The game features head-to-head play against the dealer and offers the optional fortune bonus and ace-high wagers. In a standard Pai Gow game, every player and the dealer receive seven cards, but in Face Up Pai Gow Poker only the dealer’s cards are dealt face up. Since Face Up Pai Gow Poker is a commission-free game, players don’t have to pay a 5% commission when they beat the dealer. However, when the dealer plays ace-high, you automatically push.
This player surely beat the odds to score such a massive win and ultimately lived the dream of every casino player in the world! For more interesting news and updates, keep reading Gutshot Magazine. Follow us on our social handles Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Telegram.
