Pai Gow “maKing nines” is a fascinating game from the Orient that is played with three-dimensional cards or domino-like tiles. The position to receive the first set of tiles is determined by the total of the dice. Four tiles are dealt to each player, the dealer and each vacant position on the table. Each player creates two hands with the four tiles, a high hand and a second high hand. The object of the game is to create two hands that are both higher than the bank hand. If both are higher, the player wins. If one hand is higher and the other lower, it is a tie. If both hands are lower, the player loses. The bank is offered for rotation after each round of play, with the players and the dealer taKing turns. Payoffs are even money and the house collects a 5% commission on all winning wagers.
