    No, it works other times too. In short;

    The fewer decks;
    The less cards left before they reshuffle the decks;

    The more feasible it is. You aren't likely to make much money doing this anymore though.

    You need to know something about probabilities, or at least read a book by someone who does and has developed an easy method that others can follow. The method is basically that you bet low when the odds are not in your favor and bet high when the odds are. The expected value comes out in your favor.

    BTW, I know someone who does this and he says he makes about $10 to $15 an hour on average in most casinos. He tried this in Vegas though and got burned.
