I am typing this as I have seen "a few players" moaning about black jack in chat and the occasional ones in here. Hopefully my findings will help or offer a little insight.

Firstly take the Blackjack percentages table that people say is the bible of how to play and cram it where the sun does not shine - this is not the real world, it doesnt work.


1. The "White Flicker of Doom"

Playing on a laggy machine it becomes VERY easy to see. The scenario is, you have just won 3 or 4 hands in a row. Then as you press the "Are you sure you want to gamble a large amount and take the shaft" button, the screen suddenly flickers, yes seriously it flickers, at this point you know something has changed in the logic.

From now on you will lose regardless. It will probably dump you with a low card while it will hit 20,21,Natural or Charlie.

This will continue for the next few hands, it will always outclass you.

It will also have the ability to hit 21 from card values 4,5,6 or 7 while you sit smiling with 2 face cards thinking you're safe on 20.

2. Then there is the "Please Come Back Gesture" we play fair honest..ho ho ho.

Shortly after royally giving it to you in a very harsh way, you drop the amount you bet and suddenly you will find yourself winning some crazy hands. Amazed at this, you increase the bet and "blamo" pass the Vaseline its rogering you yet again and laughing while doing so sucker.

3. The NPC "Ha Ha you've lost, I have to freeze and laugh at you moment"

This happens when you "hit me" and the NPC is dealing you a card. You know you have lost as the screen goes blank and freezes while it laughs at you and waits for a while - leaving you just enough time to think "crap!". Then of course it refreshes and you have been dealt a killer card. Which is then usually followed by my next point:

4. The "Final insult over and over"

Basically after a spate of hands where the dealer has an uncanny amount of face cards to start with and you have the 4,5 or 6, then draw another card to get a maximum of 15 or 16 then of course you lose by busting. *takes deep breath* The dealer will then go about showing you how its done. It will show a 4,5 or 6 and every time it does, it will play the perfect 20,21 or even 5 carder just to rub it in, again while you have respectable 18,19 or 20 just enough to beat you.

So after these pointers and helpful tips (You're welcome)

Simple advice, if you want a laugh and know you are going to lose money, play Blackjack. Everyone knows it is rigged and biased against you, dont post in the forums or chat channels - it was once "shock horror news" now its so common place people wont care. It wont help trying to have a debate that you won or lost, it is irrelevant, it is here to take money.

BUT if you are looking to make money, USE THE BOOKIES, these are real life events and cannot be altered. You may lose, but at least you know it was an honest loss.


Hopefully this post will maek a few smile and others ponder.

By the title, I thought this was one of Ched's multi's trying to convince us to play BJ. Agree on all points, once you get tired of losing money switch to bookies. R+

For the last two days I've been in profit playing blackjack check out my sig.

But I can't see this lasting long, either I will get greedy or the system will just stop paying out. I'm only betting reasonably small amounts of money though so maybe that's by I am having a little bit of success.
