How to Play Bonus Pai Gow Poker
Before you start to play Pai Gow Poker online, you must place a bet by selecting your chip size and then clicking on the “Bet” circle; each click increases your bet by one chip. Once you are ready to play, just click the Deal button. You and the dealer each receive seven cards; yours are face-up, the dealer’s are face-down. Now you must split your seven cards into two hands: a “Highest” hand of five cards and a “2nd Highest” hand of two cards. You can do this by clicking on the two cards that you want to place into your 2nd Highest hand, or you can have the computer do it for you by clicking the House Way button.
After you have split your hand, you click the Play button and the dealer’s cards are turned over. If your Highest hand beats the dealer’s Highest hand, and your 2nd Highest hand beats the dealer’s 2nd Highest hand, you win the game. If only one of your hands beats the dealer’s corresponding hand, the game is a tie.
Of course, the cards you are dealt is a matter of chance. But how you split your hand is a matter of Pai Gow Poker strategy. It is this mix of luck and strategy that makes Pai Gow Poker such an intriguing online poker game.
