CAN CASINO’s BAN CUSTOMERS WHO MIGHT GET TOO “LUCKY”?

CAN CASINO's BAN CUSTOMERS WHO MIGHT GET TOO “LUCKY”?

In a recent podcast, “When the house can’t win the game, it will change the rules” (June 9, 2022), Walter Bradley Center director Robert J. Marks continued his discussion with mathematician, computer scientist, and engineer Salvador Cordova on the mathematics of gambling — who wins, who loses, and why. Last week, we looked at the struggle between the casino and the “advantage player” who knows very well how the system works and spots its weaknesses. But now, what about banning a suspiciously “lucky” would-be customer outright? Here’s what happened to Sal Cordova:

This portion begins at roughly 11:10 min. A partial transcript and notes, Show Notes, and Additional Resources follow.

Sal Cordova: One of the better things is that they ban addicted gamblers. Some of these gamblers that enter a program to kind of be in recovery, the CASINO‘s will cooperate with each other to say, “We’re going to make sure this guy doesn’t get in.” Unfortunately the casinos would love them to come back, but sometimes the city or state laws say, “Okay, you can’t set up a casino here unless you have a gambler’s recovery type program to help them with their addictions.”

So the casinos will comply. It’s like, “Okay, we want that license, so we’ll do it even though we’d really like to just get these guys, we’re going to meet them halfway.” Because advocacy groups will insist.

Robert J. Marks: But how do they monitor people? Like maybe a card counter or a gambling addict gets expelled. Do they do face recognition? Do they have a guy at the door that has memorized all these mugshots?

Sal Cordova: They use facial recognition now. And sometimes now you have to present your ID… Also, if you’re a frequent patron, the dealers would recognize you, the staff, so…

Robert J. Marks: But just like a card counter, you could casino hop, it seems to me.

Here’s how Sal Cordova got caught being an advantage player

Sal Cordova: Until they photograph you really well and then they circulate your photo — which they did to me. It’s called the surveillance information network; the acronym is SIN. So my photograph was circulated in the SIN network and one time I was in a casino in Michigan and got axed.

I drove 300 miles and I said, “They’re not going to get me there.”

Robert J. Marks: And they got you.

Sal Cordova: I walked in, I played a little bit. And they said, “Oh, well done, Mr. Cordova.”

Robert J. Marks: So what do they do, do they come up and tap you on the back?

Sal Cordova: Sometimes they’ll be subtle like that where they don’t want a physical confrontation. But if they really want you out, they’ll bring security and say, “Sir, may we have a word with you? We’ve determined that your action is too strong,” or they won’t even say anything but“Sir, may we have a word with you? Please step away from the table. You can cash your chips, but you’re not welcome to come in the casino anymore.” Or sometimes they’ll be half nice, they’ll say you’re welcome to play any other game, but you can’t play blackjack anymore.

Now, they have these tribal casinos around the land that are run by Indian reservations. And so they’re not subject to federal and state law. I mean, I’m sure that there’s some things that the states can do, but in those cases… one time I was taken aside by the casino security and then detained. And they said, “Well, it’s up to the tribal elders to decide your fate.”

Robert J. Marks: Oh my gosh. Because you’re not on US land, technically.

Sal Cordova: Exactly. I’m on the reservation. They let me go after they just kind of tried to intimidate me.

Robert J. Marks: Did it work? Oh yeah, I would imagine. I’d be fully intimidated.

Sal Cordova: It worried me for a little bit. B as long as they’re not going to draw their guns if I try to run away… what they did is they took my driver’s license and wouldn’t return it.

Robert J. Marks: Are you serious?

Sal Cordova: Yeah. They said, “Can I have your ID?” And then he just ran off with it. And I said, “Okay, I could walk out the casino, but I can’t drive my car back home.”

Robert J. Marks: So how’d you get your license back?

Sal Cordova: They came back 15 minutes later and said, “Okay, we’ll let you come back to the casino, but you can’t play blackjack the way you’re playing it.” When you bet you have to bet… Your starting bet has to be this… You can’t veer your bet.”

