About This Course

Published 8/2015 English

Course Description

In Vegas and around the country millions of people a year pump their money into slot machines.

Did you know that the house edge on slot machines can be as high as 15%?

Did you also know that you can get the house edge on a Blackjack table down to 1/3%?

That means you 45 times more likely to win money at the Blackjack table than a slot machine.

This course is designed to take you through all the available table games, what the focus of each game is and how it compares to slot machine play. By the end of this course you will be able to walk into a Casino knowing which table game you want to play.

We'll cover:

  • Games of pure chance, like Roulette, Casino War and Baccarat
  • Games where you can make decisions that affect the house edge, like Blackjack, Three Card Poker and Craps
  • Other areas of the Casino like the poker room and the sports book
This is a comprehensive look at everything in the Casino outside of the slot machines. If you feel intimidated or unsure about these areas it's time to fix that.

Mark over @ TradeUp Today has put this course together along with several others to provide you with a full education on table play at Vegas Casinos as well as pretty much any Casino you walk into.

This course is a FREE course with great content on every game to help you decide which games you want to play. If you decide you want to learn a game in more detail check out our other courses on Udemy for specific games and their strategies.

Mark's main focus is on the basics. Teaching the basics to complete beginners is an art form and requires a lot of skill and analysis.
