The Apple iPhone is Las Vegas's Latest Worry
The Nevada Gaming Control Board has warned casinos across the state

Nevada, where gaming revenues fell 19% in December, has a new worry: the iPhone. Word of a card-counting application for Apple's iPhone and iPod Touch has reached the casino authorities. The Nevada Gaming Control Board has warned casinos across the state about players getting illegal help courtesy of the program.

Although card counting is not illegal in Nevada casinos, using a device to aid in the counting of cards is considered a felony under Nevada laws governing cheating.

The iPhone/iPod program "calculates the true count and does it significantly more accurately," according to a Gaming Control Board memorandum.

The program is installed through Apple's iTunes Web site.
