The “Gambler’s Fallacy” Strategy for Playing Craps
Many craps players tend to forget previous dice rolls do not influence the outcomes of the throws that are to follow. Often players fall prey to the so-called “Gambler’s fallacy”, believing that if a given dice combination, say Yo-leven, has been rolled prior to a Deuce for example, another Deuce will be rolled the next time the dice total adds up to a Yo. Unfortunately, there is no such thing as dice are not mathematically proven to follow any predictable pattern.
Players tend to apply this strategy to single bets only. It is said that if one observes closely the shooter’s hand and the manner in which one particular person throws the dice, it is possible to discern a pattern as some people’s throws might increase the chances of specific dice rolls.
