What Are The Repercussions of Being Labeled A Card Counter?

blackjack card counting and what casinos can do about it Most people conjure up some pretty nasty images in their heads when they think of the repercussions of card counting.

They think of being taken into a back room of a Las Vegas casino and questioned under a single, hot lightbulb.

They think of having their legs broken.

They think of being bundled into the trunk of a car and driven out to the middle of the desert.

These are all images that have been popularized by movies, and they certainly aren't true.

No reputable casino will take steps that even come close to the ones mentioned above if they suspect you of being a card counter.

The question that you are probably wondering is: what steps will they take?

There are a number of things that casinos can and will do if they suspect you of being a card counter. They might:

1. Distract you by engaging you in conversation at the table.

2. Utilize more decks of cards, thereby making it more difficult for you to count cards.

3. Shuffling more often.

Card counters can be banned from casinos as well. Card counting is not illegal, but casinos can also forbid certain people from playing at their establishment - this is their right.

If you are banned from a casino, then you will have a very hard time getting in (and staying in) if you try to enter the casino. Casinos have sophisticated scanning and tracking technologies that they use to keep certain players out of their casino.

There is also the possibility of being black-listed from a number of casinos. Certain players have been banned from most (or all) Las Vegas casinos, and are now forced to play outside of Nevada.

It's a cat-and-mouse game between card counters and casinos. There are no rules against card counting, but, as mentioned, casinos can choose to ban you if they suspect you of counting cards.

You are within your rights to count cards, but they are within their rights to ban you.
