    Although I make my living as a movie critic, a few editors have been spreading my name around in an effort to get me some more writing gigs. I was contacted by a very nice gentleman a few weeks ago, and he wanted some articles on casino gambling to post on his website.
    While I am quite familiar with the Atlantic City gaming tables, I in no way consider myself a gambling 'expert'. My three articles were posted today, and I'd love to get some feedback on them.
    The link is http://www.goldenstreet.com/ and you'll find my articles on the left-side bar. They're entitled 'The Bare Basics of Football Betting', 'Casino Etiquette 101' and 'Blackjack Tips Everyone in the Universe Should Know By Now'.
    Thanks!

    Great tips Scott! [​IMG]
    I read the blackjack and casino etiquette articles.
    I'm a casino junkie, I wish more people knew how to handle themselves when they're gambling.

    No other takers?
    Man, I thought you guys were my BUDDIES! [​IMG]
    I'm kidding. I got paid for these articles, so I suppose that should be satisfaction enough! [​IMG]

    Nice basics that a novice needs to know. As a more experienced gambler, I need more advice. Any more articles forthcoming?

    Having never played casino blackjack, the article seems pretty good, though it assumes you know more than I do, so the advice is mostly lost on me [​IMG]
    I went to a casino for the first time last Fall (Turning Stone Casino, 2 hrs east of Rochester. Visiting a friend, at a conference hosted there). Curious, I checked out a Blackjack table. Though I know the basics, I asked the dealer at an empty table to explain the rules. I was immediately lost in a dizzying assult of hand gestures, arcane card phrases, and betting options. I muttered "thanks" and walked away. I know better to play with money, on games I don't understand. [​IMG]
    I did play some video slots: boring! If I'm going to waste money on video-thingies, I'm going to play arcade games. At least they are interactive and have good gameplay.
    And that's the extent of my gambling knowledge.
