Play Games for a Living

Horse racing tipster services and other similar games get a lot of opposition because of the stigma associated with gambling. When done legitimately and for the right reasons, gambling can be a career option. If you decide to get into gambling professionally, you can enjoy a wide industry, frequent travel, high rewards, and the satisfaction of playing games for work.

A Wide Industry

Not a lot of industries afford a variety of possible job opportunities. You can be a footy tipster or a professional poker player once you decide you want to gamble for a living. You can also reside in known gaming places like Las Vegas and enjoy the lifestyle that comes with your profession.

The gambling profession is not just confined to the people who like playing card games. You can also work in places such as casinos and racetracks. For more flexibility, you can even choose your own productivity hours, work online, and work from home if you please.

Play for Work

Professional gambling may be a legitimate career path but it is still playing. People do better in their jobs when they enjoy what they do. If you have a knack for gambling and the talent for it, you can make significant profit.

Despite the nature of gambling, it still requires skill to be successful. Depending on the game you want to be part of, there is strategizing involved. If you go into the betting business, there is research and analysing trends involved. There is actual work involved apart from playing.

See the World

As a footy tipster, there is an element of going where the game is. You get the chance to travel and see the sights while you wait for the game to begin. The same is true in other card games and such. Sometimes, known opponents would like home advantages and you get to experience how people from other cultures play the game.

A lot of networking is involved with gambling for professionals. Sometimes, before you can be allowed to play on certain tables and make high stakes bets, you have to know which hands to shake. Meeting important people in your industry can also lead you to travel so many places.

Big Rewards

A down side to gambling is the possibility of losing money and going in to debt. Professional gamblers have limited chances of this happening. They know how the industry works and exactly how to avoid wiping out their bank accounts.

The 10 Commandments of Casino Gambling

My name is Ray W. and I have spent the past 40 years studying and playing every form of gambling/betting systems in existence. From the time I walked into my first pool hall at the age of 16 I’ve been fascinated with every aspect of it. I guess that makes me somewhat of an expert, if there really is such a thing. It’s not just me that’s fascinated though.

According to government statistics, 86% of Americans have reported gambling on something in the past 12 months. Approximately only 1/3 of the population consists of non-bettors. They state that 46% of adults gamble in casinos and seven out of ten frequent non-casino gambling. The primary source of which is horse racing, sports betting, state lotteries and online or private card games.

48 states have some form of legalized gambling with only Utah and Hawaii being the only two that do not. There are currently 13 states that have legalized commercial state sponsored casinos with a total of 443 of these establishments. The combined gross revenue for these 443 casinos was $30.74 billion annually.
The numbers are truly staggering.

Although I, like so many others, derive a great deal of enjoyment from it, any type of gambling that risks a person losing enough money to affect their standard of living (or that of their family) is self-destructive and should be avoided at all costs. I have personally watched a man lose his entire aluminum siding business overnight during a ridiculously extended session of heads-up gin rummy. Hard to believe, I know.

My attraction to gambling and casino table games in particular, is rooted in a deep desire to win every time I play. There is nothing compulsive about my approach to casino gambling. In fact, I do everything I can to take as much of the gamble out of it as possible.

The winning approach consists of only playing games that have no more than a 2% house advantage (Craps .60%, Baccarat 1.25%, Roulette 2.6% on even-money wagers and Blackjack, even money depending on the use of expert “Basic Strategy”) and rigorous adherence to an iron-clad set of precepts which are the “golden rules” or The 10 Commandments as I like to call them.

1. Never gamble when tired or depressed.

2. Never gamble with more than you can comfortably afford to lose.

3. Do Not drink alcohol before or during gambling sessions. It is the chloroform the casinos provide to separate the player from their money.

4. Keep playing sessions short.

5. Always preset a definite bankroll for gambling and Do Not exceed that amount.

6. If you are feeling “negative” about your surroundings (the table, dealers, other players or if in a losing cycle) stop betting and leave the table. The tables will still be there when your mood changes.

7. Avoid playing without a clear plan of action (betting strategy, min./max. wagers).

8. Do Not increase the size of your bets when losing. Increase wagers only when winning. This will limit losses and let winnings run up.

9. Know that the battle is not between you and the casino… it is between you and you alone. Always maintain your self-discipline.

10. Always quit when winning.

Winning consistently at these four casino table games is not that difficult. I do it all the time. There are playing and betting strategies that I believe shifts the advantage from the “house” to the player in any given short session of play.

The above 10 rules of gambling have been handed down to me by the most astute professional gamblers I have known over the years. They are essential to intelligent and consistent winning. Anyone who is not able to follow these rules has no business in a casino gambling with real money.

Life, like gambling, is a constant battle with the unknown. If you knew what the outcome would be in advance it would take all the fun out of it.

“The serious gambler is a man who is at war with chance. In the casino there is, whether he wins or loses, certainty… he consults the table, which speaks to him through the dice, as the Greeks consulted the oracles, and the oracle rewards him by telling him now, not next week or next year, whether the choices he makes are right or wrong.”

– William Pearson
“The Muses of Ruin”

Best of luck,
Ray W.
