Beginner's luck at the casino: does it exist?
Does beginner luck exist in the casino? Are you more likely to win if you are playing for the first time? Mr. Casino has the definitive answer.
Fun question in the mailbox of Mister Casino ( you can go to it from the link https://indianapps.bet/cricket-betting-apps/). This time it's a question about beginner's luck:
'Dear Mister Casino, Every now and then I go to Holland Casino with some friends. We notice that friends who go for the first time often win money. Why is that?
Does beginner's luck really exist? Or does Holland Casino make sure they win so they come back faster?'
If you read the news regularly, you would almost think so:
'Belgian goes to Holland Casino for the first time and wins almost 1.4 million in Breda'
'Woman (22) visits casino for the first time and wins €75,000, with the bet of 1 euro'
Mr. Casino often hears stories about beginners who are very lucky. But: the odds of winning or losing at the casino are the same for everyone. Whether you're a first-time gambler or a hundredth-time gambler.
You can't influence slot machines (not even with your cell phone) and you can't predict the outcome of roulette.
After all, if a red number has fallen nine times, there is no greater chance that a black number will fall the next time. A roulette ball has no memory. This is the so-called gambler's fallacy.
Casino employees can't give a first-time visitor better odds of winning, either.
In blackjack at Holland Casino, the cards are automatically shuffled by the machine. The dealer does not know in advance which card he or she will draw, so he or she does not know whether it will be a good or a bad card. The same goes for punto banco.
As a beginner at the poker table, you may be lucky for a while, but after that you will certainly be played broke by experienced players. The dealer can't change that.
The slot machines don't care whether you've never been to a casino before or if you've been there many times. Whether you play at Holland Casino or at one of the legal online casinos in the Netherlands, such as Kansino or Circus Casino.
Do people who enter the casino for the first time win because they are beginner's luck? No.
If they win, it is because they are just lucky. In fact, beginner's luck does not exist as such, scientists agree 100%.
It absolutely happens that, for example, a beginner tennis player wins over an experienced tennis player, but that is due to a different coincidence. For example:
How is it then, that it seems that people who enter the casino for the first time often win? Some possible explanations:
Even though it seems to exist: beginner's luck, unfortunately, does not exist. But luckily this also means that your chances don't get worse when you go to the casino for the second, third or hundredth time.
In online casinos you could possibly say that beginners win more often, but that's because of the welcome bonuses and not because they're luckier.
