California Casinos to Nevada Casinos: Beware of Card Counting iPhone Apps

blackjack.jpg As the iPhone commercial says, “there’s an app for just about anything.” Want to get bruised up by security guards in a dark room behind a casino for counting cards? Yup there’s an app for that. Las Vegas Review-Journal reports, “California gaming authorities tipped off their Nevada counterparts to a blackjack card-counting program that can be used on either the Apple iPhone or the Apple iPod Touch portable music player.” Counting cards is not illegal in Nevada casinos (just ask these guys) but using a device like an iPhone app to help count cards is considered a felony. The cleverly titled “Blackjack Card Counter” app is still available in the iPhone App store for $3.99.
