PAI GOW DEALING PROCEDURES

After receiving a set of tiles, the dealer shall sort and inspect the tiles and the floor person assigned to the table shall verify the inspection.

Following the inspection, the tiles shall be turned face up, then placed into 16 pairs and arranged according to rank. The tiles shall be left in pairs for visual inspection by the first player to arrive at the game.

After the first player is afforded an opportunity to visually inspect the tiles, the tiles shall be turned face down on the table and shuffled.

The dealer shall call "No More Bets" prior to shaking the Pai Gow shaker.

In order to determine the starting position delivery of stacks of tiles either procedure may be used:

 

  1. The banker shall shake the Pai Gow poker shaker and dice at least three times. The dealer shall then remove the lid, total the dice, and announce the total. To determine the starting position, the dealer shall count counter-clockwise around the table, with the position of the banker considered number one until the counts matches the total of the three dice.
  2. The dealer may use a computerized random number generator to select a display a number from 1 to 8, and verbally announce the number. To determine the starting position, the dealer shall counter-clockwise around the table, with the position of the banker considered number one until the count matches the number displayed by the random number generator.

If a player is banking, the player may not set the bank hand until after all the players have set their hands.

After all players have set their hands, the dealer shall arrange the dealerís hand according to the house ways.

If a player is banking, the dealer will then compare the dealerís hand to the playerís and determine the winner according to the rules of the game. If the player wins, the dealer will place the wager in the area for the playerís winning wagers and place the dealerís tiles in the discard stack. If the player loses, the dealer will place the wager on top of the stacked dealerís hand to be paid by the banker. If the hand is a push, the dealer will place the wager into the bankroll and place the tiles in the discard stack. The bankerís hand is then brought into the area in front of the dealer.

If a player is co-banking, the dealer will bring the playersí tiles into the center of the table and set the playersí hand using the house ways.

The dealer shall then expose the hand of each player, compare them with the bankís hand and determine whether the hand wins or loses according to the rules of the game, starting from the right and proceeding counter-clockwise around the table.

The dealer shall immediately collect all losing wagers and tiles.

All winning hands shall remain face up on the layout. Winning hands shall be paid after all hands have been exposed.

If a player is banking and the banker loses more money than player wins, the dealer will collect money from the banker before paying the winning wagers of the other players.

If the player is co-banking and the player loses more money than wins, the dealer will collect one-half of the money lost from the player and the dealer shall pay the other half.

The dealer shall pay winning wagers starting at the dealerís right and continuing counter-clockwise.

All winning Pai Gow wager, including the bankerís total win, shall be paid even money. A commission of 5% shall be collected or extracted from the payoff.

All tiles collected by dealer shall be picked up in order and placed in the discard stack in such a way that they can be readily arranged to reconstruct each hand in case of a question or dispute.
