|Did he or didn't he Cheat?|

Under tons of pressure to respond, BetOnline finally did. Read that response here and then come back to this page and read my take on it.
My take: It doesn't really seem that BetOnline admitted any cheating but rather emitted the usual phraseology about upgrading its feed and its dedication to maintaining the integrity of online casino gaming on their site.

|Proof of Live Online Blackjack Cheating?|
Two years ago a live online roulette dealer was caught simply placing the ball on the winning number without even spinning it!
As the live online tables are usually off to the side of the busy main casino, sometimes the inspectors charged with supervising them just forget about them, leaving the dealers free to do more or less what they please.
And if that dealer is dishonest, the consequences can be huge for the casino.
This time the evidence of the live online casino cheating incident appeared on Youtube. The live feed came from Global Gaming Labs of Costa Rica, which is used by several online casinos. Professional blackjack player Michael Morgenstern was reportedly playing online blackjack at BetOnline when he recorded the incident.
It seems that the dealer on the video is actually dealing a second card and not the top card, which is a flaming cheat move that has been around for centuries.
But the result of this second-deal move is puzzling. It resulted in the player losing and the casino winning the hand. Had the move not been performed, the player would have won the hand. This begs the obvious question: why is the dealer cheating for the casino? Normally dealers participate in cheat-scams to aid a player or players he's in cahoots with, and then they split up the profits.
It's hard to believe an online casino would partner-up with a dealer to cheat players when they already have an unbeatable online edge.
When I get more info on this I will certainly pass it along.
