Tips For The Vacationing Las Vegas Gambler
Casinos don't cheat, because they don't
have to. Statistics are in favor of the house; it is not in favor of the player, because the longer a gambler plays, the more

term, he/she should still look for games with the lowest house edge. The house constantly takes away a gambler's money.
The higher the house edge, the less time a gambler's money will last. The longer a gambler's money lasts the more
chance he/she has to win.
