After that night I have never allowed myself to ever play any casino games online again. Without the money or chips in your hand it is easy to get carried away like it is monopoly money. Sorry man, I know how you feel.
    This is true,its basically just numbers on a computer screen.

    Another problem is when a book plays games and takes forever to pay you . You end up getting frustrated and blowing what is in there in the Casino which is what they want.

    Even the Live is a joke especially whoever contracts with the one at Youwager. It gets really bad there. I have never seen so many times the dealer gets a face card . The rare times i get a 20 (Most hands will be between 12-17 ) i almost always push or lose to a 21. Then these people come on that bet insane amounts on 1 hand . I have actually seen $15000 bet on 1 hand on a $5000 max table. Of course they always win but i cannot get a 20 to save my life in 20 hands. Even though it is live though the cards are still virtual . Because i have seen cards that should have been removed from the previous hand being over but they are still there. Then you get the new cards and you have all these cards all over the place . The dealer does not see them i think but i did. Maybe if there were actual people playing at the table you can see i would have more faith in it.
    Although i did a nice roulette hit(I never play in there once in a blue moon)so maybe they felt no need to rig it. I went in ,put $25 on a single number just for the hell of it. And Hit for $900 lol. I think the only reason i hit was because they figure the odds of hitting a single number are slim and i never play Roulette so why rig it. I took 1 spin ,hit for $900, and got out .
    I have a roulette system that works well and won't kill ya, it's based on covering 2/3 of the columns or rows.
    Anyway, I also have another roulette style for the inside which nobody talks about.
    Short story version, a high school friend became a croupier at a casino.
    The mistake virtually all inside players make is tracking numbers. The numbers on the table
    are not laid in relationship to the wheel. Only pay attn to the wheel. Break the wheel down
    into sections. Aim for the sections the croupier most consistently lands on. Players are looking
    at the table when they should be looking at the wheel.
    The croupiers get bored and play games with the wheel. Some of them aim for numbers and areas.
    This friend told us where she would aim for. 2+2=4.

    Only way you will survive in this game is discipline.

    Whether it's online casino, betting Philipino basketball at 4 in the morning, action betting on soccer during the day because you can't wait for your real bets to start, the reasons the books provide all these options is to give you more ways to lose your money.

    My advice is stick to what you know you are good at. Blackjack, roulette, baccarat etc. have house edge built into the rules. In sports the house edge is built into the price because it's possible to be as sharp as the book. It gives you the best chances of winning if you do your homework.

    i was already up around 20k on the year. My strategy was betting a $1,000 straight bet and $500 parlay it was a 8 teamer that day with two teams at +140. there is some screenshots floating around the forum somewhere.

    regardless if your a $5.00 or $500 bettor. Bound to lose it all if you have no goal in mind and no discipline.

    Thanks for all the comments guys. I'm glad noone has been too negative.
    It's good to know guys have been in the same shoes.

    Someone touched on something about how "winning 100k isn't enough, We'd just try to win 100k more".
    Amazing. I always ask myself what was my "get out" point?
    There was multiple times last night where my balance touched $800... But I kept going. I said maybe I can get lucky and hit $1000.
    (I was playing slots.. So dumb).
    But instead I worked it down, it'd touch $400 and I'd say well maybe I can get it back to $600 and I'll get out. It'd hit that $600 and I'm like oh shit in getting hot.... And eventually I had it down to $100 and just didn't stop spinning. It's a crazy addiction.
    I've been addicted to pain pills before, I think this is more harmful.
    Im fine when I sport bet, I control myself and I (usually) win.
    But these fukkin slots and table games are horrid.

    I will take some time off.... And try to get over this (although its hard right now because I was ready to make a run to over $1000).

    Thanks for the comments guys.

    Having a GOAL is a major thing..
    And then with that goal has to be patience.
    I always shoot for turning $200 into $2000 during college basketball.
    I was halfway there and LOST patience for whatever fukkin reason and tried to quickly make a jump. Doesn't work that way.
    Gambling is a jog, not a sprint.

    Some people can Gamble for decades and still not pace themselves.

    Thats one school of thought. If you have less than $500 it might not be worth grinding it out. Bet all in and try to double your bankroll instantly.

    Everyone should do this. You WILL lose. If you want kicks go play fake money until you get board; it will fix the itch that usually only last 5 minutes, and will be become nothing compared to the boredom of betting fake money, which will allow you to do other things in life.

    Funny you said that i barely play it anymore but i used to i think play possibly what you are talking about . I used to play the bottom 2 rows of each line of numbers. That gives you almost a 66% advantage a bit less if you add in the Green 0s but still good odds. You would win basically Half of whatever you bet so if you put $100 on each you risk $200 but would net $100. I would basically take larger shots like that. I figure the % is in your favor so i took big shots and then would stop .

    It's a good choice to take sometime off, last thing you need to do is deposit more and force plays that you wouldn't normally make. This will just end up putting you deeper and be even more depressed especially if it is going to affect paying bills, Christmas, and your family life. We have all mishandled gambling at some point, like others have said just don't let one mistake multiply and learn from the past. That's the great thing about sbr, you can use bet points to play contests and bet on sbr sportsbook while you let this experience pass. Good luck to you Ham, merry Christmas to you and your family.

    Go fukk yourself you fukkin bitch.

    Someone always has to be a wise ass and act like a big roller.

    It was less about the amount of money and more about the fact that it was a bankroll I built up with great betting. But I wouldn't expect you to understand that with a fatdikk in your ear.
