FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How are the inputs/outputs handled?
To input data there are four toe switches, one above and one below each large toe. The value of the switches is 1,2,4,8. With a slight motion with the toe you are able to input card values VERY quickly. (You are able to input the cards much faster than a dealer can deal them.) The output is also in the shoe, a taper in the middle of the shoe vibrates against the bottom of your foot.
Does Casey use a count system?
No! Casey is far beyond a human +/- system. Casey keeps track of every single card, and based on the exact composition of the remaining cards, tells the player how to play the hand. In addition, Casey tells the player, at the beginning of each new round of play, precisely what his advantage or disadvantage is so that he knows how much to bet. We're talking about 10s of thousands of calculations Casey makes prior to rendering a decision-in less than a second! Casey plays PERFECT blackjack-every playing decision, and every betting index is based on the exact composition of the remaining cards.
How else is Casey different from card counting?
Casey removes all of the fatigue and hassle that normally go along with card counting. You simply input the cards and Casey does the rest-and does it perfectly.
How much can I make?
That depends on your bet size and number of hands you are getting per hour. If you play conservatively (without drawing any attention to yourself whatsoever) you will average two top bets per hour. A player with an
average bet of $100 would have an expected value (EV) of $200 per hour. That is based on 100 hands per hour. You can generally get at least 100 hands per hour if there are about four people at the table.
What does the computer look like?
Imagine a pack of cigarettes covered with black epoxy and you will have a very good idea of what Casey looks like. Not much to look at; Casey's beauty, after all, is internal. See picture of Casey here.
Is Casey worn in your shoes?
No. Casey, along with a small battery pack, is worn on your leg.
Do I have to wear boots?
No. The input/output switches can be placed in any shoe.
Can Casey be used anywhere?
No. The following states do not allow "electronic devices" in their casinos: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey and Nevada.
What about support?
Complete support comes with the package. In addition to the instruction guide, you will always have access to me via e-mail or telephone.
What about warranty?
A complete warranty. We guarantee that Casey will not break down from normal use. There are no moving parts inside, and it is encased in epoxy.
I am very skeptical about
buying anything over the Internet. How do I know that this is legit? The computer has been around since the mid 1970s. We are not some fly-by-night operation working out of a motel room.
Is this the same computer Ken Uston used in the 1970s?
Yes. Casey is the 5th generation of a computer built in the mid 1970s called, at that time, "George." For the full story, see here.
How long do the batteries last?
You use 4AA (1.5v) lithium batteries (e.g., Energizer or Panasonic). The batteries will last up to 15 hours. (Casey comes with a power supply that connects into the wall for home practice--that way, you do not use up the batteries while practicing.)
How long will the computer last? Will it wear out?
Caseys built in the early 1980s show no sign of wear. As I said, there are no moving parts, and the computer is encased in hard epoxy. You can use Casey for a period of time, then put it away, come back to it and use it again, etc. indefinitely. It will provide a lifetime of supplementary income.
How long does it take to learn how to operate the computer?
Learning the computer is easy. Working with a hand keyboard (for home practice only) it takes only a few days until you are completely comfortable with the computer. Then you practice with the shoes. Allow yourself about two months of practice-what takes time is not learning the computer (that's simple), but practicing with the shoes takes a few weeks working 1-2 hours a day. (Compare that to learning a count system-that takes about 6 months to a year.)
How is shipment handled?
I can send the computer to you by Federal Express or USPS.
Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions that are not covered here, or if you are ready to order a Casey.
