Here's the deal.

I used to play poker quite often.. between AC trips.. friendly tournaments.. and illegal ring games in Philadelphia.. I've seen some real ****.

I decided to try out pokerstars years ago.. before they shut down and reopened..
I played a free tourney and placed 12th out of roughly 13000. Bought me into another tourney with a chance to win actual money. I placed 9th out of 6000 and won like $250.

Took that 250.. played 1-2 nl.
first hand i get dealt kings. Some guy raises in an early position.. I reraise. He goes all in. I call. He has queens. Flops a queen.

I rebuy at a different table.

first hand i get dealt aces.
Same thing.. raise reraise..
All in. Guy has kings.

Turns a king.

Lost my winnings.

Now.. I took it at face value and decided to give it another shot. Next thing I know I'm getting bad beats every other hand and have drained my bank acct of 2 grand.

Let me be very clear..

there is no tangible deck online

There are bots programmed to beat you.

These are facts.

I've entered rooms where people are like "don't play with ______" (some player) "it's a bot"
After observing, I watched these supposed bots not once lose a hand. In like.. ****ing 2 hours.

Casinos are rigged in favor of the house..
And online casinos are extra rigged

Gambling online is literally one of the dumbest things you can do on the internet. It's not bad enough people go to Vegas and lose their homes.. now you can throw your life away from within the comfort of your home.

I agree with you, falsifications happen quite often. Therefore, you need to be able to choose an online casino with a valid license. Alternatively, you can take a look at the new online casinos here, preferably with bonuses. Then at least you can not spend your own money at first and check whether you play with a bot or not.

I wouldn’t recommend online gambling. Too risky and high probability of getting scammed out of your hard earned money!

Buy more gear instead and have something to show for it.

Well, I dunno, I have seen opposite examples. One of my friends gambles from time to time. And he actually won some money. The funny thing is - he won it on slots, which is barely impossible. He won $300K. And bought a new house. He used some sophisticated strategy he invented and keeps in secret. He just told me to use this site for "training". I don't really know how he did it, but he did it somehow. Maybe he just hacked some casino, lol. Or maybe his legendary strategy really exists.
