This game is insidious. Two generations of video poker have been learned, taught, and played based on a single deck and your discards being unavailable. Intelligent fans know to check the paytable. now they'll find a machine that pays 9-6 and instead of playing a 99.+%game, they are playing one that pays like a 7-5 game.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

If they tell you how they deal the game, then deal as announced, it probably isn't cheating.

They probably don't say either way. However, I think it should be disclosed if they are not playing by the conventional rules.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I can agree with that, too.
Saying nothing and offering a novel game under the guises of a traditional game would seem disreputable.
May the cards fall in your favor.

If the side chatter gets significant, I'm sure someone can effect a fork of the thread.

Blackjack-11 is bizarre.

No dealer up-card, no doubling, no splitting.
One card to each position, dealer hits to 7, Aces are 1 or 11, player natural 11 pays 3:2.
May the cards fall in your favor.

It does say that discarded cards are shuffled back into the deck.

How many people are going to click on the rules for a game they think they know. If Vlad hadn't pointed out how to find the rules, would you have looked?

the reason they keep talking about the rules is because legally most places - including in "standards" - that the rules must state exactly how the game works

if they dont it is considered to be "unfair"
