Face Up Pai Gow Poker

Face Up Pai Gow Poker

Open Face Pai Gow Poker is the traditional Pai Gow Poker with a twist. The dealer will show the designated player’s hand, so the other players can have the best strategy against that hand.

Face Up Pai Gow Poker features head-to-head play against the Designated Player and offers the optional Fortune BonusSM and Ace-High wagers. As in standard Pai Gow, each player and Designated Player receive seven-cards, but in Face Up Pai Gow Poker the Designated Player’s cards are dealt face-up. Face Up Pai Gow Poker is a commission-free game. When the Designated Player plays Ace-High, you automatically push.

Getting Started

To begin each round, make a standard Pai Gow wager. You may also make the Fortune Bonus and Ace-High wagers.


The Fortune Bonus bet wins if your best possible five-card hand matches one of the payouts from the offered paytable.


This bet wins if the Designated Player is forced to play an Ace-High Pai Gow. See layout for odds.
