Wendover Resorts Presents: A Short History of Pai Gow Poker

Pai Gow Poker, sometimes known as Double-Hand Poker, is an amalgamation of two similar games that come from two very different cultures. As the name implies, it comes from the ancient Chinese game of Pai Gow and the (relatively) much more recent game of Poker that was perfected in the United States after evolving from games brought over from Europe.

Wendover Resorts and Casino Presents: A Short History of Craps | (775) 401-6840

It’s no surprise that the history of Craps is murky. It’s a casino game, after all, and if there is one thing that all casino games have in common it’s that their origins can never quite be pinned down to an exact date or place.
But, seeing as how Craps is one of the most popular table games at the Wendover Nugget Hotel and Casino and the Red Garter Hotel and Casino, we wanted to explore the origins of this fascinating game. Call us at (775) 401-6840 for booking and inquiries.
