Take $5 dollars of your winnings and go get a website, log in and invite only for your investors. Then you can post scans of your expenses, pictures of your trips and your massive winnings.
Casino personnel are not scouring the internet looking for people posting ways on how to win, it's all over the place anyways. Besides, they are all mostly minimum wage employees who could care less where anyone in a higher position only wAtches cameras and current activities.
So throw some people a bone and show them you are actually doing what you claim to be doing
Thanks for your comments. I thought about setting up a site, but I prefer to keep as much offline as I can. I do not wish to bother with the Spam and fake users that try to infiltrate the site. I also don't want a formal link showing up in a search engine! What's also worrying is any website tied to a business name or owner can be ultimately traced back to me. If the casinos identify who I am, it wouldn't take long for them to add me to their blacklist. While I may come off as too paranoid, that's how I conduct business. None of the other AP's I interact with have websites and have worked well with outside investors. For those with questions, I provide a yearly summary of playing records. I can also provide references from other full time AP's that can confirm our skillset. I also can provide quarterly summary statements that itemize playing expenses (airfare, hotel, etc) and winnings.
You're right, there are not groups of casino personnel scouring the Internet, just like there are not hoards of card counters breaking the bank!
. However, certain surveillance employees and loss prevention consultants hired by casinos have posed as shills on other Blackjack/AP sites in the past. Loss prevention in the gaming industry is a big business. Additionally, I have personally seen a shill at a table while I've played! With the vast amount of information available on the Internet, all it takes is one automated script to scrape material that might give the casinos additional knowledge.
I will go out of my way to provide records to those interested. I know it's very difficult to take someone at their word, especially someone like me --- posting about beating the casino to provide additional income. Besides e-mail, I can make myself available for a conference call, or even meet up in person (location dependent, of course).
Perhaps if I chose to be an AP full-time for a few years, I might set up a site, register an official business, etc. Unfortunately, highly-bankrolled, large organized teams have a very limited lifespan -- they are burnt out very quickly and casino countermeasures will prevent meaningful play after a period of time. As a small two/three person team, we have been able to consistently profit from our hobby without too many repercussions (we're only barred in a couple of locations). We're making good enough extra money on our own, but if we could help make easy money for others, while having fun, why not?
Again, I appreciate the discussion. Please reach out to me if I can help any further.
