Pai Gow Poker, straight hand in poker

Fan Favorite: Pai Gow Poker

When you play a card game at a casino, you may stick with the ones you know, but what’s more fun than learning a new game and strategy to help you win big? Pai Gow Poker is a great game if you have a small bankroll, but have the patience to learn the strategy.  

Pai Gow Poker was created right here in California and is a favorite among our players.  

Pai Gow Poker is also called Double Hand poker. Each player receives 7 cards and you must then split them between 2 and 5 card poker hands. The only requirement of the game is that the 5 card hand must outrank your 2 card hand. You 2 card hand plays the Dealer’s 2 card hand, and your 5 card hand plays against the 5 card Dealer’s hand. The object of the game is to set your hands so that they defeat the Dealer’s hands. The good news is that at the California Grand Casino, the Jokers are fully wild to help you complete everything from straights and flushes to four of a kinds, giving you an extra edge. 

Pai Gow Poker is a game that was dedicated to bring you a fun challenge and help build your bankroll. To learn more about how to play the game, visit our Pai Gow Poker page. You will find optimal strategies and gameplay at our award winning Bay Area card club.
