FORTUNE PAI GOW POKER Fortune Pai Gow Poker is played with a standard 52-card deck plus one Joker. The Joker can only be used as an Ace or as the fifth card in a straight, flush, straight flush, or royal flush. After you receive your seven cards, you must split them into two hands, a five-card hand and a two-card hand. The five-card hand must always rank higher than the two-card hand. The object of the game is to have your high hand beat the dealer’s high hand, and have your second hand beat the dealer’s second hand. Each five-card hand is ranked according to the standard poker hand hierarchy. Remember that because of the Joker, you have the potential to have five Aces, which beats a royal flush. Your two-card hand can either be a pair or no pair, therefore, your highest possible two-card hand would be a pair of Aces. PAYOFF You must win both hands outright to receive a payout. The house wins if both of the dealer’s hands are winners, if one hand wins and the other hand is a draw, or if both hands are a draw. Any other combination results in a “push”. There is a 5% commission on all player wins. All winning wagers are paid out at even money (1 to 1). HAND A RRANGEMENTS the back hand (high) has five cards, the front hand (low or second hand) has two cards. Cards are set according to poker rankings. (high) wins. (high) ties (push).
