Online slots are just as unforgiving as real ones.  Real slot machines calculate what each barrel is going to be when it stops.  You really have no control over this no matter when you press the button.  Online slots are probably the same thing.<br /><br />Now when it comes to card games, I'm not sure how fair online card games are.<br /><br />So here's a suggestion, <b>don't</b> gamble!  There are plenty of sites that let you do it for free, and you won't have to worry about losing any money.  You can play the games just for fun.

I don't think that onlne casino games with cards are as fair as say a real casino.  Some might be but most likely the games have been rigged.  As for slots they are probably just like in a casino except you still might win less.  As far as I know there are no regulations on online gambling. If you want to gamble and have your best chance to win some money go to a casino.
