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 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!
Nice touch. Thanks for sharing
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.
Im afraid no.
i have experienced this kind of bug. it was really irritating
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.
truth has been spoken
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!!
