I am livid. Did I get scammed? I played at Gun Lake Casino in Western Michigan.

I started with $100 dollars. Doubled twice, once with a ten against a 4 and another time with a 9 against a 3. Lost 8 in a row for $100. It took about 9 minutes.

Ouch, that sucks.

I once lost 5 straight hands with a 20 at the old President Casino on the Admiral at the St. Louis Riverfront. I left immediately after that. At the time I wondered if something fishy was going on too. No way to prove it and these situations do happen sometimes.

Happened just last night to me ... on a practice site at five dollars a hand.

I have had players win 10 hands in a row.... Either can happen. It is annoying but in a true BJ game anything is possible.

think thats bad, once the dealer got blackjack 3 hands in a row on me, each time when they were showing a picture, so there was no insurance offer delay.
It was pretty much, check hole card, take money
check hole card, take money
check hole card, take money

annoying part was on the 3rd one i was in box one, so as soon as i saw I had 11 I was getting my chips ready to double against her picture then before I knew it she grabbed my money im like ARGH!
Had 11 losses in a row on a blackjack machine 2 weeks ago.

but in saying that I was a blackjack dealer for several years and have lost count of the amount of times I have seen people go on huge winning streaks.... though you only hear people comment when they get the big losses :)

Probably not. Legitimate losses like this are not as uncommon as you may think.

I have lost/pushed 12 hands in a row about an year ago at the Hollywood Casino in Penn National, Grantville, PA. That was one of the worst casino experiences I will ever remember.

Awww, I miss the President. That was the first time I played Pai Gow. My wife and I played $5 Pai Gow for 8 hours and each lost $20. "You're going to have some fun! President Casino... Yeah!" (The old commercials)

approximately like flipping a coin and getting 8 heads in a row, and you kept betting on tails. In other words completely unexceptional if irritating. Especially if that coin is slightly biased for heads rather than tails. Livid? get over it. No one cheated you.
