Fortune Pai Gow considers the best hand among a player’s seven cards, and players making at least a $5 Fortune wager qualify for Envy Bonus payouts.
To play, players make the standard Pai Gow wager and the optional Fortune Bonus wager. If a player has wagered at least $5 on the Fortune Bonus, the dealer will place an ‘Envy’ button next to his wager. The dealer then follows house procedures for Pai Gow Poker. If a player’s hand qualifies for payouts, the dealer pays him according to the posted pay table.
Play will begin once all of the bets have been placed. Each hand will pay a ‘Collection at the start of the hand based on the amount wagered.
The dealer pays any Envy Bonuses at the end of each round. If at least one player has four-of-a-kind, all players with Envy buttons win. In the event that more than one player has at least a four-of-a-kind, all players with Envy buttons win multiple payouts.
Note: A player cannot win Envy Bonuses for his own hand or the dealer’s hand. Also, see the Dealer and posting at the Fortune Pai Gow table for collection rates.
