Face Up
Pai Gow Poker™

Face Up Pai Gow Poker™ features head-to-head play against the dealer and offers the optional Fortune BonussM wager. As in standard Pai Gow, each player and dealer receive seven-cards, but in Face Up Pai Gow Poker the dealer’s cards are dealt face-up. The Joker is considered fully wild and can be used as any card. Face Up Pai Gow Poker is a commission-free game. You do not pay a 5% commission when you beat the dealer; however, when the dealer is forced to play an Ace or King-High, you automatically push.

Getting Started

To begin each round, make a standard Pai Gow wager. You may also make the Fortune Bonus wager.


The Fortune Bonus bet wins if your best possible five-card hand matches one of the payouts from the offered paytable. If you wager at least $5 on the Fortune Bonus, the dealer will place an “envy” button next to your bet. This qualifies you for an envy bonus payout. See paytable for odds.
Note: Certain Fortune Bonus payouts require that all seven-cards be natural, these specific payouts will be designated as “NO JOKER”.


The dealer pays any envy bonuses at the end of the round. If at least one player receives a hand that qualifies for Envy Bonus payouts, all players with envy buttons win. You can win multiple Envy Bonuses in a round, but you CANNOT win an Envy Bonus for your own hand or the dealer’s hand. See paytable for payouts.
