Format: Hardcover
Other reviewers have questioned the credibility of Soares as an author. I found him cocky and sure of himself, but wouldn't you have to be, to scam mobsters running casinos out of thousands of dollars? Soares justifies his cheating because these were the days when the casino was just as happy to cheat the customer if need be, before heavy gaming regulations. In fact, he started his life in the casinos as a crooked dealer, employed by the casino to bring down a player's winning streak if necessary.

The tricks described herein relate to old reel-style machines and the days when you only had to fool the casino floorpeople, not the omnipresent "eye in the sky" video camera. Some of what Soares describes in his craps games could still be employed today, but it would be awfully risky.

This is a fun read, and it might be embellished, but I enjoyed the glimpse inside a lifetime's worth of scams nonetheless.
