# Blackjack Run at Playtech

I'm not ready to call this a "complaint" yet, but am interested in what others (math gurus included) would think. Apart from the common belief that Playtech cheats, what are the chances of the following happening in a 26-hand run:

L, L, W(on my doubledown), L, W

W(BJ), W(on my doubledown), L(double, dealer 21), L(dealer 21), L(dealer 21)

L(dealer 21), L(dealer 21), L, W(BJ), L

L(dealer 21), P, W, L, W

L, L(dealer 21), L(dealer 21), L(dealer 21), W, L(dealer 21)

That's 10 dealer 21s out of 26 hands, with a streak of 5 in the middle and 3 towards the end. Not to mention 17 losses out of the 26.

I understand it's a small sample, but am curious about any comments on the math.

Hi MacGyver:

Though I don't know if any or all of the previously mentioned (10) Dealer 21's were Blackjacks, this is how that particular strand would look. If you want to go to their History page and take the screen shots of the 26 hands I'll be happy to compile it into a trend scroll. Have a good one.

I will take my money and run!

I've attached the scroll for that session and I've got to admit that was one hell of a wild session. I've never seen so many ways for the dealer to be making drawn out 21's. Have a good one.

Added after the fact. I should probably say that the strand in this instance has been recorded in reverse order of the scroll. I didn't catch it until just now. Have a good one.
