My Professional Gambling Story

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.

Book Gamblers Fight Back

Gamblers Fight Back
Greg Elder
Tate Publishing

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.

  1. This will likely be a fantastic internet web site, will you be involved in performing an interview regarding how you developed it? If so e-mail me! 755532

    • Thank you! Sure I’ll do that. Email me directly at

    • I know a person with bad logic?it goes like this, he prcticaed baccarat on and his technique works, he earned over 50k fake money and the dealers are real (8 decks of cards, hand shuffled and washed), but when he played at the casino he lost all his money.. now he is playing on dublinbet with a new strategy and is losing (fake money) but he continues trying to make a new strategy (again, old strategy works perfectly on Dublinbet but didn’t work at the casino) If strategies can be made, casino companies wouldn’t so huge! 8 deck Baccarat has been around for long enough, wouldn’t people figured it out if it was that easy?In this case, isn’t it logical to practice at the casino, by writing wins and losses down without betting? Now he’s trying to win at roulette ..What makes a person illogical? It kills me to see him like this!

      • You’re right Baccarat and Roulette can not be beat over the longterm. It is mathematically impossible. There are many “systems” out there that are all garbage. The casino has a fixed advantage against you in both of these games, doesn’t matter what system you use or how you change your bets, the odds remain the same, in the casino’s favor. Hope your friend listens to you. Thanks for sharing.

      • Wham bam thank you, ma’am, my questions are anwsered!
