Let's see, the last we heard from Hit Mob was that the casino manager from the African Fair play wanted to meet him in London. Have they dug him the ultimate hole?

I strongly urge all gamblers to STAY FAR AWAY
from Atlantic Interbet. After accumulating a sample size of close to 4000 hands of BJ, the actual results differ from the theoretical (playing perfect basic strategy) by over 6 standard deviations. You can think of 1 standard deviation as marking off the central area under a bell curve representing the probability distrubution of the sample. The area encompassed by plus one and minus one standard deviation is 68.3%, or about 2/3 of the area under the curve, leaving about 16% in each tail. Two standard deviations represents 95.44% of the area under the curve with 2.28% in each tail. Three standard deviations represents 99.74% of the area with .13% in each tail.

This means that there is about one chance in a thousand that any result out by three standard deviations in one direction was the result of a random fluctuation. The chances of losing 80% of my wagers in BJ is astromical. What is the likelyhood what I expereinced was a random flux?

After visiting the toilet ensure all your bits are tucked away before doing up your zip I will say no more on this subject suffice to say they have managed to stem the blood loss and I am currently not mobile and have been assured there will not be any long term loss of feeling.

Now guess what I HAVE been payed by African foul play (nice description Steve) it took over 3 weeks nearly four and you have to ask was it Microgamings intrvention that helped or just me ranting on at all forums that assisted either way I will let you decide if you want to play there

OY ADKINS leave some royal flushes for other people will you

Timothy nice web site managed to turn that \$1000 you kindly gave me into \$7900 so nice casino too!!!!!!

OH well no doubt I will not get any sleep with all these sick people ranting and raving all night but the nurses are not bad there is only one ugly one and she knows who she is

Goodnight all

I get the feeling a LOT of online BJ plays "funny". Just count how many black jacks you get vs. the dealer. The dealer gets more black jacks EVERY session. That does not include the hands in which you busted. Don;t take my word for it, check it out yourselves. While your at it check how often you hit a ten when hitting to a 12. For me it's always over 50%. Compare that to how often you hit a 10 when doubling. For me 25%.
I've just about given up on online BJ.

Snake eyes ?????

which casino software is scamming you

##### Dormant account
Ha Ha Ha. No I still have not been paid from Caesars gold ripoff online casino. My bank has been investigating their transaction numbers for almost a week now. They are slow as pig shit.

So maybe in the next 30 days or so, I will get paid. Meanwhile, the torpedo is now ranked high on my list. I will let you know how long it takes to get the money.

Its my humble opinion that most turnkey software
providers have programmed the games to CHEAT the player. The games are rigged, or manipulated,
to give the house a much large than normal advantage. Turnkey providers make a large percentage of thier licenceed profits. If a provider has several licencees, there is great incentive to cheat. After all, THERE IS NO REGULATION ! Without regulation, its a license to STEAL. They can steal your hard earned money without you even knowing it, or even if you do know it, YOU ARE UNABLE TO PROVE IT!

Game manipulation exists everywhere in the internet gaming industry. Certain providers give thier licencees the abiltity to "tune" the odds,
while most say nothing to thier licencees, and adjust the odds themselves. They experiment around to see just how far they can go. It has been proven that its actually MORE PROFITABLE to cheat the player than to run an honest game.
Quick short term profits go immediately into advertising. The result of the advertising is to bring in more and more new suckers to play the rigged games. This results in even higher profitablility, and a good 50% of the profits go straight back into advertising again. Its a vicious cycle that never ends, and allows cheating casinos to make enormous amounts of \$\$.

Dave, I agree about the no regulations. It sounds like to me that you just discribed Handa Lopez's casino software.

I think that microgaming, starnet, and boss media casinos are honest. The reason I say this is because I have won alot of money in these casinos.

There are very crooked casino operators out there with rigged games. It is up to us the player, to decide the good ones from the bad ones

I would stick with well known casinos and software.

The problems I have experienced with blackjack are mainly Microgaming casinos that I have played at for a while. The thing thats most noticable is the number of Blackjacks player receives vs the dealer. I have never pulled more blackjacks than the dealer in any session of over 50 hands. The more hands per session the higher the ratio too. The only way I can win is by wining the bigger bets as the dealer usually wins more hands. I've deviated from basic strategy when it comes to hitting a 12 vs dealers 12 or 13. I don't hit the 12.
Anyway I would really like to know if anyone else has noticed the same unequell distribution of blackjacks.
