Attorney sues casinos for using card counting systems

Las Vegas attorney Bob Nersesian has filed suit on behalf of a gambler at a casino in Reno, NV, seeking to stop the casino from using the automated MindPlay blackjack table for a practice known as ‘preferential shuffling’. That’s when the casino shuffles away any player-favorable situations. The suit alleges that the casino used an automated system to indicate to the dealer when to shuffle, thus altering the natural odds of the game.

    If a cut card is used, then no issue. If they blatently use the “dealer’s count”, or shuffle based on a nod from the pit, the entire casino should be boycotted.
