§ 670a.7. Wagers.

 (a)  Wagers at Six-Card Fortune Pai Gow Poker shall be made by placing value chips, plaques or other Board-approved wagering instruments on the appropriate areas of the Six-Card Fortune Pai Gow Poker layout. Verbal wagers accompanied by cash may not be accepted.

 (b)  Only players who are seated at a Six-Card Fortune Pai Gow Poker table may wager at the game. Once a player has placed a wager and received cards, that player shall remain seated until the completion of the round of play. If a player leaves the table during a round of play, any wagers made by the player may be considered abandoned and may be treated as losing wagers.

 (c)  Except the Double Down Wager, all wagers at Six-Card Fortune Pai Gow Poker shall be placed prior to the dealer announcing ‘‘no more bets’’ in accordance with the dealing procedures in §  670a.8, §  670a.9 or §  670a.10 (relating to procedures for dealing the cards from a manual dealing shoe; procedures for dealing the cards from the hand; and procedures for dealing the cards from an automated dealing shoe). Except the Double Down Wager, a wager may not be made, increased or withdrawn after the dealer has announced ‘‘no more bets.’’

 (d)  To participate in a round of play and compete against the dealer’s high and low hands, a player shall place a Six-Card Fortune Pai Gow Poker Wager.

 (e)  If specified in its Rules Submission under §  601a.2 (relating to table games Rules Submissions), a certificate holder may offer to each player who placed a Six-Card Fortune Pai Gow Poker Wager, in accordance with subsection (d), the option of placing the following additional wagers:

   (1)  A Double Down Wager equal to the Six-Card Fortune Pai Gow Poker Wager that both the player’s high and low hands will beat the dealer’s high and low hands.

   (2)  A Fortune Bonus Wager that the six cards dealt to the player will form a five-card Poker hand with a rank of a three-of-a-kind or better as described in §  670a.6(b) (relating to Six-Card Fortune Pai Gow Poker rankings).

   (3)  An Insurance Wager that the six cards dealt to the player will form a five-card Poker hand with a rank of a king-high or less.

   (4)  A Progressive Payout Wager that the six cards dealt to the player will form a five-card Poker hand with a rank of a straight or better as described in §  670a.6(b).

 (f)  If specified in its Rules Submission under §  601a.2, a certificate holder may permit a player to wager on two adjacent betting areas at a Six-Card Fortune Pai Gow Poker table. If a certificate holder permits a player to wager on adjacent betting areas, the cards dealt to each betting area shall be played separately. If the two wagers are not equal, the player shall rank and set the hand with the larger wager before ranking and setting the other hand. If the amounts wagered are equal, each hand shall be played separately in a counterclockwise rotation with the first hand being ranked and set before the player proceeds to rank and set the second hand. Once a hand has been ranked, set and placed face down on the layout, the hands may not be changed.
