So after writing the logic for the blackjack simulator I decided I could put in a little extra time to write the full interactive game implementation. I’ve recorded a video of me playing through a full shoe and winning with the assistance from the app. I’ve got a few more features to implement, but I’m pretty excited about publishing it soon and helping all of you to beat the house!
Hello my one or two followers! As promised, here is the video on how to do BlackJack card counting and a demo of the simulator! The results appear to prove that it works.
For those who want a TLDR and prefer reading instead of watching my super entertaining video, these are the main things to learn. (It would be super awesome of you, if you still click my video to like and subscribe)

Appropriately size your bets.
For the bet sizing, I didn’t find any really good reading materials on. Instead, I ended up doing a lot of simulated scenarios. My video has a few examples how the betting adjustments will impact things like minimum bank roll and avoiding heat.
As for an update on what’s going on. Regrettably, I’m pausing on Tanks Vs Jellyfish, because work, family, extended family and everything else is taking it’s toll. I want to get my dopamine fixes with lower hanging fruit victories and I was thoroughly entertained making this simulator.
I am pivoting to write a super rad BlackJack game to practice and develop skills to beat the house. While watching the simulator over and over, it gave me an itch to play and practice. Hopefully I can impress that one friend that would go to Vegas with me.
I do see that there are other fantastic BlackJack trainers out there. Those seem great and for those who can’t wait look them up. Regardless, this will be another fantastic learning/growing opportunity for me to build something and productionize.
Thanks for all of you who are reading, watching and giving me support.
