    I assume you are talking about playing blackjack? Using the return and variance calc on my site, the chance of losing $200 in 1500 $1 BJ bets is ~1 in 40,000. Given that other players have reported similar experiences, I think there is a high probability of unfair software. I don't recognize the SW used. It may be proprietary.

    Another Costa Rican-licensed gem.

    I agree with Aka23 that the software looks proprietary (i.e. probably rigged). Lousy places can have good-looking web sites, but this place doesn't even have that - the graphics all have that cheap, grainy, highly-compressed-JPEG look to them.

    Their percentage payout report claims that blackjack pays out (or paid out) 98.15% which, as far as blackjack goes, sounds pretty horrible to me - saying nothing about the 86% ~ 87% payout that you experienced. They even list video poker as having a higher payout % than blackjack.

    I took the liberty of opening up Live Chat with them and asked them a couple of questions. "Jack" wasn't able to answer either of them honestly:

    The "Fair Gaming" page has no information about their software (other than "it's totally secure and reliable and fair and blah blah blah" propaganda).

    And while you can play blackjack from the Games Preview page, you have to sign up first - which I wasn't about to do.

    I wouldn't deposit here again Goldeneye. Hopefully you can make up the $300 from somewhere else, but don't go chasing it.

    With the risk of being blasted by others, I feel really uneasy about the BJ at the flash casinos of MG poker rooms. I have had 4 sessions of BJ where I lost a consecutive 10 hands flat betting at $1 and all this happended in the space of about 15 sessions. No harm done as this was money won at freerolls but still......

    I've had good and bad luck with that blackjack. I turned $100 into $7,000 once on the poker room Flash blackjack, but I've also had my fair share of bad luck. I was wondering about their Flash Three Card Poker the other day. I too was using freeroll winnings, and I had lost several hands in a row where I had been dealt a pair and lost, but the hand that made me leave the game was when I was dealt a flush and the dealer had a straight (which beats a flush in 3 card poker). It doesn't sound so bad now as I retell the story... I guess you just had to be there. :D

    My only comment on this... My husband is better at math than me, knows his BJ.... and after several sessions playing BJ inside the poker software... he now won't touch it.
