A Mine of Information.
Fortunes are spent gambling and the usual winners are the bookmakers and casinos. This book is for anyone who ever places a bet and will provide all the information to improve your chances of success.
An introductory chapter explains what odds are for the layman and tells how to calculate your expected return. Chapters on horse racing, football pools, greyhound racing, sports betting, and casino games explain each type of bet and how to maximise your winnings. Games of skill are also covered in detail and further reading suggested for those who want to enter the big time in games such as Poker, Bridge and Backgammon.
The popular activities of those who don't regard themselves as "gamblers" are slot machines, bingo, lotteries and sweepstakes, but even here there is sound advice which you an follow, even if the opportunity to win in the long term is severely limited.
Finally the human side of gambling is covered, with information on cheats, hustlers and gambling addiction.
