I just added the following entry in my Encyclopedia of Casino Twenty-One, which is only available to BJRnet.com members:
MindPlay. A product of Bally Gaming. According to their advertising, "MindPlay is an advanced blackjack table that contains an extraordinary array of state-of-the-art optical and electronic sensors. MP21 constantly captures real-time data to instantly track and record every card dealt and every wager made for the ultimate in total, accurate reporting of table game results. With a click of the mouse, you can now obtain instant, real-time data for such key decisions as comp awards, dealer accuracy, table utilization, surveillance and security, and individual game performance with a seamless technology that is totally invisible and unobtrusive to both dealer and player. This remarkable advance in table game accounting can be installed into existing blackjack tables resulting in reduced labor costs, increased productivity, more effective marketing, and greater safeguarding of your casino's bottom line." Of course, that is the casino point-of-view. The reality is that MindPlay can be used to cheat players and reduce comps at the table. If casinos can use this technology against players why is it illegal for players to use the same technology against the casino?
