The ubiquitous and applications-heavy iPhone has just been fingered by Las Vegas casino regulators as a card counting medium that operators need to watch carefully.

Las Vegas casino operators are on the lookout for blackjack cheaters using a card-counting iPhone application, reports Associated Press. Nevada State gaming control officials have sent warnings to casinos about card-counting software that turns iPhone smart mobile telephones or iPod Touch MP3 players into illegal [in Nevada] tools for beating the odds at blackjack tables.

"Once this program is installed on the phone through the iTunes website it can make counting cards easy," Nevada gaming control board member Randall Sayre wrote in a February 5 letter to casino operators. "When the program is used in the 'Stealth Mode' the screen of the phone will remain shut off, and as long as the user knows where the keys are located the program can be run effortlessly without detection."

The AP report claims that players using the program simply tap a virtual button on the screen each time a card 10 or higher is turned up and tap a different button for lower-value cards. A mini-software program continually updates a "true count," which with one peek can provide feedback regarding a player's chances of winning by getting cards with total values that are closest to 21 points without exceeding that amount.

Nevada officials said they were tipped off that players in American Indian-run casinos in Northern California have been using the card-counting software on the popular Apple devices.

WOOOO real gentlemen - nothing at least as usual - they cant say the contrary of their last email i think.How explain that one day before as they rules said i am  not eligible for a bonus and one day after i am eligible ?and the problem is that i won the first day so how be clear when the second day i became eligible for  a  bigger bonus and that i have te permission to cashout ..but.nothing i lost.   there  will be any explanation I think:the only available that works in any same kind of   situation is that rules  can be changed as and when and how the casino wants - rules - no rules what importance  it was  a  freebie why will they pay ?i am stupid this is  the explanation.
