A WORD FROM HENRY

The buzz last month in Las Vegas was the 2015 Global Gaming Expo (G2E) that was held there, and we have two reports from BJI writers who attended this event (one by John Grochwski, the other by Stu D. Hoss). We also have a report on the new 2015 edition of American Casino Guide (hot off the presses) by Christine Bourie that contains a summary of all the money-saving coupons for blackjack (and video poker) players plus the list of great articles in the book. Vinny DeCarlo wrote a report about an experience he had working in casino surveillance early in his career in order to warn players about untrained casino security guards that legally carry weapons when they patrol the casino. We have three blackjack reports: one (by JPB) covers three casinos in Iowa (one with a great blackjack game), another (by KC Brooks) covers two casinos located on Boulder Highway in Las Vegas (you will be surprised to discover which one has the better blackjack game), and the third (by Frank Scoblete) covers the status of blackjack games in Atlantic City (including which casinos have closed or planning to close). Paul Wilson's column (Paul's Pointers) will get you thinking about the standards you have (or not have) on the blackjack games that you play. Frank Scoblete visited all of the (open) casinos in Atlantic City and asked employees what they thought about the employee layoffs and casinos closings there; read his report for the feedback he got. On the video poker front, Jerry "Stickman" explains the unique video poker game called "Shockwave," including a complete strategy for this game. Lastly, we have a summary of major blackjack tournaments being held in November and December, courtesy of blackjacktournaments.com.

Enjoy this issue! Have a Happy Thanksgiving,

Henry Tamburin
Editor
