RECORD-SETTING Pai Gow Progressive Jackpot
Happening Now — Rivers Casino Pittsburgh is on track to beat its own property record. The Pai Gow Progressive jackpot is now at $1,157,800 (and still growing). When/if it soars past $1.2 million, that will exceed the Rivers Poker Room’s bad beat jackpot payout in August of 2022—still the U.S. bad beat jackpot record.
Stop by and learn to play today. Pai Gow Poker uses playing cards instead of traditional Pai Gow Chinese dominoes. It features head-to-head play against the dealer and an optional bonus bet which triggers the jackpot. Players and the dealer each get seven cards to make two poker hands—a five-card “high” hand and a two-card “low” hand.
