Casinos have been in existence since the 1700’s, during the early years of the United States. In small, scattered towns, casinos were established to give those weary travelers and townsfolk a form of recreation and a way to earn some money from what they were willing to wager.
Throughout the eyars since then, casinos became more organized. They got bigger. They started serving better food. They developed a more efficient dealer system. And the money that was laid down on hte table, and consequently, the money lost by players, grew into eye-popping amounts.
Hence, many States banned gambling from their territories. Nevada, for instance, received so many complaints of broken families, ruined careers, unpaid loans, and the like as a result of the many gambling establishments in their area, that in 1910, they had to put a stoppage to the gambling industry that had sustained their desert county.
Operations resumed in 1930, but business was slow then, and casinos were never the same flourishing business that they were before their initial cessation. Part of this was due to the Great Depression that struck the land. Even when the economic effects of the period settled down, Mafia money found its way into the casino circuit, placing in doubt the credibility of the gambling system and effectively keeping people away from the tables.
That is, until 1962, when a scholar named Edward Thorp publihsed a book entitled Beat The Dealer, where her outlined specific and verifiable strategies on how to win, and how to win big, at the casino tables.
The centerpiece of his book was the game of Blackjack. And all the revelations he mentioned in its pages compelled people to troop back to the casinos. The rest, as they say, is history.
Take a look at Las Vegas today.
Take a look at Nevada.
Take a look at all the progressive states in the world.
What’s common in all of them? That’s right. They all have a burgeoning casino industry. And they owe a lot of gratitue to Mr. Thorp and his then revolutionary book. The strategies therein, surprisingly, can still be employed with great efficiency today. Try to get a hold of a copy, if you still can.
As you can see, however, Blackjack is a very popular game in every casino. It can even be argued that Blackjack is probably the most popular game of chance there is, at least, when there is betting involved.
Blackjack, probabilitywise, is the most winnable game of chance there is, ba none. It is a great entry level game for beginners, and it is also a great pot filling option for veterans whenever the Baccarat table or the Roulette wheel ahs depleted most of their resources.
