Are you asking about live or online?
Online I think the house has the advantage. They can program the software in they favor and we will never know.

Live, well it all depends. If you sit with players that split face cards or hit when dealer is showing a 6, that is odds against you.

Its hard to answer your question cuz you are not being specific enuf.

I am afraid sometimes ppl are really lucky/unlucky. i watched a guy win 39 hands in a row at blackjack in a casino last year. now i have not calculated the odds on that but i am pretty sure its in the billions. maybe theres a case for online blackjack tho

There are certain casinos which statistical analysis has shown have rigged blackjack games! Check out wizardofodds.com for that kind of info. But I'd say most are OK. Lately the Player's Only BJ seems rigged. I'm testing it out with thousands of hands.

Doesn't need to be rigged. House already has an edge so there's no need. Blackjack is an incredibly swingy game and you can make or lose money fast. In the long run, you will always lose.

I dont recommend playing BJ on Carbon. I have been beat a bunch there. Now Cake has a good BJ table. I turned 3 bucks into 300 in just like 30 min.

I lost all my cash on blackjack at carbon last nite. Honestly speaking i still love carbon i made decent cash on the tables and freerolls.. Its just my fault i didnt know when to stop. Initially i was like 16$ dollars when i started i made it like 20 dollars kept going up n down after that n eventually i realised i did too many $2 buyins i dint keep any control on my balance and deserved what i got. I was trying to chase my loss but landed up losing everything but if i have a high balance in the future i would try my hand at blackjack again but be very careful just 1 buyin thats it and then play again after a like a month if i lose im gonna stick to that really i am believe me!

Both are against your odds. If you're a card counter, you can increase the odds of winning, but even at live games you'll have six or more decks shuffled, making it impossible even for veterans like Ken Uston.

Guru and I actually have a blackjack site with tons of information on the subject.

Blackjack is a -EV game unless you know how to count. You need a pretty big bankroll to make any money at it unless you luckbox your way through. It's fun as hell with the huge swings but we all know that you cannot beat the house in the long run. They have an edge and unless you count, you don't. So if you're playing online, realize that you are totally gambling and don't have great expectations that you're going to win. Play it for fun, play it for the rush and hey, maybe you can hit n' run (and won't give the house its $ money back -- but that's what we all say). And to the person who thinks one online BJ game is different than another online BJ game with the exact same rules, you are wrong. You just got lucky.

Just don't play it until losing money doesn't bother you. Then you might can win big, but if 100-500 bucks or so is all you got then stay far far away. The best thing about BJ is the rush, and that is what suckers you in. Next thing you know your either very lucky, or one of the many crushed and broke.

No house game needs to be rigged, online or otherwise. It might seem that way, but that's how blackjack goes. Also, not all blackjack games are equal -- some have better rules than others (surrender, resplit, etc). Betfair's Zero blackjack is apparently one of the fairest games online. Just bcuz the edge is small, doesn't mean you can beat the house. Even if the house had NO edge, they still have more money than you.

Online is totally rigged, and anyone who thinks otherwise should say how much they've made
. As for live, I don't think it's "rigged," but if you consistantly make a huge profit from counting or other types of strategies, you will be dealt with or asked to leave, no matter how much people say they don't do it anymore. It's bull that casinos do it, but they just want to make money, which is understandable. There should be some type of legislation (after online poker
) to fix that.

I used to question the integrity of the software on some sites esp after losing an unreal number of consecutive hands when you have 20 and the dealer is showing a bust card. But then I realize that it's very probable that the dealer can run hot just like the player can. That's blackjack for ya. As far as counting goes in land-based casinos, I heard it's tolerated in Atlantic City.

No need to be rigged, at least live. I don't trust ANY of these sites online for that.

All games against the house live ALWAYS have a slight advantage anyhow. Sure, you can win big quick if your lucky, but 95% of people who play them lose.

Absolutely no point in even bothering unless your doing it for fun.

Online blackjack for sure is rigged, without a doubt. Now real life, it is the easiest casino game to win money. In live blackjack you can get an edge AGAINST the house if you have a table full of players that know what they are doing.
