Our guest this week is Roger Jones of VegasTickets.com. This company is a ticket broker and buys and sells tickets to events in Las Vegas, as well as major events all over the world. It's off the main subject matter of "Gambling with an Edge," but there are a lot of players who either want tickets or who get awarded tickets by casinos and would like to dispose of them profitably. This show tells you how.
