EVOLUTION AND GAMBLING.

"You can just quit, but I wouldn't bet on it.

You're right, they are way ahead of you on the lines, the lines are strategically based to guarantee the bookies a profit on the vig. Even before there were computers, they had it worked out as to how to balance the books to guarantee a profit, there's just too much of a margin. Also you aren't disciplined enough, even if you knew the exact probabilities you can over bet and run expectations in your favor and that's what you do when you're trying to regain your losses, after a loss your plays should go down not just a little but a lot, you have to be risk averse. If you knew the probabilities and could operate like a computer you could perhaps gain by strict money management but it isn't going to happen.

The reason why it won't happen is because you are human. We have evolved over millions of years to over bet, to assume too much risk. This is because evolution doesn't care if we individually survive so long as enough survive to continue the species so evolution wants us to take risks that almost guarantee individual failure on the basis that some in the population are successful and some in the population are. That's why so many people play the lottery and some people do hit it rich but you are practically assured of losing your money when you play. The same is true of gambling and anything else where risk is involved, you are evolved to take risks that assure your individual defeat, you have to fight that any which way you can even if you're just investing for your retirement, with gambling the margins are tight, often guaranteed not to exist and you're almost certain to over bet.  In investments there are certain guidelines such as a conservative or moderate portfolio where you can be fairly confident you're not over betting but even with that almost everyone over bets. You can't blame your self for gambling that's what millions of years of nature has set you up for but as a rational man you have to fight it with every waking moment." By John W.

    If people have been known to quit Drinking, fooling around & much worse-  they surely can " attempt" to quit playing the lottery in their life time. Difficult, but not impossible.!

        I DO NOT PLAY THE LOTTERY. 

         

         

        I DID NOT PLAY THE LOTTERY TODAY. 

         

         

        HOW TO WIN THE LOTTERY BY NOT PLAYING=SAVE YOUR MONEY TO PLAY THE LOTTERY SOMEDAY. 


        OUR REGULAR LOTTERY PROGRAMMING.

         

         

        1) Playing the lottery more often for less tickets= Buying 1 lottery ticket.

         

         

        2) Playing the lottery less often for more tickets= Buying multiple lottery tickets.

         

         

        3) Playing the lottery less often for less tickets= Buying 1 lottery ticket monthly or yearly.

         

         

        4) Playing the lottery more often for more tickets= Spending more money= Gambling addiction.

         

         

        I SET A LOTTERY STOP LOSS LIMIT TO MINIMIZE MY LOSSES.  

        A lottery stop loss limit is very important to be a successful lottery player over the long term.

                              THE LOTTERY HAS NOT HEART. YOU SHOULD STOP PLAYING RUSSIAN ROULETTE WITH THE LOTTERY.

                              I will play the lottery, but not Russian Roulette. Lottery is better risk vs reward.

                              Lottery:

                              - Risk: $1 + dream

                              - Reward: Millions!

                              Russian Roulette:

                              - Risk: blow your brains out

                              - Reward: foolish pride

                              With 1 in 6 chance of death and Risk of Ruin of 100% after 5 plays, I would not play it. Strange game Russian Roulette, the only winning move is not to play.
