Default Yes, but ...

If you actually study statistics, you will know there's a phenomenon called "gambler's ruin" that says there's always a possibility that you will lose enough times in succession to "go broke."
At at 50-50 relationship that means there is 1-in-1024 chance of experiencing 10 losses in a row.

I have experienced more than 10 losses in a row and more than 10 wins in a row. No strategy can prevent the eventuality of losing everything on occasion.

Just got the "gambling god" title.
That "lost vegassi spirit" (win 20 times in a row), is proving to be quite elusive.

Hitting Gamble, with 1 gold, every 2-3 or so seconds. No luck yet,. but Ill get it eventually :P

I calculated that you will have to gamble for whole 12 days, in order to have decent chance of winning 20 times in a row :-) Good luck and have fun :-)

Well, In theory I "could" (quite easily) set DTLogger to automated gamble mode and leave it auto clicking every 3 seconds while I'm at work or sleeping, but I doubt that would go down well with the creators of the game :P

I like to at least be "at the keyboard" when I start any automated process, just in case I run into unexpected server results or find a new trophy.

And even then,. 12 days,. wtf. That is one rare title.
If the creators are fine with it, I can add the feature to a next release,. but I kind of doubt they would be.

Gambling God: I think that's for a 10 win winning streak.

If you want to see, that it is really possible to win 1 billion gold, look here: http://forums.dragontavern.com/showthread.php?t=887

And is there any achievement for losing 20 times in a row? If there is, I know a funny way to get it:
1. You need to have at last 1,100,000 gold. Then you start gambling with 1 gold
2. If you lose, you will gamble with 2* lost gold
3. Repeat 2. until you win or lost all money

Now you either win 1 gold or lose 20 times in a row and get an achievement Too bad it's only 1 gold, I know.

But if you have more gold, you can start with larger sum.
2,100,000: 2
4,200,000: 4
8,400,000: 8
...

If you want to know it exactly, you can use this formula for OOO or Excel:
=(LOG(A1;2)-20)*2
and put your gold in A1

But sorry bbr, I don't have any funny way to get Vegassi spirit.

Work out the rhythm with a few gold coins and when you are losing too much start betting high.

I had a 22 loss streak.

I had lost over 500,000,000.


Here is the thread. I had over 1,000,000,000 Gold and started losing. I was doing really terrible, I was losing, what seemed like, 90% of the time, so I fiqured I'd do some small bets and flush out my 'losing'.

I eventually lost it all with help of my final 22 loss streak which started with a 100 Gold bet.



I raged and deleted my character.


EDIT:I believe I had maxed out my "Gold Used" or whatever it was. I believe a unsigned 32 integer was used and the max gold displayed was 4,294,967,295.

I messaged the developer and it got changed to a 64bit integer.
