Playboy Complete Guide to Casino Gamblingby Basil Nestor, LeRoy Neiman (Illustrator)
The pleasures of risk and reward are the essence of the Playboy experience. That’s why Playboy opened its first casino (one of many to sprout up over the years) in June 1966 as part of the first London Playboy Club. Now, Playboy is delighted to present its Complete Guide to Casino Gambling, a veritable Bible of the sporting life. Written by best-selling gambling author and Playboy contributor Basil Nestor, this book covers every major form of casino gambling, including classic card and dice games, sports betting, mechanical games such as video poker and slots, and even keno, bingo, and other types of lotteries. In his accessible, conversational style, Nestor delivers professional-quality strategies for winning every conceivable contest of chance.
Within these pages are odds for every game under the sun, a discussion of the most famous gambling “systems,” a guide to casino etiquette, hundreds of curious and useful facts and tips about gambling, and a fascinating portrait of how modern casinos really work. You'll also find hundreds of of sidebars containing curious and useful facts and tips about gambling.
For players who enjoy big competitions, there is an entire chapter devoted to gambling tournaments and special tournament strategies, and another chapter devoted to comps and comp tactics. For anyone who’s ever wondered what the tax implications of a major windfall are, there is a detailed discussion of jackpots and taxes. Finally, an extensive glossary includes descriptions of every term a player needs to know before stepping through the doors of a casino.
The Playboy Complete Guide to Casino Gambling is the most comprehensive book on the subject that has ever been published, and should be a constant companion of gamblers everywhere, from neophytes about to bet their first chips to experienced players who want to gain a valuable winning edge.
