PAI GOW EQUIPMENT

Pai Gow shall be played at a table having on one-side places for the players and on the opposite side a place for a dealer. The cloth covering the Pai Gow table shall have the name of casino imprinted on it.

Each Pai Gow layout shall contain, at a minimum, the six separate designated betting areas for the players at the table with each area being numbered one through six.

Each Pai Gow table shall have a drop box and tip box attached to it on the same side of the gaming table as, but on the opposite sides of the dealer.

Except as provided below, Pai Gow shall be played with a container, to be know as a "Pai Gow Shaker", which shall be used to shake three dice before each hand of Pai Gow is dealt in order to determine the starting position for the delivery of the tiles.

The Pai Gow shaker shall be designed and constructed to maintain the integrity of the game and shall be capable of housing three dice and shall be designed so as to prevent the dice from being seen while the dealer is shaking it.

Pai Gow shall be played with a set of 32 rectangular blocks known as tiles. Each tile in a set shall be identical in size and shading to every other tile in the set.

Each tile used in Pai Gow shall:

  1. Be made of a non-transparent black material, formed in the shape of a rectangle, and be of a size no smaller than 2.5 inches in length and 1.0 inch in width.
  2. Have the surface of each of its sides perfectly flat, except that the front side of each tile shall contain spots, which shall extend into the tile exactly the same distance as every other spot.
  3. Have the texture and finish of each side, with the exception of the front side, exactly identical to the texture and finish of all other sides.
  4. Have the back and sides of the each tile within a set be identical and no tile within a set shall contain any marking, symbol, or design that will enable a person to know the identity of any element on the front side of the tile or that will distinguish any tile from any other within a set.
  5. Have identifying spots on the front of the tiles which are either red or white or both.

Each set of tiles shall be composed of the 32 tiles traditionally used in the game Pai Gow.

 

Each die used in the game of Pai Gow shall:

  1. Each die will be formed in the shape of a perfect cube and of a size no smaller than .637 of an inch on each side or any larger than .643 of an inch on each side.
  2. Be transparent and made exclusively of cellulose except for the spots, name of the casino and serial numbers or letters contained thereon.
  3. Have the surface of each of its side perfectly flat and the spots contained in each side perfectly flush with the area surrounding them.
  4. Have the texture and finish of each side exactly identical to the texture and finish of all other sides.
  5. Have all edges and corners perfectly square and forming perfect 90-degree angles.
  6. Have its weight equally distributed throughout the cube and no side of the cube heavier or lighter than any other side of the cube.
  7. Have its sides bearing white circular spots from one to six respectively with the diameter of each spot not necessarily equal to the diameter of every other spot on the die.

Have the spots so that the side containing one spot is directly opposite the side containing six spots, the side containing two spots is directly opposite the side containing five spots and the side containing tree spots is directly opposite the side containing four spots; each spot shall be placed on the die by drilling into the surface of the cube and filling the drilled out portion with a compound which is equal in weight to the weight of the cellulose drilled out and which forms a permanent bond with the cellulose cube, and shall extend into the cube exactly the same distance as every other spots extends into the cube to an accuracy of .0004 of an inch.
