    I was surfing around the online casino on the website I use for sports betting and checked out the pay tables for the double double bonus. It was an 8/5/4/3/1/1 table, but a royal flush returns 5000 coins with max bet. I'm curious to know what the percentage is on that.

    Thanks!

    If it's not Regulated by a gaming commission (Nevada, NJ, etc) then there's no way to truly know...

    Are you saying it's not a fair game (with random cards)?

    Those online casinos can mess with you unless it's a legit one. I don't live in a state where online gambling is legal so I don't even fool with that. But if it is legal and legit I would think you could find the regulations online to see if it's really VP or a glorified slot with crappy odds.

    It's definitely a possibility. It depends on the casino. If it was Bovada, I would probably trust it.

    And also since it's an 8/5 paytable, I probably trust it more to be "fair" as well as it's a healthy take for the house if it is "fair".

    With a 5000 coin Royal, the max return for 8/5 DDB is 97.31%.

    Optimal strategy is listed in the link below:

    The UK online casinos have a pay button on each game and if you scroll through it then on one page it tells you what the payback percentage is. Not sure if other online, for money, casinos do the same but they may well do.

    Thanks guys. At 97% it feels like it's probably fair. That's what I was trying to figure out. If payback was over 100 then I would doubt it. I have started to practice on it for single line pennies. At least this way if I hit a big hand I get 20 or 50 bucks instead of just a screenshot. Plus I can use that for sports bets.