Because that’s how you beat it is when you’ve calculated the odds are favorable to you, then you raise your bet. So sometimes it’s very obvious if you’re a card counter you start off-betting $5.

Now there’s one guy, I saw it in Las Vegas, this was not on the tribal casino, but this is the ideal way to play it is you’re just betting the minimal amount or better yet, you’re just kind of standing at the table and watching the other players bet. And when what they call the “shoe” is hot, meaning it has a very high density of ACEs and tens.

Robert J. Marks: Okay. So you got all the bad cards out of the way.

Sal Cordova: Exactly. It’s independent trials, but in blackjack, the information you gather from the cards that are dealt out is telling you what’s remaining. So if it’s a “hot shoe,” meaning it’s rich in tens and ACEs, that’s the time to bet. This guy, he started betting $5 at a time. By the end of the deck, he was betting $1500. He knew the odds were in his favor. It was fun to watch him play.

So the countermeasure [the casino uses] is, “Well, we’re going to be nice. We’ll let you play blackjack, but you can’t veer your bet.” They call it “flat betting.” Whatever you start off with, you just got to keep betting that amount.

Robert J. Marks: Now what do they do to discourage card counting other than surveillance? …

How casinos change the rules to discourage advantage players

Sal Cordova: They’ve changed the rules, the payouts in the game. So it used to be, if you got a blackjack, it would pay three to two. You’d basically get 50%. So if you had a $10 bet, if you won, you’d normally get $10. But if you happen to have a blackjack, they’ll give you $15.

Robert J. Marks: I see. Okay.

Sal Cordova: The first thing they did is change the payouts in some games to six–five. You can’t beat that game with ordinary card-counting techniques. The other thing is tthese continuous shuffle machines where, after the dealer deals out the hands, they’ll put it right back in the shuffler.

Robert J. Marks: Oh, so the cards are returned and there’s an automatic shuffle and it’s just like a fresh deck all the time. And you can’t card count that.

Sal Cordova: Unless you have a full table where you might get a little bit of an advantage because you’ve seen some of the cards, you don’t have a very large advantage… The only time that I’ve known that the continuous shuffle machines were beaten is, again, because the casino made a marketing mistake. Like the loss rebates… The coupons were too generous. And somehow the advantage players got hold of all these coupons and they cleaned the casinos out for millions in Macau.

Robert J. Marks: That’s fascinating. They also use multiple decks now. They used to not use multiple decks, is that right?

Sal Cordova: You can count down multiple decks, I’ve done it.

Robert J. Marks: So how many decks can you count down?

Sal Cordova: I’ve counted down eight.

Robert J. Marks: Oh my gosh. And they also do surveillance. How does that work? They watch how you play and…?

Sal Cordova: They can watch how you play or they have a videotape of how you play and then they’ll put it through a computer and say, “Okay, these are the cards that were dealt out. This is how the player is betting and the way he’s playing his hand,” and the computer will do an evaluation. They’ll watch you play like through three shuffles, three shoes or three decks. And then they’ll say, “Okay, the odds of him doing this randomly are like that.” Otherwise…

Robert J. Marks: And they do this in real time, is that right?

Sal Cordova: No, no. Sometimes they’ll just do it just through video surveillance tape. That’s what they did to me when the tribal elders had… They reviewed the tapes and said, “This guy’s too good.”

Robert J. Marks: Tell us about the interesting players.

Top advantage players are a natural for the stock market

Sal Cordova: I think one of the most influential would be Bill Gross. He ran a gigantic hedge fund. I think he had an injury and so during his convalescence, he learned how to card count. And he went to Las Vegas for a year. They kicked him out, which probably was the best thing for his career. He went on to be a trading in bonds and he had the largest bond hedge fund. I think it managed, like, a trillion dollars.

And his saying was “The way we run our hedge fund is like playing blackjack every day. We’re always looking for advantages.”

