Face Up Pai Gow Poker is played against the dealer. This variation offers two optional wagers, Ace High Bonus and Fortune Bonus. As in regular Pai Gow Poker, the players and the dealer receive seven cards but the dealer’s cards are dealt face up. There is no commission collected when the player beats the dealer, but when the dealer plays Ace-High, the player automatically pushes.
Ace High Bonus is an optional wager. The Ace High wager wins if the dealer is forced to play an Ace-High Pai Gow. The Ace High wager may be more than the Pai Gow Poker wager. The Ace High Bonus wager is determined independent of the Pai Gow Poker wager.
|Dealer + Player Ace-High||40 to 1|
|Dealer Ace-High, with Joker||15 to 1|
|Dealer Ace-High, No Joker||5 to 1|
Fortune Bonus is an optional wager. If any five-card hand out of seven cards qualifies for a Fortune Bonus payout, it wins regardless of the outcome of the regular Pai
Gow Poker wager.
