"Could we have survived for all these years if the information we're providing these players isn't helping?"
Why certainly! People are basically idiots! Casinos rake in billions. People believe the crap these guys are publishing and 20% believe the lottery is the path to wealth!
That's pretty much what I thought, except I wasn't thinking about casinos. It's pretty funny hearing that from people whose publications are about a form of gambling that generally returns only 50 cents on the dollar. Last I knew, cigarettes were still selling pretty well, and the best you can hope for as a smoker is that cigarettes will make your teeth brown and your breath stink, but not kill you. A substantial percentage of people who are rich got rich because their customers are fairly far out on the left side of the bell curve.
