Gambling

I am no expert but it seems to me that the gambling in this game might be ever so slightly rigged.  Thankfully its dirt cheap though...I was doing the blackjack challenge where you have to double down so I was just spamming the button regardless of what I had...it takes about a hundred hands to get it...I think I lost a dollar....but in the entire time the dealer only busted twice...like i said im no expert but that seems a bit fishy to me.  Poker is my current challenge and that is slightly more annoying because the other characters dont seem to play very well which makes it hard as heck to predict on top of that busting someone out is not very easy because they tend to win once they get low on chips....

 

I may or may not have killed half the town after about 45 minutes and watching the table become a high stakes table with my money  lol

I havent played black jack yet, but I can tell you that every single time I've played poker I have made the entire table bust out by the time I was done. So its definitely not rigged you just have to know what you're doing. And in my experience I havent noticed anybody winning more when they had less money. If anything it gets a lot easier when you have a huge money lead because you can bully them around and just keep taking their blinds

knowing what youre doing plays a part for sure, but each player is different from another....for instance there was a guy that called me no matter what he had or I had and there was another guy that would fold every time somebody raised it.   Im sure they have other personality types too.   For this challenge it was flatneck station, Saint Denis, and Valentine in that order of difficulty.  I had no issues with the first 2, but valentine I had to finally do it by ALL IN all the time...I had to make a run to the stables a few times to reset the whole thing but i finally knocked a guy out

I find it pretty hard to believe that one of the dudes at the poker table in Valentine didn't cheat. Whenever I had two pairs he also ALWAYS had two pairs but a couple of cards better than me. I think he pulled that stunt 6-7 times during the 3 in-game days we played. When I finally after 3 buy-ins managed to have more money than him he quit...But I went after him, started antagonize him, then he ran away so ran after, knocked him out and looted the $7 he took from the poker game. One of the most satisfying moments in the game so far to be honest. Having to sit there and listen to his taunts made me furious.

im curious, do you know how to play black jack? do you know the actual strategy people use like not hitting when dealer shows a bust card? it isnt a game where you just try to get close to 21 everytime, you have to know when to hit and stay... if every hand you are trying to get as high a number as possible then that is why you are losing

RDR1 allowed you to cheat with poker and I seem to remember RDR2 suggesting it's possible this time around too, but aside from one scripted occasion I haven't been able to slip in an extra card.

Is it possible at all?

 

EDIT: I'm unable to check the clip in the post above this at my current location. If it's in there I'll see it later and sorry for asking then.

This.

 

You have to play the game's Blackjack like you would in a real world casino, so just doubling down at every opportunity is going to backfire a lot. You only double down when it makes sense to double down.

Depends what you're trying to do. Yes, if you're trying to make money. But if you're just trying to win the ridiculous Gambler Challenges, then you're going to spam the double down button as much as possible just to get it over with!

 

And the poker ones aren't a whole lot better. I played some good, sensible poker in Valentine - and over half and hour's play, whittled two of my opponents down to 10 and 2 cents respectively (they were both ridiculously tight players); then the fourth player rivered a full house and busted both of them in the same hand - meaning I had wasted all that time playing properly. The quicker way to win that 'bust out players' challenge would to just have gone All In - Rebuy - All In - Rebuy until you find a hand and a fish!

Cheating or not, they need to add it to online!!  Id much rather spend 30 minutes at the table to make 10 bucks than to do another mission that pays 3.  The economy is just horrible.

Legal issues!

 

Once Online starts allowing people to pay real cash for currency, then gambling in Online would essentially become real gambling. They'd need a separate license, which would vary country-by-country and US state-by-state.

 

Never going to happen.

yeah, most likely not but i dont know enough about how the currency works yet in the game.  I do know you will be able to buy GOLD, or at least that is what i heard. Now depending on whether or not you can turn gold into cash would be the question, i havnt seen or come across that option but i havnt really looked either.   If Gold cant be converted into cash then they could get away with it i would think.  Now if you can simply buy cash in the game with real money then you are most definitely right and no way it will ever be allowed!  Personally, i dont think you should be able to buy anything useful ever in a game.  People should be able to purchase clothes and stuff like that but never a gun or anything that gives you an advantage over other players but thats for another thread altogether.  More than likely you will be right on the money with it and it will never happen.
