Description: As a rule of thumb, the harder a game is to understand the better your odds of winning if you do understand it. By understanding the more complicated games such as blackjack, baccarat, and craps you can have an expected return of at about 99 cents per dollar bet. There is no easy way to beat the casinos consistently but it isn't hard to have almost a break even chance. If you consider the value of the fun, you will be coming out ahead by playing the right games in an intelligent manner over the long run, trusting in math and not on hunches or luck. Includes general gambling tips, specific game instructions, and miscellaneous other items.
