I contend this game maker (i.e.,Encore) has programmed the game of Black Jack - therefore deceiving potential buyers into thinking their buying a legitimate game of BJ. I've played this game for hours upon hours and, there's NO doubt whatsoever the powers that be (computer programmers) have corrupted this game. IMO Encore should be forthright and label their games IE these games have been programmed (wishful thinking I suppose). I despise the deception of Encore -- I am determined to inform others about this deceitful game maker of Black Jack (Encore). Here are a few of the issues I have with Encores version of BJ. BTW I got this game as a gift sometime ago so I can't get a refund.


1. Dealer hits 21, 9 times out of 10 when said player has 20 (dealer gets 21 whenever player has 21 way to often)!
2. Dealer push hands are unbelievable (repeatedly every playing session)
3. Dealer hits BJ every time player raises their bet.
4. Dealer gets 20 practically 75-80 % of the time.

So, then, you have no proof of anything? Publishing a libelous claim is an interesting tactic in that case...

Can I see your data to substantiate these accusations?
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I don't need to prove anything - I'm more interested in warning folks about this game make (Encore). Are you the type that allows cheating in your world?

Cheating, lying, foolishness...the world would be better off with less of all of these things.

You might want to go back to your video gaming forum until you have some proof to back up your claims. Something like thousands of hands of data showing how many times the dealer got 20 or 21.

I'm pretty sure Encore would have no incentive to put out a cheating video game under their hugely successful Hoyle line of games just to take your fake chips.

I'm not really sure why anybody would rig entertainment gambling software to favor the computer, unless it's to discourage gambling. If anything, you rig it in favor of the player because winning is more fun than constantly losing. Also gives the side-effect of driving more business to real gambling, by making the player think they're just that good.

I guess we both live in the same world - I just dislike cheaters with a stronger passion than you do.....especially those who lie about it and claim otherwise. How ironic that you wanted some proof about my insinuations - do you actually think those computer programmers would be honest? IMO it's purely a game of chance and the advantage ALWAYS goes to the house - in this case its the computer who wins and the player has no say about it.

Well you can start by proving the claim that the dealer is a "cheater" by gathering data that supports your claim. Play at least 10,000 hands and record the number of dealer 21's, blackjack's, etc vs player data. Then you can run the math and see how off the numbers are, which would give you a rightful claim.

There's nothing to warn against if you just played for a few hours each night and lost. That proves nothing.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.
