(Niagara Falls, ON) January 15, 2020 – Fallsview Casino Resort is the first casino in Ontario to introduce Pai Gow Tiles with a Fire & Ice side wager.

Pai Gow is an ancient Chinese game that when translated literally means “making nines.” The game uses 32 tiles which form the first 16 Ranking Pairs. The object of Pai Gow Tiles is to take four tiles and form two “hands” that either total as close to nine as possible or form one of the 20 Ranking Pairs. The Fire & Ice side wager is an optional wager which wins if all the dots on a player’s four tiles are the same colour. All red pays 1000 to 1 and all white pays 35 to 1.

“We’re proud to be the first casino in Ontario to introduce Pai Gow Tiles with a Fire & Ice side wager,” says Steve Weel, vice president of gaming operations at Niagara Casinos. “We’re introducing new gaming features based on patron feedback and the response has been extremely positive.”

Pai Gow Tiles with a Fire & Ice side wager is just another gaming initiative recently launched by Niagara Casinos this past year. Gaming expansions introduced in 2019 included dealer electronic Dynasty Blackjack and Dynasty Baccarat and the first Niagara Series of Poker Tournament, hosted in October 2019.

“As we move into 2020, I’m confident we will continue to expand gaming at both Fallsview Casino Resort and Casino Niagara,” says Weel. “We take a strategic approach to launching new initiatives with the goal of being innovative and customer focused. We are always looking to create an exceptional gaming experience.”
