    Do BetOnline's Slot Tournaments Bode Poorly For How Their Poker Software is Run

    I have established in my other posts how BetOnline / Sportsbetting.ag's Fruit Loot tournaments operate a slot with a RTP% below 75%. This then asks the question of whether their poker software is fair. I know there are people out there who are worried that poker software might profile players and give weaker players a boost. The theory behind this is that if weak players lose their money too quickly they will get frustrated and quit and their money won't get turned over enough to generate optimal rake. This is a fear which could always have been minimized by allowing, at least for designated tables, for hand histories (generated after the completion of hands) to show all the hole cards. This would allow for wholesale auditing to quell such fears. As far as I know Bovada and perhaps others now offer this while BetOnline / SportsBetting.ag do not.

    Quit with your nonsense. Only bad players and losers think this way. The RNG on Bovada and BetOnline are legit.

    The RNG may or may not be fine for the poker but if you've played over 50,000 spins on the slot tournaments and have kept notes (or not) it becomes very clear that the RTP is no where close to the RTP for a conventional slot. Seriously go play some free entries on these Fruit Loot tournaments at .40 a spin on auto-spin. The odds of you doubling up your chip total from 250 to 500 will be approximately zero. Do that experiment for two weeks and see if you don't have a smidgeon of doubt about the poker software. And for the record I not a loser at these slot tournaments or as a poker player and have never made any accusations against the RNG at Bovada. I am simply pointing out that hand histories could be configured to alleviate these suspicions and that the slot tournaments should give a little bit of doubt specifically in regards to BetOnline.

    In the slot tournaments you bet max and hope to hit a bonus. That's it. If you spend more than 3 minutes doing them you're doing it wrong. Who cares about the RTP in FREE slot tournaments.

    BetOnline wouldn't be hosting the slot tournaments if the entries were always free. Some tournaments offer exactly one free entry and then charge for rebuys while other tournaments cost money for all entries. So yes the RTP does matter. I wouldn't cite the mantra "If one game in the casino is rigged they all are." since there really is no requirement for a slot tournament to play any certain way. However, if you are the kind of player to have doubts about poker software, there are a lot of places to play poker besides BetOnline that are not running slot tourneys with < 75% RTP and who are not stiffing players for 5 digits.

    If you play enough slot tournaments on the same game yes it is worth it to take some notes.
