- You suspicion is wrong. Only a few very small (and out of business) online casinos cheat in anyway. Doing a stupid trick like having customer win in the start is suicide for them if caught due to non-random behaviour. Besides they have no reason to cheat, the casino will win eventually! I have 100% confidence is all the big casino providers: Microgaming, Cryptologic, RTG, Rival, Playtech, IGT NetEnt, 3Dice, Galewind Software ... I have played 50+ days (playtime) at these casinos years ago, when you got free bonuses for playing BJ with optimal strategy. The result, you played up almost even(+/-) in BJ and then you kept the bonus which was from 100$ to 500$ typical. Good days.Jan 17, 2013
- "How to Cheat at Everything" by Simon Lovell is my favorite con encyclopedia, however, for a quick and thorough treatment of cheating period, the Modern Con Artist series by Todd Robbins . Book and DVD series. There are older books that give more in-depth treatment of the long con (one form of which was the plot for the movie "The Sting") and carnival scams.who stars in the video series called "ScamSchool" (on youtube, and rev3 for ipod/iTunes) is an awesome resource for bar tricks, and now and then some serious scamming, but always good for free beer. The British version of "The Real Hustle" which can sometimes be acquired on Buccaneer Harbor gives a gloss version of utterly illegal scams, but features card artist Paul Wilson, a world-class card manipulator - if I remember right the Las Vegas season did do blackjack. And then, there is the ultimate curmudgeon card God: Ricky Jay...a man who has a deadly combination of esoteric mental capacity, and an iron-willed almost neurotic fastidiousness for exacting perfection from his art(s), which are many.
As I'm sure other posters have pointed out, security at casinos is state of the art - cheating in Nevada at a casino is a felony offense with a steep sentence. Using only your mind is legal but quite frowned upon. Expect to be invited to leave and not return, from the whole chain, not just the one casino location. And expect to be recognized for the rest of your life in all casinos once 'caught'. While none of these resources are exactly what he asked for, he will find plenty more there to appease his urge to get one over. However Dear Student should remember two things: first, character is what you won't do, and second, if you can't spot the mark, it's you.Jan 17, 2013
