Welcome to:

Welcome to Without A Gun.  This is a true story about the casino industry and how they ruined the life between myself my daughter, and all those stupid enough to walk into a casino. 

Gambling is more addictive than heroine. I'll bet (sorry about the pun) many gamblers didn't even know that whether or not they leave a winner or looser is not determined by luck, but rather by those operating the games.  This is the story of how we did just that.

I confess that I was a casino dealer from 1984 through 1991, and that I helped to defraud innocent people out of their hard earned cash.  For that I am sorry.  But I make this up to you by telling you the story of how it is done, in the hopes that you will never walk into a casino ever again. It is also written for those traumatized from working in the casino industry, or those thinking about a career in the same.  To the latter I simply say, "don't do it".  

If you should ever come across a term you are not familiar with, you can find it by clicking on the glossary.
