After you place your wager, you’ll be dealt seven cards that you’ll divide into two piles, one set of five cards and one set of two cards. The goal is to create two separate poker hands that are better than the dealer’s. Hands are ranked according to the standard accepted poker rules, with two exceptions: The Ace, 2, 3,4, 5 straight, which, in Pai Gow Poker, is the second highest straight.
The Joker is added to the deck, serving as an additional Ace in most cases, but can also be used as wild to complete a five-card flush, a straight, or a straight flush.
