Vegas' Most Wanted: iPhone Card Counter

HBO shows come to iTunes

Jail or the wrong end of Tony Soprano's temper? Is there anywhere the iPhone can't get you?

TUAW reports that casinos in Nevada (and we presume elsewhere eventually if not already) have been warned to look out for next generation card counters powered by iPhone apps (the use of which, like any technological assist, is a felony in the gaming state).

Doesn't look like anyone's actually been caught doing this in the wilds of Vegas yet, though who knows what's going on in private, back room games around the country, or the world.

What's next? Someone going to sneak one onto the set of Price is Right?

Vegas' Most Wanted: iPhone Card Counter


Card counter works good. It has a few bugs. Definately a good learning tool and worth the money.
@above- it doesn't count your cards in an actual game silly.

I hope people don't ruin this for me. I will be upset if they tell me I can't take my iPhone to the Texas Hold 'Em tables in Atlantic City to listen to music while I play. I know they are already skidish of most electronic devices because of the potential to cheat.
