DescriptionPanda Pai Gow Poker is an adaptation of pai gow poker, a card game invented and popularized in the 1980s' American casinos. After betting 1, 5, 10, 25 or 50 tokens, the panda will deal seven cards to the player. Using them two hands must be created: a low hand with two cards, and a high hand with five. To beat the house, the player must win both hands. There's also a bonus bet: before the panda deals the cards, it's necessary to guess what the outcome will be ("Win", "Lose", or "Push"). If the player guesses correctly, then the little panda on the left will move up the stairs and pop off a firework. After seven correct guesses it will reach the top, set off the remaining rockets and unlock the token reward displayed there. However, after five incorrect answers the panda will fall back to the base of the stairs, and it will be forced to start anew. An additional fortune bonus occurs every time the player gets a high hand, and the rewards are handed out instantly. They can vary from a lowly 20 tokens for a straight up to 5000 tokens for a seven card straight flush.
The game uses a deck with 52 cards. The joker plays a special role--it can be used as an ace, and as a link in a straight, a flush, a straight flush or a royal flush. All the usual poker hands apply here, with the ace being the card with the highest value. Since the low hand has only two cards, one can play only a high card or one pair. Besides these two, the high hand can also have two pair, three of a kind, straight, flush, full house, four of a kind, straight flush, royal flush or five aces (four aces plus a joker). The value of the low hand can never be higher than that of the high hand.
