Its Not Magic But

Often, when a magician is performing in a close-up situation, he will hear a layman say, "Boy, I sure wouldn't want to play cards with you." This comment is usually interpreted as a statement of admiration for the magician's card handling ability. I believe it is actually an expression of the spectator's heartfelt hope that he will never have to spend any major amount of time with the magician in a social situation.

However, if the subject of gambling (and especially Las Vegas) comes up in the conversion it would be a good thing to be able to speak knowledgeably on the subject. David Malek sent along a book which will allow you to do just that. It's called The 101 Most Asked Questions About Las Vegas and Casino Gambling and the author is George Joseph, Director of Surveillance for Bally Corporation and hand-mucker extraordinaire.

This is a very entertaining book, and in it you'll find the answers to questions which laymen will often ask you. For example: "Can the dealer make the ball land in any number they want on a roulette wheel?"; "Can slot machines be hot or cold?"; "Do casinos cheat customers?"; "What is the dead man' hand?"; "Do cheaters get beat up by casinos?; "What does 86'd mean?"; "What happens if the dealer makes a mistake?"; "What is the black book?"; "What is the eye in the sky?"; "What is the most money ever won or lost at a casino?"; and the most important question of all "Why is the carpet in most casinos so ugly?"

I liked this book a lot. It's an easy read, and if you go through it a few times you'll sound like you know what you're talking about if a layman asks you some gambling questions. You'll also find a lot patter possibilities as well. Check it out.
