No. Gambling is the most retarded thing in the world and anyone addicted to it literally has it out for themselves to sui.

All these answers are retarded.

>Casino games

No. Unless you encounter a roulette wheel with no maximum, and have $10k to bring with you, and are only willing to play in $1 increments, you cannot win at any casino-game long-term. This is because of Expected Value. On a fair coin flip, you have a 50% of winning or losing, so if you bet $1 on Heads, you have a 50% chance of winning or losing a $.

>.5*1 - .5*-1 = 0

If you did this a million times, you would end up with a change of $0, or something very close to it.

In a game of roulette, the math for betting on red is

>.42*1 - .58*-1 = -.08

You are losing $0.08 for every dollar you bet on red in roulette. Sure, in the very short term, anything can happen. Red can be spun 10 times in a row, and you can turn your 100 into 102,400 by letting it ride. But, in the long term, and often in the medium term, you will lose.

Double betting on roulette is also dangerous. Table maximums exist to prevent you from doing this profitably.

>bet $1
>bet $2 (spent 1)
>4(3)
>8(7)
>16(15)
>32(31)
>64(63)
>128(127)
>256(255)
>511(510)
>1022(1021)

And so on. All it would take is one run of particularly bad luck (which WILL happen eventually) to wipe most people's finances out completely, or otherwise hit the table max, and you would be doing this just so you could win $1.

I am a professional sports better. I’ve been doing this for nine years and I have made about $3 million from bedding. I’ve also made about $2 million just from holding bitcoin. I’ve never really been big into bitcoins, but I need to use them for depositing and withdrawing to different gambling sites.

I like my work but it is pretty demanding. I don’t think it’s so difficult that not anybody can do it, but sometimes it can be stressful and the swings especially will take their toll on your emotions if you’re not disciplined. The bad swings of course are pretty heavy, losing what one person mix in an entire year in a single day. But the good swings are kind of fucked up to. I feel it is taken some of the joy out of every day activities when I know that there have been days where I made $100,000 in a single day.

Overall most people will fail because they won’t have the discipline, but for the few who can do it it’s a great gig

>> No.28269589

Oh and by the way, most of the comments in this thread are absolutely fucking retarded. There are very very few professional gamblers that make their money in casinos. Some do it playing blackjack, but that’s a pretty hard life even for the very best. Nobody is ever winning anything playing roulette, you would need a biased roulette table, and the tables that are biased get caught very quickly by the casino. if someone tells you they’re professional gambler and they’re not a sports better or a poker player, be extremely sceptical

Yes it can actually.

Mathematically you lose over time guaranteed. They don’t build those big shiny buildings by giving back more than they take from people.

Roulette and craps ate 50% and blackjack is 49% in your favor. If you play the numbers you break even. I’ve sat at roulette playing odds and broke even for hours straight. It’s the low probability stuff that gets you both ahead and out of money. It comes down to luck.

The only game where odds are (potentially) better than 50/50 is poker but that’s a different thing entirely.

You cannot win long-term playing Jacks or Better. There are sites that literally tell you what games are profitable if played perfectly, and you will only win at them at a rate of 1% per $ put in, so you're mainly relying on comps and shit.

How would one learn proper sportsbetting? I could compile a bunch of data on players and teams myself, but aside from taking a totally math-based approach, I'd have no clue how you'd profit from it when the moneyline odds all have super high vig.

>>28267551

Poker is difficult. Most people fuck it up, because they don't understand the math.

The game started in France (it was called pour quer, Americans misheard it), and it was just the face cards. It got imported to New Orleans, which imported it through riverboats. Gamblers added more cards and colors to the deck so they could better trick people into thinking they could win at it. Texans took away the limits, and added community cards to add even more gamble to it.

The result is a game so fucking convoluted, that people build high-end PCs to run $1000 software to simulate games so they can have a .01% edge in $1,000,000 buyin tournies against other 200IQ nerds.

I don’t have much of an interest in encouraging people to compete against me, but you made a fairly decent post so I will throw you a bone.

The great majority of sports bettors do not use particularly fancy math. We just copy the math that other people do. There is lots of different places to bet, so not every site always has the same price. If you can compare and consistently find the best price on the market in better, you already are a big advantage

In many ways sports betting is more about trading then being an actual expert in sports. I for example may watch only three or four sporting events in entire year

>> No.28271302

>>28266709
Nope. Even if you do figure out a system that makes you money you will just get banned from casinos. They will notice, 100% guarantee.

Theoretically you could make decent money playing poker, but for every person who makes a living playing poker there are 10,000 people who failed trying and lost their entire bankroll.

Well, no. First of all, I adore gambling. And I usually play big. I just feel it and sometimes make huge bets. And yeah, sometimes win. But is it a reliable way to earn money? I doubt. Even if you play on safe gaming platforms like https://fairspin.io/ or similar ones which are based on blockchain. You can be sure that your payoffs won't disappear. But odds of winning aren't in your favour so keep this in mind and play responsible. Maybe my approach to gambling isn't usual but I think it's safe at least.
