    online casinos

    Does anyone have experience with online casinos? I love playing blackjack but the nearest casino is about a 4 1/2 hour drive away and generally not worth the hassle for my two days off. I was thinking about playing here and there in online ones but they seem kinda sketchy. I'm not talking about having 10k by any means just $100-$200 here and there on $5 tables for something to do. Main question, reputable site? is it legal? how do deposits/receiving funds take, are they rigged?

    Well being the poker sites got shut down a few years ago it's probably going to be a sketchy site sadly.

    Watch the Twitch channels doing it and see what you think.

    Online gambling regulation in USA is pretty weak or rather non-existent in most states. Recent changes introduced regulation in New Jersey and Delaware, I know Nevada was also working on it, but I'm not sure what's the current situations. Usually, even the regulated sites can be sketchy because regulators don't do their job properly, but using any site that is not regulated is just asking for trouble.

    I've watched at few and I like the live dealer stuff. I've heard some bad things about accounts being emptied overnight by employees or something, however most I would ever have is $100-$200 in there so it wouldn't be that huge of a deal.

    I was thinking about online poker a while back. From what I remember, all the online sites are rigged. You wont make much money against AI. some of them have AI mixed in with real players. A lot of the hands are predetermined and not random.


    I also read that fulltilt or whoever were promising like $500 extra funds when you pay like $1000 or something but never actually had the money to cover it.

    It's rigged.

    I have two friends who setup bots and consistently won when Full Tilt was still around. There were tons of people doing it and making a ton of money. The sites also did it.

    All the sites now are in a grey area legally and you can easily lose all your money to them shutting down or just not paying out. Stay away.

    If you're gonna play, don't put 100-200 into it and don't play $5 tables. You will want to put small amounts of $10-20 in the account at any one time and play 0.5c-10cent tables AT THE MOST - especially with poker. Also, poker should be limit only. You will lose your money, all of it, so follow these rules.
