Online Pai Gow Poker is a variant of poker, in which every player does not play against the other players participating in the game, but against the dealer. In this interesting card game each player, including the dealer, receives seven cards and with these seven cards he must make up two hands.
First hand consists of five cards and the second hand consists of two cards. Every player’s objective in the game of Online Pai Gow Poker is to beat the two hands, which the dealer has formed from his seven cards. Online Pai Gow Poker is played with a 53 card deck, which includes one joker.
This joker can be used to complete a straight, a flush or a straight-flush, but also the joker can be treated as an ace. In the beginning of the game each player is dealt a seven card hand and from these seven cards the player must create two hands – one five-card and one two-card hand. The dealer is also dealt seven cards and he also splits them into a five-card hand and a two-card hand.
In order to beat the dealer, you must beat both his hands with your hands. It means that your five-card hand must beat the dealer’s five-card hand and your two-card hand must beat his two-card hand. In case when you win only one of the hands, the bet is pushed.
It means that you don’t win or lose. In case when the dealer wins both hands the bet is lost. Hand rankings in Online Pai Gow Poker: 1. Five Aces this is the highest possible hand. 2. Royal Flush 3.
