for an absolute beginner or for a seasoned gambler, this book is easy to understand and is full of useful tips. the book is written in a numbered order 1 - 1000, with the tips broken down into chapters or sections pertaining to each facet of the gaming industry. I found myself reading this book two times over trying to remember as many tips as I could. A must for any first time casino tripper!

Bought this book on the recommendation of Frank Schoebete (not sure this is the correct spelling of his last name), who is a gambling authority who said in his online newsletter column that this was one of, if not the only such type book he would recommend.

I find the publishing style in this very old-fashioned, boring, and just not very professional by today's standards. Some of the content is good, but the format becomes annoying. Not many true secrets here either, just well-known best practices. You could do worse, but you can definitely do better with another book.

This book was very easy to read. I was able to complete it before my trip to Vegas. I had never been in a Casino before and it covered all the different games and a basic strategy for each. I would have been completely lost stepping into a casino without reading this book first. I was able to play longer without losing a lot of money. It also gives tips on money management so we really had a good time without going away broke. I was still able to buy lots of souvenirs for my family. My girlfriend won $60 on a nickel slot machine. Our husbands tried playing the craps table and on 2 different days they started out with $5 and left the table with $100. Plus he lists other valuable resources to check out for more detailed information based on your favorite game. I highly recommend this book as an overview for first timers to Vegas. All the Do's and Don'ts were important as well. Thanks for an enjoyable Vegas experience!
