Blackjack Error Simulation

The CV philosophy of casino realism requires sophisticated support for errors. Players and dealers both make errors and this must be taken into account for both practice and simulation of results.


CVBJ Error Support (Practice software)

Of course Casino Verite Blackjack warns you if you make playing or betting errors. But, dealers make errors too. In fact, the huge growth in casinos over the past 15 years has greatly increased the incidence of dealer errors. If you simply assume that the dealer doesn't make errors; you will lose money. And the dealer probably makes more errors than you think. If you set the appropriate options, the CVBJ dealer will make occasional errors. You must click an error button to indicate that you saw the error. Your catches and false catches are recorded and reported just as are playing and betting errors. Dealer errors supported include:

  • Insurance Payoff errors (incorrect amount)
  • Blackjack Payoff errors (incorrect amount)
  • No payoff on Win (on close hands and particularly on hands with many cards)
  • Bust on 21 or less (on close hands and particularly on hands with many cards)

More are planned.


CVData Error Support (High-speed simulation)

If you are simulating an error free game; you are not simulating casino Blackjack.

Player Errors

  • Play Errors per Hour - This option can be set to determine the effect of playing errors on the selected strategy. Errors will be generated at the set rate. Player errors consist of not hitting, splitting, doubling or surrendering when called for by the current strategy. The generated errors are common errors.
  • Betting Errors per Hour - This option can be set to determine the effect of betting errors on the selected strategy. Errors will be generated at the set rate.
  • Deck Estimation errors - This is more complex. Using a method I call deck contouring, you can specify different error amounts depending on penetration. For example, with one deck left or one deck dealt, you are less likely to make an error in estimating decks left than 40% or 60% through the shoe. You can specify the errors in detail depending on depth.

Dealer Errors

There are seven dealer errors some that help the player and some hurt the player. The large number of new casinos means dealer errors will occur. To simulate dealer errors, set the number of errors that will occur per 1,000 situations and turn on the associated option.

  • Lose Pushes - Pushed hands will randomly lose at the specified rate.
  • Push Winning Hands - Winning hands will lose.
  • No bust on Dealer 22 - A four or more card dealer 22 will be treated as a 21
  • Pay Pushes - Pushed hands will randomly be paid
  • Push Losing Hands - Losing hands will push.
  • Pay Early Bets - If a player busts, he sometimes will put up a bet before the dealer plays his hand. If the dealer then busts, he will sometimes pay the early bet.
  • Bust on Long Hands 21 - A 21 made up of four or more cards is treated as a bust.
  • No payoff on side bet - The dealer does not pay when you win a side bet.
