The hustler plays for blood: he seldom gives another player a break because he believes that is no way to earn money at gambling. He usually knows where the favorable percentage lies in most private games of chance, such as Craps, and he makes the most of this by offering the occasional and habitual gamblers sucker odds, which, not knowing any better, they usually accept.
The professional gambler or gambling operator who earns his living, or most of it, by operating some gambling scheme. He is called a gambler because he runs a gambling operation, but he doesn't really gamble. He is a businessman or woman who runs a gambling operation and understands his trade, and either makes direct levies on the play or receives a percentage because the odds are in his favor.
The professional gambler, like the legitimate banker and insurance operator, acts as a middleman in risks which the players voluntarily take or wish to be rid of, charging a commission for the service. He is not betting against the players; they are actually betting against each other. His top aides are also in this category. The gambling cheat or crook who makes money by cheating at cards or dice, running a fake lottery or raffle, operating a fixed carnival game, punchboard, slot machine or any other gaffed crooked gambling device.
Also included in this category are any employees of a crooked gambling house or any participants in crooked schemes, whether or not they do the actual cheating themselves. The cheat's gamble is not so much in winning or losing as in whether or not he will get away with it. The gambling chiseler who is really only a petty crook and sneak thief.
He knows that he needs an edge to make money by gambling, and he gets it by inducing a friend at a racetrack or casino game to give or loan him money with which to gamble. He usually bets only part of the money and pockets the rest, and if he wins, he conceals all or part of the winnings. This is a favorite racket of women chiselers. In a Poker game the chiseler often forgets to put up his ante at his turn of play, and he is quick to grab any sleeper money belonging to another player which the latter has forgotten about.
He will borrow money during a private game and forget about paying it back. The chiseler -- and there are millions of these characters -- preys mostly on the habitual, chronic gambler. He is often caught, but that doesn't deter him, since he considers it an occupational hazard. The system gambler who lives in a dream world all his own, believing that it is only a question of time until he finds an infallible betting system which he can use to amass a fortune.
He is a perfect mark sucker for racetrack touts. He buys tips and most of the advertised systems, and although they fail, one after another, he buys more, always hoping to find the one that is perfect. The system horse player usually spends as much money on worthless tips and systems as he bets on the horses, and he wastes many hours trying to figure out a system of his own.
Illegal gambling flourishes in one form or another in every city and hamlet from coast to coast. It can escape the notice of police, district attorneys and politicians who are sworn to enforce the anti-gambling statutes in only one way.
This graft or protection money, known as ice, enables some police chiefs to own rows of apartment buildings and some county sheriffs to retire early to fancy estates in Florida. Illegal gambling will, I believe, continue to thrive in spite of whatever future investigations may be made by well-meaning Federal and state committees and in spite of any new laws that may be enacted in an attempt to suppress it.
From a technical and legal standpoint, the IRS regulation states "that a gambler's total yearly winnings must be included in his income. However, he is permitted to deduct his gambling losses incurred during the same year, but only to the amount of his winnings. To begin with, few gamblers and none that I know of keep a record of every bet they make during the year.
To further complicate matters, no legal casino, racetrack or legal gambling operation keeps records of an individual's gambling transactions -- especially those on a cash basis. Therefore, the matter of what to report is up to a gambler's conscience.
The same holds true for winners of state lotteries. From a practical standpoint there is only one game played in Nevada today where the Internal Revenue Service requires that a report be made of any sizable wins. This is Keno. Some of the Keno lounges, in fact, post a detailed schedule citing the size of the winning tickets that the casino must report to the IRS.
However, since no records were kept of these betting transactions, the player has no way of proving this except by his own statement -- which the IRS will not accept unless it is documented. At the racetrack such documentation is possible by evidence of losing bets. The player can produce losing tickets on horse races, Keno and lotteries, canceled checks to casinos, etc.
On the basis of the above information, we would have to conclude that anyone who plays the horses, buys lottery tickets, plays Keno, or gambles in Las Vegas, and intends to apply gambling losses against potential gambling winnings, better start keeping records of his gambling transactions -- the more comprehensive the records are the better. Because based on past performances, it's a sure bet that your word and undocumented records won't carry much weight with the Internal Revenue Service.
In concluding this first chapter I want to point out that this book, the first of its kind -- for gamblers of both sexes and covering all the major forms of gambling in America -- was not written to encourage gambling. You will see, as you read, that it does just the opposite. The more knowledge a person has about the mathematics and the inside workings of gambling the less likely he is to become a habitual gambler.
I firmly believe that if the gambling information in this book is read and studied by enough people it will do more to cut down the annual betting handle in this country than all the sermons that have ever been preached on the evils of gambling. The moral question aside, habitual gambling is still an undesirable economic activity. For any person who is already a habitual addict inoculated with gambling fever, I am convinced that the best medicine anyone could prescribe, the one most likely to cure the patient, would be a copy of this book.
This book contains the most extensive mathematical analysis of gambling ever written, and yet it can be read and clearly understood by anyone who knows simple arithmetic. This book is the first attempt in the history of gambling to correct the sucker or chump situation in all phases of gambling in America. It is the first book to tell what makes every gambling operation tick, and to give the up-to-date rules and methods of play of each gambling scheme.
It is the first book that explains how to gamble sensibly, that gives the player's best bet at each game and the adverse odds or percentages each player must buck at his favorite form of gambling, as well as the methods by which the player can detect those wily and affable crooks who try to cheat him, and thus avoid cheating himself.
You will also find here considerable evidence to prove that gambling against adverse odds is not one of the more trustworthy methods for reaching and staying on Easy Street. I'd like to read this book on Kindle Don't have a Kindle? Fearless and inspiring Discover Black voices on Audible.
