Are Online Casinos Fair? Or do they Cheat You?

I’m sure it already happened to you that you were thinking “this casino is definitively cheating me”, “their software is rigged” or “this is impossible to happen”. It happened to me as well. There are many things that are unlikely, like seeing “red” seven times in a row in Roulette, or losing eight hands in a row in Black Jack.


But does this mean that casinos are unfair? No, absolutely not. The more you play, the more often you’ll experience such unlikely events. For example in Roulette, seeing the same color seven times in a row happens quite often. It means that it is only necessary that the same color shows up again during the next 6 wheel spins. And this is calculated (18/37)^6, which gives us 1.3%. So this happens about every 75th time we are looking at a series of 6 spins.


And you shouldn’t put “fairness” on a level with “not losing money”. The large online casinos are fair, they adhere to their stated rules of the games. But as you know, casino games are games of luck, and the house always has an edge. So this means that in the long run, players will lose money (otherwise the casinos would be already broke). And there is no need for casinos to cheat you; the rules are set in a way that they will win in the long run.


So this means that while the games are fair, most players will lose money while playing online. There are two things you can do about that:

  • Stick to the strategies that I’ve outlined in my eBook. Especially, play attention to the bankroll management. Play only with small fractions of your capital, so that you can have fun for a very long time
  • Use welcome bonus offers from casinos, which means that you should hunt around for the best bonuses and play at several places. I can recommend you these three great offers


Begado – get $50 free plus a $9,999 bonus

Grand Parker – get $20 free plus a $8,000 bonus

Jackpot City – get $1,600 or €1,600 bonus (not valid for players certain countries)

Good luck!
