    Hoping to find a Progressive Pai Gow game somewhere on the strip.

    Also, 2 years ago The Venetian had a commission free Pai Gow game but I was told they no longer have it. Does anyone know any casinos that have the commission free game?

    golden nugget had a commission free game in february.

    as far as a progressive game goes, i've talked to dealers and players and i've yet to find someone who has had the elusive 7 card royal. i did, however, see a six card royal about 3 months ago. only one i have ever seen.
     
    gonna be a two royal trip!!

    I think the D has the EZ Pai Gow variant, but that's the closest I've seen to commission free. Venetian and Paris have the Asia Poker version, which has no commission, but there's also no pushes. Set a hand 4, 2, 1. You have to win 2 of the 3. Ties to the house. I usually play over at Harrah's. They have $10-$15 tables, as well as one Pai Gow Tiles table, usually at $15, but sometimes $25. I don't think they have a progressive, though, only the dragon bonus bet. V/P has Progressive Pai Gow for sure.

    FWIW, the Wizard of Odds website does not recommend playing the progressive until the jackpot exceeds something close to $125k. Under that amount the risk/reward is not there. I have told that to dealers who asked me why I don't play the progressive and when I answer them most nod in agreement.

    Played commission-free at Treasure Island, $10 min, in October. Can't remember if it had a progressive on the bonus bet or not.

    Good to know about ti. SLS had the progressive. The dealer was telling us how boyd casinos had their own progressive, but wilds did not count towards it? Anyway, not confirmed.
