    I did not play much in 3 Dice as of lately (was low on funds), and finally decided to give it another try today, to see if my lousy luck has changed for the better.
    Alas... I do not know what I want to do more - to kill Enzo or to kill myself :rolleyes: 4 deposits, totalling of EUR1700 gone in about an hour. Here are the stats I requested and received:

    Game In Out Bets Average Bets Percentage
    Poker_new 471 417 269 1.75 88.61%
    FortuneFalls 3123 1769 811 3.85 56.66%
    BlackJack_Classic 1173 849 81 14.48 72.38%

    It just hurts so bad....

    A try at 1700 Euros? Would have been much better depositing 170 Euros just for testing the waters.

    Sorry to hear that, I think it might be better to stop playing for a while and sort out your finances if you can... as continuing to gamble will just drop you into deeper shit.. if you are already in deep shit go to a citizens advice centre if you have one nearby and get some help to sort out debts... it won't wave a magic wand, but it's a start...

    Maybe you need to change your style of play. Practise a new strategy in fun mode for a bit without risking anymore of your own money? Or maybe just quit altogether and do something completely different, and if you come back just deposit a small amount to test the water...

    I think the slots are high variance. I'm not really a big slots player, I just dabble in them every now and again, preferring table games.

    I've only been a member of 3Dice for a few days but my experiences of the games so far have been good.

    For blackjack what strategy are you using?

    All blackjacks online are streaky I have noticed. Sometimes they seriously suck, and you can't get a win in edgeways, cause the dealer seems to get good hands pretty much constantly and you're always getting dealt crappy low hands like 15/16. When you're in this situation the only thing you can do is lose. It is frustrating and painful to be sure.

    Don't use martingales, you can't beat any online blackjack with those, because it is quite common to lose more than 7 times in a row every session, and using martingales will either cause you to hit table limits or lose your entire bankroll. If you use a martingale only use a 4 or 5 step one and then bail out if you don't win...

    It is better to use a strategy that sticks with the minimum bet when you're on the losing streak, and then up the bets on the winning streak, this doesn't always work, like today it went pear shaped for me... but I find it works better than the martingale. I have lost using this strategy also but at least the losses aren't so big.

    Blackjack is a fickle game. I have noticed sometimes you can lose 11 games in a row, win 2 and then lose another 5 in a row, win 3 then lose 8.... which makes it impossible to win with any strategy. Unless you have ESP and bet extremely high when you know you're going to win. Sometimes with blackjack nothing works and its best to stop altogether and leave well alone or you'll end up losing everything.

    If you find any strategy isn't working on any game, it is best to set yourself a losing limit, for me it is roughly $25 and I also set a winning target for me to make +$25... whichever I hit first I stop. You probably like to place larger bets than me, so I don't know what your target is... but if you hit either the negative or positive target stop... this is hard, as often it can spoil the enjoyment of playing, but is safer.

    I am a low roller at the moment, as I am out of work and due to chronic illness can't afford to go crazy with my bets... but even as a low roller when I lose it hurts as I only have one stack to play with which I won't be replenishing unless I find a treasure chest...

    All I have left at the moment is what is in my neteller account and some savings (which aren't for gambling, they are for keeping us alive whilst I pray for some more work.) Once all the funds have been bled dry from my neteller account, that's me done. No more gambling... I will live off my savings from that moment on and if I don't find work during that time, once my savings are gone, I will have to go on the street and try busking again...

    incapacity benefit isn't enough to support a family, due to stupidly high food prices and energy bills... at the moment playing blackjack is keeping me floating... but once my neteller account is empty, which I guess will happen sooner or later then I will be dropped in shit creek without a paddle...

    If gambling is bleeding you dry is best to stop, or only play with a set amount you can afford each month. This is also stuff everyone knows, is just hard to put it into practise, but we all need to, else it is easy to slip into financial ruin.

    Maybe just play in fun mode to practise new strategies or play the free tournaments... so you can play the games but without risking anymore money... and practise out new techniques... till you feel confident enough to try again... but don't risk large amounts of money if you do, it isn't worth it...

    My brother told me about a friend of his who got drunk and played blackjack online one evening, he started placing stupidly high bets and ended up losing 7000 in one night. He is an accountant, you would think he would know better :p

    Hi Fleur,

    That is absolutely brutal .. :eek2: .. at 3.85/spin its a bit going for gold (and striking mud instead), but it still remains very unlucky. I'm going to see if there's something extra I can do on top of what I did earlier today. Be a bit more gentle tho, with only a couple of hundred of spins, the risk of not hitting those features is not unrealistic.

