Mastering the Casino Party: Conquer Pai Gow Poker with 21 Fun's Winning Strategies

Welcome, high rollers and poker enthusiasts, to the ultimate guide on dominating the casino party scene with the legendary 21 Fun's approach to Pai Gow Poker. This classic game combines elements of traditional poker and ancient Chinese dominoes, making it a captivating and unique choice for your next gathering. So, grab your chips and prepare to learn the secrets to winning big in true 21 Fun style.

1. Embrace the Power of Strategy:

When it comes to Pai Gow Poker, strategy reigns supreme. 21 Fun's approach centers around analyzing the odds, maintaining composure, and making informed decisions. Remember, the goal is to create two hands—one high and one low—that can outmatch the dealer's hands. To start, understand the ranking system of the game and identify the highest probability hands for success.

Here are the hand rankings in Pai Gow Poker, listed from highest to lowest:

  1. Five Aces (Four Aces plus the Joker)
  2. Royal Flush
  3. Straight Flush
  4. Four of a Kind
  5. Full House
  6. Flush
  7. Straight
  8. Three of a Kind
  9. Two Pairs
  10. One Pair
  11. High Card

2. Stay Cool, Calm, and Collected:

Regardless of the cards dealt, remember that the casino party atmosphere should be enjoyable and stress-free. Take your time, assess the situation, and play strategically, and most importantly, relax and have a good time!

3. Capitalize on the House Way:

The House Way is a predetermined set of rules followed by the dealer when setting their hands. 21 Fun advises taking advantage of this structure to optimize your chances of winning. Study the House Way rules in advance and mimic them whenever possible, thereby minimizing risks and increasing your odds of a favorable outcome.

Here are the guidelines:

  • If you have no pairs, straights, or flushes, arrange your cards in descending order, putting the highest card in the high hand and the second and third-highest cards in the low hand.
  • If you have one pair, place it in the high hand, unless you also have an Ace or King. In that case, split the pair unless you have a second pair. Always play the highest non-pair cards in the low hand.
  • If you have two pairs, split them unless you also have an Ace or King. In that case, play the higher pair in the high hand and the lower pair in the low hand.
  • If you have three pairs, play the highest pair in the high hand and the other pairs in the low hand.
  • If you have a full house, always split the pair unless you also have an Ace or King. In that case, play the full house as your high hand.
  • If you have four of a kind, always split them, unless you also have an Ace, King, Queen, or Jack. In that case, play the four of a kind as your high hand.
  • If you have a straight or a flush, play it in the high hand, unless you also have two pairs. In that case, play the two pairs in the high hand.

4. Master Bankroll Management:

It's crucial to approach your casino party with a well-defined budget strategy. Determine the maximum amount of your funny money you are willing to wager and stick to it. This discipline will help you avoid impulsive decisions that can lead to unnecessary losses. Remember, it's all about maximizing your winning potential while mitigating risks.

How the Cards are Dealt:

In Pai Gow Poker, each player, including the dealer, receives seven cards from a standard 52-card deck, with one card remaining unused. The objective is to divide these seven cards into two separate hands—one high hand consisting of five cards and one low hand consisting of two cards. The high hand should have a higher value than the low hand.

After the players have arranged their hands, the dealer reveals their own hand according to the House Way rules. Then, each player's high and low hands are compared to the dealer's respective high and low hands. If both of the player's hands are higher than the dealer's corresponding hands, it's a win. If both of the player's hands are lower, it's a loss. If only one hand is higher or lower, it's a push, and the bet is returned to the player.

Have Fun and Win Big!

As you prepare for your next casino party, armed with 21 Fun's winning strategies for Pai Gow Poker, remember to approach the game with a strategic mindset, capitalize on the House Way, manage your funny money effectively, and have a great time! By following these principles, you'll increase your chances of leaving the table as a triumphant poker master, or at the very least, someone who had a wonderful night to remember. So, gather your friends, place your bets, and let the cards fall in your favor!

30th Birthday Party

After doing a bit of research for a Casino themed 30th bday party we booked with 21 Fun and couldn't wait for the big day. The crew arrived on time and got everything set up super quickly. The manager of the night, Brandon, was very professional and kept things running smoothly all night. Overall very impressed with the delivery and would recommend. Also Debbie was extremely helpful in answering questions and making sure we had all the info we needed.

Office Warming Party

We were having an office-warming party at our new location and wanted to add an extra activity for the guests.Not only did the adults have a great time at the casino tables; the kids were playing as well (the dealers were turning it into a fun math game for them). Running a busy office I have found it very rare being able to book something with ease and not worry about them showing up, and that was the case with 21 Fun (plus the pricing is fantastic for what you get)! If you have any doubts about hiring 21 Fun at your next event, all I can say is do it and you won't regret it!

Thanks 21Fun!

Corporate Event

We hired 21 Fun to operate a casino at our corporate event. They did an amazing job. Having them at the party really created a fun atmosphere. They were helpful with first time gamblers and easy to work with. We didn't leave them with a specific floorplan but they came up with the perfect setup. Having the casino was a game-changer for how many people enjoyed the event. I would be happy to hire them again.

Awesome Dealers!

Super fun and friendly staff! We really enjoyed playing Craps with Gian. It was our first time and we had no idea what to do. Gian was extremely helpful! We loved his energy, enthusiasm, and sense of humor. We also had the opportunity to meet Ryan at the black jack table. Both dealers were awesome and I recommend them for any party. Thank you guys for a fun night!
