Home / About ShopLVA
Whether you’re a casual gambler who wants to make their vacation bankroll last longer, a seasoned pro looking to hone their game and pick up on the latest theories in advanced strategy, or a casino executive wanting to stay one step ahead of the advantage players, you’ll find all the products you need in our store. Most we published ourselves, but if there’s a great product that we recommend, you’ll find a link from our site to purchase it on Amazon.com, together with our explanation of why we think it’s worth buying.
We specialize in the beatable casino games — those with a positive Expected Value — which include blackjack, live poker, video poker, and race and sports betting. Our books, tutorial software, and strategy cards will help you find the best games and perfect your play to maximize your advantage. However, while this is our focus and what we’re famous for, we recognize that some people just want to have fun in the casino and are attracted to the other games — slots, craps, roulette, and so on — so we also sell those products that we know will help you to minimize your disadvantage and make your money last longer.
In addition to gambling how-tos, we also specialize in Las Vegas guide books, histories, biographies, and gambling stories, plus, we carry a small range of fiction, both gambling-based and otherwise.
A flat shipping rate of $7 applies to most products and orders being mailed within the U.S., but some items (including all our expert gambling-strategy cards) are free to ship, while other small items (including our acclaimed restaurant-guide trilogy, Eating Las Vegas, and several of our fiction titles), carry reduced-rate $3 shipping, when purchased individually. All orders with multiple items ship for the standard $7 rate within the U.S. Separate charges apply to orders shipped to Canada and all other International destinations -- the shipping rate will appear in your shopping cart before you finalize your order.
