Gambling Description

An introductory chapter explains what odds are for the layman and tells how to calculate your expected return. Chapters on horse racing, football pools, greyhound racing, sports betting, and casino games explain each type of bet and how to maximise your winnings. Games of skill are also covered in detail and further reading suggested for those who want to enter the big time in games such as Poker, Bridge and backgammon. The popular activities of those who don't regard themselves as "gamblers" are slot machines, bingo, lotteries and sweepstakes, but even here there is sound advice which the reader can follow, even if the opportunity to win in the long term is severely limited. Finally the human side of gambling such as cheats, hustlers and gambling addition will bring back to earth everyone who thinks betting has a "sexy" image.
