I was a 37-year-old husband and father, a former teacher and basketball coach, and was selling insurance when I decided to give it all up (except the husband and father part) to become a professional gambler. The quest was to use gambling as my sole source of income for a year and the journey uncovered more than I could have ever imagined. No, I’m not a retired millionaire, but I was able to achieve my goals and more importantly loved every minute of it. It was a roller coaster ride for sure, but bottom line is I was able to make money off of the casinos while doing something I was passionate about.

I spent months researching anything involving casinos and the gambling industry. I used three positive expectation games to make money: Sports Gambling, Blackjack Card Counting, and Video Poker. Along the way I started this blog and unveiled another passion I never knew I had and that was writing. My journey led to my feature book Gamblers Fight Back that takes the reader along on my quest and shows them how to overcome the casino’s manipulation and give them the tools to increase their chance of success in the casino. While my feature book was being published I wrote several other gambling ebooks that are based on specific games such as blackjack, video poker, sports gambling, etc. These books are already on the market and available at Amazon, just type in my name Greg Elder.
The main reason for the book is to educate the average gambler. It was startling to uncover the tactics the casinos use to maximize their profits. People go to casinos to enjoy themselves and they end up spending their mortgage payment. I want to make people aware of these tactics and give them the opportunity to fight back.
I started this blog as a way to provide people with information to help them become smarter gamblers. Some parts of the blog will be used for the book, but the blog will continue to be updated with new information.
