I mean if you play a whole lot the costs will outweigh the benefits. Most
of the return is negative from the get go, but some people may win the very first time they play. If you continue to play after that first win close to an infinite amount of times you will eventually begin to lose money. This is a classic Monte Carlo simulation type of thing. The more you play the closer to a normal distribution you will get with the center of the distribution being a negative value.
