Blackjack online is rigged becuase you playin against the house not other players where the site recvd rake for that..ve careful with blackjack on carbon..you can always request blackjack and casino games to be disabled if you are tempted..gl
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.
I got a promo from intercasino 10$ free could make only 2 bets and lost both in a row in blackjack im not stupid to deposit and play casino i think its just too random to play against a computer chances of winning overall are low i rather play online poker with real people
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!

Online I think the house has the advantage. They can program the software in they favor and we will never know.
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.
Cool i shall check it out i need the tips! im gonna be playing blackjack live in march going to goa on this cruise called casino royale. The mininum buyin for poker is like $ 250 so im only gonna be playing blackjack and a bit of roulette there
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.
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.
