I've been playing Spanish 21 on the demo version of Casino Verite where all 5's turn into 6's, so I can't hit a 16 expecting a 5 for a 21. I was playing with a $500 buy-in and my minimum bet would be $30 so if a suited triple 7's against a dealer 7 shows up, I don't know if I'll win $5,000 on this game, but at a real table I would. I'm racking up huge amounts of player error totals for playing Spanish 21 strategy on a BJ game. I really like that I win with a 5 card hand that doesn't bust, or I win on a 21 even when the dealer has a BJ but checks the card after I have played my hand already.
I started this session at around $14,500 and won to over $18K in 103 hands. I just invented this betting strategy I'm using just before I started playing today, and I won't share it. But I will show the results from the screenshots below. I finally had a lucky break, and this is what it looks like when that happens.

Trying to crop to the charts. Max size of around 800 x 600,




Resampling from HD to 800 x 450 on my PC just made it blurrier, so I'll upload the original HD

All 5's turn into 6's? So, essentially the shoe has no 5's and 2x the quantity of 6's?

Is this just a way to make the demo version un-usable?

LOL, it might be an interesting game variant, particularly for SP21.

I think the real help would be springing $100 or whatever to pay for the software, but if I can win the game without that problem, I'm making progress. I started off with a $1,000 bankroll and I haven't looked back after 13K+ hands. I didn't know that Basic Strategy for the (5->6) even existed. What would the charts look like?

Basic Strategy for SP21(5->6) doesn't exist, as far as I know, but some of us have the capabilities to generate it.

My post above originally asked if you wanted Sp21 (5->6) basic strategy but I amended it after I realized that bteh game you are playing may just be an artifact of your use of a demo copy of commercial software.

I can help you if you want help with strategy, but I'm assuming that 5->6 is just a designer artifact of the demo software to allow you to familiarize yourself with the CSV package without making it useful for analyzing BJ.

As I said above, removing all 5s from the shoe and replacing them with 6s would be an interesting variant of Sp21 (and perhaps BJ.) It may even be a game that hasn't already been invented by MrCasinoGames

The software company wants their money, and kewlJ recommended the software to me. Since I don't take card counting seriously enough to warrant a backoff, I don't play the game like a card counter would. If I paid for the software, that 5's to 6's glitch would disappear.

So I played some Video Poker on the Wiz's Site. I haven't played VP in so long, I really don't know best strategy anymore, but I'd keep a low pair and a high card and many times get 2 pair out of it. In the link below is some screenshots I posted in a thread because I just randomly decided to play.

I spent a couple hours playing Double Double Bonus VP on the Wiz's site. I got one 4 of a kind. Then the machine went cold and I quit with a loss of 500 credits.
