Is Card Counting Legal

Philadelphia Inquirer calls criminals card counters

Rate this Entry
Philly.com, a web portal for The Philadelphia Inquirer, posted an article titled "Three men caught counting cards are arrested". They were Blackjack cheats and they were arrested for illegal actions. But, they were not card counters. They were marking cards, which is obviously illegal. The conflation of card counting and cheating is common, and incorrect.

In this case, the article refers to actual cheats as card counters, as opposed to calling card counters cheats. I am not certain which is worse.
