More On Gambling Systems – System Black Box

In my last article, “Gambling Systems” I talked about gambling systems that involved the actual physical aspects of the games such as the white ball in roulette and the dice in craps. Now I will deal with betting systems that can actually be used in any of the games, except poker.

With the advent of on-line casinos, a whole new world opened up that allowed anyone, anywhere, to gamble. With this phenomena also came a flood of on-line gambling systems. One of these is the very popular, “System Black Box” that capitalizes on the fact that some on-line casinos will offer free gambling “chips” to anyone that signs up with their casino for play. “System Black Box” is designed strictly for on-line casino play. While there are live casinos that have similar offers for free play, it is most often a “match-play” situation in which you must use some of your own money along with the free-play coupon. In other words the coupon is worth $1 if you also play a real dollar with it. Should you win that first bet, you then immediately bet the $2 that you just won, putting the newly acquired house money in play and taking back your $1 original bet. (The $1 coupon is taken, win or lose. It is only good for one play.) If you are considering gambling on-line with any of the games offered, I would encourage you to look into “System Black Box” as a possible tool.

Another very popular betting system is “Betting For Profit” and is also available on-line. The difference is that “Betting For Profit” can work with both on-line play and live play. This system is a bit more in depth and involves an increasing bet according to the last play you made. It is a very good system and also includes what the author calls his “Seven Cardinal Rules Of Gambling.” In “Betting For Profit” you learn how to treat gambling as a business, not as a recreational activity. It is a very realistic approach and can work if you follow the guidelines that are set forth in the method, which is what “Betting For Profit” is actually called. Both “System Black Box” and “Betting For Profit” are what I would call methods as opposed to systems as they both do not deal with the physical aspects of the games and concentrate on betting strategies. I have found, through my extensive experience that betting methods and strategies are really the only valid ways of creating a winning trend in casino gambling. I compare this type of method with playing the stock market, which is of course, just another type of gambling. With the stock market, when someone can double their money, it is a significant gain. With casino gambling, if you want to be successful, you must enter in to that kind of mentality. In “Betting For Profit” the author tells of ways to begin to treat gambling as a business and not as entertainment. This is how a professional gambler approaches gambling. To me, it is akin to guerrilla warfare and in fact must be followed if you are serious about winning. A professional gambler sees gambling as “going to work” instead of entertainment. To gamble professionally you must lose the kind of attitude that puts you at a casino game for fun. That is not to say that you cannot enjoy what you are doing. But you must remember that you are there to make money, not lose it while you are playing and entertaining yourself.

I short, I find that both “System Black Box” and even more so, “Betting For Profit” can actually work for the gambler. With “System Black Box” the player need not know a great deal about the game he or she is playing but must at least know the general rules of whatever game that might be. “Betting For Profit” assumes that the reader is aware of at least some good basic strategy for the chosen game. So the conclusion is that a betting method or procedure can be a valid tool to enable a player to win at casino gambling while the “system” type of play simply does not work and is not really valid. Let me repeat here that when I was working in the casino business, we used to laugh at system players and considered them no threat, while the smart, tough player that knew how to manage his or her money and was able to walk away a winner would more times than not, take a small bite every time that he or she played, and sometimes even a big bite!

The Pros And Cons Of Gambling

The existence of gambling cannot be hidden in any society. Whether laws allow it or not, gambling is present everywhere. It is also an open fact that there are two strong sides in society with regard to gambling. One side favors gambling and the other side opposes it. Those who favor it enjoy indulging in the game whether as a player or as a spectator. They enjoy it so much to the extent that it becomes a regular part of their routine. For those opposing gambling, it is more of a moral issue for them. For centuries, gambling has retained these two strong opposing sides. Each side puts up its own undefeated stand. No matter what their stand is, pro or con, gambling remains steadfast in man’s social environment. It is as deep-rooted as any other aspect of society. The following are some pros and cons of gambling:

Pros

1. Gambling is a money-generating game – The pro people believe the money they bet can bear fruit when the time is ripe for harvest.

2. It is a social game that strengthens friendship and relationships – A gambler has a wide array of friends he plays along with or with whom he shares his winnings and in whom he gets a share of their winnings.

3. Gambling is as good as any game – The rationale here is that it is a game just like any game. Hence, players and spectators indulge in it by betting just as players and cheerers are there in a ball game.

Cons

1. Gambling diverts ones finances – What should have been for the family table ends up in the gambling table. Those days one wins could not cover for the days the family hungered due to diversion of finances to gambling.

2. Gambling destroys the family – Families are neglected by a gambling mate. Call it addicting or habitual, gambling takes one away from the home.

3. Gambling is gambling – Gambling is not a conscience-free game. Moral issues come strongly with it unlike some games. For this side, the bettor does not play alone. Invisibly, he takes his family along with him. When he losses yet he leaves them behind when he is rooted in his game.

In whatever side of the issue, gambling is here to stay in society no matter what are its consequences on the player, bettor, or family. This is clearly for the sake of enjoyment and fun.
