$20.00
I'm looking for a shuffling machine that takes the cards you put in and shuffles them over and over until you decide to stop.

The shufflers I have seen all shuffle once and then stop. I would like to have the cards shuffled continuously (I don't mean the special re-randomization by that, just what it means literally) for as long as I keep the machine going.

Is there a product like that? I'm not concerned with the cleverness of the randomness, just that it keeps shuffling.

Splitting the deck into two parts is likely the reason why card shufflers only shuffle one time. It requires human intervention to split the cards for another shuffle.

A shuffler that could do that would likely be very expensive due to the added mechanics of handling the cards other than shuffling.

Here is one on Amazon that appears to do what you are seeking. it is $700 however.

What you're after isn't considered a desired feature since all it does is increase wear on the cards.

You might be able to rewire a cheap shuffler to loop until it's powered off.

Vegas doesn't need to do this. Just curious, why do you? Seems like a lot of wear and tear on the cards...

I have a friend like that. He mechanically mangles my cards until I tell him to stop.

Once you have got to 'sufficiently randomised' you are done. 10 minutes of shuffling later, you are still at 'sufficiently randomised' - what's the point?

As I said in the original post, I'm not concerned about randomization.

I have seen shuffling machines that reform the deck, but I have not been able to find much information about them. It's not a very complicated device. Has anyone seen one?

The *only* purpose to shuffling a deck many multiple times (or continuously for some time period, which amounts to the same thing) is to increase randomness.

If you're not concerned about randomization, what is your point?

So... Will you share why you're looking for it? I know I'm very curious, that's for sure

Why does it have to have a point? Maybe he just wants to see if its available and thought it would be cool to have such a device.. Ever see the "useless box" they sell amazon.com and ThinkGeek.com? You flip a switch and a lever or hand extends and switches it back. Its literally named the "useless box", but people still buy them..

Then THAT RIGHT THERR would be the point.
But OP hasn't said it.

(BTW I'm super curious too.)

If you want to vapidly troll, may I suggest posting in YouTube or Reddit forums instead? You'll find a much more receptive audience.

I have a manual shuffler and I usually put the cards through it 3-4 times to ensure a good mix. It would be cool to have one that kept going without having to move the cards back to the top.

Has everyone just completely ignored the post with a link to the very device the OP was asking about? It's literally the first response and answered the question.

I'm really confused why you think people ignored it. There's no need to repost it or take other action about it. Anyone else on this thread probably doesn't want the device, especially with the price tag.

Yes, it's called "YOUR HANDS".
It (usually) comes with 10 fingers included.

That makes sense what you said. You want a good mix. People were only asking because he specifically said he doesn't care about randomization, which is strange for a card shuffler. People asked why he would want one then, and instead of answering or saying politely, "It's none of your business" he decided to be rude. We are all curious as to why you would want a $700 shuffler if you don't care about shuffling the cards.

No, I didn't. This thread is obviously not for you!
