Porto Alegre, Brazil (PressExposure) January 05, 2010 -- VXZ-Spectrum announced the release of version 1.0 of CARD CONTROL, a card counting application.
What is Card Control?
Card Control is a portable application for counting cards while playing card games in MS-Windows.
The difference between an intermediate and a good player is the ability to count cards. This eliminates guesswork and gives you a clear advantage. There are a finite number of cards in each deck, so each ace that is played decreases the odds of receiving further aces until the cards are shuffled again. So, one of the most important skills in card games is knowing what cards are left in play.
Card Counting Methods are card game strategy used to determine when a player has a probability advantage. There are many methods to counting cards. Each game has its own strategy, so the best method is a "perfect memory" to remember all the cards still in play. Well, most people do not have the desire, time, or energy to do what it takes to become an expert card counter. Card Control helps you to remember what cards are still in play.
The Card Counting Controversial
In February 2009 a story about how the Nevada gaming board sent out a memo warning about a iPhone App, was picked up by Reuters and sent to media outlets all around the world. The application "A Blackjack Card Counter" was a card counting system to help blackjack gamblers. The Nevada Gaming Control Board issued an alert to "all non-restricted licensees and interested parties" warning of the emergence of iPhone card counting apps. Buying the app is not illegal but using an iPhone or any device while at the Blackjack table is. Counting cards is a common practice among skilled blackjack players, and it is not illegal if you are able to perform the functions in your head.
