True Gambling Stories #008: How Blackjack May Have Saved FedEx
In this month's episode of True Gambling Stories, we take you to the blackjack tables. But this story has a twist. It’s about a global corporation and how a weekend at the blackjack tables in Las Vegas in the 1970s kept the whole operation afloat.
There’s a bit of blackjack, big money, business – and a little bit of the sights and sounds of old Las Vegas. This week's guests include the Las Vegas Advisor's Anthony Curtis and business management professor Dr. Bob Collins.
So put in the earbuds, sit back, and relax.
