When I tell people that I do casino betting calculations, the first question that usually comes up is, “Do you mean slot machines?”
In fact, I have never made any calculations for slot machines. While I believe slot machine math has aspects that make it easier than it sounds, I’ve heard people say that slot machine math is a proven product.
I mean, there’s really nothing to prevent the companies that operate the slot machines from taking slot machines based on proven and true topics and just changing topics where almost all the math remains the same.
Slot machine mathematicians also have a significant advantage over table games. They can do all frequencies. If they wanted a certain combination to be 1.2345787674% of the time, they would just do it. In table games, which are mostly card games, we are caught up with all the coincidences that happen.
This means that these probabilities remain known and finite. Even though the model is very complex, we can estimate it in the hundreds of percent, which is pretty good. I can’t imagine what it would be like to think about a possible sporting event, even though that sounds like a pretty fun suggestion (no toys).
The number of variables included in the calculations should be staggering. And many of these variables are based on statistics, which must include a lot of assumptions. In baseball, they need to consider the past performance of certain strokes against certain pitchers. They have to take into account whether the player is cold or hot. Basically, I think the math for sports betting is the math for table games slot online
This whole topic worries me because of today’s conversation on Facebook. A friend who is an avid Yankees fan commented on his chances of qualifying for this year’s playoffs. He didn’t expect it given where they are and how they’ve been playing lately.
The other friend agreed. However, a third friend optimistically predicts how the Yankees will turn the tide, winning long and getting another wild AL card. I’m a Mets fan, so I know I’m overly optimistic.
