The Real Story Behind Trump's Casino Empire

By Ketty Fisher

Long before he was a presidential candidate or hosted a reality game show, Donald Trump was seen as the savior of Atlantic City because of his plans to reinvigorate the hotel and casino scene. Now, almost 30 years later, some of his behavior and decision-making during this period has been at the center of criticism for his presidential bid. Despite Donald Trump taking a front sit in the Republican nominee candidacy, betting sites do not predict that he will be the party’s nominee.

How to Maximize your Slot Payouts

By John Grochowski

The first question on any slot machine player’s mind is, “How do I win?” The question evolves with experienced players who think about it a little. They wonder, “Maybe I can’t always win, but how to I maximize my paybacks?

How People try to Cheat in Casinos

By Louis Wheeler

Casinos generate nearly $70 billion in revenue every year. Take a second to think about that. Not $70 million, and not $7 billion… $70 billion dollars.

Since they push so much money, it’s hardly surprising that casinos are targeted by scammers who think they’re smart enough to cheat the system. However, very few people are actually able to beat the odds. Worldwide Casino Consulting estimates that fewer than 0.1% of the revenue casinos generate makes its way back to scammers. The few that do scam casinos almost always get caught.

Casino Security Exposed: An Inside Look

casino security

Ocean’s Eleven was one of the biggest grossing movies of the 21st century, and while most patrons went to watch George Clooney, Matt Damon and Julia Roberts, it left plenty of others wondering what security is really like in large casinos.

Is it really possible to rob a casino? A very small number of heisters have gotten away with it, but casino robberies are much harder to pull off these days. Since casinos have such a huge amount of money on hand, they - naturally - have very strict security protocols to make it very difficult for crooks to rob them.

Presidential Betting: A Look Ahead to 2016

By Louis Wheeler

Considering the Internet has been mainstream for around 20 years, US presidential races have been going on for 226 years and wagering has been commonplace since Eve hedged her bets on an apple in the Garden of Eden, it’s not surprising online political betting has exploded in popularity across the cyber universe in the last few years. In fact, it’s actually more surprising that it took this long.

Online poker made its first strides in popularity in conjunction with ESPN airing the World Series of Poker in 2003. It took another 10 years for sites like DraftKings.com and FanDuel.com to show the average mainstream sports fan that they needn’t be located in Las Vegas or wait until the office pool in March to make everyday games on television a little more interesting. Perhaps it was just the timing of the presidential election, but it seems likely that 2016 will be known as the year online betting on politics went mainstream.

Top 8 Reasons Why Most Blackjack Players Lose

By Henry Tamburin PH.D.

Why is it that most blackjack players lose at a casino game that is beatable? It’s because they often make some or all of the following common mistakes.


MISTAKE 1: NOT CHECKING THE PLAYING RULES
Most players just plop themselves down at the first open blackjack seat that they spot. That is often a big mistake because not all blackjack games are created equal. Some games have a good mix of player-favorable rules, like the dealer stands on soft 17, and you can double down after pair splitting, while others have terrible rules, like a player blackjack pays 6-5, or doubling is restricted to 10 or 11 only.
