Hi I am a microstakes winning player and never believed that online poker is rigged as I believe in variance and as we play more hands online it tricks our brain into believing the poker site is fixed or rigged against us. But I think why would a site risk that as they earn millions from rake. But a mate who believes it’s rigged asked me last night “so you think the 888 bonus wheel you spin every day is not rigged” of course it is I replied. So he’s convinced that if that wheel is fixed and not random then why can,t the poker itself be fixed! I know it’s not random that wheel but I have won a few 16.50 big fish tickets this year from it! I still don,t believe online poker is fixed but my mate have got a point as we all know that wheel is fixed!

The bonus wheel is part of the reward system. It should reward active, or, perhaps, support many losers, which means it should not be completely random, as it seems. This option also sounds logical.

re: Poker & Have My mate proved to me 888 is rigged?
Basically, a seperate device is shuffling decks 24/7 and put them in a bin... when a deck is needed, one is picked from there... always using a new deck at the beginning... "How does Pokerstars shuffle the decks" on YouTube can maybe answer some questions about this..
Now is it rigged? Maybe for bonus and stuff like that.. but a dealer in a live game can rig a game so why not an online game?
However I prefer to believe in variances of online poker, mostly after seeing the EPT Sochi this week.. serisouly, twice in a day, I saw split pot because of a flush on the board, both in diamonds, both had the ace on the river.. I also saw AK vs QQ, at the same moment at 2 different tables on 4 active tables and guess what: both players with queens had the red queens.. AA vs KK vs QQ happened also on day 1...
Now, is EPT Sochi rigged?

Life is funny. Everything in life is based off greed and cheating , corruption. Religion, politics, life all look for angles. Do you think corporations went into business to break even? No do you think if there is a way to get more that they would put up those bad intentions?
Everyone needs proof. Our society deems it necessary. As with everything it will come out some day. Just not today.
Look for continuous situations and decide for yourself. If you can predict it as you can but still can't fold because of +ev situations then all you need to do is retrain yourself. You never wondered why most winning online players can win in live poker but very few live win in online poker. Just saying. Everybody has their views. Doesn't make them right or wrong just different. See you at the tables
