I have been programming and designing Online Casinos for over 6 years and I can honestly tell you that I have seen it all. I can’t really speak for the companies that I never worked for but I still have more than enough inside information on 99% of all casinos online(I guess having a lot of friends in the same professional field does pay off at times).
Anything you could possibly imagine is being done with Online Casinos. From simple things like online slots having an extremely low payout percentage to the most complex of “intelligent chance altering”, it is all being used right under your nose and most people have no clue. Most people trust the Casino and just tell themselves that they have a “bad streak”, blame themselves or blame it on god not liking them for all I know.
The most common scam is the low payout percentage. It is used in virtually every game/program. All this does is alter the number of times the player(you) gets paid. There is a minimum legal percentage of payouts for slots that needs to be followed by all casinos, playing strategies of online casinos but there is almost no way that you could prove that they’re skimming on the payouts. In order for you to prove that a casino is not paying out the minimum percentage, you would have to track thousands of spins, all of your wins and losses, meticulously document everything and prove that you actually did all of this.
Aside from that, you would have to literally spend tens of thousands of dollars just to get a glimpse of the whole system because the higher your number of total spins, the more accurate your end result will be(percentage) and you would need at least 10,000 spins to have any accuracy. It of course needs to be in real-money mode since you can’t really do it in play-money because the odds in that mode are a lot different(play-money mode actually has a player advantage to reel you in).
The more complex programs like the “intelligent chance” are virtually impossible to prove(short of having the system’s blueprint). That’s right, there is nothing that you would be able to do to detect it, let alone prove it. Creepy ain’t it?
I could write a whole book about this subject(that would be a treat, putting 90% of Online Casinos out of business with one book, makes you almost feel bad for them). Like I said before, there is nothing you can imagine that the Online Casinos haven’t cooked up before you. This is the reality, the sooner you come to accept it, the better you are. There is nothing you can do to find out which Online Casinos are good and which ones are, well, monsters… except be at the right place at the right time, this is the place and now is the time.
