There is a bug that causes the game to go into a locked state that I cannot seem to recreate and if anyone could give me reliable recreation steps, I would greatly appreciate it.
Additionally, I am going to add a help section to explain all of the abbreviations and interface icons. I hope that some of it is self explanatory, but understand if my UXing skills are terribad.
The gist of playing:
The yellow icon is the visual guidance to playing basic blackjack strategy with the illustrious 18 variants and counting with hi/lo.
RC = running count
TC = true count
CR = cards remaining in the shoe
OP = optimally played.
You can turn off the hints in the options, the sounds and make various adjustments. The thought is after you learn how to play using the strategy, you can turn off the hints and see on the stats screen whether OP = true. This will be your guidance that you’re still on the right track and then you can adjust your betting to test yourself making money! I really hope all of you enjoy it and find it useful!
I will also plan on releasing an IOS and web version of this game for those without Android devices.
Finally, yes the app is supported by ads, but I made it so that ads don’t show but once every 10 minutes and only between reshuffles where counting has to restart anyways or if you go bankrupt and want to replenish your 10k bankroll.
So you could in theory make 10k bets over and over and not see ads until hopefully you’ve enjoyed the exercises for a full 10 minutes of continuous playing. If you’re really ad averse and bothered by that, a “secret hack” to my detriment, is if the app goes to sleep and ejected from memory or you force close and reopen the app the timer resets. Otherwise all of the other state still persists for you to continue playing without ever seeing ads.
But please don’t, I’d love to have this support my dreams of making awesome games.
