1 Aviator scam or not ?
1.4 Gambling from a psychological perspective
For several years, the Internet and social networks are buzzing with news about schemes to make money with the help of crash games – casino slots with unusual game mechanics, which makes the player think that he has control over the situation, and thanks to this he can consistently receive winnings. And if the winnings are stable, what is it but earning ?
Let’s understand this topic and put the nail in the coffin of the belief that casino games = earnings.
Aviator is a popular online gambling game based on a simple concept: an airplane takes off and the multiplier increases as it flies higher and higher. The player’s task is to cash out before the airplane flies off the screen, and their winnings are determined by the multiplier at the time of cashing out.
The game is easy to learn and use, but it can be surprisingly addictive. The excitement of watching the plane fly higher and higher, and the anticipation of whether or not you will cash out in time, is what keeps players coming back again and again.
Aviator is an online gambling game. What is gambling ? It is entertainment for adults who are aware that it is entertainment.
Gambling brings income to the creator of the game at the expense of losing players.
This is known to everyone.
Is gambling a source of income ? Definitely, for the creator of the game – YES.
For the player – NO.
BUT. Gambling is based on random number algorithms that allow you to win in them.
What does that mean?
It means that the creator of the game wants to receive a stable income.
How do you make it happen? By the regularity of the game.
How do you make sure that players play the game of chance regularly? Make them aware of the possibility of winning in gambling.
What is the probability of winning in gambling? Always different (from game to game), but it is never (if we do not take into account fraudulent schemes, we will talk about them further) is not equal to zero.
That is, conditionally, having collected losses from 5 players it can be taken by the sixth. Can you be that sixth player? Naturally.
Is it possible to predict that you will be the lucky one who will be the one who will take the winnings ? NO.
From an economic point of view, any game that does not bring income to its creator is unprofitable and eventually he will be ruined. You don’t believe that by creating a game he will let you ruin yourself, do you?
Not all players who gamble are unhealthy in terms of psychology.
The most important difference between a healthy gambler and ludomana (a person extremely dependent on gambling, believing that it is in his power guaranteed to win), is that he adequately perceives gambling as entertainment – he is willing to allocate a certain amount of money to get in return positive / negative emotions and this is where his relationship with gambling ends.
Remember childhood and amusement parks – you go with your parents to ride rides to get emotions of different spectrum, and you have no expectation that the cashier of the carousel at the end of the session will give you the money of all the people that rode with you. It’s the same with gambling. It’s the same amusement park. Only for grown-up people.
So what is winning, you ask? It’s just a tool to attract players, nothing more. Part of marketing, advertising, an event that will be talked about and spread through various channels of information dissemination. And the casino, an honest casino, pays for this tool regularly. Because if there are no winnings, there will be no players.
Naturally, a win, especially a big one, is a significant bonus in the game. And a certain part of the people, having received it, to dispose of at their discretion outside the casino.
But such people are few. Most will want to try their luck again, relying on chance, on “what if I get lucky again”, on “what if I can win more” and other hooks and loops of our mind, which, hooked on the dopamine needle caused by a big win, will push you in the direction of the game.
Ludomana’s attitude to gambling becomes the meaning of his life and the main and only source of income. Not just earnings. And the opportunity to get a large amount of money in a short period of time and without much effort. This idea absorbs him so much that he does not see reasonable arguments, both from his own brain and from others trying to get him out of this addiction.
Several factors can occur, as well as one of the above.
If you have the ability to reflect, have found one or more signs that influence and aggravate your game addiction, do not hurry to get upset. See a therapist if necessary.
The main problem that has been observed in recent years, with the development and lowering the cost of using mobile Internet even where it was not before (countries in Africa, remote areas of developing countries on all continents) is an unfair way to attract new players in casinos.
And such slots with a new, completely non-standard game mechanics, such as Aviator, Lucky Jet only exacerbated this situation.
So, the main problem is that unscrupulous casinos and those who are engaged in their advertising on the Internet (advertising agencies, famous bloggers, streamers, singers with their mouths, sereblyadi, affiliate managers, etc.) use the psychological technique of substitution of concepts (gaslihting), when one thing is given for something else.
For example, you see a crocodile in front of you, but they try to convince you that it is an elephant. Moreover, they make special programs on this topic, blogs, give arguments, do it regularly, and also say that if you believe that it is really an elephant, your life will change dramatically for the better. And at some point, even if at the beginning you thought you were being deceived, you start to believe that it is really an elephant.
The same analogy can prove to you that white is black and vice versa.
So, as far as our games are concerned, dishonest people are telling you – friend, this is not entertainment or a merry-go-round ride.
This is a real opportunity to make money. All the time. A lot. A lot.
Sounds like fun, doesn’t it? We are all human beings, we all have weaknesses that try to be pushed in this way.
Someone has a difficult situation in life and wants to solve their current financial problems in this way, and someone just wants to get rich instantly and not have to go to that disgusting office with those hateful coworkers day after day, year after year. It’s different for everybody.
Well here they are trying to sell you a merry-go-round ride for your own money, as an incredible way that the cashier after every ride you take on a merry-go-round full of people just like you will on a regular basis give you even more than you paid for the ride ticket.
Did you introduce the owner of the merry-go-round? He has spent money on it, paid rent, advertising, pays the cashier’s salary and other employees to keep the carousel spinning day in and day out and bringing him money. Thanks to you, as the person bringing him his money. And you are not listed in this economic model as an expense item.
So what makes you think that you will be paid money at an amusement park if you go there to ride and not to work as a cashier?
There are several ways to cheat players who are led to believe that their winnings can become as regular as sunrise. Let’s break down just a few of them, which have a large number of variations and combinations.
Whatever the winnings may look like in your eyes, if you are told that they are 100%, you can immediately determine that they are trying to cheat you out of your money.
These are just the most popular schemes in recent times, which the Internet is full of, attracting more and more gamblers who believe that they can earn. There are, of course, many more, social engineering knows no bounds, so you need to be alert to offers of quick and easy money online, especially when you have a predisposition to gambling addiction.
From the point of view of the legal field Aviator is an original gambling game. And there is no scam in it.
Another thing that you are presented this game and its like, as a way of guaranteed enrichment and earnings, which is not.
Hence the loss of money, the frustration, the anger, the conclusion that you were cheated, not because you believed the switch, but because the game itself is a cheat.
It is entertainment for money. Like the carousel at the amusement park in your childhood. You simply believed at some point that the cashier would give you money on the way out.
We hope that this article has shed some light on how social engineering techniques are used, and this will protect you from losing money. Good luck!
