I have wondered, and i do not have the right program or fortitude to do this which is why I am asking, how often will/does a dealer get a queen high paigow. Is it exactly enough to offset the 5% commission? I was at Showboat last month and explained the game to the other players, dealer and pit manager and they thought it was a much better game for the players. My point was, they don't create better games for the player and thus I argued it probably is almost the same as paying the commission. Is this true or not? As an aside with an hour of my starting the discussion the dealer got TWO queen high paigows.

PaiGowDan, the inventor of EZ Pai Gow, will probably respond soon enough. And I think a search will also result in the answer.

But the short answer is: No. Strictly on the house edge basis, EZ is better for the player than the 5% commission. However, it is only slightly so.

The flip side is, everyone likes it better, so you'll have more people playing, and playing longer.

Plus, because you're no longer fumbling with those damn quarters and whites to pay the 5%, the game goes faster. More hands per hour, means more money for the casino - despite the slightly lower house edge.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition.

Cannery group spreads the game (Rampart, Cannery, Eastside Cannery).

rdw: When we were at WoVCon, I may have mentioned to you that I saw an EZ PaiGow table as I was walking through Paris Las Vegas -- I had not heard before that they had the game there.

I think you did. And that's good news. Hopefully, Dan's game will slowly infiltrate the entire Evil Empire. I thought I also saw it somewhere else right after WovCon. Somewhere on Boulder Highway, maybe? (and not eastside cannery, I didn't stop there this time around). Could have been back in the midwest, too. I've been to Council Bluffs since I was in Vegas. Maybe I'm just mixing things up.

Probably at Fiesta Henderson -- that's Dan's home shop, I think.

At Borgata it outnumbers Fortune Pai Gow by maybe 4-1.
