Gambling advice

If you are a normal recreational punter, Smartgambler advises against gambling. The odds are stacked against you. Occasional recreation for affordable stakes is fine, but gambling must be recognised as a losing proposition unless you are prepared to research your chosen area or get information from experts.

Australians are gambling away somewhere in the vicinity of $20 billion per year, with massive poker machine losses leading the way. This is far too much! Gambling losses in Australia have risen much faster than inflation over the past decade, so we are betting more as the avenues for gambling increase. Clearly though, we are not betting smarter!

Professional poker players will hunt out weak players, or 'fish', to provide the best profits, so online poker AU sites with fish are in high demand. Casino gambling however, is conducted against a computer, so players normally look for big welcome bonuses and regular promotions.

If you do want to punt, Smartgambler will show you how to bet to win.

Smartgambler provides information that can improve your rate of return in your gaming pastime of choice or convince you to switch to a better value form of gaming. We provide mathematical comparisons of the different types of gambling with statistics, information and advice from our experts to help you do better.

Smartgambler features news, articles, useful gambling tools, special new account bonuses for punters and lively discussion on our popular gambling forums. Browse the menu, top left, to find the sections of most interest to you.

Smartgambler betting philosophy

This was nicely summed up by one of our first sports betting clients.

'Personally I adopt a gambling philosophy similar to that supported by blackjack expert Arnold Snyder. He calls it the Zen of Blackjack and it basically states that winning or losing is not important, in fact it's completely irrelevant. All that matters is making perfect bets and playing perfect hands, time after time after time.

Alternatively you could use the train of thought popular in sales, where they work the numbers and consider that every call is making them money, whether they get rejected or not. They know that over time, they'll earn x dollars per call, therefore every phone call is worth x dollars. Similarly, every positive expectation bet you make is earning you money, win or lose.'

Don Nguyen. April 2002.
