    Previously the dealer shuffled the cards every betting round (local rivals Playtech use a shuffler).

    Wonder if they'll stick with the manual shuffle on the BJ tables?


    nice sparkles by the way

    I also noticed Shufflemaster on one of the VIP Blackjack tables. I hope they are not going to introduce these machines on all tables. This would be seriously bad news for any player who cares about getting a fair game.

    I'm with you Ivar...prefer an old school depleting shoe and manual shuffle. Or at the very least a deal from a shoe.

    I don't believe Shufflemaster's aren't fair...but a deal from a auto-reshuffled deck/shoe every hand is a move in the direction of what RNG games offer.

    Live game developers/operators should be looking to distance their offering from RNG as much as possible. Particularly on VIP tables.

    Out of interest was the table you're referring to a private table? If so which casino?
    cheers

    Can only assume it was momentarily out of action.
    Unless Viktorija has developed some crazy shuffling skills and now goes by the name the Shuffle Master

    Shuffle Master was in use when I looked today at VIP table B.

    Cards were dealt from shoe as normal procedure.

    On Casino Hold'em it works great, saving the dealer from shuffling after every hand.

    Although, ... it would be so hilarious if one day it started throwing cards out

    Reminds me of a game we used to play as kids. You'd have a deck of cards in your hand and ask a friend if they wanted to play 52 Pick-up
    When they said yes (or regardless what they said) you'd throw the deck at them ...cards would fly everywhere, and then you tell them to go ahead and pick them up.

    never got old that one l
