new gambler is hungry for those little tidbits of information that
can make the difference between a trip to the table being fun, or
being frustrating. Gambling tips are available far and wide on the
Internet, and they come in two flavors, good and bad. The problem
is, its often hard to tell, as a novice gambler, who's giving you
good advice and who's giving you bad advice.
Fortunately gambling tips are usually backed by some sort of intuitive
or nonobvious mathematical reasoning. So when your out and about
picking up the latest tips to help you gamble, pay attention to
the source of the tips, and the logic they seem to promote. Often
you will see the same tips over and over again, this is not a bad
thing. This usually means that they are generally accepted, or they
have all come from one source, and that source must be quite accessible
to Internet publishers.
we talk about gambling tips, we must talk about the odds. As you
may know, odds are based on a branch of mathematics known as probability.
Probability is used in all aspects of our lives: weather, science,
genetics, medicine, business, stocks, insurance. Is it likely to
rain tomorrow? The average male is expected to live how long? What
are the odds that your child will have your blood type? Within gambling,
the question becomes, what are the house odds? Check out our page
for novices on gambling odds.
Gambling tips usually match up with components of advanced or basic
gambling strategies. When you find a good tip, search from a search
engine and see if you can find the same tip somewhere else. If you
can't, go and ask a gambling expert. There are many community forums
online where professional or seasoned gamblers will be happy to
help you out. Since these tips should match up with logic, look
for the logic within them.
But tips are not always the same thing as advice on specific situations
within a game. That more reasonably falls under the topic of gambling
strategies. Take for example the roulette "tips" published in a
guide to casino gambling by Andrew Brisman.
Many gambling tips are taken from published gambling books, and
often go without proper credit. These tips are usually laid out
in a simple to understand manner with some supporting statement.
-Never make the five-number bet (0, 00, 1, 2, and 3). Its house
edge is 7.89%
-Search for European roulette wheels (37 numbers including single
0). The house edge on all bets is 2.70%
These are perfect examples of good gambling tips. They contain a
logical element, backed by mathematical example of how the house
edge is reduced.
Some good tips never mentioned the house edge, as they are general
rules to gamble by. For example -"professional roulette player"
is an oxymoron. No betting system will change the casino's advantage.
Very useful to know. For more information on roulette and why systems
are not so useful for that game, check out Aaron's roulette page.
