Logo for the game Face Up Pai Gow Poker

Face Up Pai Gow Poker is an exciting new variation on the game of Pai Gow, or Double Hand Poker. The object of the game is to make a five-card hand and a two-card hand that ranks higher than the player-dealer’s five-card hand and two-card hand.

What makes Face Up Pai Gow different is that the player-dealer’s hand is shown first before the other players set their two hands.  When the player-dealer has a seven-card Ace-high hand, then all player hands will automatically push (tie) and the players’ base game wagers will be returned to the players.

Players can also make a bonus wager on the player-dealer having an Ace-high hand, as well as make a Fortune Bet.  The Joker is partially wild and can be used as an Ace or to complete any Straight, Flush, or Straight Flush.
