Hello everyone,

I was wondering what are good sites to play blackjack. I have read alot of good things about 32 red, but is that agood place for BJ.

My previous experience is only at Golden Palace. I was once up $1500 and then lost it all, and then some. i still like GP but after browsing this forum i wonder if it is time to get away from a playtech casino. plus, i do realize my inexperience at the time when i was at GP. i should have quit when i was so much ahead, but lately i cant catch a break. not even a small one. very frustrating! and i follow basic strategy very strictly.

also, does anyone have any opinions or experience playing at grand banks casino ( NOT Casino grand banks)

thanks in advance for your feeback

I'm not a BJ player personally, but aside from a good game, you also want a good casino and as you have noticed, you can't go far wrong at 32Red for service.

I think you may find that Harrods casino has the best odds of any casino (0.06% house edge if memory serves me right) for BJ, though i believe there may be a minimum $10 per hand bet. Someone else can probably confirm. They too are a highly respected operation who also offer some great promos from time to time.

Cheers

Simmo!

Best blackjack games online: Global Player Las Vegas Strip classic, only available once a month on Freaky Friday, 0.2% player's edge + 0.2% comp points.
Boss Media single deck BJ, 0.14% player's edge, typically no comp points and does not count towards the wagering requirements on bonuses. Not all casinos have it, but it can be found at Pharaoh's casino and at a few others.
Cryptologic single deck, 0.07% house edge, comps depend on the casino. Usually high minimum bet, $25/25 at Inter, Omni and Sands have $15 minimum, Ritz casino 5.
Microgaming single deck, 0.11% house edge, but you can still get 0.1% comp points at many casinos. It is only available at a few casinos in the Viper version (Vegas Villa, Desert Dollar, Thunderluck) under the name Classic Blackjack, but you can play it in the flash casino or in the old download casino if you still have it.

If memory serves, doesn't the dealer win on ties in double exposure? So you'll end up hitting a lot of 20s when the dealer shows two tens.

Online blackjack is rather streaky. I prefer non-MG casinos, since Microgaming only offers single hand bj (its multihand version is the European version).

Some faves -

Bodog and casino-on-net. Bodog offers 20% recurring bonuses, plus you can use the funds for sports betting and poker. Casino-on-net offers a very lucrative comp and bonus program. Downside to both is that you have to wait a week for your funds to "clear" before withdrawing.

Wagerlogic casinos - e.g. William Hill, Sands of the Caribbean, Omni, and Intercasino. While some of these have had various complaints, I've always received my monies when I withdrew. All four offer monthly bonuses (Sands and Omni offer a bonus which is given AFTER you reach a certain amount of wagering), and a 2-3 business day timeframe for receiving withdrawals, which is great when you're hoping to use the funds later in the week. All four also offer comps, with Sands and Omni pooling comp points since both are part of the Peak group.

Assuming that is true, and the casino does NOT disclose that there are an inordinate number of aces (similar to Spanish 21, where the disclosure that all tens are removed, leaving only jacks, queens, and kings as ten value cards), then the game would certainly be "rigged", albeit to "favor" the player.

Not sure if I would ever feel comfortable with any sort of rigged game, especially since the casinos' long-term goal is to ensure that players lose.

Would you care to provide some evidence?
