Pai Gow Tiles
Pai Gow Tiles is a game that uses a standard set of 32 Chinese dominoes. The house has no stake in the game except to provide a house dealer. Each player is offered the player/dealer position per round of play. The player has the option of either accepting the player/dealer position or passing it on to the next player.
The player/dealer starts the game by rolling three dice. The total of the dice determines which player receives the first set of dominoes—starting from the player/dealer, the house dealer counts counter-clockwise.
Each player receives four dominoes and plays two hands simultaneously, a high hand and a low hand. Both hands must be higher than the player/dealer’s hand to win. If one hand is higher, and the other is lower, then it is a push. If both of the player’s hands are lower than the player/dealer’s hand, the player loses. A rating system determines the value of each hand. Pai Gow Tiles is similar to playing two separate hands of Baccarat at the same time, with 9 being the highest point; except that there are twenty different combinations of dominoes that are higher than 9. Sixteen of these combinations are pairs; the other four combinations of dominoes which are higher than 9 are called ‘Wong’ and ‘Gong’.
