Movie Reviews

So easy, it's unbelievable!!!

"I'm a huge Kevin Spacey fan, so when I saw that he was going to be making a movie out of the book BRINGING DOWN THE HOUSE, I was so interested that I decided to read it. Well, after reading it and learning a little bit more about the MIT Team and Blackjack, itself, I decided to try to learn the method myself. I'd never been to Vegas before, and bought this DVD just before going for the first time a few months back. I only had time to watch it once, but I took the Basic Strategy Chart that is included with me to the table in the Casino.

Well, I didn't take any casinos down for millions of dollars, but I did win a few hundred on my FIRST TIME OUT!! I couldn't believe how easy it was.

The DVD does a great job of teaching you in a very simple, easy to follow way exactly how to properly count the cards. Andy also gives you tips on how to count without getting caught by the casinos, and how to put together a team of people if you really want to win the big money, though I don't know if I have the guts to try that.

Basically, if you play Blackjack at all, and want to learn an EASY way to improve your game, and even if you don't want to count the cards, but just want to learn and understand basic Blackjack strategy, you HAVE to get this DVD. I promise that you'll make your money back in the first few hands of playing in Vegas.

The best on the market

"The Expert Insight videos are all of the highest quality and this one is no exception. I just wish I could go back to when I had time (e.g college) and have this DVD with my buddies....

A must have for anyone who is serious about playing blackjack."
Good basic primer for those upgrading bj skills

"This is a very good source for those of you wanting to take their blackjack skills to the next level. If you typically plop yourself down at a table and play only by feel, you can make your money last longer and even win some if you adhere to the basic rules that Andy tells you. The fake casino scenes are a bit hokey but the simulated table play is realistic and gives you a good idea of what to expect. That being said, viewing the DVD is one thing; listening, learning, and practice practice practice are absolutely necessary to improve your skills. Good luck!"
Interesting enough
