Event description

Description

Rumit Somaiya has spent  the past 25 years touring casinos throughout the world with his team.  Their aim is simply to overcome the 'House Advantage' using all cerebral methods available, in order to amass fortunes.  Historically 'Blackjack', 'Pontoon' and '21' have been the games of choice. The most well known method is 'card counting' which is surprisingly easy to learn but many other legal methods of  'casino advantage play' will be discussed.

Rumit will also discuss other forms of gambling including 'Sports Betting', 'Fixed odds betting' and the national lottery.  Most people don't understand the maths of gambling and sadly addiction is a major issue.  The UK government largely distances itself from this issue as just like 'Alcohol’ and ’Nicotine’ the taxation revenues generated from gambling are huge.


Doors open at 6.30 pm for talk at 7.00 p.m

Please arrive early to enjoy a glass of wine from our charity wine bar and mingle.

All profits from the wine bar will go to help those with a gambling problem.

Please note, we charge a token entrance fee of £3 to help towards the hire of the venue and equipment.