There’s Russell Sands, who is a blackjack player and a backgammon player. He teamed up with Richard Dennis. Dennis started out with $400 or $1,400 and turned it into 400 million using mathematical techniques, I think he teamed up with a mathematician named [William] Eckhardt and they just made a killing. So there was a bet between him and someone else to say, “Can we actually make good futures trader or is it something that just is intuitive?”

He [Dennis, along with Eckhardt in 1983] formed what was called the Turtles. experiment. He gave volunteers this program of how to do futures trading, just very simple rules. And they obeyed it and they made a killing. Russell Sands was one of these Turtles.

Note: Hollywood has noticed. The film 21 (2008) “is the fact-based story about six MIT students who were trained to become experts in card counting and subsequently took Vegas casinos for millions in winnings.” – IMDB

Sal Cordova: Another one was Alan Woods. He made $2 billion in horse racing. He had computer analysis and he just made a killing off of it. During the crash of 2008, he had all these options bets on the NASDAQ market and he pulled out six weeks too early. He would’ve owned the NASDAQ figuratively speaking. They apply their casino skills to financial enterprises and some of them are quite successful.

Robert J. Marks: Let me ask you this, is there still an opening for an advantage player in Vegas? If a person is smart enough, could they go in and there’s still these loopholes where they could do be advantage players?

Sal Cordova: That’s a good question and I don’t know the answer. It’s been now about 10 years since I was kicked out. After I was kicked out, I went on to other things. The last time I went into a casino was just to use the restroom on my way to one of the conferences you and I attended actually out and there in West Virginia.

Online and live gaming vs. advantage players: It’s more difficult than formerly to be a successful advantage player, according to Michael Stevens in Casino & Gaming (July 10, 2020) because the computers that control online gambling are programmed “to stamp out any type of advantage play, such as card counting.” However, he suggests, “As with any other type of casino, you stand a better chance of winning with live gaming when choosing games with lower house edges. Baccarat, blackjack, and French roulette are your best bets in this regard. Baccarat features a 1.06% house edge when you bet on the banker hand winning. You can also enjoy a 1.24% house advantage when wagering on the player hand. French roulette offers a 1.35% house advantage. ”

That said, at Sydney News Today (December 22, 2021), Jack Martin writes, “Online casinos face a particular challenge in dealing with advantage players, as they can exploit a loophole in the system of random number generators to predict which cards will be dealt next. Online casinos have a lot less control over their games than land-based casinos, as they rely on third-party software to provide the rigged games that players have come to expect from casino gaming.”

It would appear that somewhere out there is still a nerd who will game the system.

Robert J. Marks: Well, we’ve been talking to Sal Cordova and next time I want to ask you about your career in card counting and I want a tutorial on how to card count, okay?

Next: Can you really be a card counter without resorting to magic?

Sal Cordova explains. Often the advantage player, who astounds us by seemingly beating probability, is taking advantage of the casino’s upper management’s weaknesses.

Here are the writeups (with partial transcripts, notes, and links) of the previous podcast with gambling maven Sal Cordova:

Gambling: WHY the house always win in the long run… The casinos are not cheating. They rely on the Law of Large Numbers, part of the mathematical structure underlying our universe. Robert J. Marks and fellow engineer and mathematician Sal Cordova look at the many creative methods gamblers use to improve their odds.

Casinos: How nerds gamble and win, using the Law of Large Numbers The American Physical Society created Las Vegas’s worst week in history and Don Johnson cleaned out Atlantic City. How? Sal Cordova explains to Robert J. Marks how nerd gamble and win, mainly by deciding whether to play at all and, if so, how to manipulate the house’s strategies.

What Makes an Online Casino Safe in the UK

Safety should be your number one concern when searching for new online casinos. However, with such widespread availability, how can you be sure you picked a safe casino? Luckily, there are several key parameters that only safe casinos have, which is what we’ll be covering today.

With our Online Casino Safe in the UK guidelines, you’ll be able to make informed decisions before you can enjoy fun games and exciting bonuses. See how you can find a safe online casino in the UK:

Licences

Some gambling markets require casinos to be certified via a licence to operate legally. Licences are issued by gambling commissions all around the globe, including in the UK. The entity responsible for overseeing casino licences in the UK is the United Kingdom Gambling Commission (UKGC).

