How to Beat the Casino: Pro Gambler Martin Butterick

martin butter eggs joining us he was a
professional gambler for ten years the also ran a professional gambling t
martin i get tons of emails about casinos about gambling about the ethics
of both running a casino and of being eight ambler uh… i don’t even know
where to start but i think a good good good places uh… off are there certain
casino games where the advantage for the casino is is minimized or is it is it
basically the same across the board ’em with craps uh… if you bet on the correct uh… combination tibet’s there you can
get the the houses advantage down almost to zero so when you were a professional gambler
what were you what were your games we would primarily play blackjack um… that is the one game where the player can get an advantage over the
house uh… and so that was the game that we focused
on okay so explain that because i think
black jack in the emails i get is the one people most seem to think that by using a system where using a
method error that there is a way to get an advantage over the house and i don’t
understand it because my my understanding is if you type the house you actually lose your bet so
how did how can you take that back mathematically and get the edge back okay well there’s a lot there’s a lot of
information to to answer that question there in a nutshell the reason the blackjack
is different than all the other games is back the outcome of the next hand is partially determined by the outcome
of the last chance and the reason for that is because the
cards that we have there were dealt out during the last
count are no longer available soaker plan from a sixty x u you play a few hands some cards are gone now there’s kind of a different that you’re playing with uh… as
opposed to the one that would be hella six-fold accent and there are certain situations then
where uh… the advantage goes over to the
player because of the the composition of the deck remaining okay so is this are we getting basically
into the idea of card counting keeping track of the cards that have been dealt and kind of keeping a mental tally of of
what’s what’s still left there or not is that where you getting up with this yeah that’s the most common way to use that that information uh… is
through car coming uh… it’s kind of the easiest way it’s
the more reliable way but nowadays it’s the one that the
casinos are also the most familiar with so it’s kind of a double-edged sword there okay so how does that work uh… in
other words number one what do you really counting when you are
a card counting accounting face cards and also uh… why why is that not
allowed and how is it in forcible especial sewing card-carrying basically what
you’re doing is your counting the ratio of high cards too low cards and so as low cards come out of the debt and the deck becomes more you know kind
of more weighted towards those tenzin aces uh… the advantage shifts over to the player and the other way around if if the kisses start coming out in
greater proportion and there’s more to little cards left then the houses advantage tends to go up um… no reason i guess the reason the car
coming is not allowed because these casinos are private businesses and they have the
right dislike any private business to refuse service for a customer uh… thirty forty years ago they might have for a new in jail upper kar counting now
it is that’s not going to happen but but they will ask you just not to play
blackjack and and applied to play together games in the
casino so as casino security has gotten more
sophisticated over time powell what what’s the easiest way to
spot someone who is card counting i mean is that someone who looks pensive there
has to be more to it than that right oh absolutely got really there are way
more sophisticated now than they used to be uh… they’ve gotten down to the thing
that matters the most this when a player is raising his best that’s how hard counter is going to get
his advantage because uh… me you’re not going to have the
advantage in the majority of hands it’s going to
be a minority of times when you have that opportunity and so to make up for all of the hands where
you’re playing in a disadvantage you need to be able to bat a lot more when that opportunity arises so with that you know with uh… admin of computers in and automated
software casinos are now able to just wrap a
person’s betting and see what the advantages that they have on each hand
and kind of evaluate them that way okay and has this done so in order to do
that does that mean everything and that is being dealt every players activities
being tracked by some kind of software or is
it more the dealers sense of what’s going on in may be getting their
supervisor involved it’s a kind of over see what’s happening i would say that it’s more the latter it’s more likely
that the floor supervisor is going to select
the individuals that he wants security to kind of focus on but usually it’s going to be the highest
betters but it could be somebody that if if the
form and notices some uh… some behavior that looks like a
car counter yet bearing bats when when slow cards are gone and stuff like that then they could focus on that person
because just too much going on for it because he has to pay attention to
everyone so let’s get to the the the next
question which is our their so-called systems that are straightforward that do
work for someone who says this is my sister for example oftentimes
people say well here’s my system uh… with blackjack it’s close to fifty
fifty so this is this is what i’m told i mean so what i do is i’d make one bad and then if i lose i doubled the bat for the next ten and then if i were lose our double the bat and then eventually i’m going to win i’m
going to win big are now i tried the math on that anything really seem to
work out to me i mean how does that sound to you and are there the so-called
systems that the kind of amateur gambler can utilize in the long run none of those types of
systems will work so this type of system what it does is
it allows you supposed to win uh… a lot of the time usually it’s a
small when uh… but then upon occasion you’ll lose nine bets in a row and if you’re in a few went from ten to
twenty two forty eight to eighty to one sixty and up from there and pretty soon
you’re at two thousand three thousand hand or the table limit and you just can’t
you can recover from it that-that’s exactly be the uh… the
numbers that i came up with so in in the last thing in your experience it hard
casinos and let the best left to just for fun that is it really just a
place to stay away from a few real goals is to make money you know i mean if you’re real if you
will go lawyers said try and make money gambling you need to either you’ll learn
how to count cards at what work you know one of the other methods that are better would generally will legitimately give you an advantage
other games like poker for where you’re playing against other opponents are
definitely beatable uh… sports betting if you’re really good and you can make some money there as
well it’s difficult because the houses edge is pretty big bear but other than that i think it’s just best saying okay if
i’m gonna go to vegas and i’ve got this much money in a file is it that’s fine and if i win that’s great i
had a good weekend yeah i think uh… i’m glad my producer
took that line of thought a couple years ago he just uh… said you know what i’m
his losing every single time um… i think i’m done with it of martin butterick out for a former
professional gambler rank and wing team of really great to speak with you today

  1. My dad used to be a pit boss at the casinos up here in Tahoe and his comment was "go ahead, use your method" because the average person isn't good enough at doing math in their head to make any more money than they they are statisticly entitled to and the people who have a system tend to bet a whole lot more confidently and therefore drop MORE money in the casino than people who don't believe they have an advantage.

