Pai Gow Poker with Progressive Bonus
Pai Gow Poker has evolved over the years with many variations now offered in live casinos. One of the newer versions of the game Fortune Pai Gow Progressive was developed by Shuffle Master and introduced at the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) in Las Vegas November 14, 2006. This game is basically Fortune Pai Gow Poker with a second side-bet added.
The added side-bet cost $1.00 and gives players the opportunity to compete for a massive progressive jackpot. The payout table below shows the payouts for various hands made.
Reminder, this extra progressive side-bet is available on top of the standard Pai Gow Poker bet and the Fortune bonus side-bet.
Where to Play Fortune Pai Gow Progressive
Fortune Pai Gow Progressive is not yet offered by live casinos. According to a recent press release, the company behind this game (Shuffle Master) has installed 168 tables of Fortune Pai Gow Progressive in North American casinos. Unfortunately, a list of all locations has not yet been assembled, or one is not readily available on the web.
From personal experience we can tell you this game is available at Harrah’s Ak-Chin, Beau Rivage in Biloxi Mississippi, Thunder Valley Casino just outside of Sacramento, California, Silver Legacy Casino Resort, located right in the middle of downtown Reno, Nevada, and in many Las Vegas Local Casinos. By local casinos we mean that the casino is located off-strip.
Casinos we’ve spotted Fortune Pai Gow Poker Progressive in: Excalibur, Luxor, Hard Rock, Silverton, Green Valley, Freemont and Four Queens. There are likely many other casinos offering it, most are located away from the strip.
