$200 left to gamble with -- Advice needed!

    (This discussion may make KK feel a bit faint. If so, I apologize. :D )

    Without going into too much whining about how my luck has turned sour, I've only got $200 left in NETeller. Assume I will not deposit any of my own funds to plump the balance up, so this is it -- I'm down to the nitty gritty. Put yourself in my shoes for a moment.

    What is your best advice for getting the most out of that $200? Do I risk a full quarter of my remaining funds on a match bonus (and the WR that goes with it) at 32Red? Do I deposit big ($100 or $200) at an MG or RTG casino or maybe Global Player and play VP? Do I stick with small deposits ($25) and keep my bets low --playing nickel VP? Deposit $50 and set autoplay for .45 on Ladies Nite?

    This $200.00 seems rather critical for you. If so, then you left the most important option out! Don't gamble with it!

    Ahhh... but you see, it is critical because it is the last of my gambling funds! I only gamble with recycled funds (winnings). Haven't used any money from my own pockets and prefer not to start now.

    Mousey, I get what you are saying. I've been there. When we all first started gambling online we had to fund our accounts. It is always better not to go back into our 'real' money and re-fund. I think some may be thinking that you cannot afford to gamble and hence should probably put the money back into your bank. My advice would be to put it at 32Red and get the bonus. I always do well with that. Then when you get up to $400 take $200 out and there you are, some to play and some to keep. Good luck!

    Hey Mousey, this is what's left of the money you've been "recycling" for the last two years right? I would do exactly as Venetian said, go for the 32Red $50 monthly match and see what happens. Still leaves you $150 to try another option to rebuild your Neteller account, and who knows....you may even get lucky. That's what I would do, but I'm not the wisest gambler either, lol. Good luck and let us know how you make out. :)

    I'm even more spoilt than that, Pina -- I've been 'recycling' for closer to 3 years. LOL


    Venetian... Yep, I started back when it was much easier to build your bankroll using bonuses. The funds in NETeller came from gambling and are meant for gambling. I could take it out, put it in the bank ... and then what? I'd just spend it on something trivial -- jewelry probably. LOL Believe me, if this money were needed for household expenses or whatever, it sure wouldn't be in NETeller in the first place.

    Caruso ... Objectives? Good question... I would like to make these funds last as long as possible (and still put them in play). I would like the best chance possible to increase my balance.

    There are a lot of bonuses out there (if you haven't played them all yet), some that allow you to cash in your winnings without meeting the full WR (if you are worried about that).

    I would pick some of those and play video poker to get back on my feet. Set some reasonable targets and cash out when you hit. At the very least you will get a good run for your money.

    Stay away from slots bonuses in this spot, the WR will eat you alive.

    Also look for the money-back offers for no risk gambling.

    You may want to try (if you haven't already) the Casino Classic, Captain Cooks, or 7 Sultans "free minutes" play where you get to transfer up to $200 in free-minutes "winnings" as a bonus in real play. All you have to do is deposit $20 to transfer the "winnings" over to the real account and you have up to $220 to play with on only $20 of your own money. Of course, there is wagering requirements depending on what you play in the real account. I got over $650 in cashable money this way from Casino Classic. I wasn't able to repeat at Captain Cooks or 7 Sultans because the Thunderstruck slot just didn't favor me like it did at Casino Classic. The "free-minutes" version of blackjack and baccarat had limited the maximum bet to just $5!! so I was forced to play slots.

    I have a suggestion you may not care for but here goes. Like you, I've also been playing from the same small roll for about two years. However, I grind out bonuses at poker rooms. Anyway, I keep a diary of my sessions. Last year I have nothing but bad beat entries for June, July, and August. You know, flopped set of Aces, sucker backs into a flush, sucker hits gut shot on the river, exc. So, I quite playing for two months. I started again in Nov. and have more than doubled up since. Maybe a good long vacation will help you too. And besides, you'll feel much better knowing that money is in Neteller for the next month or two rather than losing it flat out.

    Good luck either way,

    In the same boat...

    Hey Mousey, I have recently been in the same boat, except I broke down and funded my account (justified it because I had taken some nice profits when I was on a "hot" streak awhile ago- quite awhile ago now that I think of it!!) In any case, one suggestion I have for you is to be careful opening too many new accounts looking for the match bonuses. Even some reputable places find ways to delay paying you your winnings, which is frustrating at best and may force you to fund your account while you wait, at worse. For example, I recently turned a $100 deposit at Aus Vegas into a $200 win (OK, it WAS more, but I went down to $200) Anyway, when I went to cash out, they asked for the old identification stuff. Claimed they didn't get my email (which happens) & then I didn't get their email saying I was approved, but needed to enter a code online to be able to withdraw. (See the time ticking??!!) Finally got this straightened out and figured, finally, I can have this entered into my Neteller account. NO WAY. The first withdrawl must be sent by checque (which may take 2-4 weeks) and THEN you can be upgraded to Neteller withdrawl status. Others may request you wait for your PIN NUMBER, which may allow you to withdraw quickly in the future, but not very quickly if you are replenishing your account! SO, unless you WANT to take a break for awhile, make sure you ask how quickly you can receive winnings on your FIRST withdrawl if you end up going "bonus hunting'!!:eek:

    Yeah I am going thru that with Lasseters. Plus, I think they charge $5 for the withdrawal. They blame all inconveniences on their regulating agency. I wish I had read the t&c's more carefully before playing, because it was not worth it.

    But in general, bonuses are strong way to jumpstart your bankroll. Otherwise it is just pure luck.

    Lassetters & Aus Vegas-
    Owned by the same outfit, I think. I forgot about the $5 fee, but that was the same. thanks for reminding me!

    As far as games in general, I still find video poker a little better chance to actually come out ahead, but it's all a gamble!:D

    That would be a great suggestion.....

    Why would that be???
    Do they try to hide it because more people use neteller, I have never heard of a rule like that.
