Rustico: AverageAmericanGuy: So what happens to casino cards after the day is over?

Some are drilled (so they can't be substituted back into a live floor-game) or otherwise marred and sold In the gift shop.

Some are destroyed.

Coincidentally, that's the same thing that happens to the strippers.

IlGreven: Relatively Obscure: "We played foolishly, so you don't win" should be illegal.

Here in the states, at least, that won't happen unless the Indian tribes let the government regulate their casinos like the other magnates do.

If you want pure, uncorrupted, uncheatable randomness, every game needs to be played on a computer running a suitable random number generator (and tough security measures etc.) and nothing but a display and a big red button in front of they player that says "HIT ME" that they can press or not press.

Any frills included for showiness or tradition like physical cards and dealers and such are added at your own risk.

If I were the judge, not only would I kick the case out of court, I would award punitive damages against the casino.

If the game is legit enough when the player was behind, then it is legit enough when he's ahead.
They didn't seem to mind much when he was over $700k in the hole.

Same thing goes for card counting in blackjack.
Pretty much anyone who plays blackjack knows, if you draw a 20, you don't ask for another card, because the chances that the next card will be an ace, are pretty slim, so the game of blackjack itself, is actually card counting.

What a bunch of sore losers.
There are few things (trust me on this) more satisfying in life, than conning a con man.
