Why are 888 Blast Games Legal?

I wonder why blast games are legal and why there is nobody complaining
about this insane variance stealing money machine.

Who is monitoring casino's and how far can they go?

If you look at Blast games they are perfectly designed in stealing
everyone their money, there is no edge, it is taken by the house.

I have a few points and probably missing a few.

1. You have only a 02:00 minute time clock for the buy-ins $0.10 and $1 games. Even micro money add up for the site apparently.

If you think you can work your way up, building a bankroll at the lower stakes, your are wrong. If you are lucky you play 1-4 hands and then you and at least 2 other players on average will end up all-in.

Say hello to your big friend mr. variance.

2. There is not a 02:00 minute time clock for $5 and up, so you think you chances are better at the $5 games, hold on to that thought. You will hit a whopping $10 prize pool ~57% for the $5 buy-in games, so somehow you will lose your money faster.

3. E.g. for the $1 games you will hit a whopping $2 prize pool ~56%, thus you and 3 others pay $2 in rake 56% of the time.

4. The time clock starts to countdown when the dealer has dealt the cards, oh no wait. It starts to countdown before the cards are dealt.
So, when you think 02:00 minutes is short, ~3-5 precious seconds are already gone.

5. People can stall, disconnect, think very long on all streets etc. , or a weird combination of these. Maybe you are lucky and don't play a single hand.

6. You will hit the jackpot 0,001% , yes, there is a chance.

7. You will start with a 25/50 Blind Level and 5 chip ante. So with only 1500 chips, get ready for faster all-ins with so much already in the pot and fast blind/ante levels.

So does a casino has any limits , or should they also comply with certain rules?

You know all this but you still play them. Simple solution just don't play them. Seems your not smart enough to work that out.

Why don't you just not play them then.

People still play the lottery. Should that be illegal?

OP you make a good case for not playing that game. However, I would argue that you can still play it...
