Overview


Peter Griffin, renowned gambling mathematician and author of
The Theory of Blackjack, has explored the mathematics of gambling for more than two decades. Extra Stuff is a collection of his most famous magazine articles and papers.

Extra Stuff addresses many of gambling’s abstract concepts—proportional wagering, considerations for games with variable payoffs, the effects of rebates on losses—as well as more mainstream subjects, such as the casino’s treatment of hold percentages and analyses of gambling systems. You’ll also find book reviews, quizzes, letters to the editors of gambling periodicals—a virtual kitchen-sink-full of gambling information found nowhere else.

Extra Stuff: Gambling Ramblings is packed with mathematics, but Griffin’s easy style accommodates most readers. Gamblers of all levels of experience will come away with an enhanced understanding of casino games.
