Steve Bourie, author of America’s #1 best-selling book on casino gambling and travel has a YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/americancasinoguide that recently surpassed the one million views mark.
Bourie, who hosts the educational “how to gamble” videos, says the most popular video is titled “Slot Machines – How to Win and How They Work.” “Slots are always the most popular game in the casino, so it’s not surprising that a video about slot machines would be the most watched. We have another one titled ‘Slot Machines – When to Bet Maximum Coins’ that people also seem to enjoy,” he says.
Besides teaching the best gambling strategies in his videos, Bourie also interviews numerous other gambling experts. “A few months ago I traveled to Seattle to interview the co-leader of a blackjack card counting team that won more than $3 million from casinos during the past few years,” he says. “He was especially interesting to interview because a documentary movie was made about the team’s exploits and we were able to include the trailer for that movie in our video.”
There are currently 26 videos on his channel and Bourie uploads a new one each month. He started out in 2006 by producing monthly audio podcasts that featured interviews with famous gambling experts, plus other noted casino personalities. The entire archive of 52 podcasts can be found on his web site at http://www.americancasinoguide.com/gambling-podcasts where some of the topics covered include: strategies for winning at slots, video poker, blackjack, craps, roulette and baccarat; saving money on Las Vegas trips; travel tips on visiting Reno/Lake Tahoe, Tunica, Biloxi and Atlantic City; how to become a professional gambler; maximizing casino comps; problem gambling awareness; plus much more.
“More than 54 million people visit a U.S. casino every year,” says Bourie. “Unfortunately, the vast majority of them are ‘clueless’ when it comes to using the best strategies!”
Bourie’s 496-page book, American Casino Guide, has been published annually since 1992 and is widely known for its detailed information on more than 700 U.S. casino/resorts, riverboats and Indian casinos in 40 states.
The book is especially popular with casino-goers because it also contains 198 valuable coupons that can save travelers more than $1,000 at some of America’s favorite casino resorts, including: Harrah’s, Argosy, Caesars Palace, Golden Nugget, Flamingo, Rio, Mirage and many more. A full list of all 198 casino coupons can be found on the book’s web site at http://www.americancasinoguide.com
The book retails in bookstores for $18.95, but it can be bought on the American Casino Guide web site for only $11.75. The book also sells for a similar price on Amazon.com. “At that highly discounted price if someone uses just one or two of the 198 coupons it’s like getting the book for free!” says Bourie.
