Advantage Play For The Casino Executive

Advantage Play For The Casino Executive

Written to enlighten casino executives about what to look out for, Advantage Play for the Casino Executive is an A-category must-have for serious gamblers, too..

While some of the advanced information contained is too arcane for anyone but a seasoned pro, there’s plenty that will appeal to a broader audience. The introduction alone, which describes an incredibly creative blackjack play in Atlantic City, will be worth the price of the book for many. Zender also writes about biased roulette wheels, the debate about whether dice can be controlled with “rhythm rolling” (he’s dubious), and combining return percentages, cashback, and promotions to gain an edge at video poker (Jean Scott style).

For serious gamblers and members of the casino industry, the coverage, along with the supporting charts and tables (optimal hole-card strategy, correlation/combination betting, etc) is a treasure chest.

We must point out that book was not edited well and contains a lot of typos, which shouldn’t undermine your confidence in the information, and the spiral binding is flimsy (our review copy came apart). These are secondary considerations, however, to the overall strength of this work.
