There are two schools of thought to winning jackpots: Those who subscribe to lady luck and those who subscribe to statistical methodology.
Most normal people contend that gambling is a matter of chance, and chance is governed by fate and lady luck. The superstitious pray to lady luck before tossing their coin. If they do win-it meant that fate smiled through lady luck. They cannot comprehend how some people can win again and again-especially first time players, and thus tribute it to the workings of a higher power.
In this school of thought, the skill is not considered. Lady luck could favor a novice just as well as an expert, and sometimes she likes novices more than professionals! You may have sighed that lady luck favored the lucky person who repeatedly won for that night. If this is of any comfort to you, do bear in mind that Lady Luck is capricious and fickle. She changes her favorites every night. You could very well be the next!
As for the mathematical school of thought, these statisticians argue that winning does not depend on the moods of a divine power-it lies in the hands of man. These statisticians are less superstitious and believe in the power of man to change their fate.
Critics of the casino industry are more often than not statisticians who prefer to call these gambling games as simply, games. They are no more different than your rusty old Red Alert games, or your Role Playing Games. They would persuade people to believe that winning is not governed by luck, but rather your calculated moves.
They deem themselves as experts in the field and encourage the best ones into playing big bets where the stakes are high while the inexperienced ones are relegated to judi online.
In comparison, superstitions of people render them comically silly. They would do anything to change their luck or have fate give them a break. Some people bring in with them 4 leaved clovers, rabbit’s foots, lucky horseshoes, lucky colors and such. These are normal, but there are the more eccentric ones like skipping on every alternate step to help lady luck notice you. These reduce an intelligent human being to a groveling beggar hoping for a dose of luck from fate. More often than not, fate scorns such people in favor for the nonchalant. It seems that the divine powers are just as fallible as any human being-we want what we don’t have. The ones with the extreme beliefs usually leave for home bitter.
On the other hand, statistics show that the odds of winning a jackpot are 1 to at least 600,000. This is very minimal-and miserable odds indeed. If you believe in lady luck, chances are that she’s not going to favor you over 600,000 plus hopefuls in the game.
Whichever school you subscribe to, the point is that gambling is about losing. The only person who profits is the casino owner who has his eyes on your money!
