I began to get involved in gambling for a long time. Until this time, I played relying only on luck. But recently an interesting thought came to me. Is it possible with the help of mathematics and statistics to raise the number of victories? What do you think about that?

It's useful to know when events are independent. If a card is drawn, that card cannot be drawn next if one deck is used and is less likely to be drawn next if multiple decks are used. Slot machines and roulette wheels are independent events. One of my cousins played roulette. He said that his friend thought that probabilities depended on prior spins. He said (without knowing the term "independent events") that he thought the probability was constant, and I told hime he was right.
