Listen to this Gambling History blog post here


After a demonstration of the game, Nevada gambling regulators, for the first time, allowed pai gow — a Chinese version of dominoes — to be offered in its casinos. 

The clubs with pai gow, however, were required to have a bankroll of $10,000 per game on hand should a patron win big. 

The New China Club and the Fan Tan, in Reno, were the pai gow trailblazers in the state.
