HOW GAMBLING WORKS
- Gambling is random: there is nothing you can do to control or influence the outcome.
It’s unpredictable – and this works to keep both the players and the House honest.
- Each and every time you play is an independent event. Therefore, your chances don’t get any better the more you play or the more you bet.
- In gambling, there are odds (i.e. in the roll of a die, there are 1 in 6 chances of rolling any given number). The odds are always against the player and in favour of the House. Let’s not forget that this is a business and the operator needs to make money in order to continue offering the game to players.
- There is a cost to every game and over time, all players will lose money to the House.
