For decades, casino gaming has been steadily increasing in popularity worldwide. Blackjack is among the most popular of the casino table games, one where astute choices of playing strategy can create an advantage for the player. RISK AND REWARD analyzes the game in depth, pinpointing not just its optimal strategies but also its financial performance, in terms of both expected cash flow and associated risk. The book begins by describing the strategies and their performance in a clear, straightforward style. The presentation is self-contained, non-mathematical, and accessible to readers at all levels of playing skill, from the novice to the blackjack expert. Careful attention is also given to simplified, but still nearly optimal strategies that are easier to use in a casino. Unlike other books in the literature the author then derives each aspect of the strategy mathematically, to justify its claim to optimality. The derivations mostly use algebra and calculus, although some require more advanced analysis detailed in supporting appendices. For easy comprehension, formulae are translated into tables and graphs through extensive computation. This book will appeal to everyone interested in blackjack: those with mathematical training intrigued by its application to this popular game as well as all players seeking to improve their performance.

Written by a lawyer and an economist, Governing Fortune summarizes the legal framework supporting the gaming industry and reviews the costs and benefits of casinos by showing how tax base and job growth vary widely with site-specific factors. The book sets forth an innovative proposal for the licensing of gamblers as a means to balance the liberty interests of individuals against the social costs generated from problem gambling behavior. Morse and Goss offer both regional and sector comparisons of the gaming industry and accessible data about every aspect of the gaming environment, including the impact of gambling on economic and social environments. "Goss and Morse provide an outstandingly sound economic understanding of the function and place of casinos in American society, including essential heretofore unavailable grounding in the legal issues that the book accomplishes remarkably effectively. Moreover, this wealth of economic and legal information is transmitted in an engaging and readable manner. Scholarly, thoughtfully collected and authoritative, the book is of interest to any learner of the gambling industry, including students, civic activists, legislators, and scholars." — Earl Grinols, Baylor University "In this book, Morse and Goss make important contributions to our understanding of the negative outcomes of the expansion of gambling in America." — Jon Bruning, Nebraska Attorney General Edward A. Morse is Professor of Law and holder of the McGrath North Mullin & Kratz Endowed Chair in Business Law at Creighton University School of Law. Ernest P.

Since the emergence of the internet in the 1990s, an increasing number of gambling services have come available on-line or through other new remote communications technologies. The rapid technological advancements, commercial initiatives, and market penetration of such commerce have made this sector of the gambling services industries extremely dynamic and potentially transformative in the years ahead. Demand for gambling services in the early 21 century and for the past half-century in the European Union – as well as in most other parts of the world – has been and is expanding rapidly, for a number of reasons. The commercial and government owned gaming industries of the European Union are organized under a wide variety of ownership regimes and market structures. Ownership and market structures are affected by numerous factors, including Member State laws and regulations; restrictions on product types, characteristics, points of sale, availability, and marketing effort; economies of scale; network effects; and impacts of new technologies. The overall gambling market in Europe is growing, both land-based and online. Lotteries and gambling machines remain the biggest sectors in the overall gambling market. While not all EU Member States have a legal definition of the concepts of “games of chance” and of “gambling”, in most jurisdictions a game of chance is defined as a game that offers an opportunity to compete for prizes, where success depends completely or predominantly on coincidence or an unknown future result and cannot be influenced by the player. At least one of the players loses his or her stake. The first important element characterising a game of chance is that of stake money or monetary value. The second essential characteristic of a game of chance is the element of chance. Success or loss must depend completely or predominantly on coincidence and not on abilities and knowledge. Success is considered to depend in any case on coincidence, if the relevant aspect is the occurrence of an uncertain event. The section Gambling in Europe includes several independent adaptations of the corresponding European Commission works, free to use and freely available via the EU website with © European Union, and translation of the European Commission works with © Nico9lae Sfetcu, the author of this book. Most of the work are published by the European Union during 2004 - 2008, so it is possible to be outdated.

New Casino Strategies for the New Millennium
Inhaltsangabe:Introduction: In this thesis, I will strive to understand how German companies can be successful in post-Communist Bulgaria and why they might want to move their operations to Bulgaria. The central objective of this thesis is to assess the post-Communist business environment for German companies in Bulgaria. Hence, I will closely examine the present legal and economical environment of Bulgaria and will demonstrate the realm of opportunities this country has to offer to Western European entrepreneurs. Indeed the thesis can be presented that: German companies may avoid the disadvantages of globalisation by moving operations to Bulgaria. In order to highlight certain possibilities and achievements I will refer to German companies, which have already successfully built up operations in Bulgaria. One way to successfully analyse a certain industry, country or region is by applying a SWOT analysis. Especially the transition countries in Eastern Europe are interesting to analyse, because the region is faced with many opportunities as well as threats to the changing process. Consequently, reference will be made to the theoretical framework of a SWOT analysis. The SWOT analysis provides a broad overview of the situation of a country and should, therefore, be applied on the transforming countries such as Bulgaria. Further I will also deal with the question of Foreign Direct Investment, its main motives and Bulgarian legal framework. Before I begin to analyse Bulgaria s present economical, social and political situation, however, I believe it is necessary to provide a brief historical overview of the period, which preceded the imposition of communism, along with the performance of the Communist regime and its legacy. This seems especially vital since the Communist period shaped and controlled Bulgarian society for well over 40 years. As Emil Giatzidis states in his book An introduction to post-Communist Bulgaria: Political, economic and social transformation Communist regimes had no civil society since Communist society was totally patronised and controlled by a party that was equivalent to the state. Therefore, in all cases of former Communist countries special attention should be given to the issue of economic consolidation, since, as Giatzidis further argues the implementation of programmes to stabilise and more fundamentally to reform economies have posed formidable political challenges that have implications that go well beyond their [...]
