Webtopia has produced a highly controversial app which allows any online blackjack player, professional or amateur to keep track of their card count.
The app knows as the “Blackjack Card Counter” can automatically calculate the “true count,” with a greater degree of accuracy than manual methods. The app’s features allow you to keep track of the total counted cards, and then calculate a “true count.” The app has been developed by experts and professionals and offers you a range of options to cover all blackjack scenarios and to have a slight edge over the house.
The House Edge
In a traditional blackjack casino game, the house always has an advantage. However, by keeping count of the number of high and low ranked cards, the player can reclaim this advantage, and over time, can beat the house and reap the rewards. For example, if the app tells the player that there are more high cards than low remaining in the deck, the player should bet more. The player has an advantage when more high cards are in the deck, particularly near its end.
Even though the card counting app only offers a small advantage, it is enough to ensure significant wins over time.
Using the App
The owners of the app market it as a method to help learn how to play, and for playing with your friends. However, using the app in a licensed casino would be illegal in most, if not all countries, and could result in potentially serious charges. Although, the creators did include a “stealth mode” whereby the phone appears to be off, yet the buttons remain active and the app is still running.
Overall the app is near perfect. The software is cutting edge and accurately keeps count and is far more adept than a human being could possibly be. It will certainly afford players an advantage over their opponents.
