    William Hill....

    ..... is pretty easy to win cash out of!

    I've got an account with WillHill dating back to when I thought I knew about horses.

    Anyway, for the past few weeks when I get back from the pub on a Friday, I may have a quick bet on BlackJack that starts at £25 and ends up being £300 - £400 win. Which is nice.
    I thought it was just a 'thang' that happened to maybe get people involved in a bit of a false sense of security.

    Tonight, I got £902 from a £10 stake.

    Now correct me if I'm wrong but I'm thinking this is slightly taking the Peter Smichael.

    Am I just really good at black jack, or am I destined to lose at some point? Are they waiting for me to get **** so I will bet my house?

    No, it's live. Real ladies.

    Black Jack isn't a skill game, its a luck game (there is of course a small element of skill involved as with all games). At the end of the day, you've been lucky, you've done the right thing taking the money and calling it a day. The banker always wins in the long run.

    I agree. It just seems strange that I seem to win every time.

    Sometimes thats the way the cards will falls, I guess its a lucky streak. Just don't ever forget that thats all it is!

    well done!!!

    You must be on a lucky streak... stop while you're ahead. It does go downhill!

    How many hands did you see to get up to 900?

    bets? 0.10p? Did you play 2 hands? Follow the rules of blackjack? or gut feelin?

    yup, flip a coin 10 times and occasionally you will get 10 heads. just randomness and probability.

    some people are so stupid it makes me want to hurt myself.

    If the bookies did not win most of the time they would go bust.
    Need to be very disciplined with any type of gambling. If you allow yourself to start believing in winning streaks thats the time you could lose your shirt.

    All of the above!

    I know it's a luck based game, I know the bookies will always win! That's my point!
    Why have I won so much?

    I'm stopping now anyway as I have a gut feeling the tide will turn.

    Looks like it's not only my folks getting an iPad for xmas!

    As I was at £250 odd quid within a matter of minutes I just doubled up and told myself to stop at £1000.

    I noticed at least 5 at the table losing most of the time - and they were better anywhere between £250 and £1k a time.

    Casino games (especially roullette) have a very low profit margin for bookmakers, which makes them popular with punters. However, overall bookmakers make many, many millions from them because the turnover on these games is so high! Some customers will win, most will lose, but all bookmakers will win if they take enough money to cover their costs!

    How stupid would I have to be for you to hurt yourself? I'll do my best.
