Lotteries are a way to make the poor pay taxes… unethical or whatever you like to call it, that's why it exists. Lower tax brackets play lotteries far more than people with better salaries, but also pay less income tax, but when you spend $50 each pay check on scratch offs the state doesn't care that they aren't taxing much from your check if you're a low income earner.
At least there's SOME chance I'll hit big within a Casino! With Mahjong Halls, they just gank you to death with the rake.
Here's something to consider- the number of ways arrange the cards when you shuffle a 52-card deck is 8.1 x 10 to the 67th.
To put that into some kind of perspective, there are "only" ~ 7.5 x 10 to the 17th grains of sand on Earth, or zooming out a bit, 1 x 10 to the 63rd grains of sand to fill a sphere with a diameter of two LIGHT YEARS across. Which means that every time you properly shuffle a SINGLE deck, you are almost certainly creating a combination of cards NEVER SEEN BEFORE. Casinos shuffle SIX to EIGHT decks of cards into a Blackjack shoe.
I'll leave it to you to determine if your increased probability of winning by counting cards is statistically significant…
Isn't Neil the guy who fabricated quotes from a newspaper? And fabricated quotes from George W. Bush? Who could ever believe his lies again??
What I find interesting is that Asians have a reputation of being good at math but Chinese especially gamble a lot. And gamblers are bad at math. Doesn’t add up.
Obviously there is a status component. If you can lose 1 million in one night, you must be a high roller “whale” and super rich. It shows wealth, fearlessness, confidence, etc. and there is some primitive part of the brain it taps into.
You just totally ruined your chances of getting a basketball coaching job.😂
I've seen the same number hit three times in a row playing roulette. Luckily I did have money on it lol.
Pit boss came over after the third one hit.
The lottery gives a VERY small percentage to the location selling the tickets. ( A store selling a billion dollar Power Ball ticket ends up with about one million dollars.) & education gers little to nothing. The states use it as a poor people's tax.
It's an accounting trick with giving money to education through the lottery. It reduces the money taken from other government funds that would be needed for education and the state funding towards education programs have almost all gone down when adjusted for inflation and population size after state lottery programs were started.
It's numbar too knot numbar doo stewpitt!
How can you drive down the Las Vegas strip and see all the millions spend on its allure, and not believe the odds favor the house?
He's so fishy
Poor Neal it’s wrong, the lottery will ever make money, even if people understand probability, the lottery players have an idea how difficult it is to win it but they think “why not me this time” just if you think I don’t understand probability I’m an Engineer
BUT WAIT LET ME INTERUPT YOU AGAIN JOE
It's not due… It's rigged 👀
By people so if you use phycology and geometry you can come up in roulette 👀
Dana White loves casinos. I give him credit for breaking his back to build the UFC, but if he didnt know the fertitas, he would be just another knucklehead gambling and losing at card tables.
Casinos make their money from addictions not from low intelligence.
Surely people don’t do the lottery because they actually expect to win right? I do the lottery knowing I’ll probably never win
bill burr is right when he says Neil only talks science with dumb guys, first of all, 90% of people do not go to casinos to gamble for profit, its entertainment, its called adrenaline (pretty weird that he never mentioned that)
Why does joe keep having him on. He’s awful
I find it funny that every time I hear Neil speak about a subject of which I have a deep understanding, he sounds like a complete moron.
Stealin footage from other well known casters seems. Seems legit.
I was taught in grade school. Dealt with flipping a quarter and how many time it lands on heads and percentage. After that, you think if there are more folks playing, more sides to a coin, the n more probably of fuck this odds. Risk assessment
Google plays an online casino ad before this video plays… 😂
my only gripe is the State lottery. At least in my state, they call it the Education Lottery and say most profits go to the school system. Which is true. But what they don't tell you is say the State budgeted 50 million for schools (made up numbers), and the lotto brings in 40 mill. Then the state only gives 10 mill to the schools. So the school system doesn't benefit at all. You would think the tax payers would save that 40 mill then, but no. It gets absorbed into something else. To me thats wrong, they should maintain the state budget for the schools and use the lotto as additional proceeds but that doesn't happen.
Why do people think the casino is a ripoff if I spend 200 bucks all night at the casino playing and having fun or I spend 200 bucks to take my girl to dinner for an hour what's the difference
In the state of Michigan, the campaign for a proposal to permit a lottery was a promise that all proceeds would go towards K-12 education. After its passage, the state legislature immediately reduced the education budget commensurate with the lottery revenues
I have a question for my knowledgeable statistics people: Can the same argument be made regarding the trade of equities?
The bastards are wanting to pay six to five on a blackjack instead of the standard three to two , refuse to play the six to five tables , fuuuck them
Never tell me the odds!
Carl Sagan:…quite frankly, he believed too much…
Neil is wrong to some extent. Read the gambler by Dostoyevsky. Also, statistics was taught at my high school, directly and indirectly. Also, look at the problem of induction.
And bowtie salesman need astrophysicists!
Get off your high horse Tyson!!!
State lottery money goes to education…people still dumb as ****, buying lottery tickets. If that isn't a fail, I don't know what is.
I was never taught probability in high school 40 years ago. I learned it on my own by analyzing Stratomatic Football and Baseball…..and from the book that came with my TI-55(birthday problem)
Here in PA, the lottery money goes to senior citizens (supposedly)
probability is there, a section of 8th grade math, maybe 7th.
Name better place to open a casino than in the US…I’ll wait 😂
Lottery is basically people investing a small amount of their money for a chance to get hit by a beneficial lightning. Hence why its a staple when it comes to betting because majority of people don't expect to win but just throw some pennies at a small possibility of a miracle.
Blackjack and poker are the only games where the Casino doesn't have the upper hand.
Sorry Neil, my wife is a high school math teacher and they can barely handle basic math so how could they possibly do statistics and probability math.
Gambling is for suckers trust me I know first hand I know 7 is going hit
A coin could land heads 999 times in a row, the probability on the 1000th toss of it landing tails is still 50/50.
He had me until he started talking about basketball which he genuinely knows absolutely nothing about 🤣