    I'll be keeping my fingers crossed,

    Kindest Regards,

    Enzo

    ..have you thought of having your deposits limited? i had mine set to 1xxx.00 a week and it has worked well for me, one of the best things enzo ever did for me.i have been where your at but not to the point of killing someone or killing myself or the suicide thread awhile back, gambling might seem to be a problem for you if you continue to have these thoughts, bitching and moaning over losing , i can relate to and thats normal for any human being , i wish you would think about the option of limited deposits, you can still have fun and win, it makes you think more clearly about how much to spend and how you may want to place the size of your bets. i mean no disrespect at all toward you just some advice that might be helpful in the future...........laurie

    Hi Fleur,

    I know that feeling although not to that extent or amount. Please hang in there and don't succumb to "the chase" OR the loss. (as I had told my boys when we had hard times.. all the money in the world couldn't buy the love we had.) and it may seem like no condolence right now, but I hope you see that is true. You are too precious!!! As is any human life, to succumb to a huge loss like that by taking your own life.. Please do not do that!!

    I know how it feels when you think that "hit is coming" and "your due".. but it never seems to come. You can see the screen shots in the winner screenie thread and think :rolleyes: "wow, that's one way to make alot of money.. looks easy"..... but it's not.

    I have found when my luck turns sour at one place, I take my small ($20 - $25 deposits) elsewhere. And so far I am doing very well! :thumbsup:
    If you are now in a situation of financial hardship because of your chase, then lay low for a while because gambling is not the solution to financial problems. IMHO Most of the time it's the cause of them!!!

    I truly respect you immensely and want you to hold on and remember that when the fun is gone it may be time for a break, or time to move on from there.
    I myself ONLY play tourneys there, now.
    You have given much needed intelligent advise to so many here. please remember that! :thumbsup:

    Feel free to PM me if you'd like.. my shoulder is huge (for a little skinny woman) but I have no problem letting anyone in need cry on it. ;)

    ((((Fluer-De-Lis)))))))) big big hugs hon!!!!

    hey all of you
    Ive just received a PM from Enzo......Very much fast ENZO when it happens to ruin his image....lol
    How come you ENZO was not as fast to answer my emails?
    Vacations or what?Your vacations as per your say where done 2 weeks ago...and Im still waiting.
    Anyway I dont really care anymore.....in my opinion your casino and you have being robbing tooooo much and a lot of ppl here are toooo much in deep *snip* cause of your "frendly" casino...whatever they have lost enough and I will make sure you are not going to make as much money as you did sofar.
    The only reason you were so prompt to PM me was ...cause you knew I was going to do what Im doing right now.....
    Anything else you want to tell me?
    You are a *snip* ....and you are robbing and destroing a lot of ppl here.......just in case you have my address if you want to make me a *snip*....have I been clear?
    Bye all.

    I said they were bad last year , ill try to find the thread . But of course everyone was on there side . I lost thousands there without 1 *snip* cashout , or even close to being up on any session .

    But of course everyone was saying they were great , as there are many low rollers here making $20 deposits an 3dice was letting them win 50 or 60 bucks and paying them quick to make a name for themselfs .

    Those are terrible slot stats!

    Is that average for the amount of spins, seems you would hit a very nice win with 811 spins.

    ............kakata, i know your upset but your gonna blow a gasket if you dont calm down. everyone that plays at any casino is taking a chance and are adults, food , shelter, and bills should come before gambling and if those arnt being met and someone would rather play than buy food or pay the rent then they have a very bad habit and need help just as someone with a drug habit, that was some really nasty language there, very unkind to say to anyone in a public setting, regardless of what you may think of that person, there are better ways to get your point accross imo... dont you get mad at me for speaking my mind.....ok?..................laurie

    Wow Kakata, you seem pretty PO'd. I do understand your feelings as well as all the others in this post.

    But Kakata, keep the bloodpressure down. Don't want your head to blow off. We like you around here. :D

    Think kakata needs a sweet hugggg. No matter what the posts are towards casinos positive or negative you will always have players arguing the point.
    Not worth you getting banned here who would i hug.

    Dear friends - thank you. For bearing with me, for sympathy and advice. Thank you for your PMs and kind words.

    I was offline for a day or to and hoped my whine of a post would get buried under newer threads by the time I get back, and it saddened me to see that instead it turned into yet another 3Dice thrashing. Not my intention. I posted this because I had a truly bad unlucky day, hit emotional rock-bottom, hated myself... and couldn't handle the desperation on my own. I am a loner in general, and living in a foreign country with no close pals doesn't help. My husband believes I quitted gambling long ago, so I couldn't turn to him for sympathy, either... If I didn't have you... life on that day would be ultimately dreadful. Thanks to you - to Mysticjoz, Kakata, lauram, Rusty, Lauri, Enzo... all of you

    Take care all
    Fleur

    @kakata, lnspin: I've given you both a ban for banned Rules 1.1 - Abusive behavior ... potty mouth language. Not sure what you guys were thinking but the foul language is uncalled for and inappropriate here on the boards.

    Max, can you explain that ban?

    Fair enough, kakaka, he went personal, I did the same, so I can understand your reasoning. Inspin said one word, used as a verb. This is an adult forum. Foul language is used but not the norm:confused:

    Sorry, I was wrong earlier. I thought the problem is me. No way. I went back and played BJ... guess what? All hands losing...increased bet up to max - again - all losing. Just all. Nice. Thanks, 3D. Now I am totally positive it has nothing to do with me, my gambling habits or whatever :mad:
