Would you trust this casino?

    You walk into a casino in Atlantic City, Las Vegas, or your favorite city. You sit down to a game of blackjack. You give your money and you get your chips and you start playing. The dealer starts dealing but you don't see the shoe! There is a mean looking Mr. Arengee handing the dealer the cards in each round but only after doing split-second glances at your and other player's bets. Mr. Arengee often disappears behind a curtain and that is when those cameras overhead whirl into motion behind the dark reflective glass. You wonder what is going on? Mr. Arengee is now handing the dealer cards from a slot in the curtain after the initial two cards were dealt to you and the other players at your table. Would you trust this land-based casino?

    It is the same way with online casinos. You don't see the cards. In the face of the coming regulation of online casinos in the US, what changes can online casinos make to where people can trust them to deal independent and fair online gambling games?

    Maybe actual audits. I don't trust that the audits are credible or even being done at all. My slot results have become way to predictable.

    I don't play slots but I am pretty sure that the table games I play are fair. My results don't seem any different than when at a brick/mortar casino. I know there have been players who have taken hundreds of thousands of hands and analyzed them and the win% is where it should be. I know some people here talk about big bets losing more frequently i.e. being rigged. I don't know if thats for sure true. My GF hit a straight flush on 3 card with a $100 PP bet. I know another guy who was playing multiplayer vp with 2 per hand and hit a +20k RF. So, I can't get on board with this just yet.
    I do think that a true, auditing companies should be used. Having multiple companies do the same audit and all reveal findings at the same time to avoid any hankypanky.

    I generally shy away from the idea that the more reputable casinos are rigging their games, but after calculating the odds of one incident I had at an (accredited) RTG, I myself am not certain I trust them as much.

    I was playing pontoon (a blackjack variant) and the dealer got FIVE pontoons in a row after I upped my bets significantly.

    Assuming there is a 4.75% chance of getting an initial pontoon (You must register/login in order to see the link.), the odds of this happening are .00002% (1 in 50,000). Of course, I'm not an expert, and am not sure what exactly the implications of that number are. Just saying what happened and how uneasy it made me.

    Audits conducted for regulated online casinos should adhere to Government Accountability Office (GAO) standards and be available for public review via the FOIA process. I doubt audits conducted right now are not up to these standards and are certainly not available to the public.
