Book excerpt: “The runaway winner as the best overall gambling encyclopedia written in the past 20 years.”—Detroit Free Press Walk away from every casino a winner! Take it from Mensa, the society for people with high IQs: you don’t have to be a genius to triumph at the tables. Here’s the inside line on the games and bets that give the best advantage. Do you know whether to split a pair of aces in blackjack, which slot machines carry the worst payback for the player, and why losses are more significant at video than “live” keno? Beat the bank by understanding all this and more, including odds and probability, the “house edge,” money management, and gambling psychology. The chips will just pile up. The author lives in New York, NY.
