About Casinos by E. Clifton Davis

Recommended Posts

The vast majority of players think casinos are their friend - that they are upstanding corporations - that the friendly and hospitable front they portray to the public is genuine. I've even seen posts on other forums that casinos would never risk their license by cheating. Naive players even ask dealers what to do - should I hit or stand? Bet Bank or Player? Not realizing that the dealers are taught to give them the answer most favorable to the casino.

The false front portrayed by casinos fools even the most intelligent people. Virtuoid at ImSpirit for instance - always sticking up for casinos, explaining away exorbitant and impossible casino profits.

They are right about one thing - casinos are corporations. I know corporations. I was raised by them. I went from the very bottom - the drafting board at G.E., to the very top - 30 Rock - 30 Rockerfeller Plaza, Ave of Flags, NYC.

When you work for the corporations you are not your own man. You are their man. To get ahead in them you must think like them, dress like them, live like them, eat like them, drink like them, and share their politics and probably die of an early heart attack like them. Three of my bosses died of heart attacks leaving me their jobs - which I gladly took BTW.

But then they sent me to Europe to build factories. There, I learned a whole new outlook on life. Corporations are NOT the center of your life. Your family is. The corporation is just a job - a way to get money to enjoy with your family. Nothing more. I quit the corporations and went on my own.

Casinos are corporations. They are NOT your friend. They are out to beat you any and every way they can - to show no mercy. Casino employees are trained to put on that public front - that overly friendly front.

Every player should be required to spend some time in the dealer coffee break room or at dealer bars like I did. There, you will quickly learn the truth. They freaking hate you. You are the enemy - the sucker. They brag about how they beat you - the tricks they used right under your nose. They have their own hierarchy. At the top are the dealers who win the most, the dealers who know how to slip the 5 when you hit 16, who can hit the 0 00 one out of 7. These guys not only know every trick in the book - they wrote the book. I know, I was there - complete with my dealer shirt on. I learned the truth of it.

Blackjack was rigged from the beginning. The rules clump the cards. Clumping beats Basic Strategy. That is why the dealer is taught to always give you the BS play. Casinos sell Basic Strategy cards and books for a reason.

Preshuffled cards in Baccarat are never actually shuffled at all. They are placed in set orders favorable to the casino. Regular cards are prepped to favor OTB4L because most players lose to OTB4L. The proof of it all is that casino profits far outweigh the odds of the game, whether BJ or Bac or Roulette.

How can they get away with this? Because they've got the fox guarding the hen house. Casino control commissions are NOT on your side. They are on the side that pays them - ultimately, the casinos.

That is what you are really up against.

So how can we possibly beat them?

We need to know how the game is rigged and how to use their own rigging against them. I spent thousands of hours in casinos and dealer bars learning exactly that.

Ultimately, that is what I teach!
