There's a new movie coming out called “21” starring Kevin Spacey which features MIT “Blackjack Teams” of students who are able to beat the odds in the Las Vegas Casinos.
Back in real life, BackgammonMasters the makers of backgammon online games, has decided to put their blackjack software to be tested by the real-life MIT "Blackjack Teams" to see how they measure up. Yes they actually exist and The MIT Team will be using their unique strategies to increase their odds of winning in the online game. The results should be very interesting to see.
In addition, Backgamomon Masters is allowing Blackjack enthusiasts to "Tell a Friend Bonuses" so that more people can test the system.
One distinct difference between online Blackjack and the real casino version is that the online game rooms will have an innovative basic Blackjack calculator allowing players to see the statistics and hence, increase their odds of winning. Of course this is not allowed in real casinos!
