Anyone else see the irony here ?

Me either.

At first I thought the irony was that it was an online sportsbook but I see they have B&M books at Jack casino.

Always bet an even number of coins on these VBJ machines unless BJs pay even money, then it doesn't matter. You can watch the football game while you play VBJ, but do you really want that distraction?

maybe that someone took a picture and they are using that picture to promote their business when in reality they tell you to not have your phone out most of the time ... but i dont even believe what i just said because it is in my experience that you cant have them out at a table game because i usually have my phone out all the time and frequently take pictures

That is an IGT video blackjack game, I am pretty sure it pays even money.

Of all the pictures they could have taken, they show a LOSING hand for the Player


Anyways, I thought it was funny.

Lol. Maybe they have really strict "truth in advertising" laws in that state?

Unfortunately, I don't think so. At least not based on the correspondence I have had in the past with the staff at the state gaming commission.

Here's the gist of an actual conversation I had once with someone in the Attorney General's office regarding a promotion that violated state law:

Me: Hey, just following up on the complaint I filed several months ago. What is the outcome of your review?

Them: We're not allowed to discuss that.

Me: But I filed the complaint.

Them: Yep.

You would think so, but have you ever seen a mobile game ad? They always show the computer or whatever losing the game they're trying to download. They're trying to trick you psychologically into saying, "Pff... dumb computer, I can easily do that...I'll download the game and prove it!"

I mean, I don't work in advertising, but it seems like it's a current trend to advertise someone being an idiot in order to get you to buy/download something to show you're better.

Maybe idiots attract idiots and that is what they are going for.

I don't play VBJ very often. Which card was the dealer's hole card? Did the player stand on his 14 v a 5 or a T? If it was 14 v T, then I might buy into TigerWu's assessment.

It's been a while, but I believe that the first dealer card is face up, the second face down.
So that would be 5 up, T down.
May the cards fall in your favor.

What does the WINNING screen look like for this specific game? Maybe that screen doesn't look as good from an aesthetic point of view. Maybe they took a bunch of pictures of winning and losing games, and this one "looked the best," with the way the cards were laid out, and what the specific values were.
