The question that worries our members the most is what will be the future of blackjack card counters . Are the days of card counting over? Many believe so.
Automatic shuffling is being used at tables today, making random crawling or card counting impossible. The casinos ground shufflers will insert machines at the tables.
It is said that in places like Las Vegas – Nevada, surveillance cameras are used to analyze the skill of players and smart blackjack tables that track players’ hands and strategies using magnetized chips.
The Nevada Gaming Control Board, an agency that protects both the rights of players and casinos to ensure fair play, decided that casinos cannot alter games in a way that changes the frequency of payouts. Since then, many Nevada casinos have trained their dealers to count cards and shuffle as they please, and a wide variety of casinos also maintain card counter information, including names and photos, to try and keep them out of the game.
These casinos have large corporations that support them with great political power and monetary influences. Professional blackjack players, on the other hand, are unknown.
So what will be the future of this blackjack “war”? Is it starting or will it end soon? Despite all of its latest technological, political, and monetary influences, I think there is still a chance for a happy ending. With more than 25 states within the US offering blackjack games legally, there are more chances of winning for card counters than in the old days.
