you would with blackjack.
