    While the casino has ONLY a 0.5% advantage, this is a purely theoretical thing that would only happen if each player plays the perfect game all the time. In fact, Blackjack is a very profitable game. Most gamblers rely on luck. They studied this in the Netherlands. Gamblers that do not play according to the book tend to stand too early. It is a psychological thing: When you get one card too much and go bust it is YOUR MONEY that is taken from the table. In plain view of all other players. When you pass and lose, you all lose. Less embarrassing

    Apparently if card counting is illegal, thinking with your brain should be as well. I've never gambled IRL (not really interested in this). But to beat the Fallout New Vegas game you need to break the bank for three casinos to get an achievement - there I've found blackjack table, got used with rules, and I've found out it's really easy to win there: basically you remember drawn cards and make estimate for the next one.

    It's been shown in simulations that you can employ card counting to some degree with a CSM. the edge is incredibly small though, so most counters won't waste their time with it.

    The blackjavk edge in my area is only 0.37. I've been counting cards a couple years, and I've been backed of many times. It's actually pretty easy to get back in though. Turnover in casinos is very high.

    I once had a goon working for Las Vegas stand over my shoulder when I was on a blackjack table having beginners luck, and winning every round. I recall he asked me to remove my shoe since I was making a "clicking sound" with my toe (just a nervous habit). I told him no and left. Later I lost my winnings playing pai gow poker, whose rules I never understood. True story and to this day I hate casinos. Just as well.

    I used to be a card counter. Such a stressful job. I was being banned, yelled at, and etc by casino employees. Now I play poker. It’s not as stressful. I’m pretty good at both games but poker is more stable. Blackjack is more math and concentration. Once you’re banned from one casino in town, most likely they will let other casinos know. And don’t even get me started on how hard it is to find a good game.

    When doing calculations you assume person only bets ones per session. Which is not the case. If you bring $100 to play blackjack, you don't lose $0.5 on average per night. But lose 0.5% per bet. So if you play for a long time you are likely to lose most of the money you brought to casino. So for casino to earn $1Bil, they don't need people to bring $200Bil, but much much much less
