Pai Gow Poker with Insurance
The infamous Pai Gow Insurance is a new version of Pai Gow Poker offered at Station Casinos in Las Vegas. This game first debuted at Red Rock in the summer of 2008 and has since grown in popularity. The game is pending review by the New Jersey gambling commissions for inclusion in Atlantic City casinos. For the time being, to the best of our knowledge, the game is only available sparingly in Las Vegas casinos.
Pai Gow Insurance is played exactly like Pai Gow Poker; however, there is an optional side-bet which pays out if a player is dealt a Pai Gow hand. If you’re not familiar with the term “Pai Gow Hand” this is a non ranking hand (high card only) meaning no pairs, no straights, no flushes.
The payouts for Pai Gow Insurance are:
9 High Pai Gow – 100 to 1
10 High Pai Gow – 25 to 1
J High Pai Gow – 15 to 1
Q High Pai Gow – 7 to 1
K High Pai Gow – 5 to 1
A High Pai Gow – 3 to 1
Las Vegas Casinos offering Pai Gow Insurance side-bets: Red Rock, Aliante Station, Palace Station, Boulder Station, Texas Station and Sunset Station.
We frequently visit casinos all over North America. While it’s likely there are others offering this game, at this time these are the only ones we know of.
