Online gambling website enlists MIT team
What better way to verify the quality of a website than to have a bunch of MIT students test the platforms. That’s just what online gambling website, BackgammonMasters has done.
The site, which specialises in games such as 21 Blackjack, Poker, and Backgammon, has recruited the skills of the MIT Blackjack Teams to test their new BlackJack platform and Basic Blackjack Calculator.
The Basic Blackjack Calculator assists the players by querying the next moves. BackgammonMasters multiplayer 21 BlackJack game works with five players competing against the dealer. The calculator can potentially increase the players' odds for "perfect play" and actually help those who practice counting cards.
By the very nature of online play, it is different to real casino play with variables that may not be seen in offline play in addition to different standards for the number of decks and randomness of cards. The calculator will help players recognise all possible choices in each hand faster.
The challenge set to the MIT Team is adapting their methods to increase their odds of winning in the online software version of this extensively studied game.
The results should make for interesting reading. BackgammonMasters has opened an invitation to all Blackjack aficionados to test the system by offering Tell a Friend Bonuses for teams of players who invite their friends to the tables.
For members of the site just looking to win a buck or two, there are the usual games and tournaments available. 21 Blackjack Tournaments have tables competing against each other for top winnings and grand prizes, which BackgammonMasters is already well-known for in the world of backgammon Freerolls.
