The Due Theory at the Online Casino
You probably have heard about the due theory at the online casino.
Some people might refer to the due theory as the gamblerís fallacy.
It is where gamblers believe that something is due to happen. Whether
it is a number, a card, or even heads or tails, the due theory says
that something is overdue to happen. The problem with the due theory
is that it is false.
Gambling is all about the numbers. The bottom line is that the house
has the edge. It doesnít matter how many times something has happened
there is no reason that the opposite has to happen next time. The simplest
example of how to illustrate the due theory is to flip a coin. If heads
comes up five times in a row then the due theory says that tails is
due to come up next. In reality that is not true as the chances are
still 50-50 on the next flip. You can take this due theory and apply
it to roulette, craps, video poker, baccarat and practically every other
online casino game.
The problem with the due theory is that it can get gamblers into all
kinds of trouble. People will watch the roulette wheel and after five
or six reds or blacks they will bet the opposite way. The problem with
doing that is that there is no such thing as a number or color being
due as the wheel has no memory.
The due theory sounds great, is fun to follow, but in the long run
it wonít win you any money at the online casino.
