I am posting this thread beacuse I am one of those poker players who ha been influenced during his poker playing by the possibility of playing blackjack in the same poker client even while playing a sit and go.
What do you think of blackjack inside a poker room? In my opinion that is the best way for poker rooms to steal players' money because everyone can go down with the tempation of trying to earn some extra money by blackjack but, as all the other casino games, you also risk loosing all your bankroll especially if you loose the first 3 -4 blackjack hands in a row: you get angry, you repeat your bets maybe betting more and so you loose more and this can really become a catch 22 for you up to the last cent of your money!.
So my question is: Do you prefere poker software with casino games added or like POkerstars only poker rooms where you can actually only play poker? In addition do you think like me that the blackjack games are sometimes a bit rigged? Beacause it happened to me very often to see the dealer hit blackjacks 4, 5 times in a row! That's absolutely impossible!!

it does not matter to me whether I can play blackjack, because I do not play, because you only lose your money! For me, it is important that everything is made clear. Whether because blackjack is now or not does not count

As much as I do like the casinos BJ and fruit machines dwindle my BR (most of the time had a few nice wins), I think a poker room should be what it says POKER, BJ is for the casinos, unless its aginst outher ppl then it becomes more of a game, i forget now but I know there is a site set up for players vs players for BJ (bit like the UB BJ tourns)

Do the blackjack button force you to play that game? A lot of rooms have the option to play blackjack out of the poker client. If you cant stand the temptation, play at stars or full tilt. They do not have it.

I try to avoid pokerrooms that have black jack and casinos My biggest problem is to stay away from slot machines and black jack tables i think i have some gambling problems with thoose things. I can play poker very diciplined but then i think i can double up my winnings at the Black Jack table. Nearly never successfull

I like just the poker as I'm guilty of playing casino games or video poker especially after a bad beat and this is the best way for them to recoup the bonuses they give you as you are guaranteed to lose in the long run.

Is there really a system where you can get an edge in online BJ? Seems odd to me, since the deck i shuffled for each hand counting is impossible, and the odds for the game are set to give the house the upper hand. I've read about stupid roulette systems where you double bet on loss or run empty rolls, but if you know anything about odds you realise pretty quickly that it's all b******t unless ofc the software is faulty. On topic, it doesn't really matter to me, i don't play much BJ so basicly any other factor would be more important when chosing a poker room. Once, after a good poker session I decided to play some BJ with 10 % of my winnings and actually made another 40 $ from it. I then decided to quit while I was ahead and havn't played BJ since.
