Classification: Non-Fiction
Synopsis: In Casino Confidential, a veteran pit boss and dealer (who must remain anonymous) takes readers behind the scenes to show where casinos are most vulnerable—and which bets are simply a waste of money. Through chapters on blackjack, Texas hold ’em, roulette, craps, baccarat, slot machines, and more, readers will learn:
 
     •  Basic strategy for the most popular casino games
     •  Five keys to successful gambling
     •  Tips for identifying and maintaining positive streaks
     •  Advice on money and bankroll management
 
. . . and much more. Along the way, Anonymous shares examples and anecdotes gleaned from a career working as a pit boss and keeping high rollers under his thumb. You’ve been told again and again that the odds are stacked against players—but that doesn’t stop thousands of gamblers from winning big every day. Discover what they all have in common—and what the house doesn’t want you to know—in Casino Confidential.
