Video Blackjack Odds Vs Table Blackjack

Dear Mark: Does electronic blackjack have the same odds as the table blackjack? It seems to me that electronic blackjack could be programmed to the casino's advantage more than the table blackjack. Ming W.

It is a Nevada law (and I'm sure most states follow suit) that video representations of cards follow the same odds as those in a real game with a human dealer, and that they be completely random.

What you need to concern yourself with is legally "altered" rules. For instance, in video blackjack, it's tough to find a machine that pays you the true value of a blackjack (3 for 2). Most video blackjack machines pay only even money on natural 21's. The loss of that bonus is going to cost you an additional 2.3 percent.

So, Ming, be assured that even though the cards are dealt randomly, you are giving away a considerable amount percentage-wise on a blackjack machine, so naturally, the odds there wouldn't necessarily be the same as they'd be in table blackjack.
