Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 5, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, February S, 1975 NIGHTLY LOUNGE ENTERTAINMENT HOTEL RANDY GLENN TAVERN BARBARA VARTY DUO HOIEL Odds favor gambler Blackjack game best bet VICTORIA (CP) A com- puter system analyst says the gambling casinos of -Nevada can be beaten with the right system. "There is one game at Las Vegas you can beat because the odds are on your side said Douglas Alexander, a senior programming analyst at the University of Victoria. "No system has been devis- ed that I know of that can beat a game like roulette or craps where the odds are against he said. "You may get lucky but eventually the casino will win. Blackjack is different. The odds change with every card that's played." Mr. Alexander began researching gambling systems with the aid of a com-. puter two years ago. Now he.has started a part time business with the forma- tion of D.A.'s Computer Casino Research Co. to assist other gamblers for a fee. 1 "Fees may run a couple of hundred dollars, depending upon the complexity of the system being he said. "But that's a lot cheaper than losing by testing the system at Las Vegas." The fee covers rental of the computer and costs of programming the system. The IBM 370 computer at UVIC costs an hour to rent. A programmed computer 'can deal out and score Blackjack hands in about 15 seconds. For hands, the computer would need just more than half an he said. The hands would give a fairly good'indication of long term probability and hands would give a reliable guide to whether the system figures to win most of the time. If the computer does meet a winning system, however, Mr. Alexander doesn't plan to write a book or publish the results. Every time someone puts out a book on how to beat Blackjack, the casinos change the rules, he said. 1 WEEK ONLY BUY WITH CONFIDENCE SATISFACTION GUARANTEED T ir ,-LJ Beauty Health Aids UP TO 188' u... 88< COSMETIC MIRRORS Assorted styles ELIZABETH POST COSMETICS Choose from blushers, eye shadows, lipsticks and powders...................

New news magazine planned TORONTO (CP) Maclean Hunter Ltd., Canada's largest publisher of national periodicals, has a Canadian owned weekly news magazine in the works, it was announc- ed here. Donald Hunter, chairman of Maclean Hunter, made the an- nouncement in connection with the publication of the Toronto based company's 1974 financial results. When the decision by the federal government to end special tax privileges for Time Canada and Canadian Reader's Digest becomes law, Maclean Hunter will "move toward" publishing a news weekly magazine "as soon as Mr. Hunter said. Net income for 1974, before extraordinary items, was or 65.5 cents a share compared with or 62.7 cents a share in 1973. Revenue increased to from in 1973. The 1974 figures exclude a writeoff of invest- ment in Global Com- munications Ltd., a writeoff of a new press and a loss in a write down by subsidiary Maclean Hunter Cable TV Ltd. This made final profit for 1974 of million or 51 cents a share. There were no special items the year before. Computer pay error protested BRISTOL, England (Reuter) Local government workers staged a one day strike here yesterday over a computer mix up that led to some not being paid and others receiving thousands of dollars. A union official cited cases in which a cafeteria worker received for a 30 hour week and a teacher had paid into her bank for a month's work. The workers are employed by Avon County, a new county formed by the merger of others last April. The union official blamed the mix up on insufficient computer time for handling wages of the county's bigger I staff. I "GOOD NEWS" MISSION POSSIBLE IN CHRIST EVERY THURSDAY P.M.
