9.4 trans 3

  1. 1. Can you remember what some of the gambling superstitions and myths are? We know that in games of chance: • There is no hidden code or pattern you can learn in order to predict the outcome - it's a game based on random processes that no-one can predict. • Since much of gambling is based on random processes, nothing you do will influence the outcome. • No perseverance or continued play at a particular game will improve your chances of winning. Each outcome is an independent event, with each outcome as likely to occur now as at any time in the future. • The house advantage will, of course, ensure that in the long run, you pay to play. • There is no such thing as an “almost win”. • Being good at video games doesn't mean that you'll be good at computer gambling games. So, knowing the house advantage + knowing that you're not able to control the outcome in any way = being able to increase your ability to manage risky behaviour and being able to decrease your risks of developing a gambling problem.
