EZ Pai Gow Poker eliminates taking a 5% commission on all winning Player’s hands. The game is dealt exactly the same as the Standard Pai Gow Poker game without modifying Rivers’s “House Ways” for setting hands. There is an optional side wager called the Queen’s Dragon which pays 50 to 1 when the Dealer gets a Queen High Pai Gow. A Pai Gow is a seven card hand that does not have a pair or better.
Players also have the option of betting on the Dynasty Bonus and eZ Pai Gow Protection Bet. The Dynasty Bonus is paid based on making a hand out of all 7 cards in the player’s hand and qualifying against the posted pay chart. When players bet $5.00 or more on the Dynasty Bonus, they are eligible to win an envy Bonus. An “envy” button will be placed on all bonus wagers of $5.00 or more. The EZ Pai Gow Protection bet is also paid when the players hand qualifies against the posted pay chart.
The object of the game is still to have the player’s two hands rank higher than the Dealer’s or Banker’s two hands. All Pai Gow wagers pay 1 to 1 except when the dealer gets a Queen’s Dragon or a Queen High Pai Gow. When this occurs all Player’s Pai Gow bets push, meaning it does not win or lose.
NOTE: You cannot win envy Bonuses for your own hand or the dealer’s hand. All Pai Gow wagers must be made in increments of $5.
There is a maximum payout of $50,000 per player per hand.
