Martin Adams is a single man that lives in a small East Texas town. He is an IT professional (information technology) – a computer expert. He works at four different banks by contract – three or four days a week. That is his first passion. His second passion is gambling on college and professional football. He started betting in the early 1980’s and has not stopped. Not only did he bet with bookies from his home, but he has been to Las Vegas many times in 20 years. He has bet at sports books in Vegas and played all the casino games. He finally quit going to Las Vegas and just concentrated on betting from his home. Some years he would win and some years he would lose. Martin fully explains the basics of football and betting. On opening day of the professional fooball season one year, he discovered an incredible secret advantage that enabled him to win any pro game he bet on. A secret so powerful, that he could not bet with any of his usual bookies – they would eventually cut off. His only choice was to return to the gambling capitols of the world – Las Vegas and Reno. He would increase his bets to the extent that could make him a multi-millionaire in one season. And that is what he did. What he did not know, that there were the many problems he would face with this choice. He also includes some history of Las Vegas, the dam, and how the ‘strip’ started. After several weeks, he got on the casino’s ‘black list’, because he always won. Due to the transparency of the Internet, he came to be known as ‘the man who never loses’. They could not figure it out. Word got out to casinos all over the state of Nevada. Consequently, he was banned from many casinos. He was accused of cheating and knowing the scores of games in advance (they were getting close). They would throw many roadblocks in his way, but he was able to sidestep them almost every time, due to disguising himself and the help of his friends, who would make his bets. Early in the season, he met Sara at a casino in Las Vegas. Sara, was visiting Vegas with her friends and actually lived in a town about 60 miles from Martin’s home in East Texas. They became friendly. Eventually this friendship grew into love. Sara changed Martin’s life completely. After several weeks of his friends betting for him, he discovered a method of making himself virtually invisible to the casinos. By doing this, he could return to betting himself. Every time he went, he used this method to hide himself. But, he still ran into some problems. As the weeks went by and the play-offs started, betting and collecting became easier. He took his advantage and Sara all the way to the final game of the year – the biggest betting day of the year for Las Vegas. Football was now over and Martin started having withdrawal symtoms, just like he did every year after the last game. But he knew football would start again in six months. Martin and Sara got married the next week-end. They now live at Martin’s home in East Texas. Martin continues to gamble on football games, but without his advantage. He finally figured out why and how this all happened.

“Interesting Book, Good Read”
Five Star Review on Amazon by R. Taylor
I really enjoyed reading this book. This book is one of those kind that once you get started, you don’t want to quit reading. It only covers one football season & I’d like to read a sequel, now that the main character is married & has sworn that he won’t go back to Nevada (I think that he will go back!). This had a good story line and I found the gambling advice/information interesting, even though I rarely gamble. Next time, I’ll try playing blackjack, based on your advice. Everything was explained in easy-to-understand verbiage. Reading about the inter-workings of the bookies (both legal & illegal) was interesting, too.
About the Author
I am a computer tech by trade, but I love to gamble on football games. Sometimes I win and sometimes I lose. Las Vegas – been there done that. Actually I have been more than 30 times. I came home a winner 3 times. It finally dawned on me that all those beautiful buildings were not built from people coming home winners. What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas – especially your money. It is a nice place to visit though if you are not going to gamble. My book is about a computer tech that is an avid football gambler. He discovers an incredible advantage at the start of a pro football season. An advantage so powerful, he could win any pro game he bet on. So he took his advantage to Nevada where sport betting is legal. What he didn’t know were the surprises that were waiting for him. Some good some bad.
