## Main Question or Discussion Point

I know that when flipping a coin for example with each flip you have a 50/50 chance of getting heads or tails. Each flip has nothing to do with the one before. This goes with any random number picking method. Like they say slot machines cannot be ready to hit (payoff). Isnt there though a probability of it hitting? Or like flipping a coin, even though it is 50/50 chance of heads or tails. It wont always land on say heads. After so many times of it being heads in a row. It seems that it would eventually have to be tails. The more times of it being heads in a row seems would increase the chances of it landing on tails. Like what is the maximum times a coin has been flipped and landed on the same side? Eventually it has to (or will) land on the other side. Like a slot machine can't (wont) not hit forever. After so many times of it not hitting. It will eventually hit. Or if you were rolling a 6 sided die what is the max number of times you would have to roll it to finally hit all 6 numbers? Is there an equation for figuring out probabilities like this?
