Don't tell me this is just a coincidence

Featured Comment

Posted (edited)

I just played Limbo. I was just trowing money away on autoplay with 900x target to try my luck. Then after a while of not hitting anything I decided to change the target to 1.20x and boom the next roll came up with 4131.71 x. 

LIMBO: 6,622,923,736

As i said to a comment on chartbet topic from stake 1.0 the final game in my opinion doesnt count if it goes 900x or 1000000x when you withdraw earlier.its from the gae to make gamblers and game ethistic.so dont think its your luck its only game strategy to make players want to play more and more

Well it could very well just be bad luck in timing I guess. If you continued you might just have hit the  high multiplier you were looking for.

Unfortunately such things happen. It's like in real life when you wait for a person all day, and he does not come. And you leave without waiting, and then you find out that he appeared right after you left. I think this is a coincidence and nothing more. You need to be patient and not go away until you get what you want.

Bro it's just a coincidence, I was hunting 1200x before in limbo for like 900 bets, and then hit stop autobet, and that very bet, before it stopped, it hit.

It was the opposite of rig, as if rig was making me win! I couldn't believe it , same kind of surpise you felt, but on the good side.

I think these strange results will happen from time to time, and they just stand out because we notice them, I guess you probably bet a tonne before, and everything seemed normal, but it's just these odd results we notice.

Sometimes I felt the bets were rigged I admit, especially when increase my bet and hit some losses. But then if you properly look into provably fair, and spend just a couple of hours studying it, (on bitcointalk there is a good thread which links to an explanation here: 

https://dicesites.com/provably-fair )

you realize it's impossible for Stake to cheat, literally impossible, because they keep the same server seed until we change it, and we can change our client seed, after we've been given the hashed server seed.

Also stake has the house edge so they "win" every bet anyway, my friend explained before, that because of that it doesn't make sense for a site to rig. Because they will get caught. Then the site is screwed. Those that do dont last long, but primedice has been around for years and stake a while now as well. If there was anything underhand going on, it would have been spotted by some clever people, and outed, like it has been before with other less reputable sites.

I really recommend that article I linked above. It made me realise once and for all, on a true provably fair site , where you know hashed server seed in advance and can make your own client seed, and the process the site used for how they use those to calculate bets is public, it's literally impossible for them to cheat, and for your bet to still verify (which you can do for everyone of your bets, by asking for server seed, after you have finished betting).

Also this is a good thread, the bitcointalk one I mentioned.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1927242.0

I know how you feel bro! I used to think some of my bets were rigged because seems I get unlucky in certain ways , but once you understand provably fair, it helps give you peace of mind. 💸

That's why you should always listen to this phrase when gambling '' Never give up''. I know there was a real story about a person that has worked on a gold mine for a few years and after a very long time of working he decided to stop thinking there was nothing there. He sold the mine to someone else and guess what? A few meters below that person found the gold mine worth millions of dollars. The first person worked so hard but decided to give up too early and he lost a fortune because of that.

I find that whenever I give up on a big mult hunt like you did, it means that I am just about to hit that mult. 

Generally, if you are going to hunt a big number, you have to carry enough of a bankroll to be willing to see exactly how long it will take to hit. 

This is hard to do, as we watch those satoshis dwindle! 

Best advice I can give, is to have a set number of tries you are willing to do - or resign yourself to doing a big hunt no matter how long it takes! :)

Cause if you knew you'd win.....you wouldn't be gambling.

To put it objectively, this is how luck can work - similar to how we can get an equally high multiplier on our first roll! 

Nonetheless, I can understand how you would think it’s rigged as that has happened many times to me before (lowering bet and next few rolls or even the next roll the hits comes).

You need to remember it’s gambling so anything can happen! 😃

thats just how the cookie crumbles......thats the point of the game though....i mean the higher your multiplier the harder its gonna be to hit .......sooo of course if your multiplier is 9000x its gonna be difficult and as you move your multiplier down to lets say 2x well your gonna get a higher multiplier outcome because its not much of a win.....

Yeah, it is just a coincidence :D Simple as that! Change the seed and increase the nonce progressively till you get to your nonce and note whether you have hit it the 900x payout in the very next nonce. You'll see that it is in fact just a coincidence.

It's called murphy's law :)

It states that something happens when you don't expect it to, but it does not when you do . XD

most gambling sites and casinos rely on this to take effect for their gamblers to lose. Expecting a high reward, and not getting it while hunting for it, and getting it while prerolling.

You better get used to this if you're a real gambler. Haha

Lol that is literally the definistion of the luck if you recorded that that would have been fun to watch xD. Just a bad luck day try changing seeds every minute until you hit your goal . Good luck !

I would also have to agree that it is just coincidence.  I feel you pain, as similar things have happened to me on other games as well.  But I have been on both ends of it too.  Like mentioned above, after a long red streak I've decided to stop the auto bet and BOOM, your number hits on the last roll before it stops.  That's the name of the game in gambling... we just seem to remember the "bad beats" more than the ones that turn out well, kind of like poker...

Someone i know once said in chat that we should always see the next roll as a green whenever we are hunting big payout, because we would never know when its going to drop!

i think it was just a shiti coincidence xD like rly rly shiti one 
it happened to me before as well chasing 1000x changing to 10x for couple of games and boom it hits xD 
on keno as well adding one more number instead of playing how i am usally and it hits like 67x and it could be 400x but sometimes on keno i am removing 1 number and i am hitting 400 xD so i think you just had a bad luck 
if u ask me if u are chasing something dont change it till u hit it better rip now deposit later hit it with raising bet then chasing the stuff and missing the shit
