Perfect Play Blackjack Card Counter
While card counting is illegal in casinos, there seems to be a long list of iPhone applications out there developed for the sole purpose of perfecting the task. This BlackJack Card Counter app is one of the top runners. It provides users with precise, real time blackjack situational odds and analysis. It also employs the raw computing power of the iPhone with combinational techniques to provide the ultimate blackjack strategies in any situation. Whereas other similar apps employ inexpert card counting strategies that only give crude estimates of how to play.
Additionally, you are able to track all aspects of a blackjack game including player cards, dealer cards and other cards used at the table. You can calculate the best plays and odds based on the cards remaining in the deck. Track the current card counts using hi-lo, hi-opt I/II, Zen, and Omega II systems. This app chooses the cards randomly, supports 1-8 decks, employs a comprehensive simulator to find exact statistical odds, and it offers many more fantastic features.
