        At land based casinos I do pretty well with blackjack and have a pretty good player knowledge of how cards add up for dealers and players.  I have seen some pretty high odds things happen in real life but NOTHING like what happens on a very frequent basis at online casinos!  If I have 19, it is very, very likely the dealer will have 20.  If I have two face cards, and the the dealer often draws 5-6 cards and hits 21 on the botton! 

        Similar frustrations????

        I believe we've touched this subject before.....have you not learned your lesson to stay away from it????  Lol, as much as I hate it and the unrealistic 7 card hits the dealer takes to beat out my 20 or push my 21, I too still play it every time, thinking that maybe.....just maybe this time it will play out like normal!! Of course nothing but toally unrealistic cards hit for the dealer 8 out of 10 hands.....and yes I actually counted...thats not an estimate!!!  [i have a huge counting problem when playing online casinos....i always count hands and slot spins just to see how many it takes to hit something......sadly I once played a slot and after 650 spins I had yet to hit a bonus round!!]

        well, me myself i have been learning about blackjack a lot and have been playing with the same set of strategy charts, and have been getting disparete results between the downloaaded software im using to learn the fun mode of the games, the real money modes of the game and the live casino, even though i think those diference are not so big like to establish a problem with online casinos, even if it might insult you, the strategy used to play could be diferent, it said that strategy systems of other games end up working real well on some casinos and quite bad on some other, that's why people who believe on the industry use various casinos to play, casinos from big companies, usually public companies, based on license requiered locations and so and so...

        hope it helps

        there could be two factors influencing the game the fact that the strategy charts that you are using are not aligned with the casino, i.e. the rules used to design the strategy chart are diferent that the ones used on the casino, you could go to wizzardofodds.com for more on that, or it could be that the like choco.coke said they simply dont work for the casino you are using, its a non sense but its like that, there are a bunch of other sites over the internet for that you could try also, blackjack-advanced.com for variuos types of strategy charts..

        Yeah, Satans, we seem to have covered this one before. 

        I really like blackjack, but online seems SO different than real life.  For example, I played a little this morning.  The first 3 out of 4 dealer/s hands hit 21 on 3 plus cards!  Come on! lol!  I got $5 bucks ahead and QUIT!

        The problem with online casinos is the fact that each time you play a new game of blackjack.  It reshuffles the whole deck or shoe. It's not like a realistic land based casino where once the shoe is shuffled it stays the way it is until the next shuffle.  Even then I've also been informed after the cards are dealt that the shoe or deck goes back to being shuffled until you make you move.  So in all honestly would I expect online blackjack to play the same as land based casinos heck no.  I could expect some days varying on how the RNG is playing a hell of a day, and other days expect a little up and down then down, the sometimes completely a down spiral of nothing.  So I suppose I have kind of stopped playing online blackjack for two reasons.  For one the odds do seem a bit stacked up against me even with a 99% return rate that these casinos advertise.  Two most of the bonuses provided don't favor blackjack very well.
