Every single day I get email from “experts” that want to offer me their system describing how I too can beat the slots. Some even suggest that I possibly could easily make $1,000 per day. Well, I would love to make $1,000 daily playing the slots, but they are all scams to offer you worthless information. Sure, you “could” easily make $1,000 daily, but… you won’t, and these con men know you won’t, they are avoiding false advertising prosecution by using the word “could.” These advertisements are no further credible than if I were to promote a guide for $79.99 that claimed:
“You might win a million dollars tomorrow within the next lottery drawing, buy my book for $79.99 to discover how.”
I possibly could fill the book with all sorts of really interesting and worthless information, letting you know how to choose six numbers on a lotto card xo wallet, and fulfill my promise, but do you consider my book or my system will make you win? No, but with or without my book, you “could” easily win.
I’ve taught both probability and statistics in a university. I promise you that both work against you in a large way everytime you play the slots. Las Vegas itself is a testament to losers. They didn’t build those huge casinos so people could stop set for their $1,000 daily handout.
Because I desired to see what these slot machine books were about, I gave a several “system experts” the advantage of the doubt and challenged them to send me their system for a free trial in trade for a few things, my testimonial when it worked, and 1 / 2 of my first two days of winnings when 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 daily for two days, I’d pay them $1,000 for his or her system. To me it seemed significantly more than reasonable, they certainly were only asking $29.99 for his or her system and if it had been legitimate and really worked I was willing to pay for them $1,000 for it. I guess they certainly were not just con men, they certainly were not necessarily gamblers either. Actually, only one even bothered to react to my challenge and he said that his system was just too valuable to waste his time on a doubter. Reading between the lines, what this means is, he had a lot of suckers arranged to purchase his scam to risk me exposing him.
I believe what these systems rely heavily on is that gamblers, particularly problem gamblers, believe there must be something on the market that will let them have 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’s been eluding them. The truth is that the con men have only discovered a human weakness and they are preying upon it.
Today’s slot machines are made strictly on probability theory and the statistics dictate that in the long-run the casino will win. Sure, you can win, but if you play good enough, you will certainly lose. If there were any kind of system that assured you of developing ahead playing the slots, then both statistics and the probability theory supporting the whole premise would be skewed and only the gambler and the casinos would be shutting down.
The slot machines are very just computers playing a routine of probabilities. In the event that you win it is because you happened to play when the machine happened to hit one of many probabilities that results in a payout. These are always fewer in number than the probability that results in you losing.
The next time you are in a casino have a look around. Each and every slot machine in the casino costs the casino thousands of dollars. Most casinos cost many countless dollars to build, and some employ hundreds of individuals just to help keep them going. Take a go through the ceiling and count the cameras, then multiply this number by a couple thousand dollars to see simply how much the casino dedicated to security. Look at the beautiful tiled floors, the lush carpets, the dining facilities, etc., then think about if you actually believe some low-life con man really has a system that would assure you of taking $1,000 daily from this place. Bring it one step further and think about why he’d sell it for you for $29.99 when he could sign contracts with other folks to work for him with a non-disclosure agreement and no compete clause. They could be his employees applying his “system” for $300 daily pay while turning over the other $700 daily to him. Exactly why is he making his “system” available for you for $29.99? Because he can’t make any money consistently playing the slots and he needs you to purchase his “system” for the seed money to guide his habit.
If you like playing the slot machines and do not mind losing a little money for the sake of the entertainment value, great. If you intend to play the slots for the occasional thrill of winning and are willing to lose in the long-run, great. I personally find scouting for books and looking up their value online to be as being similar to playing the slots, however when I lookup a loser it doesn’t cost me anything however the few seconds it takes to appear it up and I am always pleasantly surprised when my cell phone informs me that I have discovered a winner.
