||FreeBSD Ports Latest amd64
From The README:
Xblackjack is a MOTIF/OLIT based tool constructed to get you ready for the
casino. It was inspired by a book called "Beat the Dealer" by Edward O.
Thorp, Ph.D. of UCLA. A number of important statistics are maintained for
display, and used by the program to implement Thorp's "Complete Point System"
Beginners can learn a basic strategy which doesn't require counting. The
best strategy employs a simple card counting technique which can be used to
distinguish favorable situations. Avid players can learn to compute Thorp's
high-low index, which takes the number of unseen cards into account.
The index is used by the program to suggest a bet, indicate when you should
buy insurance, and whether you should stand or hit, etc. You can test the
strategy using a slider to control "autoplay mode". Pressing the message
button below the playing area provides hints; the current count, index
and strategy table are revealed.
The xblackjack port currently does not have a maintainer. As a result, it is
more likely to have unresolved issues, not be up-to-date, or even be removed in
the future. To volunteer to maintain this port, please create an issue at:
