Math Movie Night: Probability and Gambling

This week we talked about probability (specifically Bayes’ theorem) and how it could help you in everyday life. What if I told you that probability could even make you a better gambler?

Probability and gambling have always had a symbiotic relationship; studies of gambling improve probability, and probability improves the ability of people to gamble. Even if you aren’t a gambler at heart, very similar mechanics permeate many types of games today, making it an interesting study.

Without further ado, our feature presentation: How Science is Taking the Luck Out of Gambling!
