I love the Wizard of Odds website. If you are a gambler of any game, experience, or status, you should have this site bookmarked. It is my number one resource for:
- Game odds, strategies & calculations
- General Gambling info – definitions, money management, etiquette and FAQ’s
- Playing simulations for free and learning correct strategies
About The Wizard of Odds himself – Michael Shackleford
This site was born on June 19, 1997. At first it was titled Mike’s Gambling Page. It was a good time to start a web site about gambling, as there were few good ones at the time. With plenty of shelf space, the site quickly became popular and took on a life of its own. The Wizard of Odds is Michael Shackleford, a former professional actuary who has made a career of analyzing casino games.
He writes most of the content for this site, drawing on his training in mathematics and actuarial science. It started out as a hobby, then as it grew and became more popular he moved it to its own domain and had it professionally designed. Michael writes, “I’m proud to have built something that’s used by thousands of people every day and is known around the world for providing quality, authoritative information.”
