I was just playing on a site that has free play casino games and alot of them. All of them had great graphics and the usuall real online casino links were plentiful. so i played a little blackjack switch and the dealer proceded to hit hard seventeen twice within 15 mins and beat me both times . Bad programing or cheating? u be the judge. This was free play mind you.

Come back when you have a bigger sample size.

If you had say 1000 hands, we might be able to start looking.
But twice in 15 minutes would not prove or dis-prove anything.
Out of interest, which casino was this?

There is no reason whatsoever to cheat (in house's favor) on a free game. I would not attribute it to "bad programming" either - kinda hard to imagine a programming mistake, that would make a dealer hit his hand incorrectly SOMETIMES. What I think is much more likely here is that you simply discounted the dealer's hand (yes, twice).

There is a reason to cheat on a free game. But it is the player's favor. Some sites let a player win more than expected. When he puts money on the line, whole different result. LOL

What do you mean by this? Isn't the dealer supposed to hit until he gets to 17 (or soft 18, in most cases) all the time?
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Yes i understand there is no reason to cheat me out of nothing. I Figured that out with my 78 IQ lol. however i wonder if they got lazzy and run the same software for free play as well as real and its corrupt. Ill look in my history and try and find the address as i was just randomly clickling links off search engine when i came across it. Oh and i dont make mistakes playing bj very often. IT hit hard seventeen that im sure of. Oh and this site also offers a mini card counting computer you can stuff in your underwear or where ever for 1600 its called casey lol.

Not cheating. My opinion is, online casinos don't
use an RNG, they use a special algorithm that
sometimes deviates from the norm to such a
degree that it looks like cheating. I consistently
see things at online casinos that I never see in
real play. Over and over and over. What does
that tell you.
