Since i got my iPhone there was only one thought in my mind : How great would have been if i had this phone in highschool/college? I cheated most of my way through college anyway but just imagine….
You can do so much with this phone, but today i found out about another thing you can do : count cards and win big buks. If you are planning on do that, your basically too late because the Nevada Gaming Control Board sent a memo to casinos last week warning them of the app.
LAS VEGAS – Nevada gambling regulators have warned casinos in the state about a card-counting program that works on Apple Inc.’s iPhone and iPod Touch that illegally helps players beat the house in blackjack.
Card counting itself is not illegal under Nevada gambling laws, but it is considered a felony to use devices to help count cards.
The Nevada Gaming Control Board sent a memo to casinos last week warning them of the program.
In blackjack, certain card counting techniques help players determine when they are likely to win a hand and adjust their bets accordingly.
Nevada learned of the program from gambling regulators in California, where officials at an Indian casino found customers using it and tipped state authorities.
