I am a big shot

3 October 2017
I am usually pretty humble — no, seriously, I am. I had humble origins and I appreciate the value of hard work in achieving anything. In the years where my writing has allowed me some notoriety, I have received hundreds of requests to meet people at casinos or to go out to dinner with them. I’ve rarely ever done either. ...

Alone or Together?

26 September 2017
Most days and nights casinos go from crowded to packed, as in crowded like a subway car just before rush hour or almost as packed as Times Square on New Year’s Eve. You hear people talking, laughing, cheering and, yes, moaning. High fives are exchanged at the craps tables and jackpot winning slot players can be heard as their screams howl through the casino air. ... (read more)
 

How to be a good dealer

19 September 2017
If you think it is easy being a casino dealer then just give it a try. The public can be a real pain in the “you-know-what” in all situations but in a casino, losing money, the player-public can be downright nasty. Nasty players blame the dealers for bad luck, scold other players for making the “wrong” decisions, and generally make a nuisance or worse of themselves. ... (read more)
 

Hidden dangers and hidden pleasures

12 September 2017
There is math galore in casino games. The mathematics is the reason why and how casinos have the edge over the players. There are money management systems galore too – just about all players manage their money in some way or other, even if it is just to throw it away. But there are hidden dangers in casino games – germane hidden dangers at that; and there are hidden pleasures as well. ... (read more)
 

Home or away

5 September 2017
Do you enjoy going to a casino-hotel for a couple of days or for a vacation? Or do you prefer to drive (or walk) to a local casino and return home after your session is finished? And what about playing on the internet? Are you a fan of sitting in your own home and gambling on the games? JIM: I don’t want to drive to and from a casino on the same day. ... (read more)
 

The unvarnished truth

29 August 2017
All players want to win. When I tell someone that I hate losing, that someone will laugh and say, “I hate losing too.” I’ve never had anyone say, “I love losing.” Since almost all casino gamblers face losing expectations, why do they play? Good question. Casino gambling has certain truths that are about as true as true can be in a world where truth is often a lost commodity. ... (read more)
 

One and done

22 August 2017
Most craps players enjoy making multiple bets; in fact, many make some good low-house-edge bets (the pass line and come) mixed with some bad high-house-edge bets (the hard ways bets and many others). The average craps player is, usually more, sometimes less, an action player, looking for hits during every roll of the dice. ... (read more)
 

The look, the voice, the truth

15 August 2017
When I mention to people that I am a writer and I often write about gambling and casinos, I will get “the look” from some of them. “The look” incorporates a scrunched-up forehead, a slight involuntary sneer, a tilt of the head often followed by the words, “Oh, you’re a gambler?” The tone of the question is ...

The craps debate

8 August 2017
There are two extremes when it comes to craps players. The first is the player who lets it all hang out, making every conceivable bet no matter how high the house edge. The second is the player who makes only the best bets at craps and ignores those high house edge bets. I brought two of them together to see what they would say to each other. ... (read more)
