Im curious as to why so many keep saying XXX software is streaky. How can fair software be streaky. Its either fair and random or its not.

When talking about Vegas with my mates I never hear the likes of : Went to Casears this morning and the BJ was streaky.

Anyone please explain :D

I for one am a strong believer in streaks; and have actually proven it to myself on several occasions. I guess you could compare it to the dealer or player being "hot".

Software IS streaky. I pace my play accordingly.

But you get streaks in Vegas as well.

As Winbig says, sometimes you're hot, sometimes you're not.

Sorry I didn't comment more earlier, but I was in a rush...

The way I see it is you can either get a good table, bad table, or inbetween. You will get multiple streaks (either good or bad) on each of these. I much prefer multi-player, as you can get a good "feel" of the cards and bet accordingly.

It's really a matter of taking notice of when streaks are starting, and more important is being able to tell when they've ended.

You do get a feel for it after you've been on the table for awhile.

No personal offence meant to you, but this is absolute complete and utter piffle.

Well, believe what you want. If you advance your bet accordingly after winning each hand, drop back to the starting bet you made in the first place after losing the first hand after that streak, it does add up.

Longest online streak:

Sands of the Caribbean BJ.
At the end of the session - 2 pushes - then 22 losers in a row.
Checked the playlog details - posted at CM last year

Longest B&M casino - I believe 14 losses in a row at the Stardust in LV many years.

I had three BJ in a row on an IGT machine in Rock Isalnd, IL.

Funny I do not count wins in a row.

What does it add up to?

You're talking about a series of independent events.

Agreed.I also like those who believe that if you join a table who has a winning streak on going that you are likely to ruin it :D.

Nah, I'm not talking superstition or crap like that....mearly pointing out that one can really take advantage of winning streaks (> 2 hands) with the proper bets. Nothing more.

Some posters here have all the experience but still believe the earth is both flat and the centre of the universe.

They simply cannot open their minds to the possibility that someone else has found a niche to create an advantage against the house.

Ignore them and continue with your efforts.

I use a 'system' (my own) to exploit the 'trends' of online casino software - very succesfully. Many here would simply rubbish my comments - well let them, I am winning the money they are losing and I thank them for their lack of vision.

Please forgive those of us who have knowledge of mathematics, statistics and probability. We really can't help ourselves.

If you think casinos are both corrupt enough to rig their games, but at the same time too damn stupid to do so in a way that YOU can't exploit ... then I have a bridge in Brooklyn I'd be happy to sell you.
