In the last time whatever I bet on I win....ain't no joke (I won last 4 tickets in the run). Sure bets aren't high but still.....unusual. I don't even care too much about teams I bet on, no do I follow their games lol like some of my buddies do.
Previously I won perhaps 5-6 "tickets" in the last year or so....that is not high in spite of the fact that I don't really bet often.

So....what's behind this phenomenon?

Should I expect some repercussions? One of my buddies wont drive in the same car with me, he said that is dangerous http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I think perhaps prof.raaaid may explain the issue further.... (probabilities, possibilities)

With a bit more insight and 'lateral' thinking it is possible to predict with a high probability the next numbers - based on the history.

It relies on the computers power to do repetitive tasks which the human brain would take centuries to do.

The Wiki statement although loosely based on Maths, does not seem to take the more recent Maths research into account (eg: Chaos is a fairly old subject by now), some of which is making sense and predictability of randomness. I should get back into this http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

Anybody with half a brain cell would know that casinos and slots are rigged. Those who play them are just incredibly dumb, unintelligent or just too hopefull. If they do not lose their wordly belongings here, they'd lose it somewhere else. Some do well because they play the 'numbers' game and that why the casinos kick them out - makes 'business' sense.

Looking at the history of Africa, you'll see the Darfur story everywhere, not because of drought or famine but because of greed, and gross traditionally fueled stupidity. We have a saying down here in ZA.
"It take 20 years after independence, for an African country to hit rock bottom - If it does not get it right by year 10 it's a gonna".

If you're that concerned, pop along to Darfur and do your bit.. heh heh.. You won't last long - trust me.

Dont forget the real reason why casino's exist
"Money laundering". If they can also garner some change from average joe punter all well and good.

What was the old one again??

mortoma

What was his last one? Was it that Cookie monster one?? At least it looked like the old Sesame Street character. Besides, I'm surprised Freak Solo did not instead fantasize about strafing his old avatar. This is a combat flight sim forum. You should feel like strafing or bombing, not punching. Punching is inappropriate.

I didn't like his old name much either, "Kuna" reminds me of the small town of Kuna, Idaho. Been there, hate that.
