The most comprehensive reference book on betting and gambling on the market with over 1200 entries. Wide ranging, often quirky, sometimes offbeat but never boring if you're interested in betting or even just reading about it. The book takes a wide angled definition of the genre covering sports, racing, poker, lotteries, political, prop and financial betting. It explores the roots of gambling going back thousands of years right up to the present day e-gambling revolution. The development of gambling law, theory, systems as well as slang and word origins are all comprehensively detailed and the personalities, scams, scandals and coups scattered throughout gambling history are all brought to life. Laid out in an A-Z format, it is comprehensively cross referenced so you can delve deeper into subject areas and explore the most unlikely connections.
