I waste way more time than I should on these.

I have found the Solitaire games to be programmed in a way that there only X many games at each site and, after a few visits, you get to recognize the way the hand will play out. Some are so there is no way you can win. Some are set up so you cannot lose. A few are set up so the outcome is in doubt; but surprisingly few like this.

So far, the Hearts game sites have been similar. I have played hearts quite a bit in real life, but my online experiences have been way different and far worse than in real life; enough so that I can recognize the program's bias. I think they are programmed to work against you depending on what cards you pass at the start.

The Texas Hold 'Em sites I have tried so far have not seemed so obviously biased. Here is one I have enjoyed.

Warning: It seems to be addictive and should not be attempted by those who contribute to my social security checks.

I play a good deal of online Hold Em at Poker Stars. I don't see any particular bias.
