I would agree with AD.
Although I have NEVER played on line, live or video, etc., I have talked with a couple of serious government regulated casinos in Asia, looking to partner, etc., and I had in depth discussions with them. It is on the up and up, at least on their end. I do not see how a live on-line bac game can be manipulated or the reasoning when we all know the highest majority of the player's results, etc.
Are there operators that attempt to manipulate either kind, probably? However, doing due diligence as any customer/consumer should with this or any other business venture, would protect you from the obvious and proven rip-offs.
The highest amount of players will beat themselves even in a 100% fair and legal game.
