Do you like to gamble? So do I. And so do the estimated 50 million people
who set foot in U.S. casinos each year. In fact, Americans spend more
money on gambling than on all sports, movies, music, and even gentleman’s
clubs combined. Why? Because gambling is fun!
Gambling can be even more fun when you know what you’re doing. But learn-
ing how to do the right thing in a casino normally requires enormous intellec-
tual and emotional investments that most people simply aren’t willing to make.
Here’s a great example of a play that a novice gambler would normally make:
You see a $100 minimum blackjack game at a casino on the Strip in Las Vegas,
but the casino across the street is advertising a $10 minimum game. Obviously
the $10 game is cheaper to play, right? Wrong. In fact, you’ll lose less over time
by playing the $100 blackjack game if you know a basic strategy.
“How’s that?” you ask. The $10 game likely has terrible rules and terrible pay-
offs that cost the uninformed gambler about 25 cents a hand, while the high
roller’s game is set to make about 20 cents for every $100 you put in action.
And the bonus? When you play the high-dollar game, you also earn spectacu-
lar comps.
Which game should you play? That decision depends on your bankroll, your
stomach for action, and your availability to control passions on the game.
Understanding yourself and the house advantage on every game is the core
message in Casino Gambling For Dummies.
Kevin Blackwood is one of very few successful professional gamblers who
know how to write and teach recreational gamblers — in everyday, common
language. He shows how to evaluate the dizzying array of gambling games so
that you can lose less money and have more fun, all while you’re pursuing
this great pastime.
