Pair Fortunes Side Bet
On This Page
Pair Fortunes is one of the few sides bets available for pai gow tiles. If the player gets at least one pair, he wins. He wins even more for two. Wins range from 3 to 300 to 1. I noticed the bet at the Palace Station in Las Vegas in 2014.
The following table shows the possible outcome of the Pair Fortunes, what each pays, the probability, and the contribution to the return. The lower right cell shows a house edge of 5.30%.
|Gee Joon and Heaven pairs||299||1||0.000028||0.008315|
|Gee Joon pair||8||420||0.011680||0.093437|
The top pay used to pay 300 to 1, which would increase the house edge to -0.052976.
