Suppose I have 21 balls, 4 are black, 4 are yellow ,4 are red ,4 are orange and 5 are blue. How many ways can I get a pair? 2 balls of the same color?

16/21 of the time you draw not blue with the first ball and need the same color 3/20. 5/21 of the time you draw blue and need another blue 4/20.

16/21*3/20 + 5/21*4/20 = 68/420 = 16.19%

The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

4*combin(4,2)+combin(5,2) = 4*6 + 10 = 34

Forgive me if I just analyze the Pairplus by itself and not fuss with the base game. In that case, the answer to your question is 384x the bet amount.

For every extra 100 bets in the meter, the return goes up by 0.79%.
