"The Virgin Kiss," the story of Frank's outrageous adventures in and out of the casinos.
Frank grew up in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, New York. He graduated from Our Lady of Angels grammar school. He attended St. John's Prep high school on a full athletic scholarship for baseball and basketball.
Switching directions, Frank attended college on a full, academic scholarship. In college, Frank boxed ("I was pummeled in my last fight. I have no memory of the last seven minutes.") and wrote for the school paper. He majored in history, literature and philosophy.
In 1975, Frank decided to try his hand at acting ("I've always been a ham!"). In 1979, Frank co-founded a professional touring troupe that played dinner theatres, resorts, and charities. From 1979 until he sold his share of the company in 1989, Frank produced, directed and acted in over 50 plays.
In 1986, Frank was researching the lead role for the hit play, The Only Game in Town - the story of a down-and-out gambler in Las Vegas. His co-star was Alene Paone. They went to Atlantic City to research their roles. "I was hooked. I began to realize that I enjoyed the casinos even more than I enjoyed working in the theatre." Alene and Frank toured in the play for four months, fell in love, and married.
In 1989, Frank sold his share of the theatre company and began his career as a gaming writer with articles and short stories for Win Magazine. In the 1990s Frank became a columnist for Casino Player Magazine and Midwest Gaming and Travel.
With the phenomenal success of his first book published in 1991 - which has subsequently become the best-selling craps book of all time - Frank began a successful climb to the top of the gaming mountain. He is now the most well known, respected and sought-after gaming writer and speaker in the country.
He has appeared frequently on television including the History Channel, A&E where his dice control team defeated three casinos in unedited action, also the Travel Channel, CNN, TBS, and the National Geographic Channel, among others. Frank has done hundreds of radio shows throughout the country.

He has also done "Frank Scoblete's Gamblers Jamborees" at many hotels across the country.
He has given talks at bookstores throughout the country, and also at libraries, charitable organizations, at fund-raising activities and at the Learning Anex.
Frank has been a regular contributor and columnist for over 50 magazines and newspapers in America, Canada, and the Islands. He is widely syndicated on the internet.

The Speed Count, used as suggested, captures about 75% of the accuracy of more complicated counting systems. It is very simple. It is the first system I've been able to execute in a casino and actually use, after having read many books on counting methods over the past 5 years. The system lets you know when to increase your bet and when a shoe has gone so bad south that you should actually stop playing. I would encourage you to buy this book and learn the method, if like me, you are interested in playing more profitably but don't have the time or inclination to spend 100+ hours learning hi-lo or another counting method. I'm not a pro--I visit local casinos every couple months. This system works for players like me.
I learned Speed Count, the counting method in this book, in about 5 hours and in the 6 months I have used Speed Count I have won some huge amounts of money!
I have tried other counting methods but I couldn't walk into a casino and use them becasue I didn't feel confident in them becasue they were so hard to learn. As the author states, "a 12 year old can learn Speed Count" and it is true. It is so simple to learn!
A must for anyone that wants to beat blackjack by learning card counting which is the only way to beat blackjack, and wants to learn card counting in an easy and simple way!
