This is, quite simply, the most sophisticated, visually stunning, and feature-laden blackjack practice program suite available at any price. Nothing else even comes remotely close. Using it, anyone with a computer can closely mimic any playing conditions that my be found at just about any casino anywhere.
Calling it a practice program doesn't do it justice. It is indeed that, but it includes a great deal more. It does not include a simulator, although Qfit offers a couple of excellent simulator products that may be purchased separately these will be reviewed at a later date. It grows with the user. Beginners can use it to master the basics of card counting.
Intermediate counters can use it to zero in on specific areas of weakness and correct them, as well as increasing speed and accuracy. Pros will find it invaluable for practicing cover strategies, adding side counts, etc. Tournament players will find a sophisticated and detailed tournament mode, allowing for development and refinement of those skills unique to tournaments.
Trying to compare Casino Verite to other practice programs on the market is similar to comparing a stripped Honda Civic to a fully loaded top-of-the-line Mercedes Benz. The Civic may be a good little car, and both may reliably get one from point A to point B, but there the resemblence ends. So what makes this product so awesome? Let's start with the graphics. The typical practice program uses a birds-eye view of the table, as if one were suspended directly above the table.
Casino Verite uses 3D photo-realistic graphics to provide an ultra-real image, with the perspective just as if one is seated in front of a blackjack table, complete with a photo-realistic fully functional shoe and discard tray. A variety of screen resolutions are available, all the way up to x The larger screens are generated at higher resolutions, not stretched, so the image is just as sharp and clear as in the smaller screen sizes. One may play from the center or either end of the table.
These graphics simply must be seen to be appreciated. However, the graphics are only the beginning. There is much, much more. In fact, there are over options. There are over rule variations alone. The software can be set to mimic just about any game found in any casino anywhere.
Want to duplicate the game found at a specific casino? There is a searchable database of over casinos worldwide, with game conditions for all of them. It even includes maps showing the casinos locations.
TrackJack subscribers have it even better. In the extremely unlikely event one should come across a rule variation not listed, it is possible to create new rule variations without being a programmer. All of the common counting systems are pre-loaded in database. Due to some licensing problems, the KO system was not included in earlier versions.
Most users will not notice the difference between matrices, or may even prefer the "OK" version it is slightly simpler and just as powerful. If one must have the exact KO matrix, it only takes a few mouseclicks to change it. In fact, up to 10 custom systems may be created. Multi-level counts and side counts are supported. Both simple and complex betting schemes may be entered.
Cover betting schemes may be incorporated. Game play may be controlled by a variety of methods. Cursor motions similar to actual play may be used - a scratching motion for a hit, side-to-side motion to stand, etc.
Alternatively, all play can be controlled from the keyboard. Popup menus allow one to check the count both running and true between rounds, if desired, along with several other parameters. The program may be set to alert the player any time a playing or betting error is made. In fact, just about any aspect of the program may be customized by the user. The game is fully animated.
The cards do not simply appear, they move in a realistic manner. All speeds - dealing, payouts, other players - are fully adjustable. It is even possible to set the speeds to vary, just like in a real game. Cards may be dealt face-up or face down. As the game is played, the shoe is depleted and the discard tray fills in a realistic manner, so that deck estimation may be practiced. Just about every vagary one might find in an actual casino can be simulated if desired.
Players can jump in and out of the game. It can be set so that dealers make up to four different types of errors. Penetration levels can be made to vary from one deck to the next. I cannot imagine how it would be possible to provide a more realistic simulation of actual casino play on a computer.
About the only thing it won't do is take your money or back you off. Details of all practice sessions are recorded in great detail. Naturally wins and losses are tracked, as well as errors made, hands played, and much more.
Results may be displayed in a variety of charts and formats. As mentioned above, there are over options. This could prove intimidating, but fortunately the package is exceptionally user-friendly. Installation is a snap - the disk is inserted and usually auto-detected, and the installation starts automatically. A few mouseclicks, and it is over.
The first time the program is run, the user is introduced to "Cassie," an animated talking assistant who guides the user through basic setup and operation. Microsoft should take note here - unlike the "Clippy" character in Office, Cassie is not annoying and actually somewhat sexy - sort of a butch Lara Croft.
I think I'm falling in love. Cassie can be turned off if desired. Also included is something that, sadly, is becoming an endangered species these days - a real page paper and ink operators manual that is clearly written and easy to follow. The practice program itself is worth several times the price. However, a bunch of other useful goodies are included. There is a package of drill programs which allow the user to concentrate on specific areas of card counting.
In all, 35 different drills are included, including counting, deck estimation, even back-counting two tables, and much more. In addition, there are several calculators that allow for figuring off-the-top edge for specific rules, risk of ruin, etc. New to version 3. And there is even more. It is quite good I think, and the paint apps are subtle but suit the overall look IMO. Loved part 1 and 2, and the characters. This looks to be out of Part 1, before the Mark is reduced to a crippled shell of his former self.
That scene of the reunion of Ti Lung's character and Mark is truly the heart of the movie. Man, the mid's to mid's were a glorious time for HK flicks! I need to pick this figure up. I'm really looking forward to this one! Maybe it's just me but I just don't see Chow Yun Fat. There is room for a lot improvement with the sculpt.
I think the likeness is very gestural and spot-on. The paint app will make or break this figure methinks. It aint perfect, but what is Join Date Dec Posts Just watching At World's End, he surely have come a long way, and he single-handedly put trench coat back in the cool column.
