Can I play half bets when I'm feeling low?
Can I double my bet when I'm feeling high?
No? Sounds like a harsh flat betting.

Flat betting $5, I once cashed out $200 in under an hour at the El Cortez. Two other players at the table, one of them a drunken career Marine who commented loudly after every hand I won. When I got a BJ on the first hand after I cut, he wanted to start betting on my hands. Between my lucky streak and his loud mouth, we had two pit guys watching like hawks. It was a great run.

I have no idea. My most memorable blackjack shoe consisted of getting blackjack 4 times in a row amongst other things.

I downloaded a Spanish 21 app onto my tablet. The stats section has some glitch, but it says I'm down 49 hands in 463 hands.
172 Wins, 221 losses, 42 pushes, and the rest of the stats reset when I closed the tablet and plugged in the charger and played some more later.
There's ads every few minutes, but if I click on my balance I can get another 5K points just for watching an ad right away. So I'm seeing offers to download slot games I might see in a casino, and I did that (Like Monopoly, and Fortune 88).
I lose 2 points every hand to pay for a progressive jackpot on Aces, which is around 5K points.

One night when I was winning every hand on a single deck BJ, no matter what they did, shuffle, change dealers, change decks, I ended up ahead over $60K and I was pretty much flat betting about $800. per hand, it just didn't occur to me to bet more I was having such a good time.

But then I've also gone to the BJ table in between grand Bacc. shuffles with about eighty bucks and pressed it repeatedly because I didn't care and walked back to the Baccarat six K ahead, and that definitely was not flat betting. My cousin keeps reminding me about that time: "I've seen you press eighty dollars to six thousand."

Over all, flat betting is a sure way to lose unless you're on a monstrously lucky run. Flat betting is also very boring, Unless you are on one of those monster runs.

I suppose the only potential plus to flat betting is that if you do get on a monster run, and are winning most every hand, when the run stops as long as you do stop, you're only going to lose a few units versus if you're pressing heavily and your run turns savagely against you, you might give back quite a lot with those pressed bets before you stop. That's probably why I was able to leave with all of that over $60K, betting just around eight hunny a hand when I started losing it was quickly apparent, "Hey did I actually just lose a hand? Oh, another hand? Hmm, I better stop." and all I gave back was a few units from the highest point.
I tell you itís wonderful to be here, man. I donít give a damn who wins or loses. Itís just wonderful to be here with you people.

up over 75 units in one night flat betting on a live game. Sounds legit.

I believe everything except the part about you giving back a few units
