Legendary promo idiot. Stay on soft 17 and double any first two cards is standard normal rule.who playing on different rules is stupid. Anyway,kind of BJ from american casinos,mean one face up and one face down card for dealer is stupid also. Try to play a normal BJ. In Europe somewhere,for example

Luck is a Beautiful Thing! But when anyone has to continually Depend on it, They will find themselves in a terrible situation. There is only "ONE" game Within' Any Casino That Any Professional Can Hold And Maintain a 10% Edge Over, AND THAT IS THE GAME OF "BACCARAT" ...

Gun4Life (1 year ago)
The only way you can win is by counting cards and adjusting your bets ... nearly all the big casinos now have card shufflers to stop counting going on and if you get caught counting they back you off the table ... this video is fiction ... dnt believe a word this douche is saying he said he played 25k three ways biggest load of bullshit ever.
mike ryan (1 year ago)
casino pay 6 to 5 Not 3/2 he didn't have 4m, he didn't negotiate payout, number of decks or surrendering bets SOUNDS LIKE A CNN FAKE NEWS
spazvapes (10 months ago)
uhh there's a lot of casinos that pay 3/2. and usually even a casino that has 6/5 tables usually has 3/2 tables but the stakes are usually close to double the 6/5 table. At least every casino I've ever been to. But I only go to Vegas, and some indian casinos in so cal

Lols distract the dealers? Or beat the dealers? Dealers have nothing to do with anyone's hand and all we do is flip cards. You can try to distract the dealers all you want, but nothing much is going to happen lol. Unless they're a shitty ass dealer lol.

*This >>>> **https://plus.google.com/106920177424477812943/posts/N2zj3XbF2PX** Casino is another newly casino for me and I came across recently, while I was browsing the net and looking for some freebies, so that way I saw a banner with this casino with 10 euros free chip. The free bonus could be claimed but while you open account you had to insert the code given so the bonus was added automatically and yes indeed I got the bonus right away.*
Bobby Vo (1 year ago)
I don't believe this story, but dealers do make mistakes. They sometimes flip their hole card, deal more or less hands than they should. Take a hit when they aren't supposed to or do the opposite action of what the player wants for a hand. It happens.
carlo fraiia (1 year ago)
There is no way a casino will give up its advantages to allow somebody to play!!!! If he did win was most likely banned from returning. Casinos are just legalised criminals
mike Abbouchi (1 year ago)
Man your face don't look like gambler. You look more an actor lol Those Chicas around look hot BTW. And those rule most of casino use them so I don't know how you are saying you set up your rule... HOUSE always WIIIIIIN. FUCK THAT

ILvonen Viktor (1 year ago)
He said he distract the dealer to get some sort of advantage.... how exactly do you distract the dealer!? I mean the dealer only shuffle and deal the cards out. A Dealer doesn't affect the game?
BananaBread (1 year ago)
By being lucky and knowing basic blackjack rules. Nothing more to it. House wins in the long run, always
MclevinHD (1 year ago)
The dealer wants the player to win in order to get bigger tips...Plus there are house rules the dealer must follow such as drawing to 16
Isabella J. Monroe (1 year ago)
sounds like someone did somebody a favor. they brought in somebody that knows the game better than them so they can steal money out of the casino for them. basically they move the money out of the casino for somebody
