A video amusement gaming system with pool prize structures including remote game terminals and a central controller with two-way communications between the remote game terminals and the central controller. Prize awards are based upon random shuffling of a set of prize awards among a predetermined pool of plays for each remote game terminal. This ensures an equal distribution of prize awards to each remote game terminal. The shuffling of prizes is based upon a random seed produced either by the remote terminal of the central controller or by both.
