Pai Gow is a traditional Chinese game of dominoes that has been popular in Syria for many years. It is essentially a poker game played with tiles rather than cards. The object of the game is to beat the banker (usually the casino) by making the best two hands possible: one five-tile hand and one two-tile hand. In the game of Pai Gow, the joker acts as a wild card and can be used to form any combination.
The game is usually played on a rectangular table that has space for eight players and one dealer. In Syria, Pai Gow is a popular game in both live casinos and online environments. Playing the game online with a live dealer offers an immersive, social experience and allows players to enjoy the game from the comfort of their own homes.