Having a licence means that a casino passed extensive security and safety checks. You’ll have nothing to worry about once you’re at a licensed online casino.

Data Protection

A 128-bit SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption is the industry standard for securing online payments and other sensitive information. Essentially, encryption transforms data into random strings that computers can only decipher with a valid encryption key. No one except you and the operator can access your data.

Since casinos handle sensitive details, they must also comply with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) guidelines. This law requires casinos to explain to players how their data is treated and kept safe.

Third-Party Audits

Casinos are guaranteed to be fair through the work of third-party auditors. These organisations check the fairness of casinos’ and providers’ RNG (Random Number Generator) algorithms. RNG is a mathematical model responsible for making casino games genuinely fair. Some of the most reputable gambling auditors include eCOGRA and Gaming Laboratories International (GLI).

Online Reviews

The Internet is vital when it comes to making online gambling decisions. When looking for new casinos to play at, it’s always good to check some online reviews first. That way, you can rely on other players’ experiences to help you decide whether or not you want to gamble at a particular website.

We recommend sticking to gambling websites with primarily positive reviews, especially regarding payment methods and safety.

Secure Payment Methods

Licences make online casinos safer than ever. However, the introduction of untraceable payment methods such as cryptocurrencies has helped fraudulent casinos scam many players worldwide.

For this reason, it’s essential to ensure your chosen online casino benefits from secure payments, such as PayPal. PayPal payments are only available at casinos that comply with the PCI Security Standards Council guidelines.

Final Thoughts

Now that you know how to search for safe online casinos, you can begin your gambling adventures. Use our tips to guide you through the fantastic world of casinos and enjoy exciting opportunities.

As the number of online casinos is increasing day by day, one thing that sets best online casino apart from the mediocre ones is how well they handle customer relations. They consider the casino business a luxury industry and like all luxury industry customer experience is paramount.

From the minute an account is created, online casinos make a significant commitment to their players. The Casino must not only preserve the customer’s sensitive information, such as bank account numbers, but they must also be available to assist the consumer in any situation.

Following these parameters distinguish the Best Online Casino in India from the grade-B online casino.

Customer Support 24/7

Customer support is the main factor to consider when we evaluate the best online casino, and one important tip you should follow is to study your preferred casino online to ensure that it has a solid reputation in this regard. There are thousands of customer reviews for each and every Online Casino in their social media, just reading a handful of them would give you a fair idea of how good the casino’s customer service is.

The top Online Casinos are made up of a healthy balance of experience and excellent customer service. No one would consider risking their own money with a Casino that doesn’t seem to know what they’re doing and can’t answer inquiries.

Quality Game And Trusted Game Provider

As different casino games providers in India offer a wide diversity of live casino games and virtual slot games. To find the best among the casino we can distinguish from their game provider, a review of each game provider can be found over the internet. Playing with the best game provider players can have a good experience on different new games, portals are bound on the standard rules and regulation of gameplay. Start Playing with trusted online casino games. Keep your eyes on the game provider on which casino you are playing on.

Positive Track Record that is Reliable and Long-Running

Select a casino based on its history and present situation, why you ask? Because during this time period, a casino could be improved as well as its track record could not be as good as before. By doing this it can be an assurance to yourself whether you can play on it or not.

Look for reviews or information on forums from other players about any online casino you choose to visit. This will allow you to determine whether a casino is one that aids its players and provides a high-quality site, or whether the brand is one to avoid.

Bonuses and Promotions

Check out the promotion and bonuses that online casinos are providing. Best Online casinos always take care of the customers and want to increase the experience of the players. To distinguish it from the best look over the ongoing promotion are offering to take care of the players. Promotion helps you to play for the long run. Once you get loose over the game you can get a losing commission over there as well.

These are some of the parameters that should be looked at for best online casino in India. Always before trusting a casino, do a little research and stick with your respective brand so that you can enjoy all gaming experiences playing with live casino online real money games or online casino slot games in India.
