Student Created Anti-Counters Program

Student from Scotland has created a casino program helping to detect card counters.

According to BBC, the system uses images from casino surveillance cameras to record the cards that have been in the game and analyze players' strategies. In addition, this tool also can detect dealer errors. Card counting helps players to determine their gaming odds by tracking the cards dealt in the game. Needless to say, casinos are against these players, they ask them to leave or even ban them from the casino.

The creator Kris Zutis, 22, last-year student form Dundee says he was planning to create a program for poker game. Blackjack turned out more appropriate game for this software. The program counts cards, analyzes player strategies and bets. If some player turns out to be playing according to the optimal strategy, the system detects him as a card-counter.

The program is still tested and if proven to be effective, will without any doubt bring lots of cash to the author, leaving card-counters without any chance to win.
