eConnect Countdown is a revolutionary tool which monitors casino Blackjack tables to reveal information indicating when a "True Card Counter" is likely to make their move. The system analyzes the cards coming out of the deck to understand when the Advantage Players are likely to bet larger amounts of money, giving them a greater chance to win.

Card counting is a casino card game strategy used primarily in the blackjack family of casino games to determine whether the next hand is likely to be favorable to the player or to the house. Card counters are a class of advantage players, who attempt to decrease the inherent casino house edge by keeping a running tally of all high and low valued cards seen by the player. Card counting allows players to bet more with less risk when the count provides them with an advantage as well as minimize losses during an unfavorable count.

The system was invented and developed by eConnect and the company has applied for a provisional patent for its innovative design.

"Blackjack card counters rely on casino surveillance teams to fail at catching them and while the surveillance teams do find card counters, many others go unnoticed due to the lack human resources and other circumstances." Commented, Travis Whidden, eConnects Chief Technology Officer. "With Blackjack Countdown, the software engine proactively monitors the cards and lets the staff know where to look for advantage play. We essentially reduce the amount of time wasted on table audits and instead we look at the true count just like a card counter would. Our system thinks just like the card counter, except its operated by the casino. This helps to reduce the gaming operators risk and evens the playing field between the player and the casino."
