2012 American Casino Guide

This month we have several blackjack reports, covering casinos in north Las Vegas (by KC Brooks), east of the Strip (by Stu D. Hoss), Atlantic City (Frank Scoblete, and Pennsylvania (by Mark Gruetze, who also updates the review of the blackjack rules by the Pennsylvania Gaming Commission). In addition, Ralph Stricker describes a trip his team took to the famed Monte Carlo casino, using concealed blackjack computers. Vinny DeCarlo completes his three part series on player scams, this month focusing on how cheating dice players use hollowed chip stacks to steal chips from casinos (check out the photos). Have you ever wondered about the characters that appear on playing cards (King, Queen, and Jack), specifically, the history behind them and why they were selected to be on the cards? Read Basil Nestor's article for the interesting facts. John Grochowski answers questions from players about renting a blackjack table, strategies for Quick Quad (video poker), and whether it makes a difference if you stop the spinning reels when you play slots (some slots machines have this feature). Frank Kneeland continues his series on the psychology of gambling, and Frank Scoblete describes how Golden Touch dice controller Skinny recently whacked the casinos in Atlantic City at craps with his amazing dice-control skills. Lastly, we have a summary of upcoming major blackjack tournaments around the country, courtesy of www.blackjacktournaments.com.

    UNCOVERING THE SECRET LIVES OF MODERN PLAYING CARDS by Basil Nestor

    "You notice their silent stares, especially when the game takes an unexpected turn. Two red queens watch stoically and with a hint of resignation as a low-rent trio of ten, six, and five beats them. The king of spades clutches his sword and seems filled with purpose when he's paired with a red ace; he subsequently obliterates a couple of defenseless red jacks..."
