Cracks .............there are cracks in everything............thats what lets the light thro'
Thx for the quick reply.I'm up to 511 CP's at the moment and down to $277 playing $2 a hit.Playing on $5 was a little nerve racking with the drastic swings in EV I was seeing.I think the only reason I'm still up this much is the excellent advise I'm getting from your guide on when to twist and when to stand,the advise on doubling down has more often than not been an absolute life saver,a complete noob like me would never have thought of it all many thanx.I tell you what tho' how the dealer always shows a face card and at least nine times out of ten has another is beyond me,everytime I get blackjack the house gets it,c'mon give me a break,still its money for nothing so I really cannot grumble and in fact appreciate it immensely.Will let you know what the final score is but once again thx.

Well what started out so well ended in complete disaster on a measely $135,not bad for three days work eh?Considering the $100 was mine to begin with.Well if nothing else I've learned a lot,there is now no way on God's green earth I would ever use my own money to play on these casino's thats for sure.There were periods when I lost a straight 30 hands,no matter if I stood or took another card the outcome was always the same,I lost.And yes I followed the guide religiously,I have a 20 inch screen so I can play 4 poker tables at once so I had the guide and casino side by side.Thats another thing using OPI and Poker Android I make money all day long so all the time I was playing BJ I was losing out on the poker.I suppose if you paid the $149 and got the Blackjack bot from bonusbug you could run it while you slept,as the one thing I'm sure of and that is in all the BJ guides is to stick to the one dollar bets,DO NOT INCREASE YOUR BET.The odd person might be lucky but I think all those posts about winning big are from casino employee's.The times I hit a twelve and the dealer showed a ten,I twisted and busted always and the dealer showed twenty,time and time again over and over without end.If I got BJ the dealer got it as well,so always take the insurance in those cases.In fact in 9 out of 10 times the dealer had the BJ.Splitting the cards didn't help as the dealer simply hit 21 every time,no matter how many cards he needed,5 aces,6 two's and a four no kidding.To say I'm slightly miffed is an understatement,I don't mind a good game and losing but this was just all down hill,hands I should have easily won it just blatantly cheated,and the times it hit BJ were unreal.Right so where would you recommend now see if I cant do any better or worse,lol.

OMG the colours are disgusting :-\,it was going back in time.Tried depositing via neteller but they have to send a security code to my postal adress,then I tried my trusty debit card,Solo, just kept getting error messages to put in the start and expirary dates which I already had.Then I got a warning message from my virus scanner that casino.exe was malicious software,so probably thats why it never got thro'.Strange the AV should pick it up eh?

- You cannot win every hand, even when you play to the blackjack strategy guide card and have a slight disadvantage and hence should lose over a long period of time.
Ok let me show you, the house advantage for blackjack at bet365 is about .5% so here is the math, if you play to the strategy card (which gives you the best odds) 2,400 *.005 (.5%) = $12, so on a starting figure of
Well I bottomed out at a hundred tried to take my money out and they have told me that the money I used first was my own money.So now I have to play off the bonus,I need another 140 points before I can take any money out,bummer big time.As for the maths thats great in theory but in reality it simply does not work.If the dealer is showing a ten and he almost is everytime then you have lost no matter what you do,stand on 17 18 19 or 20 and the dealer always wins.The dealer shows a ten and you have 12 13 14 15 or 16 and you have lost and believe me I have followed the guide,the maths sound great but in reality it means nothing when you end up with nothing.

- Yeah thats something the casino do alot, using your money first before bonus, just had a bit of trouble myself with bwin with wagering of bonus chips not counting toward requirements.
Oh I agree wholeheartedly that if the dealer is showing a 10 the odds are against you winning because its true. If your playing BJ with 8 decks 128 of the cards are worth 10. Thats bad if the dealer has 10 showing but you have remember thats its good for you if dealer has 6 or less or you're doubling.
I have to disagree with your opinion that you've lost no matter what you do though. Sure most of the time you bust if you hit on 16 but sometimes you don't. f your playing smart and tight, statistically you should still lose some money. There are no absolutes is this, no surefire winning strategy, the guide is just a way to minimize the risk involved in any gambling.
I've played though over 30 casinos now. Mostly when I've strictly follow the guide and grind away with small or minimum wagers I either walk away with the bonus or a bit ahead. Most of the times where I've busted out have been the times when I 've lost patience, increased my bets, or went for the big win.
All up I've been very lucky and only lost about 1/3 of my deposits and won a couple of tournaments. Thats what I think it comes down to really... Luck. Just hang in there it'll get better.
