I heard many a rumour that casinos offer new players what is known
as Promotional or Beginners Luck.
And with new casino games that get introduced you also get extra luck

For me that's a big NO. I've only ever won once on my first session at a casino. I dont think they payout more to new players. Besides they wouldnt be random if they did.

I agree with mrmark21 - casinos don't do this.

However, I think there is a 'perception' issue here that leads some people to believe that they are getting beginners luck or some kind of promotional push. I suspect that, when playing a new casino for the first time, your focus is not 100% on the game but on the look and feel of the new casino, the lobby, the bonuses, etc. Consequently, when you do hit a win it feels like its come far more quickly than it would if you were playing at somewhere you've been playing for years.

Just an idea. No real psychological evidence to back it up but it kinda feels like there might be something in it.

The little man sits behind a monitor, eagerly deleting losing spins before you see them, until a winning random number is generated, which he lets through to your game. Therefore when you are new and under the control of the little man, you can't lose and always end up cashing out. You then come back and deposit more, whereupon he is hoiked out of his chair by his evil bigger brother, who proceeds to do the opposite, eagerly preventing winning RN's and only letting losing ones through to your game. This happens until you are down at least 3 x your initial cashout, and then your account is left unmonitored and in the hands of the RN gods. This ensures every customer loses the correct amount eventually.

Oh it's absolutely real.

I've won big on every single first deposit I've ever made. Actually, it's why I only make one deposit at every casino....I can't lose.

I am one step ahead of you. I only take no-deposit bonuses and run after cashing out. I win the max I am entitled to you each time without depositing so its definitely fact.

I'm inclined to believe that it is marely an urban legend to be honest if it was
contrary people would be knocking them silly left right and center.
Managed to come across a place at one point that sort of helped me understand
just how random things are ****://wizardofodds.com/ I would say its most probably
just a myth.

I'm glad they went that route. I used to pee myself when they just sent a goon to my house to stand behind me and say ' you dint see dat' and crack his knuckles while a girl in a lab coat applied white out to the 5th winning symbol on my monitor.

You too? Except for me it was the girl cracking her knuckles, while the goon cackled and removed that all important winning symbol. Strangely, he used to keeping saying this:
