Bitcoin video poker payouts for Two Pair are substantial at Bitcoin Games, with a a provably fair gaming site with 99% or better expected return.

This is considered to be among the more confusing hands in video poker. It wasn't always this way, noted gaming guru Elliot Frome for Casino City back in 2004.

Back in the days of just Jacks or Better, I think most people quickly recognized the benefits of keeping the two pair even when one of the pair was a pair of Jacks or Better. When the math gurus came along, this was quickly confirmed with Two Pairs having an Expected Value (EV) of 2.60, while a High Pair has an EV of only 1.54. The Two Pairs paying 2, and the Four of a Kinds paying 'only' 25, made this not much to think about.

Along came the Deuces Wild Version of Video Poker. Two Pairs isn't even a winning hand! The strategy was quickly developed that made it proper play to dump one of the two pairs (it doesn't matter which). The Single Pair has an EV of .56. If you chose to hold the Two Pair, your EV would drop to .50. A bit closer than our earlier example, but again, not much to think about.

PLAYING VIDEO POKER AT BITCOIN GAMES IS PROVABLY FAIR

Play with confidence! Bitcoin Games guarantee that every Video Poker game you playis completely fair. You will be dealt a completely random deck of cards every game, and they can provably demonstrate that there is no way to manipulate the shuffle.

The reason that we can guarantee this is that your web browser supplies a random number that we must incorporate into the random number generator in a provably consistent way.  Their server first shuffles the deck, and your computer then gives us a random number that we must use to repeatedly cut the deck. Since the Bitcoin Games servers do not know what random number your computer will send, they have no way of knowing how the shuffle will look in the end.
