    [OT] Don't play those online casinos

    I lost about $200 already. Started w/ $100, and got my way upto over $200. Well, playing BlackJack I started to lose, lost over 15 hands in a row! Now i'm not no pro, but when you start off with a total of 12 or 13 majority of the time, and when you hit & always get a face card you know something is up.

    I'm ****** to say the least, but guess it taught me a lesson. So if you ever thought about trying your luck, don't. I learned the hard way.

    the same holds true for any casino, if you don't know how to gamble with restraint then don't even start

    that's why if i go to a casino i take out all my gambling money in cash BEFORE i even leave, so i know when that runs out i hit my limit and i won't be tempted to take out more than i should at an atm

        Gamble with restraint. So, do you have a limit on where you stop when you start winning? I was up over $120, and yes I shouldve stopped then. But reaching that was due to me betting a $100 hand & winning.

        I saw a disclaimer on there that anyone winning over $10,000 in one hand would be verified by a live rep. Who in the hell would bet $10,000 online in one hand? Oh well, I sent a sobbing email to the casino hoping they would reimburst my account.. Maybe they'll have some xmas love for me

        And to think I couldve bought new video card with that money. :bulb:

        Though if you would like to contribute to my gambling disaster, please feel free to submit a kind donation to my paypal account, jmargel@ptd.net

            Well first of all, basic strategy says that a 10 will be drawn 32% of the time, so just because you got a bad run doesnt mean the game was rigged. I play poker online regularly, and even toyed with the notion of going pro. The one thing Ive learned is to never bet over your means. If you lost $100 in 15 hands, that means you were betting around 7.00 a hand. thats a pretty steep bet. Theres plenty of casinos that offer $1 or even .50 tables that are a little easier to handle when you get a bad run.

              blackjack, the only card game with continual probability.
              its great if you know basic strategy and a little more, however its a lot harder than in a real casino with a 6 deck shoe.

                I was betting from $1 to $25 generally, with a very rare bet of $100. Problem was, is that the dealer would get like 2 or 3 hands in a row, so I figured I'd make a larger bet, assuming odds of a dealer getting 4 or 5 hands in a row are slim. Wrong! There is no way a dealer could win so many hands in a row w/o it being rigged.

                The casino is www.goldenpalace.com

                  by gamble with restraint i mean set a losing limit, say $100

                  as long as you keep winning keep playing, if you manage to play a few hours and you're still up then just walk away happy

                  but if you ever lose so much you lose your original $100 just quit and go to the bar, it's money better spent trust me

                  edit: it's not rigged, every casino game is set up to give the house the benefit of the odds, that's how they make their money.
                  also, increasing your bet when you're losing is the fastest way to ensure you lose all your money immediately, you want to bet large and take risks when you have winnings to burn and try to build up your pool, that way if you get on a cold streak you can weather it out with small bets until things pick up again and not be broke
                  at least that's the way i play, i'm not exactly made of money so i'm more of a defensive player when i gamble

                    What kind of cards was the dealer winning with? Im not going to go real deep into card counting (that would take a forum all to itself) but the most advantageous position is when there are a multitude of 10s in the deck, and the biggest disadvantage is with more small cards in the deck. If the dealer was getting 10s and beating you, you should have bet very small. Ive never played at goldenpalace, so I couldnt tell you their system, but somewhere on their site they should explain about their number gnerator.

                      Continual probability?

                      You mean that the chances of a specific event occuring is never ending???

                      Im not sure thats true, isnt poker the same. Or is it related in someway to how the deck(s) are shuffled or not.

                      If you mean that theres a chance of any card (event) happening all the time then that cant be true. As soon as certain cards are drawn there are instantly some probabilitys that are non existent.

                      BTW Im not nitpicking Im just really curious what you meant, I gamble a bit myself, only really on the dogs and horses though.

                        Yep, I totally agree. Take big risks once youve built a bit of profit, if it comes off for you youre laughing, and if it doesnt you could still walk away winning or at the worst walking away even.

                          This is the way I approach it. I've been to a casino a few times so take this with a grain of salt. I am no pro at it, I only go for a good time. Anyway, go to the bank and withdraw what ever you deem aceptable to lose, be it $100 or $1000. EXPECT to lose all of it before you enter the casino. If you are lucky and win a few rounds, take out what you came in with and go for broke with the rest of it. :P

                          Oh and leave the bank/credit cards at home

                            its the only game where the past directly effects the future, therefore the probability is continual. where as say texas hold em the pack is shuffled each deal, so the probability starts again.

                            eg - 6 deck shoe = 312 cards
                            youve had a few hands with a few others and only 156 cards left in shoe, you know that the probability of a hand is either going up or down depending on the cards already drawn. if youve had loads of face cards already, then you know the probability of beating the dealer is low (as majority of low cards are left, benefiting the dealer as most house stick at 17+, so a low deal is likely to the dealer, with smaller cards in the deck left giving dealer a good chance of totaling 19 - 21), flip it around, and you know the deck has lots of face cards left, you can trust you will beat the dealer as a middlish deal of say 13 -16 to dealer could bring a face card for the bust.

                            do i make sense with that? re-read it and it looks messy lol
