The Blackjack Toolpack is exactly what it claims to be.  It is an extremely modern and high tech aid to playing online Blackjack and giving you more than a fighting chance of beating the odds.  The Toolpack was developed by myself, a computer programmer, over many years.  Firstly, I would like to make clear what the Blackjack Toolpack will not do:

  • It will not make you excessively rich in less than three months.  There will be no “I made £50,000 over the weekend” testimonies. There will be no photos of  people driving amazing cars or taking luxury holidays thanks to the Blackjack Toolpack
  • It will (probably) not enable you to give up your day job.
  • It will not make you irresistible to the opposite sex.

However, whether you’re a seasoned professional Blackjack player (just like roy on coronation street) or a total beginner wanting to learn the ropes, it will help you stand a very good chance of making money in your spare time.  How much money is totally dependent on you.

The Blackjack Toolpack:  a brief list of some of the features:-

  • Amazingly simple and straightforward to use even for the complete beginner.
  • The Blackjack Toolpack predicts the probability of winning the next hand and the amount of money to bet on that hand based on the % chance of winning and your initial bankroll.
  • The neural network is learning and adapting itself through a data feedback system the whole time that you play.
  • The Blackjack Toolpack shows in graph form winning and losing streaks as you are playing.
  • All the information created from a Blackjack session with the Toolpack can be saved in your documents and brought up again for comparison when you return to a particular casino
  • The five components of the Blackjack Toolpack are designed to fit around most online blackjack tables to enable you to see all the necessary data as you play.
  • The Basic Blackjack Strategy pops up as you play if you wish to use it.  No more switching from screen to screen or scrabbling about with bits of paper.
  • Some of the controls and settings are adjustable so that you can choose how many hands you want to analyse in each setting.  Due to the nature of the Toolpack I would recommend analyzing all the hands you play.
  • A list of recommended online casinos
  • An in-depth tutorial for both the beginner (a step by step guide of joining casinos and playing Blackjack using the Toolpack and the Basic Strategy) and the professional.

The Development and History of the Blackjack Toolpack

I have always enjoyed the game of Blackjack and rarely leave a casino after a night on the Blackjack table without winning.  I do not however claim to be a professional player.  My interest in the techniques and strategies behind the game of Blackjack became serious four years ago when my brother in law started playing online Blackjack to cash in on the bonuses offered.  I decided to give it a go and made £10,000 in 3 months playing on average 3 – 4 hours a night.

The Casino Bonus Bonanza (sadly long since passed)

Very briefly, I registered with a few casinos and played for real money using the Basic Blackjack Strategy (much more on this later with regards to the Blackjack Toolpack). Playing strictly by the Basic Blackjack Strategy reduces the house edge to an absolute minimum.  Each casino would offer a bonus, sometimes a one off on signing up but often on a monthly basis.  In order to qualify for the bonus you would have to meet with certain wagering requirements.

Real Play Example of the Casino Bonus Bonanza (taken from playing Blackjack at a well known online casino)

 I paid £50.00 to the casino and must play 250 games (or hands) to qualify for the bonus.  I wagered the minimum bet on each hand (usually £1.00 - £2.00) and play strictly according to the Basic Blackjack Strategy.  After the wagering requirement (250 games or hands) I would be roughly equal with the house (sometimes a little up say £60.00 and sometimes a little down say £40.00).  At this point the casino awards me their bonus, in this case £30.00.  I immediately stop play and cash in.  As you can see, even if I was down to £40.00 with the bonus added I still made £20.00.  If I am up say to £60.00 when I have met the wagering requirements and the bonus is awarded, my profit increases to £40.00.  The game in the above example took half an hour to complete.

As illustrated above a lot of people, including myself, made very good money from playing Blackjack online for the house bonuses.  Sadly, the online casinos soon caught on to the loophole in the bonus scheme and either upped the wagering requirements to such a degree that it’s not worth the time or have eliminated various card games from the bonus schemes.  Thus, if a bonus is awarded whilst playing Blackjack you cannot cash it in until you have played 1,500 times the value of the bonus plus your initial deposit on the slot machines.  Absolutely pointless!

The Creation of the Blackjack Toolpack
I am by trade a computer programmer and during this period of intensive online play it was very important that I kept a track of how many hands I had played in order to qualify for the bonuses, I therefore developed a small computer programme for this purpose.  The initial counting programme quickly progressed to charting whether I won, lost or drew with each hand played in the form of a graph.  It immediately became apparent that there were very distinct winning and losing streaks turning up on the graphs, furthermore each casino had slightly different graph patterns that could be saved and stored for future use.  I became fixated with predicting the next winning streak and hence The Blackjack Toolpack was born.

