Losing with straights against River full-houses 4 times in one night possible? Casino Fixing?

I just has a Poker nightmare in a local casino today:

I had my top straights being crashed by river full-houses 4 times in one night! In other words, I had 90% chance to win in each of 4 cases until the last card, and I lost in all of the 4 cases, as other players always ended up in miraculously making their full-houses... So mathematically, this was 1 in 10,000 possibility (1/10 x 1/10 x 1/10 x 1/10) and yet this happened.

Is this game fixed by some casinos? I still can't believe... At first and second such bad beats, I kept my cool and didn't tilt... and third one, again I tried to calm down and played ok and still was in good shape with some good play, but the last hand took all my money! When I saw the 2. pair on the river, I felt that I might be losing against a full house again, so I checked with my very nicely hidden straight (A-J) and the guy shoved... And I said, this can't happen again and called and obviously lost all money...

I had several really continuous bad beats before but this is insane...

Funny thing was that, I lost the last hand against the owner of the casino!! Yes owner seemed to be playing for fun... But, the casino seems to be respectable and they actually organize a country's poker tour several times a year. It is hard to believe they might fix cash games but I really feel weird now...

They probably rigged the deck but still you should have folded the river on most of these hands.

Also these losses are tax deductible so I wouldn't feel too weird about it.

I've run some numbers and I have come to the conclusion this is indeed possible

Should I have folded? I think absolutely no. If we were playing Omaha, yes but this is texas...

Board was 10 K Q 8 10 ... So, he could have lower straight, or top straight like me, set, or 2 pairs, and could be trying to get the pot by shoving... If I would have J 9, or A K, or 2 pair, I would fold he might think... Players can shove with a straight or set to scare you off thinking that you having full house is a little possibility.

Besides, after beaten by 3 river full houses already, I said this can't happen again...

Do you guys know how the casinos rig the decks in poker tables? and is there anyway to be protected?

Games in Texas are usually on the up and up.... I doubt you got cheated. Now if this happened in say, Omaha Nebraska, I'd be a little more concerned.

Fold out of turn when you make your straight next time.

Board is 99333, I have Quad nines and show it proudly...my opponent looks disgusted shows one card...a 3; then with a wry smile he tables...wait for it....a JOKER! I couldn't believe It, 5 of a kind! It was too sick for me to stomach that so I just stormed off and never step foot in a casino again. Your rigged fears are not unfounded OP.

Low probability events happen.

If you get one of programs* where you're playing against computer players, and play many hands, you'll see this for yourself.

*E.g. Texas Hold'em Pro
