Lets say I create a digital blackjack game. I dont want to shuffle the deck ever because that takes time and costs money.

Lets say i have a probability table that looks like this

Dealer's Up Card Dealer Odds of Busting Player Advantage Percentage
2 35.30% 9.8%
3 37.56% 13.4%
4 40.28% 18.0%
5 42.89% 23.2%
6 42.08% 23.9%
7 25.99% 14.3%
8 23.86% 5.4%
9 23.34% -4.3%
10 21.43% -16.9%
J 21.43% -16.9%
Q 21.43% -16.9%
K 21.43% -16.9%
A 11.65% -16.0%

When the game starts, I will RANDOMLY deal out the first 3, or 4 cards depending on the variant.

The next part is where the probability table comes in ... i will generate the next cards that will come out based on a probability table

is this legal?

I would guess that would not be approved. The probabilities need to be the same as if you were using a shuffled deck to be legal in most jurisdictions. I also do not understand the premise that shuffling an electronic deck takes much time or costs money. I would assume most shuffles can be completed in less than a tenth of a second.
At my age, a "Life In Prison" sentence is not much of a deterrent.

You'd think card counters would notice the dealer gets more ten cards when the count is positive.

the shuffling thing was supposed to be funny i know it doesnt take much and i know that the algorithm that is actually fair and is most likely used is so easy to implement that i should be doing that but im a human and need to complicate things

you wouldnt be able to tell me how the hands in "wasioux" were generated would you?.... i know the algorithm description from the patent but i feel as if there is alot more to it then picking the "winning hand" and then distributing the cards at a random distance... or please tell me that i have no clue what im talking about
