Are you going to stop with the casino is cheating you nonsense ?

Are you ever actually coming to Vegas to start your AP career, or will there always be an excuse that comes up?

There is nothing wrong with deciding against it, but all this on again, off again gets tiresome.

Yes Axel, the plan is first week of May. I have a lot of things that have gotten in the way or that are coming up which has not allowed me to move out sooner. Jury duty is one of them. Im using the time now to put in lots of hours in PA with great rules and building a bankroll as big as i can. Im also taking the time to fix up my car for the road trip.

Meanwhile im also trying to figure out how im gonna rent anywhere decent without credit and job verification. I've been actively searching and calling up many apartments in the decent areas such as Southwest, Summerlin, and Henderson. Most of them say I cant pay up front. Although there is one corporate apartment that goes by the name 'Ovation' with many nice properties that says i can pay 3 months up front. Im not sure if they'll approve me though because i have never had a credit card and or much credit history. The only recurring monthly expense i have is cell phone. I paid for my car up front in cash as well as car insurance always in full. Gym membership is also my only other monthly expense lol.

When I moved to Henderson without a job, I called first. Just ask if you can prove you got the funds in your account but don't have a job. Once we were about to start a background check or somewhere near that point in the process, we were laughed at for trying to get a 2 bed apartment without a job (they forgot we could prove we had the funds we had already mentioned) I remember the manager saying "You want a 2 bedroom!? You barely qualify for a one bedroom!" (Ouch that hurt my wife's feelings for some reason, might have to do with our old bank telling us to bank elsewhere previously but that's another story) Or something to that effect. Then I said/reminded him how much we had in the bank. He was humbled from that point on and wanted our business.

So I think you might have to 'settle' for a non luxury apartment like I did if you really want one. PM me if you want some details.

Fresh of our (wife &I) move to Vegas in 2011, we opened a savings acct at Nevada State Bank. We were living at Holiday Royale on paradise (loved it but it's tiny). Month or two later we got a call from the bank and they tell us they don't accept our address as a residential address because it's a business address and we could no longer bank there. We called a big bank and described the situation and they didn't want us either. After being rejected again, my wife & I felt awful. Awful like we're a couple of traveling scared hobos trying to make it in this city. Make it, we did sorta, but can't share about that for personal reasons(and really OT). Anyhow we found that one of the other big banks would take us so we Had to go with them. Still with them too.

Dear ZenKing, i too played at sands and won/lost money at there blackjack games 6/8deckers , back counting can prove positive but not worth the wait and like Aslan says the seats fill up fast 1/2 in the 8 deck of a running count of 20!

anywho, i cant say if they are cheating or not but take it from someone who runs sims alot on many different blackjack software, i have seen it all

i don't trust my own shuffle so i use software dating back from the 80s, played 6 deckers with unbalance systems and im still shocked i was able to win 4200$ in 3 shoes

i was also amazed how i lost 70 max bets on masque blackjack windows version, (same rules as sands pa)

playing CVBJ and other off brand blackjack on DOS operating system yields BIG different results, rarely i encounter a shoe to swallow 10-20 max bets on CVBJ
however it happens alot more on DOS software bj games, however the same has been established im always at my EV and magnetic field of 42/8/50 when all
added together, it can be done losing max bets up to 70 but its really hard to lose 100+ max bets im supprised you didnt get backed off after your 100-200hr in playing bj

and i know what you mean about KJ, Collin, FLash all rockin how they extracted funds from the casino kissed goodbye to there break even bets 10-15 years ago
and gambling w/ the casino money ever and i love how they complain how they lost x amounts of bets last weekend, please, , sh!t man id gladly give up 1k$-2k$-4k$-8k$ for exchange for 16 grand, saying 8k isn't alot but when your down suppose 5k$ it must hurt especially your first session, and wondering when the pitbull boss will tap your shoulder and say alright no more action for u!

bottom line, i wouldn't accuse them of cheating until you lost your 100 max bets or your 25k$ LOL by then its too late

Goodluck to ya

and wheoever said try atlantic city those games are god awful, hit 17 and no surrender? whats the ev there? 2.50 $ an hr vs RoR? no ty lmao

Hey squid, sands is not much of a problem for me anymore, i turned the tide on them and am up close to 5 figures now overall there. The only place i absolutely cannot win at has been Harrahs in Chester, thats the casino ive accused of cheating. They are the only casino i have a net loss in; well i have a small loss at mohegan sun in the poconos but i only played one total session there, so that doesnt really count. I guess i cant win everywhere and there's bound to be losses that clump at certain casinos over time. The thing that gets me is that im down close to 3 SD there ever since they changed to 6 decks, it's unbelievable, literally everything that could go wrong there has gone wrong. I think next time i go there, ill play the $50 high limit room games and see if i can change the tide there, maybe that's exactly what i need.

Of course my brain is telling me it's just variance, but my heart screams cheating. I dont think a big corporate chain would cheat, but let's not forget they're called the "Evil Empire" for a reason.

I'm confused... in what way do you think this casino could be cheating? By adding more 5's and removing some A's from the shoes? I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt that you don't believe in the black magic of the shuffle machines.

You realize these casinos have to answer to their respective Gaming Commissions and they wouldn't risk a multi-million dollar venture to stack a deck to gain a small edge on an already small edge game. Also don't they literally open the tables with the decks face up? Just because you've lost at a certain casino doesn't mean they're cheating. Your tone is quite egocentric, try and not be results oriented and emotionally attached to your bankroll and you'll realize how much "mental game" you still need practice on.

No, Harrahs does not open the tables with the decks face up. Yes my accusation has been that the 6 decks are altered decks. But like i said before my brain wants to believe a billion dollar company wouldnt risk this because they already have the edge and can just take counter measures against true threatsm but my heart and ego want to believe im getting cheated just by looking at how great this game has been and i have not won ONE SINGLE session sinve they switched to 6 decks. Because of the coincidence as well of me losing right when they switched to 6 decks raises more red flags for me.
