Hey guys & gals.

I started playing online at william hill the other day with a small amount and....HMMM, out of all the blackjack games I'm playing over various platforms, and WH free play, that's the only time I have lost consistently. Lol. But anyway, my question is, is it better to play the live games online? I only just discovered the option at WH. Is it possible to count cards in this scenario (just started Hi Lo)?

Think in the future I'm gonna stick to real casino's though.

:P

I highly recommend not gambling online at all. Although, I do trust the Wizard's approval of at least one online casino, which to my knowledge, has no live dealers. I looked into this before. They use shallow penetration and have strict rules prohibiting card counting. The fact that they have made this game countable to a small degree, and vulnerable to a computer, and don't just use an auto-shuffler suggest to me they want you to think they are afraid of counters in order to attract them. It felt like a scam.

Yeah I'm kinda sceptical now after trying out the online games. Maybe I'm just having a bad streak though, suspicious that it happens when I try online with some real money. On one of the android live games with fake money I have turned 3k to 50k, haha, if only.

The only only live game I trust is bac. It's
a close to 1/1 payout, you can watch the
shuffle, watch the hands and see the players
being paid. Because of the no odds payout
and low max bets, the casino can't really be
hurt. Also, the hands are dealt so fast, 3 a
min usually, you would have to really know
what you were doing to be a system player.

If your goal is to count cards, do not play online. Period. Practically every online casino shuffles between hands, essentially using a CSM.

If you just want to play some blackjack, I heartily recommend Bovada - the single-deck blackjack is at least (with points) very very close to even - but watch the deposit and payout fees.

I'm happy that Bovada is fair. Both in the casino and in poker, I've had truly absurd streaks both up and down, and I can't imagine what they're up to if they're not being honest.
The trick to poker is learning not to beat yourself up for your mistakes too much, and certainly not too little, but just the right amount.

Hi, yes I am astounded that when I use play money at an online Casino I don't seem to be able to loose.
As soon as I start playing with real money, whamo they clean me out.
