    guys please disable the CASINO at your online books

    was doing ok today, would go to bed happy all things considered if i didn't burn through $1000 in no time playing blackjack at the ONE goddamm book i didn't have the casino disabled.

    so please take my advice and don't burn through winnings or funds that you want to use on sports, it sucks

    sad thing is i have probably lost that much 100 times over on casino stupidity over the last 15 years, learn from my dumbassishness

    I think we all have those types of stories...

    Back when I first started gambling for more than 20 bucks with my friends, I actually pretended to be my dad at 16 so I could play on partypoker...

    I turned a 500 dollar deposit into like 3500 playing poker in a couple of weeks and was so happy. Spent a night playing black jack, well, more like 30 minutes and lost it all.

    They know they can cheat badly with their casinos so why wouldn't they?

    yeah it seems on sports you at least have a fighting chance. not that i haven't won in online casinos, but it seems like you win $100 quickly and stop or lose $1000 by chasing.

    I don' touch them anymore. A few years ago when I first started playing online I built up a $3800 balance betting NBA on a $200 deposit at a sportsbook. Long story short I ventured into the casino and proceeded to wipe out my entire balance in about 45 minutes. Funny how the most longshot instances can happen in the books favor when playing in their online casinos. Lesson learned. Online casinos are for dumb suckers.

    Yeah I hope he hasn't lost $1000 100 times, although now that i think about it... I would guess my online casino losses were at least 10K... pathetic. Cutting into sports profits big time.

    Not all books allow you to keep your sports but block your casino. Unfortunately.

    I think that is a big sign you need a new book. The only book I've ever had that refused to block the casino I never placed another bet with them.

    Milwaukee mike sorry for your loss. I lost about 200. Chickens don't bet too much. I went to a real casino wasted played roulette martingale with 30 bucks. Won 5 and left. No edge no bet.

    Just remember that they are nothing more than scams when you consider venturing to the online casino.
    your not gonna get a fair chance. That is a fact.

    I'm the retard who thought doing Martingale on roulette while only playing to win 5 units (betting 1 at a time) was a good idea. Up a couple hundred the first 2 days, lost about $600 the third. Apparently getting black or green 11 straight times can happen. I learned my lesson.

    What is worst online casinos or handicappers changing their record? In the last you lose twice. To the Handicapper and to the book. I fell for it a few times.

    funny how whenever you do a martingale with an online casino the opposite of your bet will mysteriously go on a run. What are the odds of 10 reds in a row anyway. Compound that with of course the player being on black and throw in that it will happen at an amazingly high rate if your martingaling an online casino. Seriously it's happened so many times. Simply fascinating how this will happen in the books favor. Fascinating.

    Stick with SBR's casino. At least you are assured a fair game.

    Plus you can win cool stuff during promos. Look for another iPad3 to be givenaway during the NCAA tourney.

    Clear out all your cookies/ cache before playing. I play mostly for fun at my book.
    You can learn a lot from doing that. I find it funny as soon as I put in a big bet
    it loses. The best I found is to hit it hard right from the start and quit. Time is not
    your friend is any game.
