Feel free to add your thoughts or experiences

Seems a lot of people i know think AP is illegal

Within the last day 2 people very familiar with what i do hav insinuated that

While discussing an Unfortunate coworker of mine who has become addicted to drugs my friend stated u never know if he gets arrested and tries to bargain with the police about what i do. To which i pointed put i do nothing illegal so whats to bargain with. Cops want to know of illegal activity not legal ap moves in a situation like that

Then later another friend said i am lucky ive never been arrested for all the shenanigans at the casino. Again i stated thats because i dont break any laws

She shrugged her shoulders and stated "you winning all this money at the casino has the stink of illegality"

So many people i come across have this perception that outsmarting the casino is inherently illegal

Mind you i have been backroomed a few times including in the same casino more than once and never have i ever been charged or arrested - because i commit no crimes. (Trust me one casino really tried to find something even calling the police who had to admit no crime was committed so come on)

Anyway just wondering how other AP friends and family feel. Does anyone else have this issue?

My brother in law after seeing the 21 movie said "I saw the movie about the MIT people who cheat the casinos like you do".
A few friends have asked if I wasn't afraid of being arrested for cheating.
It's definitely a misconception that the public has.Hell it's a misconception the casinos have also.
What we've got here is failure to communicate

Do you ever get accused of being a gambling addict?

You all need to get smarter friends and family (-:

I have yet to hear any of this from friends and family. Perhaps I am able to describe it in a way they understand.
9 out of 10 times they want to come help, so I they must not assume any of this.

Or they just want to help you cheat... :-)


The truth is, many or most people don't know all the laws in different circumstances. It's not that they are specifically naive when it comes to casinos / gambling laws & whatnot......but that they are just naive regarding laws in general.

Yes lol. Forgot about that too. Lots of people although not as much as those who think AP is illegal since those people see me winning money

In that case I should crack out the Way Way Beyond Counting book.

My comic book friends think I make my money playing blackjack. My blackjack friends think I make my money selling comics. Many an acquaintance has mentioned they know I'm in the drug game or money laundering.
Who cares?
It's what you do and not what you say If you're not part of the future then get out of the way
