Casino Verite Blackjack Lite
... Check for availability | Return to catalog menu

Windows Software by QFIT

"Purely from the perspective of a practice/training program, CVBJ-Lite is in a class by itself. Nothing on the market touches it, except for QFIT's full blown Casino Vérité, that this "lite" version is based on." - Arnold Snyder, Summer 2003 issue of Blackjack Forum.

CVBJ-Lite is a close cousin to the full version of Casino Vérité Blackjack. It uses the same ultra-realistic graphics and play, but many of the 500 features in the full version have been removed and the price reduced accordingly. It still remains the best software rendition of casino blackjack for the purposes of card counting practice available, except of course for the full version. And, it can be later upgraded to the full version.  The chart below briefly compares the features of the two products:
