One of the reasons why people continue to believe the game is rigged is the lack of visual evidence. In a live game, we SEE the dealer and his actions. People WATCH the dealer and in a legal cardroom or casino, TRAINED personnel are focusing on the dealer’s every move. That’s how a live game’s integrity is protected.
With a computer, everything is hidden. We never see the deal and there are no observers, trained or otherwise. The validity of any RNG will always be questioned. That isn’t just a programming flaw, it’s a product of human nature.
There are ways to validate the RNG on a personal level, but anything the site does will always be suspected as self-serving. It is just unfortunate this site either doesn’t want players to evaluate the RNG’s validity or have decided eliminating such information saves programing dollars. I think it shortsighted but understandable since this is chip action. There is no cost to the player.
That fact too is a major contributor to the rigged conspiracy. Chip action on sites like this have no consequences for inept play. Lost all your chips? Wait twenty-four hours and get more. Bets that would force a reasonable player to fold in a money game just draws more action. There are just too many incentives to chase to the river when there is no cost.
Look at everyone’s favorite hand, pocket aces. There is an 85% probability of winning the hand at the pre flop stage. In a cash game you bet to eliminate the field. In chip action, heavy betting may well result in all nine players seeing the flop. Pocket aces still dominate, but the odds are now 50 - 55% when you face eight other players. It’s still the best hand but not as dominating as it was against a single opponent. Once the flop comes up, the odds can shift dramatically and that too can lead to the rigged game concept…
