DEQ released EZ Pai Gow and installed two tables at Barona Resort & Casino

(US).- DEQ Systems Corp. announced that it has officially released EZ Pai Gow, a patent pending no commission Pai Gow game, and that two tables have been operational for four months at Barona Resort & Casino in San Diego, California.

When DEQ said they had another no commission product for us, we were immediately interested as EZ Baccarat has been a big success,” said Michael Patterson, Vice President of Table Games at Barona Resort & Casino. “Players love no commission and the added side bet has seen great action since we put EZ Pai Gow on the floor. Players immediately migrated to the no commission EZ Pai Gow tables as they had done when we installed EZ Baccarat and we have had rave reviews from our players since we installed them.”

"Barona has been an incredible partner for choosing, analyzing and rolling out games for us," stated Earle G. Hall, President and CEO of DEQ. "Their methodological process of analyzing a game including player's acceptance is truly state-of-the-art and a rarity in this industry. We feel very privileged to have such a partner to help us get best of breed products to the market. We are quite impressed with the orders that have come in from current EZ Baccarat clients such as Ameristar after its debut at Barona Resort & Casino and we are excited about the promising future of this second EZ product.”

Brian Doerr, Table Games Analyst at Barona Resort & Casino, explains: "EZ Pai Gow is, quite simply, Pai Gow that utilizes the barred hand concept. Once again, the simplicity of the logic is key. The conventional form of Pai Gow is strictly adhered to with two exceptions. First, there is absolutely no physical commission and the advantage to no physical commission is substantial. The increase in hands per hour makes a significant difference.”

“Just as in EZ Baccarat, EZ Pai Gow retains the value of commission by pushing all base game wagers on a Queen’s Dragon hand (i.e. when the banker’s best 5-card hand is a Queen High). Just as in EZ Baccarat, the player is actually hoping for the barred hand to hit. By shifting the focus on the possibility of a large payout when placing their side bet that the barred hand will occur, EZ Pai Gow players scream with excitement every time they pay their commission," concluded Doerr.
