Give Yourself to a Great Holiday Treat!

20 November 2003

The Date is December 6. The Place is Isleta Casino Resort, Albuquerque, New Mexico. The Event is Frank Scoblete's Gamblers Jamboree with Jean Scott (Queen of the Comps, author of The Frugal Gambler), Dr. Henry Tamburin (best-selling author and blackjack expert), John Robison (video poker expert and author of The Slot Expert's Guide to Playing Slots), John Grochowski (gaming columnist for The Chicago Sun-Times and author of The Casino Answer Book), Bill Burton (author of Get the Edge at Low-Limit Texas Hold'em and gambling guide for About.com), and Dominator, one of the world's greatest dice controllers, with the Golden Touch Craps dice control crew of Billy "the Kid" Stansfield, Howard "Rock 'n Roller" Newman, Daryl "No Field Five" Henley, and Arman "Pit Boss" Pirim.

The Reason it is at Isleta Casino Resort?

Where's the best craps game in the West, Las Vegas? Where are the best double-deck blackjack games? Where are the loosest "certified" slots, the most generous comps, and an area rich in history, character, and beauty? Is it really Las Vegas?

No, it isn't.

Turn your attention to New Mexico, specifically to the Isleta Casino Resort, just outside Albuquerque, for the answers to my questions above. Isleta is the gamblers' paradise of the Western states. Here are just a few examples as to why:

Isleta Craps has 20X odds with low table minimums. You can buy the 4 and 10 and only pay the commission (vig) if you win. That reduces the house edge from 6.67 percent to 1.3 percent. What's more, and what's really startling for those who go to Vegas, you can buy the 5 and 9, paying the vig on a win, and cut that house edge from 4 percent to almost 1 percent! You can also buy these numbers for $30, paying a $1 commission on a win – a bet that has never been offered in Vegas.

In blackjack, there are no continuous shuffle machines to gouge you. Instead, Isleta blackjack offers the games that Vegas used to offer in the past – hand-pitched, double-deck, stand on soft 17, with good penetration and great rules on doubling and splitting.

Isleta slots are "certified" payback machines, many offering 99 percent returns – unheard of in Vegas!

What's more, Isleta has the philosophy that a good player is not the enemy of the casino but someone who will make a good long-term customer, a philosophy I share. To prove their belief that good players are to be courted not feared, Isleta is sponsoring my Jamboree on December 6 consisting of over a dozen seminars and hands-on instruction in blackjack basic strategy, card counting, tournament blackjack, craps basics, dice control, money management, video poker strategy, comp gathering and slot strategy with some of the world's greatest experts.

The cost of this great day is just $20. That's right. A mere $20 gains you entry to this first-ever players' event in New Mexico. In addition to the seminars, there will be contests, prizes, freebies, refreshments and the opportunity to meet the authors one-on-one and, of course, play in a casino with the best games in the West!

So why not give yourself a treat for the Holiday season – attend Frank Scoblete's Gamblers Jamboree at Isleta Casino Resort.

Frank Scoblete's Gamblers Jamboree Special is $158 (plus tax) and includes: 2 Night Stay at the Hilton Garden Hotel in Albuquerque, NM, just minutes from Isleta Casino Resort. Admission for (2) to the Jamboree on Sat. Dec. 6th Transportation from the hotel to Isleta Casino Resort and back and (2) complementary buffets (good for breakfast, lunch or dinner).

Call 505 244-8191 or 1-877-747-5382 and ask for the showroom box office. An attendant will take all the information needed including credit card number. They will make the hotel reservations for you and call back with the hotel confirmation number. Complimentary shuttle service will be offered to and from the Hilton Garden Hotel. It doesn't get much better than this for savvy casino players! (Isleta's website is: www.isleta-casino.com)

I hope to see you December 6 at Isleta. It will be a holiday treat for all of us attending!
