I think that there's too much riding on internet casinos reputations that they wouldn't risk cheating players. I think that some online casinos may have the ability to alter payout percentages on games but only in conjunction with the casino software providers and in a way where it makes sense. I don't think that there's really anything to worry about if you're playing at trusted and reputable online casino sites. You just need to know where to play. Playing at Microgaming casinos and Playtech casinos I think that you're pretty safe. If you're from the US I think that playing at casinos like Golden Casino, One Club, Rushmore Cherry Red Casino, etc... is probably a good idea.

A number of people have contacted me or my website about Playtech livedealer games. They report that playing basic strategy they are losing around 3% in live dealer games which use the Playtech software, instead of the true figure of about 0.6% which the game should produce according to various sites. They take advantage of casino promotions and think they have a fair chance to make money at -0.6% (they are often offered $100 to deposit $100 with 8 times play through for example) but little chance at -3%.

The interesting statistic from the people who contacted me was that the percentage of Blackjacks for the player overall was around 2.4%, almost exactly half the figure that it should be for 8 decks 4.7451% (32/416*128/415*2). What I think happens is that at the shuffle table the casino takes 16 of the aces and places them at the bottom. Then there is a single riffle in six sections followed by a cut, so that these 16 aces will not be in play in the new shoe. There will now be an average of 8 aces in the section that will be used in the new shoe, and not the average of 16 aces that would be expected for the (approximately) 208 cards that are used in an 8 deck game with the postilion inserted half way. I did a simulation for 8 decks with only 50% aces, and had a figure of -3.3% - no doubt you would be better than me at checking that!
