5.0 out of 5 stars This was a really enjoyable read. Sept. 7 2004
By Squishyfur - Published on Amazon.com
I actually pulled this out of the local library for my Mom because she likes to hit the casinos sometimes. She's not a big reader so I wound up reading it myself, and it was really fun. The book is mostly annecdotes and stories of his shaky beginnings and how he used his system to try and show naysayers that it actually worked; but hidden in there are valuable lessons you must use in order to reach his system's full potential over the long run. Not that it takes long to turn a profit. The first time I ever used the advice from Mr. Irwin (last week) I turned $200 into $1000 in about 15-20 minutes. The $800 made me about even for all the money I've gambled and lost over my lifetime. Now I'm ready to start earning some money. Thank you Mr. Irwin and thank you Uncle Murray!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Winner's Edge can make you a Casino Winner! Aug. 30 2006
By Benny J. Berry - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have studied gambling nearly all my life and have bought and read countless books on the subject and most were not really that helpful and the systems all had failure modes. Bruce Irwin claims that Midas system has never failed. He gives great stories of how he came about getting the system (from a deceased Uncle) and how he traveled the world for about 20 years playing it and WINNING thousands of dollars. I have ridded myself of nearly all my gambling books except for The Winner's Edge, Full Time Gambler, and of course, Gambling's Greatest Secrets Revealed (a book I wrote myself!) which tells how to win by making only flat bets with no need to raise your bets.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Labouchere betting system May 29 2012
By Gilbert De Bruycker - Published on Amazon.com
The system Bruce Irwin explains and recommends, is the Labouchere betting system (also known as the Cancellation system).

However, at the end of his book he gives a warning, which makes this system worthless! He says:

"I have found that rather than stick to one color all the time, if you find you are loosing more than winning switch back with the wheel or table for a few spins, or switch against the wheel or table until you pitch it up again. I have found that a lot of people get attached to red or black, odd or even, and if at first they have a good winning streak, they will continue to play the same way all the time. Remember this, because black or red, odd or even, has been lucky a few times, this does not necessarily mean that it will always be lucky. To break that habit before it becomes difficult, learn to switch rather than play all the time on one color or odd and even."

Switch colors! But when? That's precisely what nobody can tell.

If one knows when to SWITCH colors, it will not be necessary to use a betting system at all.
