Blackjack is now also descibed in a Cleve's Corner article in MathWorks News and Notes, http://www.mathworks.com/company/newsletters/articles/simulating-blackjack-with-matlab.html .
One of the less mathematical programs from an electronic textbook, "Numerical Computing with MATLAB®", by Cleve Moler. The book, and more programs, are available from http://www.mathworks.com/moler. A hardcopy edition of the book is available from SIAM.
I downloaded a zip file, it opens up fine, but blackjack.m file is not opening. As I understand it's an executable file. What program do I need to open it up? Thank you.
@Mark. Don't run the blackjacksim file, just the run the blackjack.m file. The blackjacksim.m file is where all of the functions are stored
IS THERE ANYWAY TO ADAPT BLACKJACKSIM TO EUROPEAN BLACKJACK RATHER THAN HAVING HOLE CARD TO NO HOLE CAR?THANKS
Hey I'm getting these error message;
Error using blackjacksim (line 8)
Not enough input arguments.
Error in run (line 96)
evalin('caller', [script ';']);
Am I being missing something?
Hello, when I play the game, I get a warning -- see below. I'm now using R2014b -- it's been a while since I played this. Are there any updates to this?

I've been writing my own. This is truly great. Better than I would've done! Great job!
Can you help us with the code?
One demo m-file would be very usefil.
Options are a bit limited (i.e. Can't vary bet size), but otherwise it's a very good simulation.
well made, i really enjoy the simulation. personally i'd love to see the option for various card counting strategies to see how they stack up.
Great Program. With a couple of tweaks I will use it to calculate the specific advantage using modified basic strategy under the rules of my particular casino.
Thank You for writing this. You saved me a lot of work... and probably money too ;)
Let me know if you are interested in the couple of tweaks I'll be working on...
Rewrite of program to improve handling of callbacks.
