There’s something inexplicably magical about casinos. Have you ever passed by a neon sign in a big city and stared at the glimmering, effulgent lights shining into the sky? Even though the house always wins (and casinos don’t even bother to hide that fact), there’s something piercingly beautiful about them. Nights out in Las Vegas come to mind, Caesar’s Palace in full swing on a Friday night, crowds of euphoric people, yachts, fireworks reflecting in the waterfalls… Anyway, the theory of probability states the chances of you winning big are the same as in a coin toss: 50%. So maybe all it would take is one coin toss but, in that case, would you still place your bet?
