    Some players have reported that when playing BJ at Party Poker they get paid for a $1 bet, no matter how much the orginal bet was; and splits and double downs may not register correctly.

    Watch your payouts kids. The blackjack may be buggy.

    Heres the best advice, just dont play it. The images can be easily removed and there are nothing but horror stories in the poker forums about bankrolls destroyed by Party blackjack. Although it is a huge short term bottom line boost to Party Gaming in the long run the fish will get crushed by playing under bankrolled for their bets effecting the long term quality of games. At least that is my opinion on it.

    I'm sure the blackjack software is fine. But with those rules, what do you expect your outcome to be????

    BJ is a a game of negative win expectations.
    However
    PP is using the same software as Starluck which has had known bugs for years.

    Can hardly wait for PartyCasino. LOL

    The fact that they never even responded or announced any correction to the basic proof their video poker was bugged/rigged is disturbing. I doubt the Party blackjack is rigged though, every time you bet $1 you lose about 1 cent. Its not hard for a player to lose $500-$1000 with a quickness playing a short bankroll for the size of bets.

    Do yourself a favor. If you are tempted to play that game go to the images file and delete ay file having to do with this. If you go to view thumbnails you will see all the sidebet and blackjack images.

    Obviously, but compare this to Vegas Strip Blackjack on MG. The rules here kill you compared to those.

    I personally have had bad experiences playing blackjack at PartyPoker - I'm not trying to complain but statistically it is impossible for PP to win as much as they did against me (lost 8 and 9 hands in a row many multiples of times) and with such improbable draws (way too many 5 and 6 card 21's for the dealer.) I do have all my hand logs stored at PP which at some point I intent to put into excel and calculate the probability of me actually recieving a fair game.

    Additionally - I have seen the dealer many times pay me for only a portion of my bet - I've called PartyPoker about this and they "assured me" that I was mistaken and didn't actually bet the said amount. But, what I realized happens (which is an error within PP's software) is that if you click the "deal" button within a few milliseconds of adding a wager the last wager will not be counted BUT will be shown on the screen.
    For example:
    If I bet $50 in two $25 chips and I click deal as the second chip enters the wager spot, then visiually my bet will show $50 but the program will actually register is as $25 (This is a fact). They will pay you only for $25 if you win and only deduct $25 from you if you lose.

    Needless to say I will NEVER play BJ at PartyPoker again - My personal recommendation for a place to play BJ is GoldenPalace (I might have a bias though considering I had a nice run there where I turned $50 into $3000) .

    What rules differ? I stopped playing @ Party awhile back, way before they got rid of the skins.

    Admitted software was no good in the past. No one raised an eyebrow. This firm are big enough to right all wrongs and go forward legit and prove it.

    Maybe 1 day it will be monetarily beneficial to do so.
