    Wondering if those digital blackjack games with the buxom babes always telling you to remember your side bets are rigged in any way? I kinda like them, but am always wondering if the odds are the same as/similar to bj played at a table.

    The odds are the same as any table with the same rules.. 3/2 DAS etc... They may be a new shuffle every hand so not countable... but any video game with cards must follow same probabilities as if it had real cards. VP etc....

    The VP at Cosmo uses more than one deck of cards. I'd never seen that before. Those buxom babes are/were real dealers. I think they worked at the Wynn. My favorite is the brunette in the red top.

    I sometimes like these machines as well. Usually I do fairly well on them too. And I like how I can use my phone at the table!

    In Nevada is an electronic game resembles some,thing physical like dice or a deck of cards it must accurately represent them. Now whether the blackjack machine reshuffles after every deal I'm not so sure. But don't forget your side bet!:evillaugh

    Cosmo is the only place I've seen more than one deck. I even called the bartender over when I was dealt two queen of spades. Or maybe it was the video BJ you can play on the VP machines at the bar. Either way, it was two of the same card.

    Oh the game king vp machines with bj...that makes more sense!

    But yeah I can see those using more than one deck on bj. Those are the worse video bj games around. Bj pays even money on most

    In PA double when you like. The only thing I've been uncertain of is there was once documentation that said everyone played with their own deck. Otherwise for a cheap fix they're just fine. Apparently some places have three card poker versions as well.

    Oh, and while the "animations" have improved, once upon a time you could tell the dealer was going to bust because they started smiling. Or they had a great hand cause they got really serious.

    The particular game I played did not use animations- actual video of what someone here said were actual Wynn dealers.
