How I Beat the Casinos


I know right away that they are going to work on this and immediately go into their tirades about how I am talking about, how I am trying to scam people, and how they are quite. Certainly there is no way to beat the casinos. Do you know those people? I do. They are, simply put, the losers. I am not saying that in a personal sense. I mean it literally. They are the recreational or habitual gamblers. And you must consider this; While they are convinced that there is no way to beat the casinos, they continue to play! Like I said, losers.

I play because I know there is a way to stay ahead of the casinos. Now that makes so much sense, doesn’t it? And for those who argue that there is no way to win, in a sense, they are right. There is no way to win them over. They will continue to lose their habits and methods and go right, and then tell me link vào cmd368 that I can’t win. Well I don’t use those same methods and losing behaviors that cause me to be among the losers. So I let them carry and I laugh at them. I laugh because I don’t really want to convince anyone of anything. I know what I know and those who choose to listen to me will also become winners. Those that do not listen, and those that ridicule me and argue against my methods and ideas, will continue to be losers. With that said, let me give you a little background …

My father was a gambler for as long as I can remember. He was what I would call a habitual gambler. He bet on everything; Horses, cards, dice, sports, anything and everything. Of course, he also lost everything. That is what a habitual gambler does. I want to add here, if only to ease my conscience, that he was a good man, just a bad gambler. Growing up in the environment and with that exposure to the gambling world, it was easy for me to see what a losing gambler was, but it was not until much later in life that I actually took note of it. As luck would have it, our family moved to Las Vegas from upstate New York in 1973. (It is ironic that I use the word “luck” here.) Not a good place for my father to live! Well, of course, I learned a lot about all the casino games. My father was more than happy to show me all of them, and he was very good at them, so I learned a lot. And I learned how to lose. The most gamblers I have ever been around have lost. It didn’t take me too long to realize that I was going to do well in that town if I continued to gamble, so I decided instead to go into the casino business. I started out as a lowly craps dealer and learned to deal with some of the other games along the way, blackjack and roulette.

It didn’t take me too long to move up and become a boxman, floorman, pit boss, and eventually assistant shift manager. So, what I saw, for 10 years running, was that people gambled and lost money. I saw it every day. Of course by this time, I knew all about the house advantage, all the odds in the games, and I became an expert in casino gambling. This is where I could spot a card counter as soon as they walked in. I was good. What I did differently than most of my co-workers was that I was not the only one who studied, but I studied. I studied what makes a loser and what makes a winner. There are very few winners I have seen though. And I also noted that the winners were never as conspicuous as the losers. That actually became a very interesting point. The winners were rarely around long enough for you to notice and they were quiet and deliberate. I have to say that in all my time in the pit, I have seen this rare breed of gambler, the winner. They are tough to spot. Most people would not even notice them.

Needless to say, I started with the “Betting For Profit” method of keeping track of what I was seeing and beginning to formulate. I didn’t want to call it “a system” because systems simply don’t work. In my time in the casinos, I probably saw every system out there, in every game. There were little note pads with roulette players, scribbling down numbers furiously every roll, blackjack in card counters, craps in the dice-setters. Do you know what we did when we saw a system player? We laughed! Casinos love system players. Let me say this right now and get it over with. Anyone that tries to convince you that they have a winning system in any of the games is scamming you, or simply delusional. I see, especially on the internet, many “systems” to beat roulette, blackjack, craps, etc … They are all useless. Even card counting in blackjack is highly overrated. I know, I have tried it and it is not only overrated but a lot of work! And the card counting of advantages are completely nullified by frequent shuffling, which is exactly how we used to deal with them. Take it from the one who really knows the poker.
