I have two distinct lives. One in the trenches of low-budget film and television, the other in professional gambling. Because of the feast-or-famine nature of show business I need a reliable income... gambling. So here you will read about both worlds. Enjoy!

Gambling With an Edge - guest Roger Jones

Our guest this week is Roger Jones of VegasTickets.com. This company is a ticket broker and buys and sells tickets to events in Las Vegas, as well as major events all over the world. It's off the main subject matter of "Gambling with an Edge," but there are a lot of players who either want tickets or who get awarded tickets by casinos and would like to dispose of them profitably. This show tells you how.

We welcome your questions - send them to us at gamblingwithanedge@gmail.com, or you can find me at @RWM21 on Twitter.
