If not, why not?
I bet a fairly high amount, up to about $20/spin and sometimes more for inevitably short periods of time, usually if I get to to $5k balance I go nuts at $100 a spin etc, never had a decent win at such stakes though.
My business does well so I can afford to lose a couple grand every week, and life is pretty difficult lately so I eek out enjoyment where I can find it and don't feel too guilty about it so long as I'm not hurting anyone.

Although I probably dump about $5k a week in deposits I still don't think of myself as a high roller, you can still easily lose that on $5 spins.

Anyone here doing the huge bets? Ever get a win?

[@dionysus … I'm pretty sure there's a fair few; just not as public about their spending] Wonder why that is? Betting more than they can afford? Maybe people dislike people who can afford to waste more than they can?
I believe @Jasminbed had an awesome win betting CAD $100 spins at her local casino - and winning approx $100k. The screenshot is around if you want to look for it.

However, how much people deposit/bet is nobody's business than their own. They are not required to share that information unless they choose to do so, as everyone has different priorities in life, which is reflected in their spending habits.

Regrettably though, sometimes it is too easy to try to inflict one's own values on others, which is probably why people are reticent to acknowledge how much they may actually bet, to avoid judgemental confrontation.

Biggest highroller Iv seen is @Kroffe; sometimes I see him in the 50p range; Crazy Bear.

Don’t think anyone hates anyone who rolls high, you probably find it’s more a question of people maybe not being able to relate to it as much.

I imagine most here want to squeeze as much play from a twenty as possible so you’re not going to see many starting bets at 10.

Still get ptsd from those 50p spins every now and then.
Been a while now since the gambling devil visited me, but oh man:

I think what people consider highrolling differs depending on what kind of budget you have.
I think €5 spins probably puts you in the top 1% easy.
Like you say, you can easily lose 5k in a week doing €5 spins, and not many people can afford to blow 20k per month on gambling.

But its all about what definition you want to use i guess.
"Real" highrollers probably blow thru hundreds of thousands if not millions when they play.
But im guessing that kind of play is more common in fancy casinos over in Vegas or Monaco.

If 5e a spin is highroller, then i am considered highroller too ;). I really don't think it is highrolling . I think 20e a spin is though.

Gets mixed feelings watching Bandits mega gambles,got to admire his balls but watching him lose the final
gamble on the ladder makes you think why gamble that amount, would finance my gambling for a year,but its his money and he seems to make it pay a lot of the time,cant say its something I would want to do,I would chicken out after the first gamble.

I mix up my stakes quite a bit, usually start at £1, up it to £2 if i am getting nowhere then possibly £4 but
not for long,cant say i feel comfortable above £2, the balance drops too fast if the game is dead.
I have done £15 spins on TS2 years ago but max recently has been £6 when I feel I am on roll.
On the other hand I sometimes switch to low rolling mode, often play lil devil at 30p,no pressure and can just
chill.I get the same kick getting a feature whatever stake I am playing.
Would class my play as mid roller.

I don't know if I'd be considered a so called 'High Roller'
I suppose I average around £10.00 a spin but if things are going well I'll dabble with spins in the twenty pound range.
Occasionally I'll go max on Rhino or Monty, had my biggest win ever to date about a year ago on Raging Rhino off a max £60.00 spin which netted me around 22k.
Had plenty of big wins, anything between 5k and 15k but plenty of big losses also of course, it's very easy to burn through a 5k deposit on big stakes.
I don't always play at these stakes of course, I'm happy to play at around £2.00 / £4.00 a spin a lot of the time which can also bring big wins from time to time.
I guess the sensible thing is set limits and play to your own financial circumstances, and take a break every now and then

I've tried some highrolling, €10 upto €20 stakes, last year when I was up massively. Needless to say I'm not up massively anymore and cut it off before it got out of hand :laugh:

Before that I built up my bankroll playing €1 to €5 stakes and had some very lucky hits. And being able to play those stakes was because of wins on sportsbets. So it was kind of a snowball-effect but the snowball melted away rather quickly.

Now when I play I'm already pondering whether to push the spin button when the min bet is 25c... Playing at low stakes gives me an equal amount of joy and less stress, even if I could afford betting a little higher than what I do now I don't see any reason to. I've got a bit of a "been there done that" feeling about it.
