Dollars & Sense Guide

What affects your cost of play? It’s the choices you make, like how much you bet, how often you bet and the amount of time you spend playing any one game. Other factors like the house advantage (set by the casino) and randomness also have an impact.

Remember, in the short term you may lose more than the average or sometimes win money in a single gambling session. But the longer you play, the more likely it is that losses will outnumber wins.
