SURVIVE THE CASINO AND HAVE FUN!

Casino gambling is the fastest growth industry in the U.S. As more and more states enact legalized gambling regulations in the pursuit of tax revenue, so there are more and more gamblers that are lured to casinos for entertainment and the chance to win big bucks. About 99 percent of gamblers lose money in the long run, unfortunately, and some become so addicted to gambling that they lose their homes, cars, friends and sometimes families. Dr. Crowder takes a look at the casino milieu, dangers and temptations lurking there, personality and emotional differences that impact gambling behavior, the effects of alcohol and prescribed and street drugs on gambling, how slot machines work, and the odds of winning and losing at available games. This is primarily a "How To" book: How to keep from losing your shirt, How to avoid crime and cheating, How to get your share of the billion or so dollars casinos give to gamblers each year, and How to play the most generous casino games.

"This, then, is my rule of thumb. It is a strategy to play the cycles and limit losses on any machine to eighty credits, on any table to twenty chips, to preserve gains, to let any gains run in a winning streak, and to satisfy my desire for variety and change."
