Emperor’s Challenge Pai Gow with Progressive and Share the Wealth Jackpots

EMPEROR'S CHALLENGE PAI GOW PROGRESSIVE JACKPOT RULES

Emperor's Challenge Pai Gow (or double hand poker) is an American-style take on pai gow played with a standard 52-card deck and a joker  card. It's played on a six player table with a dealer. Each player tries to defeat the Banker, which could be either another player or the Dealer.

To win, players must create two hands out of the seven-card hand he is dealt by the Dealer. Each player receives a five-card hand and a two-card poker hand.

To begin, all cards are shuffled and dealt to the table in seven face-down stacks of seven cards per stack. Regardless of a number players, four cards are left unused.

Two-card hands are one pair and high cards only. Only the highest qualifying hand is paid and prizes are shown as a percentage, meaning the Player receives that percentage of the displayed jackpot. Prizes displayed as a fixed dollar amount means the winnings are a fixed dollar amount.
