New game I saw at Mohegan Sun in CT.

Anyone care to analyze it?

Its exactly this:


Pay table is the same. 12 to 1 on a straight is a typo its 2:1.

I hear thru the grapevine it`s over 5%,but will wait for the math guys for the final answer.

This game sounds way too slow. You are not going to get many hands per hour.

Does the 500-1 for five aces pay the same if the hand includes both jokers? Seems high for double draw with six "good" cards in play.

edit: Also, is the game only against a pay table? With six players sharing card info, I think this game may have some holes that can be exploited.

They had this game a long time ago at a local cardroom. WSGC pdf for Double Dragon Pai Gow.

Just against the pay table.. not against the dealer. Yes. The five aces bet can be two jokers and three aces.

The game is new and the dealers were VERY liberal.. we were chatting up a storm.. "anyone have any aces?" etc. etc.

We weren't brazen enough at the table to ask for a specific card... but I was looking at all the cards of the players to the right and left of me.

Pretty strange that there's no payline for 5 of a kind. Does the Straight really pay 12-to-1 or is that a typo and it's supposed to be 2-to-1?

You can't get 5 of a kind because they are Pai Gow Jokers. Only fill in for a straight or flush. I yes the 12:1 is a typo.

i am going to the casino tomorrow night and will double check the paytable. Because I don't think they required a natural royal flush.

I asked for a brochure on the game and they looked at me like I had a hole in my head.

But you should still be able to make Five Aces.

The Jokers can be used as an Ace or to complete a “Straight” or “Flush”.
