    Greed will do that to you.

    I have done what you did 4-5 times and it took that long to learn my lesson. While you may have only lost 30 it feels like a huge, huge loss.

    Hope you recover.

    I would have stopped when I was at 800. Then again, it is easy to say that. In that situation I may have played on. Greed is a Mo Fo!!!

    Gonna be a "to the wire" decision. As you know I'm not that loaded right now but Friday early morning I'm going to the airport to try and get a last minute flight on either the 6:20 AM or the 10:15 AM ones going out. It is very possible I could wrangle up a $50 seat and if so I'm out.

    This has worked before and I am hoping it goes Friday.

    I noticed while playing that when you increase wager amount the probability of winning decreases. This has been the case at numerous sites.

    losing 29 out of 30 hands is not enough proof? Someone who has never played blackjack in their life would not do that in a live casino. When a roulette wheel hits 17 straight reds that was all I needed to see. Any real casino I have ever been in the most I have seen on the board is 9 straight of one color. Not to say it can't happen, but that doesn't happen once every hour. It's all computerized aka predetermined.

    At least in the real life casino you can give the dealer a hard time when you are running cold, talk to ladies at the table while getting free drinks, see them change out dealers, cards, dice, etc.....the odds are still stacked against you in the real casinos, but at least you have a fighting chance.

    1) 0 & 00 Roulette has terrible odds, stay far away

    2) You have a choice of 'sides' to take (or take both sides) in Craps & Baccarat

    I like baccarat. I am just gun shy about online casinos after some bad experiences with blackjack.

    If you mean like a 777 slot machine whereas it will take 8% (and be calibrated up or down) of every dollar churned then you would be incorrect.

    I think he means that the games are fixed so the house wins. These online casinos claim to be regulated for fairness, but who are they regulated by?

    Fixed = Probabilities

    I think that you are more likely to win at a land based casino. The guy who started this thread said he lost 29 of 30 hands in blackjack after building 800 from 30

    Same story every time, first time someone plays they win and build up the bankroll, they continue to play and lose it all. They go back and play because they have built it up before and think they can win, they may make back a very small portion of what they lost, then next time they play they lose it all, etc etc etc. summary: you win a very small % just enough to keep you around, they win a very big % and steadily make money off anyone dumb enough to play in their online casino.....I have never met anyone that has consistently made money playing online casinos, but have heard and seen hundreds of stories like stated above. If you are in the 1% that makes money congratulations, 1st one I have ever met that has profited from this.
