Default Is online poker really rigged? Check it out

Just check this screenshot which was taken by my friend while playing a tourney on SportingBet

There are many ways a site could intelligently rig their games.... this is not one of them.

Or someone changed the image of the jack of hearts on their computer to show jack spades. Not that hard.

Everything would be ok and I'd agree with you guys, but my friend seems to be very serious about it - he has just e-mailed support about this issue. I'll let you informed anyway.

Utter stupidity doesn't equal rigged games. (In the off chance this actually happened.)

Glitches do happen on some sites...perhaps moreso after an upgrade.

Remember the hand and subsequent chat that Lorinda posted a while ago where one of the opponents had 4 hole-cards (it was a hold-em hand...she only had 2 cards...and strangely she got the impression that this was probably a disadvantage)???


Stupid glitches (if this one really DID happen) are hardly evidence that online is rigged though. It means that the program might be messed up though but that doesn't have much to do with the 'randomness' of the cards.


FWIW - the chances of getting dealt to 5h on the same hand would be MUCH higher in a live room.
Yeah, they check the deck before they start...but oversights and bad-decks/mis-prints happen.

You know what! Online poker is rigged! Check out this hand!!
Now, to the untrained eye nothing looks supsicious about this hand, but if you look closely the hand number is 2203507, but on the bottom left, in the chat box, it says the next hand is 8675309..Obviously that cant be! It must be rigged!!

Edit: Oh wow, I just realized that 2203507 was the tournament number, not the hand number...Never mind, it isnt rigged

I once got dealt two Kings of hearts in a foxwoods limit holdem event, then they proceeded to find another King on the floor below the dealer.
Do i speak up? or hope to hit one of the remaining 3 kings!?! haha
