How To Play Pai Gow Poker & Side Bets

So you want to learn how to play Pai Gow Poker? You've come to the right place. The best Las Vegas Pai Gow is located right here at LVH Casino at Westgate Las Vegas Resort. The objective is simple. Each player receives seven cards. The players then arrange their cards into two hands (one of five cards and another of two cards) using traditional poker rankings. The highest two-card hand would be a pair of Aces. The highest five-card hand would be five Aces. Ultimately, players strive for the five-card hand to rank higher than its two-card counterpart. Fortune Pai Gow Poker offers two side bets, Fortune Bonus, based on the value of the seven cards that are dealt. A straight or better payoffs are based on the ranking of the hand; Envy Bonus, paid when a player has a 4-of-a-kind or better.
