This App is like having a very smart pack of cards with you at all times to practice your card counting skills.

Blackjack Card Counting simulates a shoe of cards with the gorgeously designed, Retina-Display-optimized original *Altenburger Spielkarten* with English or German artwork.

Draw cards with a swipe over the screen and count as fast as you can! Choose from a selection of the most popular and successful card counting strategies and check the count anytime. Toggle easily between single and dual card display by using your device’s portrait or landscape mode and optionally shake your device to shuffle the cards!

Because the App uses realistic graphics, you can train counting cards for the actual Blackjack tables, where you have to take care of so much more than just memorize the cards dealt. Blackjack Card Counting helps you learn to spot and recognize the cards quickly and assign them their value.

Blackjack Card Counting utilizes the Hi-Lo strategy by default to tell you the pack's current count whenever you want to check it. This strategy is not only very easy to learn but is regarded as one of the most effective counting strategies as well, because it simplifies the counting process, so that the player can concentrate on his surroundings instead. The more advanced player can also choose from over 20 additional strategies (see below for the complete list) to unlock via In-App Purchase.

An explanation is integrated to support beginners. Contrary to what popular movies like „21“ suggest, counting cards is not difficult and only requires the ability to count +/-1! To be able to effectively count cards in a casino, you just need some practice in recognizing cards and assigning them their correct value quickly - and that is what you can easily learn with this App.

So close to perfect


The lack of a resettable timer to track how quickly you're moving through the deck(s) is a GROSS oversight. The developers should know or ideally be part of the audience for this app. If they did/were they would know how important tracking speed is. If they included that and the ability to keep track, as well as a mode that tested you periodically and rated your accuracy, this would be 5 stars.

Great practice for beginners and up

The app is very simple to navigate and use. It comes with the hi-low strategy of card counting but you have the option to purchase MANY more in the app. It also lets you choose between 1-10 decks. While doing the game, it gives u a neat and understandable graph for the point system of each hand. I found this app extremely helpful for learning new black jack strategies.

Well made app but needs improvement


This app gives a solid method in which anyone can improve their counting abilities. However, things like past statistics and improvement over weeks or even months would make the app fuller. App still had easy to use design and deserves a 4 out of 5.
