how much of statistics and probably mathematics was developed by gamblers? did those gambler-mathematicians die wealthy? if they didn't then how good could their math be? math is weak magic, casino operators are all billionaires, there aren't mathematicians walking out of the casinos with bags of money every day, none of the successful gamblers give a shit about studying math.

Even being a card counter isnt all its cracked up to be. Dig into the math and the return of investment and youll see that not everything is like in the movies

The people who own the casinos are the same people who fund those movies filled with fairy tales about people walking out of the casinos with bags of money. The post you replied to is a prime example of how much difficulty some people have separating reality from the Hollywood fairy tales they watch on the pixel screen.

Think of it like magic, sure people know they are probably being tricked, but it's magic so who cares?

You realize that casinos have cameras all over the house and they ban people once they figure out that they're good
