Overview

Las Vegas' Scammers, Schemers and Dreamers is a behind the scenes, inside look at life in another world: The Casino. What goes on in this world within a world? How do people really act? What does it take to get escorted out and told not to come back? What does it take to have the police or the Gaming Commission called?

My very first call from Surveillance came on my second day on the job. I was informed that a customer (for lack of a printable word) pulled out hair from his arm and put it on his eggs. After I was convinced this was not a joke, I became shocked, angry, and curious all at the same time. I couldn't believe someone would do this to get out of paying for their $1.99 Steak & Eggs special.

My normal thinking for the past twenty years had been I wonder if we'll have any problems today. A very short time later, it changed to I wonder how many we'll have today.

The stories you're about to read couldn't possibly be made up. They were written with a sarcastic and humorous tone. Because if I took them to heart, you would be visiting me at the "home." You'll also read stories about gambling problems, including my own, which are not so funny. That's the reason I need you to buy this book. I just might be able to break even.

I can almost guarantee that you too are going to be shocked and amazed at human behavior in a casino. I can also almost guarantee that if you have even the slightest sense of humor, you'll be laughing and enjoying this book.

    LAS VEGAS' SCAMMERS, SCHEMERS & DREAMERS is revealing, enter

    LAS VEGAS' SCAMMERS, SCHEMERS & DREAMERS is revealing, entertaining, humorousing (it needed an ing), enlightening, sometimes saddening, and a bunch of other ings....way too many to mention. The relaxed style of writing was very refreshing. I could almost hear him pounding his fists on that podium...see the smile on his face when he caught the little nose picker...felt his joy in giving the Texan those dishes...and laughed right alongside him when he made his wise@ss comments to unsuspecting customers. You could feel the emotions the author felt jump right off the pages. If you've never been to Las Vegas, this book will make you want to go. Just remember to take it with you.... I don't think Casino 101 will educate you like this book does
