Hello. I don't wish this to come across as I'm accusing companies, im just curious for clarification

It claims to be 99.6

I cant help but feel that I'm given 11 as a trap to double down then get an ace then see the dealer not bust on 14.

I've just frustrated by the hands dealer up card picture 99% of the time. The dealer seems to have 20 95% of the time. The rest of the time it's 21 . If the dealer somehow does turn over 15 or 16 then you can bet your life a 5 and 6 comes

Yet my hands constantly bust on 15 and 16 and lost count the number of times I've lost 20 by the dealer hitting to 21

I understand that it's meant to be rng millions of hands and that it's best not to play but if these hands were dealt in a bricks and mortar casino all hell would break loosr. It doesn't seem mathematically possible sometimes. I've read land based is 99% and average online is 99.5 but I don't get that experience at all.

If you play perfect strategies then it should indeed be around the 99.5% RTP depending on the rules. Obviously don’t play any side bets to keep it that high.

I have to admit something does seem a little off with online, they don’t seem to bust from 13-16 as much as they should, get crazy amount of 20’s but rather than putting it down to the casino cheating, eg manipulating the shuffle, sky for example bring a new 8 deck from somewhere else every shuffle with no proof it isn’t pre manipulated or even full sets etc, I have put it more down to the awful standard of play by other players that seems to help the dealer.

For example I have lost count how many times I see people split 4’s 5’s 10’s etc when in fact dealer would have bust if they hadn’t etc. Yes I know it shouldn’t affect your RTP if you stick to perfect play but other players do seem to really help the house a lot.

Another key difference generally online compared to land based is that in the uk for example the dealer does not get the second hole card until every player has played which I have always found that easier even when I don’t actually think that really changes the odds at all.

Like everything online if you truly think it’s a bit dodgy don’t play at those casinos is my advice.

Anything controlled electronically is bound to be rigged. I have watched electronic roulette for long enough to know it’s bent, without question.

I even used to deal with a guy before he owned online Casinos that admitted to me that the BJ and Roulette, keep way more than the house edge and that is a fact!

Oh definitely a fact.

Everything is bent.

I mean you’ve got to be crazy to play anything on line because it’s all bent and corrupt.

Except pragmatics. They are all above board and amazing games.

Let's put it this way. Over my almost 10 years here, I have seen hundreds of rigged and bent style threads, heck I've probably started a few (memory ain't great these days :oops:) and contributed to most of them.

What I have decided is that we cannot all be mad, conspiracy theorists, creating patterns in our imagination, bad losers, seeing things, etc, etc etc

Nope what seems a lot more likely is that we are spot on but sadly without proof (one day!) because they disguise it so well or if not that, confidently know we cannot prove anything, bit like the opposite style members cannot prove that things are perfectly legit, its just a pointless game of back and forth which never ends.

Before any software or casino defenders jump on my back, it is a waste of time typing, I have my beliefs and know what my brain and eyes tell me, nope I am not mad, I have cut my play right back past 2 years or so and avoid anything that even remotely smells of riggedness.

Here are many simple casino players. Here are many marketing elements in place (supported by shills). But there is nothing wrong with it - such is life! Chill if one comes here and tells their casino is tested by the UKGC, Curacao, Zimbabwe, Somalia, etc., or whatever every 3 months. If it is going to be tested, they will know exactly when the visit is going to happen. ;)

Always thought similar, Schools, colleges, Uni's etc know when an OFSTED visit is looming and have plenty of time to prepare and tidy up all of their short fallings.

Casinos no different, told ECogra, UKGC, whoever is in next month, so the week before they dial up the RTPS from 80%, back to 96% and we all think its our lucky day!

Visit over, casinos told "well done, all good" and off they go, casino management dial down to 70% thinking long time before we get another visit / audit. - Back to being shafted and ass raped

Dodgy as .....

Ps: No points for guessing I've not long busted out on a semi decent balance lol :oops:

I made thousands off electronic roulette and can confirm it isn’t bent. That is also fact.
