Risk Intelligence is Real!

I knew about this all along but this speaker gave a name to my theory. Thanks for stealing my idea sir! lol. You have to take into account non standard and non traditional ways of learning to get a jump on great ideas, trends, and patterns in life. Gambling hones certain peoples ability to perform this skill by being in tune in a way that is not taught in a school, university, or employment position.

My interpretation of 'risk intelligence' is an ability to almost unconsciously assess and get a reasonably accurate measure of the risk that a certain proposition presents to you, especially based on experience. This is much like the way ants can do trigonometry and work out routes and directions without actually understanding mathematics. Since life is one risk after another and this risk intelligence would tend to be favourable, it's not unreasonable to believe in it as a kind of intuitive skill. We've all at some point said 'I saw that coming' and some of us foresee obvious non-random events in the future, where less 'tuned in' folks are blind.



However, taken in the context of your other post, I suspect that you believe that this intuition extends to an ability to foresee trends, runs and streaks in a game of chance. I assert that 'risk intelligence' as described in that video is not attempting to describe that and further, that no amount of such intuition can predict random events in the future. If the video does indeed suggest such a facet of 'risk intelligence' then I assert that it's plain wrong.

I disagree with his 'expert gamblers do it for the thrill'. Sure they want to win but its a matter of money, not just a 'win'.

OnceDear I do understand you point of view its hard to argue a point in which there is not absolute proof in a physical sense. But when you speak of intuition and risk intelligence that is not something tangible that we measure. We can only measure the outcomes of the choices that make by seeing trends and patterns. Everything in life has a pattern and it is no different than gambling. Even slots machines have cycles, patterns, and trends in which is not so obvious to the casual player. When you have practiced any one thing for long enough you get a sense for how to perform without having to put so much effort into the tasks.

Can you lose the Gambling Bug?

I enjoy playing slots and visiting the casino as a whole. The ups and downs of always give me excitement and I enjoy the winnings when they come. I am also a logical person and realize the losses have outnumbered the wins. Case in point, This past weekend I won $2000 dollars on the three different slots and it came with only putting up $100 from my employment position. I thought about how hard I had to work the past two weeks to earn my $1500.00 dollars and how quickly I made $2000.00. I must say the casino does job on your perception and mind because I continued to play the day after ( not before I payed all of my bills and lost most of the winnings) In my mind I tried to justify the losses as I didn't have the money anyways but in reality if we add up the cost over the years I have played it did not put a dent in money spent in the casino?? I guess what I am saying is I realize that gambling may just be an activity that I enjoy and can be a participant and observer. I can accept that it is my hobby and am willing to spend money on this activity but not willing to lose my lively hood over it. Long story short set aside an entertainment budget and gambling budget, practice developing your intuition with games on the computer and smart phone, practice your skills with friends in card games, and enjoy yourself. Gambling is no sure bet but what is in life. You just try your hardest and hope for the best!

Can you lose the bug...I suspect not. We can hopefully get a grip on our habit and mitigate the risks and costs to fit within an an 'entertainment budget' But to be sure, many of us are at a real and dangerous risk of spiralling to oblivion.

Now, what's this nonsense about developing intuition for a game? 😀

You can develop intuition with gambling? I still can't teach a sure method at this point but I am working on it everyday for everyone to follow to increase their odds of winning! Its not nonsense its just something that can't be proven at this time. Just like you breath air but can't see it but its there right!

Maybe remove the triggers that induce regrettable actions. For me, I went to the track without smokes, used a nicotine lozenge and didn't feel the same feelings, for lack of better words. I'm not going to smoke at the casino anymore. I'll smoke elsewhere but not on the grounds.

Why no more Comps?

