What’s the philosophical difference between Bonus Poker and Double Bonus Poker?

1-for-1 on 2 pair pays for higher awards. It leads to a big difference in volatility.

I suppose that some people like the doubled pays on the 4-of-a-kind pays and increased other pays. After all, a 4-of-a-kind is frequent enough to add some interest.

Personally, I don't like playing any games that pay a push for two pair, so I'd stick with Bonus Poker.
I heart Crystal Math.

Mr. W. has a 1-for-1 payout on two-pair in one of the pay tables given in the "Bonus Poker" section (see the last one) Bonus Poker. But, I can live with that definition ...

Thanks,

Pay schedules will vary from casino to casino and machine to machine for that matter. Always look for the best.

I'm not a player ... you know ... the force that through the green fuse drives the VP RNG drives my green age ... and all that (with apologies to Dylan, no, the other Dylan) ... really, I just didn't know and was curious ... especially as the 1-for-1 on two-pair was not consistent in Mr. W.'s critter farm ...

There is a version of BP that pays 1-1 on two pair and 10-1 on a Full House. I don't know why they call it BP, when it's another game entirely, probably to trick people like me and Crystal into playing it.
