Why none of these well known technicians are willing to take this to the press for the sake of protecting the people from getting robbed is beyond me.
One just doesn't take something to the press. I can tell you that the press is not very interested in the shady underside of Internet gambling. It needs to be a sensational story like Absolute Poker/Ultimate Bet before they will take notice. You have just as much right to take this to the press as I do.
I emailed 3 UK newspapers with a brief summary and a link to this site that itemized the issues. I got the same response as I did after emailing and snail mailing several alleged internet regulatory bodies, asking for the specific rules on internet video poker.
Not even a response that any of them even received any of my mailings.
I was thinking that someone like yourself who is well respected and well known would have a better chance of finding a concerned righteous ear.
I'm not sure Mike would have any better luck.
I think LVRJ might be interested in this, as would congress.
Bull. Online casinos offer 100% RTP or higher, all of the time.
It's very disturbing.
Right, and not only that, but we're also talking about a game with a House Edge of 4.00% being presented as an Even Money game. There are certainly on-line casinos (and many, many land casinos) that offer games with a House Edge of 4.00% or lower that are not doomed to commercial failure.
Perhaps Phill Brear is not aware of these obscure games such as Baccarat, Craps, Single-Zero Roulette, Video Poker, Blackjack and others. Not many are aware of these games, so I can understand his lack of knowledge of them.
The game cannot be a representation of a pack of cards, how could it pay 12x etc.
His ignorance of the mathematics of gambling is profound. He also said:
The error was in the production and presentation of a discrepancy in the paytables.
And this sentence, explaining the error, is jibberish.
So if FoxNews calls, you'll hang up the phone?
I'd be happy to talk to them. I've been on Fox News before, talking about baby names.
Tremendous work! Thank you so much for this effort. In particular, thank you for this sentence:Quote: Caruso
My contribution to the collective disquiet
"To question how graded payouts can be set when 'all cards have equal probability' is to completely misunderstand just about everything it's possible to misunderstand."
The site is carried by Google News so maybe it will gain some traction.
