They are sick. My wife lost our savings ($150k) car house everything.
Odds favor the house in games like 21. It is possible to win occasionally, so people "gamble"....hence the coining of that term....that they might win.
Cause you gotta know when to hold em, know when to fold em, know when to walk away, know when to run. You never count your money when you're sittin at the table- there'll be time enough for counting, when the dealing's done.
The house does not always win. The overall odds are in favor of the house. The best odds are roulette, but only when you bet red or black. If you start betting other combinations, as most do at the table, the odds are heavily against you. <br />
It is better to find a game, such as poker, where the house is not a pla<x>yer and has no interest in the outcome. They just take a rake from the pot.
