Gambling is a huge industry in China and Asia. Most gambling games available are variations of roulette, poker, blackjack and slots. This article will focus on the most popular gambling games in China and Asia: Yang roulette, Pai Gow Poker, Grand Texas Hold’em.
Yang Roulette: is a simplified version of European roulette and was adapted for Chinese players. This game uses 37 number instead of the 38 numbers used in most casinos around the world. [No number]. Number [one] to [three], [twenty-two], [thirty-four], and [sixty-six] are removed from the table layout, while each section has sixteen poker chips divided into four red (R), white (W), blue (B) and green (G). The betting limits also differ significantly from regular tables, where bets can range anywhere between RMB0.01 to RMB1000 per chip with an even money payout for all winning bet types except any one black which pays out at 35 to one.
Pai Gow Poker: Pai gow poker is a casino table game that is played with playing cards, not dice as in pai gow. The object of the game is to create two hands which total nine points each using seven dealt cards plus two common cards which are shared by both hand and can be used in either or both hands. This version of pai gow was created for western players who would otherwise find it difficult to grasp the mechanics behind throwing tiles on a table. Once you understand how this variant works, learning its rules will probably take no more than five minutes – even if English isn’t your native language!
Players place their bets before receiving their first card facing up (players may bet on any number of hands, including splitting bets between different combinations). After all players have bet, each player is dealt seven cards face down. The dealer then sets the two common cards in front of the house and flips one over to reveal its suit (this card is used as the first card for both the banker’s and player’s hands). At this point, players turn their first four cards over so that everyone can see them. If a player has a pat hand (a pair of jacks or better), they must signal the dealer to stop dealing; otherwise, the dealer will continue turning cards over until either someone has a pat hand or there are no more cards to deal.
