Casinos in South Africa prevent players to win

By Sophie Couard

Here is the testimony of a card counter from South Africa.

There are some effective techniques to win money in the casinos. Among the best known are the roulette martingales and blackjack card counting. Unfortunately, casinos are increasingly trying to prevent players from using such methods. That is exactly what a certain Robert reports, a card counter from South Africa.

A professional team

For five years, Robert visited casinos every night to play blackjack. He was part of a card counting group that passed through the casinos in the South African settlements and then usually left them with twice as much money in their pockets. However, he and his team members were increasingly banished from the casinos. The casinos judged that the players had too much luck and refused them further participation in the games.

For five years, Robert visited the casinos every night to win blackjack.

Today, it is very difficult to be a professional blackjack player as the tables are often equipped with automated card shufflers. Some providers do not always use these devices as they should. Therefore, it is still possible to win money by card counting and for this reason the casinos also use other techniques, so that the players cannot win too often.

Winners are kept away from hot tables

When a player's winnings pile up a bit too much, the casinos start offering players room and free meals. The reason is simple: they want to keep players away from hot tables in the hope that the player will return the next morning to lose their money on colder tables.

Intimidation and threats

He can no longer enter the casino without being advised by the staff to not play blackjack.

If the players refuse such offers of the casinos then the casinos also try to intimidate the players and throw them out of the casino. Although access to the casinos is not completely blocked, players are cautioned not to play certain games. For this reason, Robert can no longer enter many casinos without being approached by security personnel, who then tell him he should keep his hands off blackjack. However, if he decides to play at a table, the game is constantly disturbed and the dealers are changed a lot, which slows down the game enormously and irritates the players until they leave the table.

Unfortunately, this is the everyday life of many blackjack card counters.
