Facts or Fallacy 4

Question:
If a slot machine offers a return of 93%, does that mean that I’ll leave the machine with 93% of my money after playing?

Fallacy

Answer:
On a 93% return machine, the average slot player actually leaves with about 57% of their money. This in the Gambling industry is what is known as ‘ churning ‘. It happens because players don’t actually pocket their winnings, they put them right back into the machine.

Facts or Fallacy 7

Question:
When playing roulette, if a number hasn’t been hit in a while, it’s due.

Fallacy

Answer:
That type of thinking is so absurd it even has its own name – “the gambler’s fallacy” Each spin of a wheel is a totally random event, which means runs will happen very randomly. You just never know when they’ll begin or end.
