Pai Gow is a dominoes style game where players bet on the outcome of arranging a combination of tiles. Each player, including the dealer, is dealt a hand of tiles. Players have to beat the value of the dealer's hand and accordingly have to be strategic and calculating when choosing to challenge the dealer.
Israel is known as the "only democracy in the Middle East", and is a strategic ally of the west. Gambling is strictly regulated and mostly illegal. Technically, online and mobile casinos are also prohibited, but in practice, playing in foreign casinos is possible, and players are not actively prosecuted. This makes mobile online gambling casinos relatively popular.
