Baccarat, more than any other game, invokes mythological thinking and illusory pattern perception. Casinos do their best to reinforce this mythology by using electronic display boards that show various “roads.” The roads and other data on these boards are meant to instill confidence in the player, to help him see a pattern. Once a player believes there is a pattern, he will likely wager more. These boards are also faster and cheaper than traditional hand scoring.

If you’re looking for me after my retirement from the casino world, here I am.
I am available for expert witness services for gaming and casino related legal cases. I am also available for selective free consulting, interviews and public speaking.
In this blog, I will be sharing some of the odd tidbits in my archive from my days in the casino industry. I may create some new stuff along the way, so stay tuned!
