Breaking the online gambling myths

Most people who are well read in casino online gambling know that quite a few of the common myths gamblers have are mistaken.

As much as people would like to believe slot machines are not fixed nor are they succumbed to cycles because they operate on a Random Number Generator – even when playing in online gambling.

Those streaks you see are what mathematicians call "fluctuations in probability" or, as we normal people say, good or bad luck. With every spin of the reels in online gambling the chance of this or that result happening is exactly the same as it was on the last spin of the reels.

But slot players aren't the only ones who labor under misconceptions in the online gambling world, it’s also the table top gamers. The misconceptions and money-losing ideas are still all there.

One upset gamer, also found by those involved in online gambling, sent an e-mail that he had played a blackjack game in Las Vegas.

He wrote: “Mr. Scoblete, you had better rethink your analysis of the Las Vegas blackjack games. I played that 6-deck game that you said was the best in the city and I lost my entire buy in. How could that game be the best when I lost so much so fast?”

A blackjack game or an online gambling blackjack game is judged on the basis of rules of the particular casino and based on the penetration the casino gives.

With online gambling penetration, shows how deeply or how shallow the dealer goes into the deck or shoe before he shuffles. Deep penetration on the other hand is usually considered good, shallow penetration is usually considered bad.

This blackjack game that was not online gambling was based on its penetration would be good for a card counter to play but it is not good for a basic strategy player to play.

Games that are good for card counters are also good for online gambling casinos because online gambling casinos deal many more hands out and these hands are overwhelmingly dealt out to players who do not have an edge over the casino. This only means big wins for the online gambling casinos and big time losses for the players.

When actively involved in online gambling you’ll want to look for games with poor penetration but good rules.

Another common myth in online gambling is that when you are playing blackjack, you must always assume the dealer has a 10-valued card in the hole. This especially goes for those who love online gambling. So if a dealer is showing a 10, you need to assume he has a 20 and make your hitting and standing decisions accordingly. Well, not exactly. There are sixteen 10-valued cards and 36 non-10s in a deck of 52 cards. It is much more likely that the dealer has a non-10 in the hole than a 10, especially I f his upcard is also a 10.

Basic online gambling strategy decisions are critical.
