    Are you sure all cards are there? Casinos may take a few aces and faces in Egypt.

    That absolutely crossed my mind. There are very few laws if any in Egypt.

    Check out YouTube. Do a search for the Trojan Games. My favourite is somethinng like the snatch and jerk. Think I'll do a check on Ramses games.

    The house always wins

    The good:

    1. Early surrender
    2. Double after splits
    3. Resplitting of Aces
    4. Dealer stays on soft 17
    5. Double any two cards
    6. Blackjack pays 3:2
    7. Dealer deals 80% of the shoe.

    The bad

    1. European rules (no hole card)
    2. No peak blackjack (The dealer doesn't peak for blackjack and therefor you will lose an entire double)
    3. 6 Deck shoe

    I did the math using Wizard of Odds and came up with a positive expectation of +1.3%. I've been playing for 3 months using perfect basic strategy a la European rules, everyday for 2 hours a day. I've averaged about 100 hands per hour and I always bet minimum $5 USD. But, after three months I lost $450. In fact, I've lost consistently 9/10 days.

    Again, please help me. Is my math wrong? Why am I consistenly losing? Remember I've played over 135 hours and have bet over $67,500.

    I'm not using a counting system. I'm only using perfect basic strategy.

    Thank you!
