Every day I get email from “experts” looking to offer me their system describing how I too can beat the slots. Some even suggest that I could easily make $1,000 per day. Well, I want to make $1,000 each day playing the slots, but they are all scams to offer you worthless information. Sure, you “could” easily make $1,000 each day, but… you won’t, and these con men know you won’t, they are avoiding false advertising prosecution utilizing the word “could.” These advertisements are no more credible than if I were to advertise a guide for $79.99 that claimed:
“You could win a million dollars tomorrow within the next lottery drawing, buy my book for $79.99 to discover how.”
I could fill the book with a myriad of really interesting and worthless information, letting you know how to pick six numbers on a lotto card xo wallet, and fulfill my promise, but do you think my book or my system can make you win? No, but with or without my book, you “could” easily win.
I have taught both probability and statistics in a university. I promise you that both are working against you in a big way each time you play the slots. Las Vegas itself is just a testament to losers. They didn’t build those huge casinos so people could stop set for their $1,000 each day handout.
Because I wanted to see what these slot machine books were all about, I gave a some of the “system experts” the benefit of the doubt and challenged them to send me their system for a trial offer as a swap for two things, my testimonial if it worked, and half my first two days of winnings if it worked. Doesn’t that sound reasonable? If it worked, I’d write a supportive testimonial in order for them to use on the website, and if I truly made $1,000 each day for just two days, I’d pay them $1,000 due to their system. To me it seemed significantly more than reasonable, these were only asking $29.99 due to their system and if it had been legitimate and really worked I was willing to pay them $1,000 for it. I suppose these were not just con men, these were not necessarily gamblers either. In reality, only one of them even bothered to react to my challenge and he explained that his system was just too valuable to waste his time on a doubter. Reading involving the lines, this implies, he’d too many suckers prearranged to get his scam to risk me exposing him.
I do believe what these systems rely heavily on is that gamblers, particularly problem gamblers, believe there should be something available that may give them an edge. They will buy these “systems” with the hopes that the con man offering it had been once within their position and made some type of discovery that has been eluding them. The reality is that the con men have only discovered an individual weakness and they are preying upon it.
Today’s slot machines are designed strictly on probability theory and the statistics dictate that in the long-run the casino will win. Sure, you are able to win, but if you play long enough, you will certainly lose. If there were almost any system that assured you of being released ahead playing the slots, then both the statistics and the probability theory supporting the entire premise could be skewed in support of the gambler and the casinos could be shutting down.
The slot machines are really only computers playing a cycle of probabilities. In the event that you win it is basically because you happened to play when the equipment happened to hit one of the probabilities that results in a payout. They are always fewer in number compared to the probability that results in you losing.
The next time you’re in a casino take a peek around. Each and every slot machine in the casino costs the casino several thousand dollars. Most casinos cost many countless dollars to build, and some employ hundreds of people just to help keep them going. Take a consider the ceiling and count the cameras, then multiply this number with a couple thousand dollars to see simply how much the casino dedicated to security. Consider the beautiful tiled floors, the lush carpets, the dining facilities, etc., then consider if you probably believe some low-life con man really features a system that will assure you of taking $1,000 each day using this place. Take it one step further and consider why he’d sell it for your requirements for $29.99 when he could sign contracts with others to benefit him with a non-disclosure agreement and no compete clause. They could be his employees applying his “system” for $300 each day pay while turning over one other $700 each day to him. Why is he making his “system” available for your requirements for $29.99? While he can’t make any money consistently playing the slots and he needs you to get his “system” for the seed money to aid his habit.
If you want playing the slot machines and do not mind losing a little money for the sake of the entertainment value, great. If you wish to play the slots for the sporadic thrill of winning and are willing to get rid of in the long-run, great. I know find scouting for books and looking up their value online to be as being similar to playing the slots, nevertheless when I research a loser it doesn’t cost me anything however the couple of seconds it takes to appear it up and I’m always amazed when my cellular phone informs me that I have found a winner.
