THE NATURE OF THE GAME

By Max Factor

The Nature of the Game is the super-title for an array of forthcoming companion e-books 
on selected games and gambling topics.

 

 

The Nature of the Game is the cornerstone technical document for this website.  The first book, Basic Odds provides the dedicated online reading.Other books may be periodically online as feature readings.   The Nature of The Game addresses the basic principles and practices of casino gambling from the ground up.  It provides an introduction for players who want the best performance they can reasonably get out of the money and time they have for gambling and gambling related activities.

 

It does not matter whether the player is budgeted for minimum stakes or for the higher betting levels; the basic formula for successful recreational gambling is the same in either case.That is have a solid grasp of every game played and otherwise know how to exploit the various opportunities the casinos make available for both a good time and a winning edge. The more the player knows about the games and how the casinos operate, the greater the range of potential opportunities.This e-book was chiefly written for beginners seeking exposure to the technical knowledge that expert recreational gambling requires.However, it may also interest the veteran gambler in search of a decent review and perhaps a few kernels of insight from a different perspective.

 

There is no guarantee that this or any other gambling book will make the reader a lifetime winner or even a regular winner.†† Just the same, as a minimum, it should help to squeeze some good mileage out of those gambling dollars and otherwise enhance the readerís insight about the world of casino gambling.
