There has been a lot of discussion pro and con about whether I'm to blame for ruining the Revel "You Can't Lose" promotion by analyzing and writing about it. It is argued that some things are too good to tell everybody and are better left to the fortunate ones who find out about such things anyway. Others argue that it is unlikely this small forum could affect something a major casino does and that the free flow of ideas lets everybody on the train.

I know there is a lot of talk about this already in the Revel promotion sounds too good to be true thread, but I'd like to see an actual count of votes. The results of the poll will be considered before the next lucrative promotion bubbles up.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I certainly hope you're to blame. Just like I hope
the forum is to blame for Ahigh getting banned
from a few casinos. Whats the point of having a
forum like this and making a name for yourself,
which you have done, if people don't listen to you.

You want it to be your fault, just like a critic wants
to be the one that closes a bad Broadway show..
Bovada pays for you having some clout in this business,
keep it up..

This forum is owned and operated by the Wizard--nobody is forcing any of us to use this forum...the Wizard has to earn a living and the more people who come to this forum, the more people see the ads hereon...which, in turn, should translate into more income for the Wizard.

Absolutely you should discuss them. I was very critical of Bob Dancer for having a radio show with loyal listeners, and a column with loyal readers, who kept certain promotions "to himself." When you have a radio show, or website or column, you present yourself as an independent, credible resource and you should act independently and with credibility. It becomes your obligation to your followers.

You do a good job Wizard. Yes, discuss them -- good and bad.

I also say +1, but I refrain from voting for the moment.

I live only 2 hours from Revel, but that's still 2 hours away. As such, I don't see any way I can take advantage of this deal. Therefore, I have pretty much ignored that thread.



Mike, I'd rather not scan thru almost 700 posts in that thread. WHICH post are you talking about where you think you spilled the beans?

Curiosity got the best of me and I scanned thru that thread to read only the Wizard's posts.

I vote "YES!"

There's one question I want to ask: Did the Revel change the promotion at all since it was first announced? If so, was that a result of Mike's statements about it?

I think, regardless of the answers to those questions, Mike should not feel guilty about talking about. If anything, Mike should let Revel know, and take credit, for bringing a whole bunch of new gamblers to their door.

This could actually create more work for you Wiz. The casinos are more likely to hire you as a consultant to make sure they they don't screw up next time.
Be careful when you follow the masses, the M is sometimes silent.
