major flaw with dgs software spanish blackjack

    I've found a major flaw in dgs spanish blackjack game. I've found the flaw in 3/3 casinos that I have funds at/have a demo mode.

    The game is being dealt with a single spanish deck instead of six spanish decks. You never see a card that matches both rank and suit. I've played
    over 1000 hands at each site and no matches were seen. Assuming 5 or 6 cards dealt per hand you should see a match around 8% of the time.
    Missing an 8% shot 3000 times in a row is like 10^109 or so. Mathematically impossible.

    I found the flaw at heritagesports.com, thegreek.com, and sportsbookreview.com, but i assume others have the same problem.

    Any math/simulation guys care to figure out the effect on the house edge?

    You might try The Wiazard of Odds. There are not many DGS players here as since most prefer better looking software. I am very familiar with it though and consider it to be a sportsbooks most solid option. I don't play Spanish Blackjack but I can vouch for their Let it Ride ad regular blackjacks. I am assuming you probably posted something over at SBR? They have a very good relationship with DGS as well as 5Dimes.

    It looks like some other stuff is hitting the fan about BLR software right now. Check out the thread at SBR. The wizard of odds caught them too. You must register/login in order to see the link.
    Wow!

    Given this, I suspect the answer is that it has NO effect whatsoever on the house edge, since the game is rigged. If it wasn't, this would be a major advantage for the PLAYER. This strongly suggests that the entire software is rigged, rather than a very rare error having crept into a single game (craps) despite their best efforts.

    It seems they just got lazy with Spanish Blackjack, and didn't bother to rig the game to at least simulate 6 decks just in case someone was taking a close look and running stats on card appearance frequencies. It looks like other games would show similar oddities if examined closely.

    The sportsbooks running this software should act fast, else their reputation will end up down the toilet along with that of BLR.
