Meet the Author

While working as an actuary for the Social Security Administration in the late '90s, Michael Shackleford compiled a list of the popular baby names to avoid choosing a trendy name for his own child. The baby names popularity lists took on a life of their own and since then have been published in dozens of newspapers, books, and magazines. At about the same time Shackleford created the baby name list, he also introduced his popular gambling Web site, Wizardofodds.com. This, too, took on a life of its own. In 2000 Shackleford left his government job to devote full time to the Web site and a consulting business for the gambling industry. Today he keeps busy with his web site analyzing new casino games for game inventors, designing slot machines, teaching a casino math class at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas, and serving as a consultant to land-based and Internet casinos around the world.
