Peter was an Associate of the Australian Society of Accountants and left an accounting career to take up secondary teaching with the Victorian Education Department. Since the opening of Crown Casino in Melbourne over 27 years ago and Peter discovering the winning secrets, Peter has dedicated himself to researching the pokies in Australia and overseas ever since.

By asking himself questions no-one else in the country was asking. “If jackpots are linked to banks of poker machines, could the value to the players of the linked jackpots exceed the expected losses of the poker machines? Peter found the answers and the rest is history – $500 turned into millions.

Peter’s secret system can be used in the clubs and pubs in your neighborhood, in fact wherever there are poker machines linked to progressive jackpots. Peter has played in every casino in Australia except Townsville, and the vast majority of clubs and pubs in Sydney and Melbourne as well as all of the casinos in New Zealand and most of the pubs around that country as well. Peter has also researched playing opportunities throughout Asia, North America and South Africa.

Unlike other forms of professional gambling such as blackjack card counting that require you to break casino rules, Peter’s poker machine winning strategies do not require you to break any venue rules. Some venues do restrict the number of people who can play together when jackpots are high.

The amount in the linked jackpot has been contributed by the players and belongs to the players. It makes no difference to the gaming venue which player wins the jackpot.

Don’t! Peter’s winning system is extremely easy to understand and you will not be permitted to leave the course until you have personally demonstrated a mastery of the winning ways. The lessons are one-on-one and will be conducted at your pace. As well, you have the full confidence of the life-time back up support.

Peter has been playing the poker machines as a business for 27 years now and would like a balance between playing and teaching – using his two major skills (teaching and professional play) from the past thirty years. There has been a proliferation of very lucrative jackpots over the past few years – far more than Peter could ever possibly handle, and it will be his pleasure to pass on the skills and knowledge that he has accumulated over those 27 years, to a new generation of winners.

I will show you how you can give yourself a much greater chance of winning the jackpot than all of the regular players combined. This is part of the amazing and simple secrets that you will learn on the course.

No! Not if you live in Australia or New Zealand. This was established by the Federal Court of Australia in three separate cases in 1989: Evans v FC of T 89 ATC 4540; (1989) 20 ATR 922, Babka v FC of T 89 ATC 4963; (1989) 20 ATR 1251, and Brajkovich v FC of T 89 ATC 5227; (1989) 20 ATR 1570. You will need to pay tax on jackpots over $1,200 in the USA.

There are millions of dollars of potential profits awaiting for you in venues around Australia and New Zealand. This is the first time that Peter has been prepared to share his secrets and this will only be done with a select few students.

Yes. I welcome and encourage you to bring in your partner. There is no extra charge for this.

Yes, and in many cases, more so than in the city.

Your back up support enables you to make emergency phone calls for advice and assistance at just such times.

You have the option of doing the course over three full days, or six evenings or a combination.  As the courses are one-on-one, you can elect when you would like to do the course.

People gamble through ignorance and invest through knowledge. After you learn my secret techniques. You will be as sure of winning as gamblers are of losing. You will never again want to bet when the odds are against you.
Understanding the odds will mean that you fully understand the implications of the way you play. If you have a gambling problem, Peter will do everything in his power to re-educate you so that you fully understand the expected cost of indiscriminate play.

Peter started with a bankroll of only $500 and within three years he had made his first million dollars. You too can start with a bankroll of as low as $500. The more bankroll you start with the quicker you will make your target income. The level of risk can be adjusted so that there are fewer swings on your way to establishing your first sizable winnings.
