Pai Gow Poker
Dominoes and the game of poker are the proud parents of Pai Gow Poker, which was spawned during the Song Dynasty of 1120 AD. The Slots.lv version of Pai Gow Poker fuses the far east and the west to create a game that’s fun for everyone.
It’s a game that’s played with a standard 52-card deck and a wild joker added into the mix for that little dash of extra enjoyment. The aim of Pai Gow Poker is to get the best five-card and two-card hand. If you can beat the dealer with both hands, victory and cash shall be yours.

HOW TO PLAY
The player selects the amount they would like to wager (from $1 to $500) and clicks Deal. The maximum wager is $500. Seven cards, face-up, are dealt to the player and seven cards, face-down, are given to the dealer. The player selects two cards to make up their two-card hand by clicking on their choices (keeping in mind that their five-card hand must be stronger than their two-card hand) then clicks the Split button.
The one with the best two hands wins the game (standard poker card rankings apply). If the player loses one of two hands it’s considered a push and their wager is returned. The dealer wins any tie.
The strategy of the game involves deciding what two cards to give up without hurting the five-card hand. There’s also a joker available in this game that works as a wild card that can complete straights or flushes in any other case, it counts as an ace.