So lets talk about the lack of comps at the casinos lately! They have drastically toned down the offerings at the casinos in my local area. I am wondering is it due to the poor economy across the United States. The first thing that is going to take a hit is the entertainment venues such as movies, restaurants, and most definitely casinos. It have noticed it in the past two years that to get free play is like jumping through ten hoops and then they still are not giving away prizes as much as they used too. Before they would give free play $5.00 $10.00 $20.00 dollars if you came to the casino during a certain time. Now you have to earn a certain number of points on your players card before you can be consider for the free play which is from 12:00pm to 1:00pm on a Wednesday when everyone has to work????? (I'm exaggerating) but basically saying that they are not going to give you free chances without paying for them which is basically saying your buying a gift card for yourself?? You better off just using your money and just playing!! At least you don't have to handicapped the amount of money before you can actually earn valued cash to withdraw and take. Anyways I am still waiting on the infamous jackpot that I will receive. Until next time!

The whole industry is going away from just getting free stuff. Too many people take advantage of it.



You'll find more and more places offering free play or free food after you earn a certain amount of points that day.



With the advancements in player tracking and marketing (Bally and Konani player tracking are fabulous), rewarding after being earned is the future for small and medium play gamblers.

It is true, but also true people stop even being involved with players club. Lowered returns at machines paid for all the free play and stuff threefold. I abruptly stopped visiting casinos once my free play and benefits were cut and so did many people. Before I quit, I noticed a lot less people there, noticed nobody was winning either anymore, and I was one of the dumb ones who learned slower than the early escapees. People left there are tolerating the joint, not enjoying it, they're going to lose them as well I think. There might not be free lunches, but free lunches dont work if the casino won't let people believe the lunch is free.

Incogniso, you go **** that casino and show it who the boss is, for real. Tell them why you aren't coming back and don't. I did, the casino didn't care, I'm glad they didn't try keeping me as a customer. The Facebook killer Stevie Stevens kept going there and he is a dead killer now.

The Cost of going to Vegas!

I went to Vegas two times in the past three years. Both times is cost lest than $3000 for me and my wife to go with full round trip tickets and a hotel each time for four nights. First time in 2014 we stayed in Flamingo which was a great experience. The second time we stayed in Planet Hollywood which was not as good as experience but a decent hotel. We chose funjetvacations.com as our means for booking the trip. I am now searching again online and the price to now go to Vegas has jumped tremendously. Why would I pay $1000 dollars to fly to Vegas for one night when I have casinos in my local community in which I could spend the money? Two to three years ago $1000 dollars could get me a round trip ticket and four to five nights in Vegas? Vegas cannot charge these prices when the primary goal for most people is to spend money either on shows or in the casinos. The economy is has changed and I understand that things are increasing price due to inflation but come on.

Mostly it cost me around $3000-$5000.

helgeklinger I guess the better question is when do you go and how long do you stay. I usually go during the week because the prices are cheaper Monday through Friday and go for about four night and five days. It sounds like you go for about a week including the weekends for $5000 dollars. I wouldn't have went to Vegas that much if cost that much. Vegas used to be much cheaper. Something happening to the gambling Mecca they must be really losing money faster than I thought!!

So the new explosion of Casinos causing addictions.

The state of New York was given a grant in counseling field to deal with the increasing number of cases in gambling addictions. There has been an explosion of casinos in the state of New York the count is now at 22 Casinos in NY (some Racinos) in which five have opened in the last two years. I have been to at least 10 of these casinos. I believe the travel to Las Vegas is becoming less and less with the openings of these casinos in everyone's hometown.

I used to be a club goer but as I have gotten older and I am married I have not wanted to go to clubs with loud music or bars to just drink. The casinos have been a What I know about the environment of casinos is that they are nice alternatives to play games, stay out late( most casinos in NY don't close until 4:00 am or are 24 hours, have a drink, get something to eat, get a room (wink wink) and just an all in one playground for the adults especially since no one under the age of 18 can enter the casinos.

Gambling can be fun if you do it on occasion and spend wisely. I am looking forward to going back to Vegas soon. There is still no place like Las Vegas strip but next time I go to Vegas I would like to see downtown Vegas or Old Vegas to get a different feel.
