Card Counting Info
Counting cards when playing BlackJack can provide a player with information on how best to wager. If done correctly a player can get an advantage over the house which means more profits over time. It's as simple as that. Counting cards is not illegal as long as external devices such as an iPhone are not used while at the tables.
Counting cards is not as difficult as you might think. Most people assume you have to remember every single card that has been played. Fortunately, that isn't the case. Card Counter can teach you various counting systems but defaults to the "High-Lo Count" system that was created by Harvey Dubner in 1963. It is the most widely used counting system for both amateur and professional players because of its power and simplicity. You don't have be a math genius to learn and use this system. All you have to do is use Card Counter to study, practice, and sharpen your skills.
How to Count Cards
The counting system works by keeping a running total in your head that tracks the ratio between high and low cards. The counting system will have a positive running count when the deck has more high cards than low cards. A deck that has more high cards than low cards is called a hot deck and offers the player several advantages. First, the player is more likely to get Blackjack or at least dealt a higher starting hand. Second, the dealer is more likely to bust which means the player wins. When a deck is hot the player should increase their bet as the chances for winning increases.
A cold deck means there are a higher number of low cards than high cards. The running count will be a negative number when this is the case. Based on this information the player should just bet the minimum and wait for the deck to get hot again.
Here's how it works for the Hi-Lo strategy:

Rules of Card Counter
Card Counter will help you improve your card counting skills while having fun at the same time! There are many levels and rounds of play, each increasing in difficulty. Go through each section one at a time and try to get a perfect count score. Each round carries the count over to the next so be sure to always use the previous count as your starting point! Always remember the running count because it will not always be displayed at the start of the round. If you answer incorrectly the running count will be briefly displayed so you can get back on track.
The game settings is where you can configure if you want the voice enabled, enable help advice on wrong answers, reset high scores, and set the card counting system you want to learn. The default is the Hi-Lo system which is recommended if you are just learning to count cards. If you are already trained on another system (KO for example) or if you want to input a different custom system then you can do so from this screen.
About True Count
The true count should be used in determining how much to bet. It is calculated by taking the running count and dividing it by the number of decks remaining in the shoe. For example, if the running count is 6 and there are an estimated 2 decks left in the shoe, then the true count is 6 / 2 = 3. Typically a bet factor is applied based on the true count and what you normally bet. For example, if you usually bet $10 then you would do the following:
