About the Author
Author Al W. Moe is a twenty-year veteran of the Nevada Gaming Industry. He writes articles for magazines and web sites like Casino Gambling at About.com and Examiner, and plays poker and blackjack in his spare time. Mr. Moe’s first book, Nevada’s Golden Age of Gambling, is considered a “classic” resource for photos and stories from the state’s first fifty years of legalized gambling, 1931-1981, and continues to sell-out at many bookstores.
