    I just read a very strange thing at the respected gambling site, wizardofodds.com

    "Kudos to Boss Media for offering a game with a player advantage" and

    "This game has a player edge of 0.11%. To add 0.03% to the player edge follow my basic strategy exceptions"

    From You must register/login in order to see the link.

    If I understood it properly due to my poor english, the player has an advantage of a total of 0.14%, wich seems very odd.
    I also understood that Boss media is a very respectable software provider, and most of their casinos are very well run.

    I guess playing one deck BJ can't be seen as cheating or abusing them in any way, since they obviously created the game with a players advantage in the first place. Or have you heard of people having problems there?

    Cryptologic casinos (like Intercasino) also offer the single-deck blackjack, but the minimum bet you can place is $25.

    Haven't played a Boss casino in a while, though, so don't know if they do something similar.

    The Crypto game has a house edge, 99.93%, while the the Boss game has a "player edge", at 100.1%. Last time I checked, you could bet as low as at least $5 a go. Needless to say, I recommend you don't go anywhere near this game.

    Due to wizardofodds.com the cryptologic one deck Blackjack doesn't give the player an advantage. Although the casino just have 0.07% edge, but you won't win in the long run obviously.

    Global Player has the best single deck game I know of, but only 1 day each month on Freaky Friday. Las Vegas classic has 0.17% player's edge if I remember correctly and you can earn 0.2% comp points. Reno blackjack is also single deck but has a house edge of 0.35%, pretty much the same as all the other blackjack games there.

    Boss Media SD BJ has a player's edge of 0.14%, I don't know of any casino that gives comp points for it. The now defunct Atlantic Casino had a different version not found anywhere else, where the dealer hit soft 17 and only allowed doubling on 9-11, which gave the casino the edge.

    Crypto SD BJ has 0.07% house edge, so if you can find a casino giving comps at the rate 0.1%, this game is in your favour, but most of them give comps at the 1/2 of their usual rate now, so the casino would still have a minuscule edge. The table minimums are usually high, $25 at Inter, 25 (about $43) an Inter UK, $15 at Omni and at the Sands, but only 5 (about $8) at the Ritz.

    Microgaming single deck blackjack can still be found in the flash casino, in the old download software, and in the viper versions of Vegas Villa, Thunderluck and Desert Dollar. If you use the Wizard's single deck exceptions, the house edge is about 0.1%, so if you get comp points at the rate of 0.1%, then it is an almost perfectly fair game.

    So you say, if I understood you properly, that the Pharaoh casino, accredited here at casinomeister with Boss media as their software provider would cheat in some way to push the odds in their favor.

    I think that would he highly unlikely. If they would cheat in some way they probably would refuse to pay out some winnings or something similar. I mean changing the software in any way is very serious.

    That's what I remember specifically about Intercasino, though I can't personally check with my account since I don't have any money in there right now.

    I'll double-check it around the 1st of March when I'm back there. :thumbsup:

    Yes, you understand me correctly.

    LOL, not exactly: refuse to pay winnings, get dragged through the forums, get blacklisted across the board, lose affiliates etc etc - as opposed to putting a completely unverifiable fix into the game, unsubstantiatable without long trials that noone, realistically, would ever conduct, and as such leaving the provider untouchable.

    Err...that'd be a "no".

    Since your tone implies that Boss are "reputable": read about the Boss Media 100K jackpot theft at WOL:

    You must register/login in order to see the link.

    If you want to play single deck, play Crypto or Microgaming.

    Forget Boss.

    I just got the reputable impression of boss since both the casinomeister and the wizardofodds has that opinion. At the wizarofodds you can read that Boss media is one of the most secure places to have your money, and also that none of their casinos is run badly. I belive he worked there as well previously so he would know.

    The single complaint you refered to makes me feel that we haven't heard the whole story of the issue. It's not the first time people claim to get jackpots.

    In the end I wonder how the most reputable gaiming sites on the internet can claim that Boss is good if that wouldn't be true?
    As said previously, serious casinos are checked regulary, and if they would "cheat" in the software, this would be very serious and they would probably loose all customers.
    I mean how could they do it? Boss media is the developer, No casino have to offer the one deck game. The rules are the same as the probability odds are counted against. So that leaves us with "cheating with the cards"
    Since the cards in the cardgames comes in a random way, obviously the casino must change that to their favor and trixing with the software and that's very unlikely, I don't even think they have access to that (why should they), wich leaves us to the option that Boss media is cheating with their own software in a game that they easily could have made non benfical for players and wich no casino have to offer. Very unlikely and in that case they have way more to loose than to win.

    It's my opinion that a software company that attempts to steal $100,000 of jackpots isn't remotely reputable. If you read the thread, you will note that not ONE single poster bought their BS excuses. If you consider a company that tries this is a "secure place to have your money", well...it's your money, lol.

    Duh, READ THE THREAD. Nobody "claimed" jackpots. Boss were found to have RESET the jackpots, ie. stolen the money. When they were caught red-handed, they put them back. This is totally undisputed.

    "Single" complaint? Yes, it was. A "single" complaint - for $100,000.
