Common Myths

Below are some common myths associated with gambling:

Myth #1

Myth #2

Feeling lucky or keeping track of previous results can increase your chances of winning.

Gambling comes down to chance every time you play. Every bet, pull, draw, card or dice throw, contest, or spin is completely random and can turn out any way, regardless of the previous result.

money back.

Actually, the more you gamble, the more likely it is you’ll lose more money. The odds are always stacked in the favor of those offering the bet.
