How do you know the dealer won't bust as frequently? Random cards, with random number of players, with random number of hands, with random ways of playing, cause random events.

I'd say not as random. I don't see why the house edge would be higher. Are you assuming the cards start out unsorted?Quote:wizardofassDoes spinning the cards around face down on the table and shuffling them a couple times guarantee as much randomization as a number generator?

I often think that the mere act of dealing the cards, and having them returned from players in different sequences each time, is sufficient. One riffle should be plenty. Of course, I keep that thought to myself.Quote:wizardofassDoes spinning the cards around face down on the table and shuffling them a couple times guarantee as much randomization as a number generator?

In blackjack, I believe the shuffle would have to be "not very good" in some fairly specific ways to meaningfully affect the house edge.

The "wash" procedure - scrambling the cards face down on the table, with all cards spending some time on the felt - is a fairly good randomizer, if done correctly. Subsequent riffles intermix various parts of the (mostly) random deck.

As I understand, the "wash" is common only starting from a sorted deck order; either after a deck change, or at a casino that sorts & spreads the decks in play on a dead game. Subsequent shuffles start from a discard sweep + slug order.

One time last century a real dealer started off the shoe at a full table I was at and won 5 Black Jacks in a row. What's that 1/20.7 ^ 5? 1 in 3.8 million?

For a shuffle, random means that every card in the source deck has an equal chance of being in every position in the shuffled deck.

Most hand shuffles aren't quite there, but are unpredictable enough to maintain game integrity.

I probably need to sit on a warm rock for a while, meditating on the relation between random and unpredictable. (I do not know that they are equivalent.)

I believe what you're thinking of was a carousel shuffler with a non-prime number of platforms. I believe the suggestion was to disable enough platforms in software so that a prime number of platforms would be in use.

This is done, as far as I know.

This is not the same style shuffler as the MD2, MD3, and MDX. These are 'elevator' rather than 'carousel', and use a different shuffling method.

i going to go with your definition...

lets say we already know of a way to generate every single permutation of a shuffle...

well that fulfils your "every card in every postion" definition

cool

well since we know thats a guaranty then we need to assume that its possible to somewhat "predict" a single shuffle ... after all a broken clock is right twice a day we can get lucky so to say...

well we dont want the person to get lucky on their own terms we want them to get lucky at a random time

we need the shuffle to be unpredictable

Very good point, I didn't think about that. Obviously, this is why shuffle tracking is a thing. I don't know enough about what it takes to have a random shuffle to really give any insight.

Without getting into in-shuffles and out-shuffles, that's going to tend to keep the cards at the top of the deck near the top of the deck, and the cards near the bottom towards the bottom.

That running strip cut does something.

Without particularly trying, this is what can happen with "just two riffles".

I put two jokers on the top, riffled twice, and spread the deck.

Then I riffled twice, and spread the deck.

Then again...

I'm neither good at controlling a shuffle, nor particularly trying.

That extra nonsense helps demonstrate that the dealer isn't controlling the shuffle and isn't grossly incompetent at shuffling. Keep your shorts on and let the cards get mixed up.

This is why we have two decks of cards at our home game. Shuffle after you deal then pass the cards to the the next dealer (two to your left), all while the person to your left deals the next hand. Can have a third person cut if someone is paranoid.

Shuffling cards manually could add some degree of randomness but is unlikely to be on the level of a sufficiently-programmed RNG used in electronic casino games. Manual shuffling creates randomness but the degree of randomness might not be as great as that provided by an RNG employed in the electronic gaming. Nevertheless, the main factors that influence the house edge of casino games are apart from the shuffle, including game rules and player strategy. To minimize these risks, casinos implement various measures in ensuring fairness to both player and themselves. In this case, rather than solely contemplating on the shuffle quality to have an upper hand, a player ought to familiarize with the rules ad policies that govern betting
