If you are like us, you’ve realized that a successful card counter isn’t someone who simply reads a book, then walks into a casino as a professional blackjack player.


From my time as a professional card counter and running a multi-million dollar blackjack team, I’ve come to understand that becoming a successful card counter requires the right information, trainingand support.

The BJA Pros and I have put in our time beating blackjack – taking millions from the casinos’ coffers – but we want to do something bigger by empowering you, along with an entire community of aspiring card counters and advantage players.


The majority of gamblers buy into the casinos’ lies and advertising, hoping against the odds for a get-rich-quick scheme. If you’re here, it means you are unwilling to be a part of the majority. It’s more than luck that you are here. You are part of the 0.01% that are willing to think differently, research, work smarter, and seek to use the odds to your advantage to beat casinos for profit… all that to say – you’re in the right place.


Here’s a link to our membership benefits. Our proven model has allowed our members to collectively take many millions from casinos. We encourage you to research other training solutions if you want. We are confident that you’ll find Blackjack Apprenticeship to have the absolute best (and most proven) training, and largest repository of card counting resources anywhere.

Card Counter Loudon Often

Meet “Loudon Ofton”

Loudon’s got stories to tell, Loudon has been counting cards professionally for over 10 years, parachuting into casinos all over these United States for nothing less than hand-to-hand combat. No fight is like the next. “I am closing in on my millionth dollar taken out of the sniveling clutches of the casinos. Top surveillance brass once hired to stop me have sought me out on occasion to tell me I am among the best at what I do. `Most Notorious,` is a term I have heard bandied about in reference to myself on more than one occasion. But we all know these types can’t be trusted farther than they can be thrown, so let’s agree to strike any such flattery from the record before it gets to our heads. Most Feared Card Counter in the Universe will do just fine, thank you.”

Our Apprenticeship Model

There is a lot of information out there on how to count cards but few places that give you the tools you actually need to do it.


This is why we created our cornerstone product, The Card Counting Video Course. If you’re serious about becoming a professional card counter, this is where you should start.


From there you should connect with other card counters to learn from them and hear stories of people who are beating casinos and winning money right now. People learn in different ways. That’s why we have apps, podcasts, interviews, emails, e-books, videos, software, charts, and in person Blackjack Bootcamps just to name a few things.

Whether this is something you want to do full-time or as a hobby, we believe that to be a successful card counter you need to be apprenticed by professionals who know how to take you to the next level of counting cards.
