Pai gow is a Chinese domino game that has been played for centuries. It is played in casinos around the world, especially in Macau, but also in Australia, Las Vegas, and Atlantic City, among other places. While pai gow is the most challenging of casino games, it also makes a great social game.
Pai gow has complicated rules, and is not an easy game to play. If you haven't played it before, learning pai gow in a casino will be too expensive. This pai gow app is designed to teach you the rules as you play, just as you'd learn it in real life.
We have designed a "learner strategy" that you can use to play the game. While this is much simpler than any strategy you'd probably want to use in a casino, in order to use it, you'll have to learn to value your tiles and choose your play. Of course, the app keeps track of the score in the game, but it also tells you whether or not you made the right play.
The app features social and casino games. You alternate play as the banker with play against the banker. Help on the rules and context-sensitive hints on play are always available. The app includes a full description of the rules of pai gow, written by a native English speaker.
If you already know how to play pai gow, or if you want to learn to play well, may we recommend our full Pai Gow app. That app has three additional strategies from beginner to advanced, and an adaptive tutor that will allow you to hone your skills.
Both the full app and the lite version feature original music composed especially for these apps.
