Blackjack Games, Drills and Training

The Casino Vérité Blackjack software includes over 500 options and many Blackjack games as briefly outlined on this page. The aim of these games is total immersion in the environment of a real casino. CV Blackjack is used for card counting practice and drills. See CVData/CVCX Blackjack Simulators for information on high-speed simulators.

Casino Vérité Blackjack Philosophy

Casino realism remains the main philosophy behind CV Blackjack. CV Version 5.6 focuses on the learning process - for beginning, intermediate and advanced players. Many beginners are intimidated by counting because it is quite difficult at the start. Eventually it becomes second nature. But even then, most Blackjack players are intimidated by more advanced play. It is difficult to get started and to even know if you are using advanced techniques correctly. Version 5 is focused on moving forward, step by step, and tracking your progress over time. You will gain a realistic feel for the application of new techniques and if you attempt to advance too quickly to more complex play, you will see your error rates increase before you experience casino losses.

The cost of errors is also kept by player hand and dealer upcard and can be displayed along with the number of errors and strategy tables.
