Do you people not know that micowaving someone has the same effect. Research it.


You think microwaving could be used to fry peoples good fortune away from them?

One of the owners of the casino was a relatively young guy with a brilliant mind for math, and even he was a firm believer in rolls & streaks on both sides of the table. He had a somewhat mathematical explanation for it though.

What was really interesting, on a side note, was one of the books he gave me to read on the mathematics of the house. This particular book showed how the sophisticated mathematics of the insurance agencies actuarial tables was basically the same math used by the casinos.

So basically big insurance is the House and the House always wins

What is stopping the so called "bad luck vibe" being against the Casino, so the bloke wins even more?

And Im no smarter because of this thread. Some say there are coolers some say there are not. I guess a Casino would not admit if there were.

OK, this is a little off topic, but a few years ago we were at a casino in Mississippi and I walked over to a slot machine and there was a spider crawling around in the coin tray and I put in a quarter and won $200.00. It was really cool.

I used to be a "dummy" or "Prop player" at Casino Marysville.. They would pay me to play and take your money and then split it with me; while paying me hourly.. So no matter what, i made money, but i would make the casino a lot of money it didn't even lose..

It was a sweet gig, but i didn't cause any misfortune other than the countless times i played like a donkey and won because i wasn't playing with my money..

That casino didn't have a Cooler but they did have dealers that they would put in when someone was on a hot streak.. I think if the player knew the dealer being put in was a cooler it would effect him, but it's psychological and not paranormal..

Gamblers are EXTREMELY superstitious, but it works to our advantage when we are wearing all of our lucky clothes and are getting good cards, because then we KNOW it's the lucky boxers and helps us play better.. It's like how Micheal Jordan would wear brand new sneakers during every game, because new sneakers gave him confidence...

I see streaks at the holdem and Omaha tables that can boggle your mind and make you wish for a "cooler"

Wow...thanks for sharing! Courageous of you to share because you probably signed a paper saying you are not allowed to tell.

I also heard a Rumor that, decades ago, the Nevada gaming Commission banned such practices and that ever since then Casinos are using Coolers secretly.

If Coolers are real I suppose that when Millions and Billions of Dollars are involved, what is normally regarded as "superstitious" becomes very real and very important.

But it is really hard to find any information on this. Anybody out there know more?





Went to Vegas last April... I witnessed it first hand with a Black Jack Dealer... Asian Lady took over the table and cooled it down like it was no problem.

I asked the cab drivers in Vegas about this and they said casinos do this for some reason. I don't understand it, it's like Black magic or something.

A friend of mine used to work in small scale casino as a hostess. She says they never used coolers for the following reasons:

1. There casino is not big
2. The odds are always stacked against gamblers
3. If someone is on a winning streak, it is house policy to comp the gambler with a free stay at the hotel, free suppers etc...and they usually pour all their winnings back into the Casino and hotel. In the end the house wins

A little off topic, but do think someone has "cooled" off Tiger Woods, whether by having some goon nearby or maybe through some artificial means? I figured he would have regained most of his game by now, but now he just looks like a regular dude playing out there.

I do recall once on a gambling boat that I felt as though water droplets were sprinkled
on me however I could not find the source. I looked around to see where it was coming
from (I was walking down the corridor leading from the rooms to the docking area of
the boat). At first I thought it was the fire sprinklers that was leaking or something however
that was not the source. Very strange indeed. Needless to say, I never won while there.

No, it was all legit.. Prop Players are pretty common in Hold 'em..

They normally just liven up the game, turn a four player game into a five player.. It gets the fish to join the game


I did get some LUCKY streaks and even hit the bad beat jackpot but since i was an "employee" i didn't get it.. Maybe they were using black magic on me, and i didn't even notice lol

You should understand what is happening and how it works.

Sports teams microwave there opponants as they know it works.

If casino want a cheap way to stop people winning, just microwave them. Its also invisible, so pretty undetectable too.

Wouldn't that also cool the Casino, though?

And Tiger loses at Chevron by choking on a 4 shot lead.

Think he still doesn't have a cooler somewhere in the crowd?

Was this in Vegas? or Atlantic City? or somewhere else?
There is strict oversight in AC from the casino control commmisson and the DGE, State Police.
There is always a CCC person and an agent in house typically all the time. In addition you had the investigators
which were us. We investigated everything and then there is surveillance who are constantly looking for suspicous activity and are required to keep video for certain period of time. On top of this they are audited by CCC/ DGE. Multiple layers of security, is it perfect, nope. Do dealers steal, Yep. Are there theft teams, Yep. Do they get caught, Yep. Do they serve time, Yes/No. It was a fun job when I did it but there was no money
