The word ‘Pai Gow’ is Cantonese for ‘Make nine’. Pai Gow is played with one set of 32 Chinese dominoes. It is played by shuffling tiles and then they are arranged in face-down stacks of eight and four tiles each. Individual stacks are then moved in a specific way to rearrange the woodpile, the players then place their bets.
The dealer as well as each player, normally there will be seven players, receives one stack of tiles and must use them to create to hand of two tiles each. The front hand is of lower value and the rear hand is of higher value. To win the bet, the player’s front hand needs to beat the dealer’s front hand or the player’s rear hand needs to beat the dealer’s rear hand.
Should the player’s front and rear hand lose to the dealer’s respective hands then that is a loss for the player. When one hand loses and the other wins, the player must push to get the money they bet with. Each player’s hand is measured only against the dealer’s hands.
Baccarat is one of the Asian casino games that is dominant in Asian markets. Played by multiple players with a deck of cards against the dealer, this game has a coup with three achievable outcomes; player, banker or tie. Cards have a point value, 2 to 9 are face value in points, queens, kings, tens, jacks have no point value and aces are worth 1 point and jokers are not used. A hand that consists of 2 and 3 is worth 5 and a hand that consist of 6 and 7 is worth 3 because 3 is the rightmost of the combined point of 13. This makes nine the highest possible hand in Baccarat.
