Hi

It came to my eye that there was a player betting on a accredited private table. I was betting side bets and the suited trips came out, but suddenly a players next to me bets thus taking 1 of the trips and then suddenly disappears. Like the casino send a fake player to take away the trips. Also at this casino I got logged out a lot suddenly when I was hitting on slots and afterwards it said things like ''you won 16 euros on freespins'', but the bonus game didn't continue after I refreshed the game. Thats not normal right?

I get suspicious of this i never believe it would be fake and it's quite an accuisation but it seems it only happens when I am about to hit big.

Depends on the provider of the slot, example games from red tiger do not save the bonus and you get a popup saying you won so much in a previous spin.

I don't understand the logic of what you are saying.

Cards are only dealt after betting time has been completed. Any additional cards are only dealt after a bet has been placed. There can be a slight delay between the physical images you see and the computer generated images that appear on the screen, like chips and representation of the cards, but I've not heard of such a delay that would result in what you experienced.
Given you also experienced some lag with your slot play it may have been a common issue.

Name the casino and the live casino software platform being used.

There's a large conference coning up next week, so i can ask the supplier how their software handles lags and whether it's possible for what you experienced to happen.

So OP you think the casino knows the exact order of all the cards in the shoe, and their software generated a fake player for one hand as the software knew the next 3 cards were going to be identical resulting in a large sidebet win (Im guessing "top 3" sidebet).

I doubt that even if they were rigging their game that it would be that sophisticated.

Would theoretically be possible casinos/game providers using some fake players to "mess up" the game by taking cards when suitable (card counting), it another hand would take quite some resources and also playing for house instead yourself would make others in table wonder if that would be ongoing trend in somebodys tactics.

Increasing house edge would be possible but doing it big, would probably have got much more attention from other players. Doing it randomly there and then wouldn't make that much difference in game where house have quite good edge and players with card counting strategies do get banned by provider (who do catch certain behavior by themselves or requested by casino operator.

Don't really believe that any big provider would take that step with risk vs reward level available, getting busted means out of business right away and most probably sanctions for scamming players.
