The Future for Apple Watch isn't Bright in the Casino Gaming WorldAccording to a recent report from our sister site mGamingWatch, Apple Watch may be the hottest new wearable in town, but don’t expect it to get very far inside of your friendly neighborhood casino.

“A Blackjack Watch Counter” assists blackjack players in keeping count of the high and low cards already played in a deck. This gives them an advantage when playing blackjack.

According to CT News, the Apple Watch version of this app is a new take on similar apps for mobile phones. Now, users “can press buttons on their watch instead of their mobile device, making it more difficult to detect.”

But just as the “stealth mode” had to be pulled from the mobile app before iTunes permitted its presence, stealth mode is not available in the Apple Watch version of the app either.

Nonetheless, don’t expect casinos to take lightly or even grant access to gamblers wearing Apple Watches.
