How we got started!

Steve Bourie and his son, Matt, were the author and editor, respectively, of the American Casino Guide book.

The first edition was published in 1992 and it was the #1 bestseller in the U.S. on the subject of casino gambling and travel for more than 25 years!

Unfortunately, 2020 marked the start of the COVID crisis and the end of the printed edition of the book.

Although the print edition of the book no longer exists, the American Casino Guide book is still being published, but now in a digital format.
