    May I please ask some questions of those here who have reasonable experience of Microgaming software-based blackjack online casinos. Have you played (at various casinos) the "practice" version of Atlantic Gold or similar blackjack (both surrender and non surrender versions) then compared the payouts, outcomes and dealer edge with the live/real cash version of the exact same game with exactly the same strategy, exactly similar wagers, and similar bank roll? There appear to be perhaps two versions of the practice game modes: the "arcade" practice mode and often the "member practice" mode which look similar but one is flash based and the other is possibly based on download software. The cash/real play versions are nearly always downloadable versions rather than flash versions. The crux of my question is whether you see a MARKED difference in outcomes between practice mode and real cash play mode.

    In particular I am interested in the way the software handles player doubling down, and the frequency of dealer 10s followed by another 10.

    I look forward to any responses. Thank you.

    One of the standards for accreditation here is that practice play (or play for fun) and real play must be the same.

    There are many accredited Microgaming casinos here, and are a very popular and major platform.

    Yes, thanks and I realise that. The questions still stand though.

    Actually I do have another question. Does anyone know the odds against a blackjack (online) dealer NOT busting in 20 consecutive hands, assuming the software is truly random?
