Are Live Dealer Casino Games Rigged?

A lot of people seems to be thinking that live dealer casino games are somehow rigged so I thought I would make this post and clear out some common misconceptions.

First of all it is important to know that all live dealer casinos have the house edge working to their advantage no matter what game you are playing. This means that they don’t have to rig any games, they will end up with a profit in the long run anyway. It would make no sense at all for a licensed live online casino to start rigging their games in order to win your money at a faster pace because chances are big that you will be losing the money to them anyway.

There are always rumours about fixed slot machines or other types of casino games but let’s take a closer look at the situation for online live dealer games.

Live Dealer Casinos Are Not Rigged

I can give you my personal guarantee that none of the live dealer casinos listed on this site are using unfair methods to win your money. All of these casinos are licensed and regulated in the UK which should make you feel a lot safer than when you are playing at a Random Number Generator casino that is not regulated or licensed anywhere.

Another thing that should make you feel certain that the live dealer casinos are not rigged is the fact that all of the dealers are shuffling the cards right infront of you at the end of each shoe. If they were doing something fishy with the cards you would be able to spot this instantly. This is true for both live dealer blackjack and live online baccarat.

There Are No Magnets Under the Roulette Tables

I can’t tell you how many times I have seen people in the chatting at various live online casinos claiming that there are magnets under the roulette tables which enables the casino to control the outcome of each spin. Now if you think this is true I ask you to sit back and give this some real thought. The game of roulette has a house edge of over 5% which is signficantly higher than the blackjack or baccarat tables. With a house edge that big why should they need to rig the tables with magnets risking their entire business and reputation to control and outcome that is inevidable anyway? Once again it just doesn’t make sense for the live dealer casinos to rig the roulette games or any other game for that matter. They have the house edge working in their favor and that is all they need.

Could Live Dealer Casino games Possibly Be Rigged?

Well obviously if someone really wanted to rig the games at a live online casino they would be able to figure out some way to do it. They could start shuffling the decks outside of the screen at the baccarat and blackjack tables and I suppose they could rig the dice at the Sic-Bo tables and arrange the roulette table to produce constant losers.  In theory it could happen, sure. But at the risk of sounding like a broken record I have to say it again. The live dealer casinos are NOT rigged.

If you are still not sure if the live dealer casino games are rigged or not I would suggest that you stay away from them but it would be a shame to miss out on something that is so much fun.