  2. If you have a "system" or even "paranormal ability" which allows you to win consistently over the long run, the casino will simply not allow you to play! There is only one game that you can win money at over the long run that the casino does not care and will let you play, an that game is poker. The casino takes a rake of each pot, and after that, has no stake in which players win or lose. Any game where the casino has a stake in your wins or losses, u will lose or be banned if u win.

  3. I just spent $3500 at the casino and won't get paid for two weeks. Now we have no money in our bank account HOW DO I STOP MY WIFE FROM FINDING OUT?

  6. the best money u make in cassinos goes back 2 cassinos THE BEST WAYtoBEAT cassinos is dont go 2 cassinos do smthing else u will wake up happier

  7. I beat the casino by playing Roulette with No Zero, so the casino has no advantage. Just found out by reading Curious Roulette Blog:

  8. Funny almost every damn time or 99% of the time all the Professional gamblers r either Poker players or 21. I know ppl who does well at EZ Baccarat or regular Baccarat. I think that's where the pro should be at. If u can beat a dumb ass coin flip guessing game u r the real pro.

  9. Yes there are beatable games.  Blackjack with card counting and sports betting are 2 big ones.  Dice control (craps) is controversial but if you believe that people can control a pair of dice the same way a trick pool player controls a cue ball with backspin then this is possible.  It would take incredible physical skill and would be just as difficult as counting cards, if not even more so.  Roulette Bias is the simplest way to gain an advantage but you must get a minimum of about 4,000 spins to detect it.  30,000 spins would be preferable.  The amount of man hours it would take to detect a bias wheel puts it out of reach for virtually any gambler.  The bottom line is if you want to make it rich as a pro gambler it is possible but it is not a walk in the park.  It is not easy money and requires months if not years before you are even ready to begin using your skills.

  11. Failed gambler Qian Di occupied the guesthouse and extorted $3000 (World Journal post)

    An evil tenant blackmailed money from the guesthouse and escaped

    Qian Di, a milldle-aged Chinese man who rented a bed from a guesthouse on the Ash Avenue and Bowne Street in the Flushing Town, ecently told the police that his landlord try to drive out him illegally with a variety of harsh means, such as locked the door and throw him baggages. However, the landlord Mr.Sun said, their dispute is due to Qian Di owed huge gambling debts, and can not to borrow money from him, then, called the police. Through the police intervention, the two sides finally reconciliated—-Qian Di moved out of the guesthouse recently with hundreds dollars whice the landlord lended him, and leave a letter to landlord for a debt note.

    The tenant Qian Di complained that his landlord Sun drives all tenants while hearsay the City Department of Buildings will examine to come. Mr.Sun locked the door repeatedly, and throwed his refrigerator foods and some daily necessities because he refused to move out. Mr.Sun even attempted to throw his trunk to the street.

    In view of this complaint, Mr.Sun said, "This tenant was arrested by the attack crime not long ago. He has no money after the release. I let him live here by my kindness. Also I advised him to mend his ways."

    Mr.Sun pointed out that cause of comflict is Qian Di indulged in gambling. "On the 20th of last month, Qian Di told me that he lost the payment for goods of his boss in the gambling. He was afraid that he might lose his job if he doesn't return the payment to his boss. Therefore he asked me to loan $1000. I didn't lend money to him yet. Soon after, I learned that he sold his house that he got from the divorce case. He also borrowed money from many people and has not returned to them."

    "He didn't pay the rental to me because I didn't lend money to him. He declared this guesthouse is illegal. He will not only to stay living here, but also will report to the government. He threatened to make my guesthouse close. In this case, I decided to close the guesthouse, and persuaded other residents move away. Unexpectedly, he began to engage in sabotage, such as damaged the electric rice cooker, and pried the doors, and smashed locks.He was using violence and intimidation. He spited in my face, and shaked his fist in front of me. Therefore We dare not enter here again."

    Regarding the case which Qian Di complainted his landlord changed the lock, Mr.Sun pointed out that Qian Di knew the law requires that the police can arrest the landlord who changes the lock without authorization. Thus Qian Di use it as an excuse to climbed from the escape stairs to the 4th floor and came into the window. Mr.Sun explained that he would not change the lock originally, but he changed it later because of Qian Di crammed the toothpick in the lock.

    Mr.Sun stressed, "I did not throw his luggage. Qian Di has no money to buy foods now. A few days ago, He ask me to borrow $3000, at least $2500. He said that he will leave at once, as soon as he gets the money. Finally I gave him $700. He, then, moved out on Tuesday morning, and wrote an apology letter to me. This matter was end."

    Mr.Sun pointed out that there are thousands of guesthouses in New York. Tens of thousands of Chinese landlords sublet beds for the migrant workers. The beds subletting of the guesthouses are illegal, but they provide some conveniences for many Chinese immigrants who are low-income, and work for a living, or even to send money to home. The guesthouses reduce their living costs, and help the government to solve some social problems.
