This is the list of the last 10 games you have played:

#467850790 - 3p game - You won, premium player finished last.
#467487569 - 3p game - A non premium player won, premium player finished 2nd, you finished last.
#467094303 - 3p game - Premium player won, you finished 2nd.
#467097260 - 2p game - You won, premium player lost.
#467066032 - 3p game - Premium player won, you finished 2nd.
#467051599 - 3p game - A non premium player won, premium player finished 2nd, you finished last.
#466675962 - 3p game - You won, premium player finished last.
#466664743 - 3p game - A non premium player won, you finished 2nd and premium player finished last.
#466665550 - 3p game - You won against TWO premium players.
#466538311 - 2p game - You won, premium player lost.

Out of these 10 games, there's only 2 victories by premium players.
(bold= victory of a non premium player, italics= premium player victory, underscore= premium player finishing last)

Also, keep in mind you will always be matched up with premium players because Can't Stop is a premium game and you need a premium player to create a table. You just have confirmation bias when the stats just can't lie. This game is a push-your-luck game so of course, there will be good rounds and bad rounds.

I won 2 season as a "free" player. Then upgraded and haven't won a season yet!
I have to wonder if you're actually just a sore loser.
Excellent demonstration ! :)

Stats and facts don't matter if you "feel" something is right!

In seriousness, we should all learn a bit about biases, and how they affect our thinking!

My win rate with my wife is about 50/50.

I'm a Premium player and she's a free player.

This is nonsense.

She's obviously a much better player than you, because you're getting better rolls :D