Blackjack Toolpack: The Role of Mathematics and Computing
 In order to explain exactly how the Blackjack Toolpack works it is essential to get a basic grasp of the role that mathematics and computing have played in the past with regards to Blackjack, so please bear with me.  To illustrate this we will take a quick look at the history of the Basic Blackjack Strategy.  In the 1950’s three men used a combination of statistics and mathematics to put together the first mathematical guide to Blackjack which was published in 1956 by Roger Baldwin and entitled ‘Optimum Strategy in Blackjack’.  In the 60’s Baldwin’s work was advanced by Edward Thorpe who published ‘Beat the Dealer’.  This book made such an impact that casinos had to modify the rules.  However, the panic was short lived as only a few (mathematically talented) people were actually able to implement the strategy and the casinos reverted back to the traditional rules.  The final piece in the jigsaw introduces computing.  Julian Braun made a Blackjack computer simulation and played thousands of hands, the outcome being the ‘Basic Blackjack Strategy’ which is the key to reducing the house edge to an absolute minimum.

The House Edge
It is important to realise here that casinos are big businesses; they make their money because of the house edge. In order to understand how the Blackjack Toolpack works it is necessary to understand the house edge.  Basically, each single bet that you make has a probability of either winning or losing.  For example, if you bet on heads or tails on a coin toss, the probability of the coin landing on heads or tails is 50-50 (known as an even money bet).  If you bet £1.00 on either heads or tails and the casino pays you £1.00 when you won this would be ‘True Odds’.   The casinos however, only pay for example, 95p instead of a £1.00 on a winning bet.  This makes the house edge for the game of ‘toss a coin’ 5%.  The House Edge is the difference between the true odds and the odds that a casino actually pays when you win.  Now, the relevance of this is that (in most cases) the house edge for Blackjack is less than 0.5%.  This means that you only need a 1% advantage and you will be well in the money.  The Blackjack Toolpack was designed with this in mind.

(If you are new to Blackjack do not let the above put you off the ‘Basic Blackjack Strategy’ is included in the Toolpack and is very simple to use and you can play without actually understanding the house edge).  The point here is that for many years mathematics and computing have played an essential role in Blackjack strategies.  The recent film ‘21’ although a little unrealistic in places, demonstrates this very well.  Based on a true story from the 90’s a group of M.I.T. students develop a mathematical card counting formula that increased their advantage over the house edge to well over 1% and made an awful lot of money. If you’re a Blackjack fan ‘21’ is well worth a watch for the pure fun factor.

 The Blackjack Toolpack has also evolved over time using a complex combination of gambling strategy, gambling probability theory (based on mathematical formula) and computing.  Whilst playing online Blackjack extensively I studied gambling strategies and gambling probability theory and developed a series of probabilities regarding whether I would win the next hand.  These probabilities initially made no overall sense.  I then brought in my computing skills and developed an artificial neural network specifically for this purpose.  Before I go any further we need to take a (very) brief look at Artificial Neural Networks and how they work in general.

What is an Artificial Neural Network?
An artificial neural network is a system (a mathematical model or computational model) that simulates biological neural networks. Artificial neural networks draw much of their inspiration from the actual processes in the biological nervous system. The key feature taken from the biological neural network is the ability to adapt to a changing environment and to learn. Most creatures and humans use a very complex network of highly specialized neurons (located in the brain) to perform the tasks of adaptation and learning.  The artificial neural network likewise consists of a large interconnected group of artificial neurons that process information.  One of the main advantages of using an Artificial Neural Network is that it does actually adapt and change its structure (i.e. learn) according to the data that it is given.  An Artificial Neural Network (as in the Blackjack Toolpack) is used to model complex relationships between data and find patterns.

Blackjack Toolpack and Artificial Neural Network
The neural network featured in the Blackjack Toolpack works in the same way as described above.  A series of probabilities are given to the neural network and it then learns formulas through the data that it is given from Blackjack hands previously played.  Once the formula is learnt by the neural network it will give an answer for the forthcoming hand in the form of percentage chance (or percentage probability) of winning that hand.  This figure, the percentage chance of winning, is also used to determine the value of the bet placed on the next hand.   The joy of this is the neural network in the Blackjack Toolpack will analyse the data from each separate casino and due to the feedback mechanism it learns patterns and sequences as you play.  Hence it predicts the probability of winning the next hand and the amount of money to bet on that hand (this figure can be changed by experienced players it is merely a guide, based on your initial bankroll, to keep you above the house edge).

As I said at the very start this is not a ‘get rich quick at the casino’ scheme.  The Blackjack Toolpack has been many years in the making and combines my passion for maths, probability theory, gaming strategy and artificial intelligence.   I have tried many of the so called formulas and strategies featured on the internet claiming to beat the casinos - most to no avail.  As far as I am aware there is nothing like the Blackjack Toolpack anywhere on the web today.  Do not delay in trying it out for yourself.
