Free Gambling Book Giveaway

I know I haven’t paid much attention to this blog for the past year, but that’s because I have been busy building and improving a slot blog I own. I announced a free gambling book giveaway at about a week ago and figured since this is a gambling blog, you might be interested.

It’s a new book called “Gamblers Fight Back” written by a friend of mine Greg Elder. I’ll be giving away 1 pre-release copy of the book for an author of a blog comment at 777click, the second pre-release copy will go to a newsletter subscriber.

The idea of the book is to give gamblers the tools they need to counter all the dirty tactics many casinos employ to get you to spend more money at their venues than you might be comfortable with. In some cases you can even come out on top by using techniques commonly practiced by professional gamblers. Who else has the authority to speak about these matters than a professional gambler Greg Elder himself who went to Vegas with the sole purpose of becoming a professional gambler and support his family by gambling for a year. You’ll know more about his adventures as well as techniques he has picked up by reading his book. He also runs a professional gambling blog, so you might want to take a look at that instead, if reading a full book is too much for you. I do hope I can get Greg to write for WGB as well.

Synopsis of “Gamblers Fight Back”

After reading a book about a guy who gave up everything, moved to Las Vegas to become a professional gambler with only $6,000 to his name, and went on to become a millionaire, Greg Elder’s mission was set. For the next year, he decided to support his wife and daughter as a professional gambler. He wasn’t exactly sure HOW he was going to do this, but he couldn’t wait to get started.

The odds moved slowly in Greg’s favor as he discovered the method to making professional gambling a career. Over the course of 12 months, he became an expert on the world of casinos. He investigated everything from the most beneficial tactics to the psychological warfare that is used to deter unsuspecting gamblers. In the midst of this, he discovered a new purpose for himself, one that allowed him to do what he loved without losing himself along the way.

Be prepared to have your eyes opened and your perspectives broadened as you follow Greg’s journey through the busts, folds, and jackpots of being a professional gambler.

This book will show you the methods used to defeat the casinos. You will learn the step-by-step practical techniques Greg used to put the odds in his favor over the casino. Also, you will be exposed to all the tactics used by the casino industry to get people to spend more money than they intend. Decide for yourself if these methods are simply good business practices to maximize profits, or dirty attempts to manipulate people into uncontrollable emotional choices.

The book will be officially released at Amazon on March 12. 2013 but if you want to get a pre-release copy now for free, check out the giveaway details at The competition is really weak because I have failed to spread the word around properly so you have a really good chance of winning the book. For example if you were to make 2 comments or subscribe to a newsletter, you would have 50% chance of winning the book, do both and you will have 50% chance of walking away with 2 books and 75% chance of winning 1 book.

Get Your Hands On An iPad 2 For The Best Online Casino Experience

If you’ve used an iPad 2, you’ll know just how fun they can be to play with, but it can be hard to figure out just exactly what you can use one for. Sure you can browse the web on it, check your email and read the Guardian with a flick of the wrist, but if you really want to get the most out of one, I recommend downloading a compatible online casino and seeing for yourself what a massive difference it makes.

To be honest, initially I was a little skeptical about the whole iPad obsession, but then my friend thrust one into my hand with a live game of Texas Hold ‘em on the go and told me to play. That was it, I was hooked. The controls were just so intuitive and responsive as my fingers skated across the screen, raising, checking and folding. The other online casino games I tried as a result, were just as good, if not even better! Roulette was just a dream, I couldn’t believe how fun it was, watching the wheel spin beneath my nose and tapping the screen to place my bet. However it really got impressive, when I explored the slots section of the online casino and started playing Immortal Romance slots. As I tapped spin and watched the reels blur, the graphics exploded out of the screen and the cash started rolling in. It was almost like the iPad was bringing me luck!
