Frank Scoblete and John Robison to Speak at Sam's Town in Tunica on Saturday, May 20th!

18 May 2000

Gaming fans will want to mark Saturday, May 20th on their calendars because that's the day Sam's Town Hotel and Gambling Hall in Tunica, Mississippi (1-800-456-0711) hosts gaming's number one best-selling author, Frank Scoblete, and America's number one slot expert, John Robison, in a day of talks and seminars about casino gaming.

The day kicks off with a live radio show (The Goodtimes Show with Rudi Schiffer and Chris Wade) at Sam's Town from 8AM to 10AM that is open to the public. If you'd like to be a part of this show -- just show up and Frank and John will discuss gaming with you on the air. There will be prizes and comps given away throughout the show.

After the show Frank will autograph his books and talk about casino gaming personally with Sam's Town players.

In the afternoon, Frank Scoblete and John Robison will be giving gaming seminars on slots, video poker, blackjack, craps, roulette and other games.

In addition, attendees will get to meet and mingle with two other gaming personalities, Walter Thomason, author of the best-selling Twenty-First Century Blackjack: A New Strategy for a New Millennium and Alene Paone, publisher of Paone Press and writer of Just Ask AP, a syndicated gaming column. Both Thomason and Paone will be participating in the various activities planned the day as well.

States Scoblete: "I'm very excited about this event because it is rare when a casino invites gaming experts to talk to their players. Some casino executives have lived by the mantra 'the dumber our players, the better we like it.' But Sam's Town is breaking the mold in a daring way because they are saying to their Players' Club Card members, 'Hey, we're willing to give you the best shot at our money and to prove it, we'll help you attain the best possible information.'"

John Robison adds: "Frank and I are player advocates. We are going to tell it like it is. Sam's Town has placed no restrictions on what we can say, what advice we give the players. We can certainly help players make the right choices in games where their choices have an impact on their winning potential and we can steer players to better machines and better bets at games that have a variety of choices."

Scoblete continues: "We players go to the casinos primarily to gamble -- the shows, the fine dining, the special events are merely icing on the casino cake. If our gambling experiences are always negative, we won't be returning very often or at all. So the more the players know about the games and the machines, the better the players will do in the long run and the more loyal they will be to the individual properties who have afforded them good information on how to play the games. Loyal players also recommend those properties to their friends and relations. It's really a win-win situation for both the players and the property. So I salute Sam's Town for inviting John and me, and I look forward to meeting all their players."

Saturday, May 20th, the place to be is Sam's Town Hotel and Gambling Hall in Tunica. If you wish to stay at Sam's Town for this very special event just call toll free 1-800-456-0711 to make your room reservations.
