    online casinos

    I know we debate this all the time, but really? 8 hands at 25$, I win 6. Normal for a casino. Step it up for 100 a hand, four 20's and a 21 by dealer. Yaeh, thats legit.

    You can't really test the legitimacy of an online casino through a sampling of 12 hands. What casino (or more specifically what software) was it?

    I won 8K recently at a sportsbook rated A at SBR, though I have lost 12K in aggregate, so i am down 4k, to this book, but I have yet to request a payout.

    Anyone think I will see any problems?

    there is no way for us to honestly know how legit a online casino is,
    Im not saying its RIGGED! But personally myself if im gonna lose i wanna see someone shuffel my cards and deal them live and lose than trust an online shuffler

    Statistically meanignless, I'm afraid.

    Online blackjack is pointless anyway. There's one optimal strategy, and you're betting at negative EV. Why bet when the rational expectation is to lose?

    True Story: I played online Blackjack at Bodog last October. I had a balance of roughly $8,975. Don't let the high balance fool you, I was really about even. I wasn't able to withdraw because of that ACH electronic check hold bullshit. Anyway, I wanted to get to a balance of $9,000. To make a long story short I lost $8,975 in about 40-50 minutes. It was probably the worst night of my life. I don't care what anybody says, ONLINE BLACKJACK IS A SCAM- STAY AWAY!!!

    I dont trust it either, even if you are playing for low stakes, it seems like they will let you win until you start betting higher, and then BOOM you get rocked for like a ridiculous 16 losses in a row lol

    Played online Blackjack once and it got a bit out of hand. Wanted to just play with some "excess" I had before I cashed out. Was betting 5 dollar hands and after a couple was down 10, so I bet 10 lost bet 10 again lost, bet 20 lost, 30 lost, 30 lost, 50 lost, 150 lost, 300 lost, 600 lost. never have even looked at blackjack online again.

    Dude I have a similar story though not quite as much money, I lost about 3600 in 8 mins on Bodog 3 years ago, considering my whole roll was about 5k it was also a terrible night, smartest thing you can do in gambling is disable the casino as soon as you open up a sportsbook account, a couple months ago I broke that rule and played in the Las Palmas casino that I had signed up with in order to play the BTP contest, that mistake cost me 700 in about 20 mins, online casinos are complete rigged scams, trust me, I know. Your results in a real casino will not be good, gambling in a casino unless you count cards is not a smart bet, it's entertainment, you go there with a couple friends, get drunk for free and hope to win or lose a couple hundred and prolly 3/5 times if you play optimal strategy you lose and that's the price you pay BUT the results you get in online casinos are fukin brutal, dealer instantly becomes a 20/21 machine every time you raise your bet, making it a vacuum for money, b/c you will be getting normal results betting 5 bucks a hand and say well this is fair I think I'll toss 50 on this hand and see if I can win a little, instantly you go on an ice cold streak and the natural tendency is to raise your bet the more you are down trying to get even which causes you to go broke in no time. I completely agree with the OP ONLINE BLACKJACK IS A SCAM --- STAY AWAY!!! After years of betting online I believe the casinos are the real money makers for the sportsbooks, the few times I've played in them they have just robbed my ass and from threads like this it's clear I'm not alone.

    Just call and tell them you want to disable the casino, some will ask you to send them an email requesting to disable the casino but most just disable it right then

    I got 21 and still lost, that's why I know it's rigged. This was at an A+ book too.

    Were you playin double exposure, you can actually lose a 21 in double exposure, which is sick and if the dealer gets 22 that's an automatic push even if you have 21 which is sick as well, terrible game

    Real easy, look who's software they use, Google the software name, you will see if its on the square. IMO 100% of A, B, and even C rated books casinos are on the square.

    There is a better chance of the CIA not being involved in the Kennedy assasination than online BJ not being rigged. I wish I could bet on that!

    couldnt have said it better. start off just ****ing around, ur confidense goes up/as well as ur 4 per hand. Then here comes the 20/21 machine. that never happens in a real casino.
