Most people seem to think that "you can't beat the house."  And, oddly enough, most of these people are gamblers.  When you think about it, its one of life's fascinating ironies isn't it?  If you believe the "house" has a 50% advantage then why do you even play? 

If you're destined to loose, then what's the point?  The truth is the "house" only has an advantage because you give it to them.  So I'm wondering - Do any of you know why this is and how you can stand on even ground with the "house?" 

Do you actually make a conscious decision to enter into a game of "chance" when there is none?  It's been said that "perception is reallity," so with that in mind..., what's your reallity?  Just loose and accept it or change your reallity?  Something to think about perhaps.

You can "beat the house".  I do it every day and have done it for years.  No magic, no smoke and mirrors, no complicated formulas or guess work.  Most of us tend to outthink ourselves.   We over engineer things that don't even require thought.  It's being human I suppose.

But the question at hand still remains; "How do you stand even with the 'house' and consistantly win!?" 

I'll look forward to your responses.

      Well...  50 viewers inside of 20 minutes and not 1 answer!  That tells me quite a bit in and of itself.  In fact, it speaks volumes.  People play with no idea of how they're going to win.  Amazing!

            Not even close to being funny, clever or humorous.  You have nothing I need or want.  Save your pathetic inuendo for someone worthy of it.  I have nothing to sell nor give for that matter.  It was a straight forward question.  Don't be an Ass-Clown there's no dignity in it.

                    You're sweet - But no, it has nothing to do with any system.

                        Simply put; what does the "House" have or do that most every gambler doesn't have or consider when they make a wager?  Just give it some thought.  That's all I'm going to say.  But look at the number of people on this site that have viewed this thread and don't have a clue as to what should be so painfully obvious.

                              Due to the odds, beating the house at the casinos is a lot easier than at the lottery.

                              As far as the lottery goes, I have never seen a successful system, formula, whatever, that allows someone to consistently win more than they lose.

                              The only people that come out ahead are the big winners that have the most important element on their side: luck. And many big winners end up losing much of their money back to the lottery and other unwise spending.

                              All of the lottery systems fall down when asked to post predictions in advance over a selected time period.

                              People play the high odds of the lottery out of a hope to win. The lottery is selling hope...
