    Hi everyone.

    I've always wanted to try playing Pai Gow tiles, as the game has always caught my interest, and the high rate of pushes and overall slower pace are kind of appealing. Although I've been reading up a bit, it's a complicated game to learn, and I would most certainly want the dealer to set my hand the house way if I end up trying it sometime. Are most Pai Gow dealers willing to set your hand the house way, and if so, do you arrange your tiles in a specific way to indicate that you'd like them to set the tiles, or do you just ask them to do it?

    I realize that not all casinos offer Pai Gow tiles, but I have seen them on the strip at Aria and Bellagio, usually with a $25 minimum. Is $25 about the lowest you'll find on the strip?

    Thanks!

    Ask dealer to set tiles house way. They would be willing to help you. They know you are learning and don't want you to misplay your hand.

    Wait until all other players have their hand set and turn all of your tiles face up. The dealer will help you set it. I recommend Harrahs. Their tables are generally 15 and dealers are patient. Anywhere else will be between 25 and 100.

    Wizardofodds.com is best place to learn. You can also practice on the site.
