About

My Grandfather had a vision back in his prime! His vision was to get his invention into the hands of all those who love playing blackjack! While this idea seemed reasonable. His sales pitch was geared towards the wrong people. By the time he realized this, it was too late. My Grandmother wanted him to stop traveling, so that he could care for her and his eight children. His idea and dream came to a crashing halt. He spent countless hours with printing companies, beverage companies, casino executives, airline executives and many others. All of which had been documented and stored in a small briefcase. Locked away for ages it was about to see the light of day.

When my Grandmother passed away three years ago. He decided to pass down his creative and ingenious idea. Despite the years that had passed, everything remained intact. The business cards from people he had worked with. Casino executive contacts that he'd spoken with. Final products with costs of production from a time that had long passed. Most importantly, the patent and paperwork that went with it. I was in awe when he handed it all over to me.

Now, with it all in my hands. I had to come up with a modern day option, to bring his old time idea, to life. It's taken me a while to think of just how to do this, successfully. Not having much to work with, I hit up google to search for funding options. Then I stumbled upon Kickstarter. I figured I'd give it a whirl!

Now, many think gambling is just about spending and winning money, not true. Some, think of cards as a sport of its own, an art; a stress reliever. Whatever you think of Blackjack, beginner or novice, this is a helpful study guide. Some may say, "Isn't this a cheap cheating trick?". Well, the answer is, no. See, you can't have these kind of things at a table while you're playing. Of course, that would be cheating. The objective of my Grandfathers Blackjack Wheel is merely a precise study option. It lets you see first hand what's a safe play, when dealt any combination of cards. On the flip side, also shows when not to take a chance. Now, with that said it's not a guaranteed win, each time. Obviously, there is a little luck and chance, in-between, as with any game.

With this Kickstarter project, I hope to make his dream and idea come to life. I'd like to see this wheel on mobile devices across the world. Modernizing a paper product into a mobile app. With the backing of professional players to beginners alike, this may be possible. I hope you help his idea come to life! It'd be a dream come true to him and to me as well. I'd like to accomplish this before he passes. He's now 89 years old and is bound to his bed or recliner. Not able to get out much to enjoy the finer things in life. To see him light up because his dream came true would be an amazing thing to see. With him knowing the world backed his idea, he'd feel complete. I'd also be astounded to be able to say I helped accomplish this. I thank you in advance for all your support! Let's make his wheel spin around the world!

Risks and challenges

Finding a developer that fully understands my Grandfathers vision would more than likely be the toughest obstacle. I'd handle maturely holding on to my Grandfathers original design. I wouldn't want the ideas of others to come between my Grandfathers original vision. The only thing changing is the platform for which consumers use this product. I'd overcome by finding someone who believes in the original idea and who's willing to stick with it.
