Wizard of Odds Video Interview
Elite Edge Videos
In January 2014 I tried to make up for the low-budget videos I did in 2011. I hired Elite Edge Productions to help with the audio, video, and editing. These are much better than my old ones. Any fault in them I place on myself.
Heather Ferris Videos
These videos were made by my assistant Heather Ferris. They were all shot at the 2014 and 2015 Raving Table Games show.
In October 2011 I spent two days making instructional gambling videos. They were edited months later. My apologies for the low production values.
American Casino Guide Videos
From time to time Steve Bourie, of the American Casino Guide, visits Vegas and asks me to do some videos with him. His production values are much better than mine, which may explain why they get about 20 times as many views each. Enjoy.
