Casinos of Michigan Book by Steven James Hepker
Casinos of Michigan was reported, written and printed in Michigan by Michigander Steven Hepker. The former newspaper reporter approaches casinos with his driving force – curiosity – talking to dozens of casino workers and gamblers, and learning the odds for games like blackjack, penny slots and craps. The casino book profiles all 26 casinos in Michigan, offers tips on having more fun at casinos, and explores the history of Indian gaming, which began in Michigan.
Casinos of Michigan book celebrates the gaming hobby, especially slot machines, focusing on the thrill of the chase and not tribal politics, laws and social issues. Over the course of the four-year project, the author visited casinos all over the state. The book offers a snapshot of each casino, its history, architecture, accommodations, food, overall personality and gambling experience, as well as tips to make the visit more fun – not necessarily more profitable.
