I have been playing the above via William Hill and Littlewoods. Of all the sites I play, I have never seen so many pocket bullets go down. Not mine but others. Crypto is the one to avoid methinks.

have to agree

Probably one of the worst poker networks for bad beats and there used to be a sites called totalbet and ukbetting that used cryptologic and there was a uk tv programme calle dpoker night live that brought up the subject one night of collussion and crypto was said to be uninterested in such claims even though they knew it was going on..

If you see more bad beats on Crypto (or anywhere) it means either:

A: The RNG is rigged, which would be extremely serious if true, but is almost certainly not true, as asides from it being a certainty that any network that size will have their RNG periodically tested by a third party, it's also public information which anyone can test with a big enough hand sample.

Or

B: More suckouts happen because a greater number of players get their money in bad, ie there are a lot of fish on Crypto - in which case it is a GREAT site to play at, not a bad one.

It's C, variance. Crypto is neither rigged nor fish filled. Of all non US sites it is probably the tightest due to all the nitty bonus/rakeback grinders.

Yes, or variance. I agree Crypto players are generally quite tight, but they don't really offer better rakeback than other networks. I think the main reason is actually a disproportionately high number of UK players as compared to other networks. A sweeping generalization here but I'll stand by it - UK players are typically nits.
