That Casino Game Protection for $500 had me searching as I thought I might have a copy. Sadly, mine is a similar title by Bill Zender.



I used to have the Forte book. It is a textbook sized green monster. I paid $200 new, and left it at the last property where I worked.

It is a fabulous book, with lots of scams explained and diagramed.

If you use USPS Priority or Express Mail, it's exactly the same price to Hawaii or Alaska (based on package size) as any other state. Your books would probably fit in medium or large Priority boxes. It's a federal regulation that USPS costs the same for all 50 ststes: not so for Fedex/UPS/etc, who use zones.

So when I was living in Hawaii, we only used USPS. The package price difference is formidable.

Note: I'm not sure about USPS Parcel Post pricing. I'm only referring to Priority and Express.



Media mail is ,by far, the cheapest way to ship books. It does go by distance, but is still cheaper than priority. It will take much longer and is subject to being opened for inspection but it's a cheap alternative.
