Blackjack can be as complex or as simple as you make it

The key to making money playing blackjack is knowing when to increase your bet to take advantage of a situation that may have tilted in favor of the players. Even if you become an expert at keeping track, it's no guarantee you'll win every time you play. The dealer and player are free to act according to the set rules. The game of black jack can be as simple or as complex as you want. It depends on how seriously you wish to approach the game. For example, if playing $5 hands for any length of time during a playing session, the casino is going to keep your profits to a minimum or even "grind" your money from you.

The legislature is in its final session. It is election year in Alabama. Alabamians want their legislators to allow them to vote on receiving their fair share of the money from gambling in the state. The current governor has had a very accomplished five-year reign as Governor. She should create a constitutional amendment that garners the tremendous amount of money spent on gambling and also a Gambling Regulatory Commission to monitor and police gaming. It would be a three-fifths vote in legislature to place the initiative on the ballot. If polling is correct, it would pass 65-35.
