Pai Gow is the biggest gambling game in the world. It is a game played with dice and with 32 Chinese dominoes. Although it is an ancient game, its popularity has greatly increased in recent years and it is now featured in almost every major gambling casino in the world. It is common for a player to bet $5000 (five thousand US dollars) on a single hand of Pai Gow. When I was playing Pai Gow recently in the Oaks Card Room in Emeryville California, I was betting the minimum $10 on my hand of Pai Gow, while the man sitting next to me was betting $5000 on the same hand. Added together, a total of $10,000 (ten thousand dollars) was bet on that one hand. In the Pai Gow game I was playing in, the banker, who is just one of the players and not the house, was matching all the bets of the other players, Thus, that one player stood to win or to lose $10,000 on just that one hand of Pai Gow. Nowadays, almost every major casino in Nevada, Atlantic City and Macao and most other large casinos around the world offer Pai Gow. Most of the big card rooms in California offer Pai Gow as well.
