"EZ Pai Gow has dominated the floor when compared to all other forms of Pai Gow wherever it is deployed," stated Earle G. Hall, President and CEO of DEQ.   "It is the only true non commission form of Pai Gow where the push mechanism is offset by a very enticing optional side bet. Feedback from operators and clients has been very positive and now the ability to analyze the data from Missouri enables us to show numbers to support the great comments we have had. We would like to congratulate Lubin-Jones for this revolutionary invention and we are very excited about the future placements of this game all over the USA."

EZ Pai Gow is a revolutionary method of accelerating the speed of Pai Gow poker by eliminating the 5% commission on winning hands. The commission is replaced by imposing a push when the dealer gets a Queen High Pai Gow (Queen high hand). Players can side bet on the occurrence of the dealer's Queen high Pai Gow and the side bet is trademarked as the "Queens' Dragon™". This side wager pays 50 to 1 and creates an additional way for the player to win and a new revenue source for the casino. The EZ Pai Gow methodology and the Queen's Dragon bet were created by Dan Lubin of Lubin-Jones, LLC. These methods are protected within the scope of Lubin-Jones no commission Pai Gow intellectual property portfolio.
