"This is outstanding software. It is the best, most
realistic casino Blackjack practice software I have seen. Any player,
regardless of skill, will improve his game using Casino Vérité
Blackjack. I highly recommend it."
(2004 World Series of Blackjack Champion,
MIT Blackjack Team Manager)
"As a manager of the MIT Blackjack Team I've
trained many players, and I have to say that Casino Vérité
has no peer when it comes to BJ practice software. If you're serious about
taking your knowledge and understanding of blackjack to the next level,
I strongly recommend the Casino Verite suite."
(MIT Blackjack Team Leader)
"We always wrote our own simulators from scratch
on the MIT Blackjack Team in the 90's, because we found all the existing
software at that time to be severely lacking in functionality and power.
That's why when I evaluated CV and all its components, I was extremely
surprised at what it could do. Not only did it fully match, and in some
areas surpass, the power and flexibility of our custom simulators, but
it made the whole process of evaluating and comparing different games
and strategies intuitive, simple, and a downright pleasure to use. We
now recommend CV to all students taking our Blackjack Science Seminars."
