The free PaiGow poker game above can also be played for real money at Cherry Casino. Cherry Casino's Pai Gow poker is played around a 3-D interface table with bright Eastern motifs and good audio of clicking chips and cards being dealt. Pop up text boxes will guide players if, for example, they are not following the rules of the game. To begin the game, players make a wager out of the five possible denominations ($1, $5, $10, $20, $100). The player and the dealer are dealt seven cards using the DEAL button. The player then needs to arrange his cards into two cards - one consisting of five cards and one consisting of two hands.
The five-card hand is then ranked according to the rules of poker. The exception is that the second highest straight is a combination of Ace, 2, 3, 4, 5. The lowest two-card hand is a 2 and 3, while the highest can constitute a pair of aces.
The dealer arranges his hand according to the house way after the player has chosen how to arrange his hands. In the same vein, the two-card hands are compared, with the highest hand winning. In the event of a tie (when there is an exact match between the hands), the banker wins.
The two-card hand cannot be higher than the five card hand - if it is, they both lose. The role of the joker in Cherry Casino's Pai Gow poker is that of an ace, unless it is used to complete a straight, flush or straight flush.
How does the player win? If he player's hands beat the dealer's, he wins even money minus a 5% house commission. Losing both hands sets the player back the whole bet.
Players also have the option of taking out a Fortune side bet that is based on the full seven card hand and which pays according to a set paytable that is not easily accessible from the game itself. The following paytable for this game was taken from Cherry Casino's website:
|Natural 7-card straight flush
||8000 to 1
|Royal flush plus Royal match
||2000 to 1
|Wild 7-card straight flush
||1000 to 1
||400 to 1
||150 to 1
||50 to 1
|Four of a kind
