Abstract: It is possible to have two games that are losing when played in isolation but that, because of some form of feedback, produce a winning game when played alternately or even in a random mixture. This effect is known as Parrondo's paradox. Quantum mechanics provides novel methods of combining two games through interference and entanglement. Two models of quantum Parrondo's games have been published and these are reviewed here. We speculate on a model of a quantum Parrondo's game using entanglement. Such games could find a use in the development of algorithms for quantum computers.
