You Want to Make Money as a Professional Gambler? Do These 10 Things.

Professional gambling is the ultimate dream of aspiring gamblers working dead-end, 9 to 5 jobs, that barely pay the bills. Dreams of riches by simply playing a game you love. What could be better?

Unfortunately, it’s not as easy as it sounds, but it is possible. There are many that gamble as their profession, and like every other profession there are some that are successful and some that are not. Gambling is unique in that there will be days when you do everything right and work very hard, but yet you come home with less money than when you left for work.  So think long and hard before you decide this is the right profession for you.

Here is a list of 10 things you need to do to be a pro gambler. 

1.  Decide which game is right for you. There are only certain games that can be beat in a casino. By beat I mean the odds are actually in your favor over the house. You have the advantage, also known as an advantage player. They are Blackjack, Video Poker, Poker, and Sports Gambling. Pick which one is right for you and read every piece of information available.

2.  Raise a Gambling Bankroll. One of the key indicators of a gambler’s rate of success is their bankroll. The more money, usually the greater chance of success. Read my E-Book “Make Money For Casino Gambling” to get tips on how to raise a bankroll and how to manage it once you’ve acquired one.

3. Use computer simulations and tutorials. Before you ever step foot in the casino, perfect your play using computer programs.

4. Start with low stakes. Once you’ve perfected your play on computer simulations, take it to the casino. You will quickly find out that real world play is much more difficult than when you are by yourself, so start with low money bets.

5. Scout for the best casinos. There are certain casinos that offer the most advantageous games for whatever game you are playing. Go to message forums, online sites, etc. to find the casinos that are right for your game selection. Once you’ve narrowed them down, visit them in person to make sure your research is correct.

6. Chart and document all of your play. Even when using simulations track your progress.

7. Make adjustments as necessary. You will make mistakes, but the key is to recognize those mistakes and correct them.

8. Manage your bankroll. Based on your success or lack there of, you will have to closely monitor your bankroll and make betting level adjustments as needed.

9. Find a mentor or advice from other professional gamblers. Gambling is a unique profession in a lot of ways, so no one can know what you are going through better than another professional gambler.

10. Keep learning. Things in the world of gambling are constantly changing. It’s not a profession where you learn a few things and you’re done. Situations change and if you do not stay on top of those changing situations you will be left behind.

These 10 guidelines will give you a general outline of what it takes to be a professional gambler. I thought about going into more detail about each step in an E-Book. Let me know your thoughts on whether or not this topic would make a good E-Book.

I almost forgot #11. Get a good psychologist. Losing streaks can be brutal.

About Greg Elder

I was 37 years old, a husband and father, a former teacher, college and high school basketball coach, and a business owner, I decided to give it all up (Not the husband and father part) to take a shot at pro gambling. I was coming off a job I hated selling insurance, and I vowed to do something I was passionate about. For the next year I would spend 12-15 hours a day researching, studying, and practicing advantage gambling techniques. The goal was to see if I could sustain our current lifestyle as a professional gambler. I wanted to find out if casinos really could be beat. At the time, I thought it may be the biggest mistake of my life, but my intentions were to have fun trying. It has been an interesting few years since that journey began. My feature book GAMBLERS FIGHT BACK has been released and can be purchased on my author site at I would consider my pro gambling career to be a success on all fronts. I didn't win millions of dollars, but I was able to enjoy every minute of it. It brought an excitement and passion back into my professional life. It has helped lead me to a writing career that I had no idea I even wanted before this challenge. I was able to write a book that shared with others exactly what I learned along the way.. Gambling professionally is not easy, but there are certain things the average gambler can do to increase their chances of success tremendously. That's the information I try to pass along to my readers.
