    Just curious about your guys ups and downs?

    For me, 2 months ago was the absolute worst I ever experienced.

    $3400 lost in a month. With bonuses and free chips its $4000 total.

    Casinos I played at during this downswing.

    Slotsmagic (NetEnt etc) (approx lost $600)
    Slotsmillion (NetEnt etc) (approx lost $1000)
    allstarslots (RTG) (approx lost $900)
    gowild (MG) (approx lost $200)
    Sports Interaction (playtech) (approx lost $600)
    Trada Casino (NetEnt etc) (approx lost $150)

    This was numerous deposits of $200 and above in these casinos. I took a bonus probably 20% of the time looking for anything different to get me a win.

    I just could not win for the life of me. 75% of the time my bet size was $.80-$1.20. The other 25% was $1.40-$2 and the odd dozen spins @ $5.

    I was honestly starting to get discouraged. Almost to the point the tinfoil hat was making its way out of my closet ;P Terrible bonus after terrible bonus. Could barely ever get above my start balance. Moving from high variance to medium variance games. Nothing was working.

    I decided one more shot with $600. So I bought 3 $200 prepaid cards and decided to try a different casino. My government casino and deposit $200 and see how it goes. If it didnt go good, decided where to use the other $400. And if I lost. Time for a break. A very very long break.

    Upswing. Thank god. Finally. I have had all these wins in a row without a loss since my losing streak.

    PlayOLG $200 deposit 200% bonus. (cashed out $2400)
    Tradacasino $50 deposit (cashed out $300)
    Sports Interaction$100 deposit (cashed out $400)
    PlayOLG $150 deposit (cashed out $700)
    PokerStars $10 deposit (cashed out $100)


    For me this has been the wildest couple of months. Ive gambled many years and its always been win some lose some. Small hot streak...cold streak etc. Not just a huge losing streak followed by nice winning streaks.

    After that bad losing spell, to come back with approx $500 profit is quite the feat and something I did not expect. When I decided $600. I hoped to have some fun maybe win and change my luck.

    Im glad it came because it could have very easily not have.

    Just wanted to share my story. Hope you enjoy the read :D

    Hey :)

    I have a budget of around £20 - £40 per day (dependent on amount of work coming in etc)

    It is nice to report that in almost 14 years of play, this has more or less averaged out to lose 50% of the time and win 50% the other.

    Also I find that roughly 2 in 3 sessions busts really fast (or quite fast) and the other offers me the reason I deposit 'Game time and enjoyment'

    I have just come through' however a horrible patch.

    Forget the averages above lol, IIRC I had 12 EVIL deposits across various casinos on the trot! No game time, no bonus rounds, no base game hits over 10x, NOTHING :oops:

    Now this has never happened since I started out in 2002/2003 So you can imagine my frustrations!

    Finally broke the cycle this weekend gone, £25 in to Casino Luck (Saturday) - £200 out and 6-7 hours total game time (not in one go lol) and then 'like buses' Next Casino (Sunday) - £20 in, £110 out!

    The 'roll' starts here :p

    Good Luck :thumbsup:

    In January to April '15 I lost over 10 thousand Euro while I won 9 thousand Euro during May to Juli.

    Many times you have the winnings compensate for most of the losses but there are times where you get clobbered so hard that you could throw your monitor out of the window while there are times where you almost feel sorry for the poor casinos because you win so much.

    Great turnaround! Thumps up!

    Ups and Downs

    Always good to have a win and great you made it back on the upswing! Sometimes though I get a bit down when the upswings just don't offset the downswing times or I feel like it's a rut I can't shake!:confused:

    There are on the couple of sites I enjoying playing on the most and I trust them/good withdrawals/service and so on but for a while, it felt like when I initially joined and took advantage of welcome bonuses and such, I only ever deposited the minimum needed and when I managed to fulfill wagering requirements, the wins would come hard and fast! It was awesome, I could withdraw my wins and still have a bit to play with but within a few weeks of membership and playing/depositing etc it was as if the wins dried up-no more from favourite/trusted games that seemed to be hot at that start without fail or even trying new games and betting methods like changing up coins/lines bets etc! :eek:

    Anybody else have similar swings on favourite sites or maybe my good luck just ran out:cool:

    For me personally it is kinda balanced really.

    I also have the well know bad streaks of luck that can last for weeks,no matter what slot or what casino I play.
    BUT because I mostly love to play high variance slots sometimes to the brim of sheer frustration because of the long streaks of dry / losing spins, it also means 1 good hit can pay me back all I have lost over the weeks before that.
    My absolute best year to date is still 2014 where I have hit so many 1000x + hits and that year I ended actually with some very nice profit overall.

    But to balance this out 2015 was not a great year and this was also they year I started to slowly change my play style.
    Be happy with smaller withdrawals if in profit,even if it is only 50 bucks,because on the end of the day it is still profit.
    Also I learned not to get stuck on 1 slot when it is cold,try changing slots and maybe even different software provider and luck might come back your way.
    When hammered by a high variance slot these days I tend to spend my last 50 bucks on lower variance Netent slots and actually this has already proven many times I could make a great comeback and still end up getting my deposits back or even end up with a small profit.

    2016 sofar not too bad,think about even on withdrawals and deposits so that is always good.
    Some casino's I am particular lucky this year whilst at other casino's I can't win a tenner.

    But yeah gambling comes with ups and downs for most of us I suppose.

    I remember my biggest hits and I sure do also remember those sessions I got slaughtered by a certain slot. :)

    I too have had downswings but I attribute that to playing high- variance games almost exclusively nowadays, hence I only have myself to blame!

    When this band of six or seven games correlate across the board it seems like I can do no wrong, and small deposits become decent withdrawals. Bear in mind this doesn't happen often.

    And when all these games go on insane dry spells it's horrible, but that's what you get with variance.

    But yeah, it does sometimes feel like your deposit is a mistake from the outset as soon as you've had your 10th spin or so, followed by 'Oh. This seems familiar....like when I busted out last time'.

    Perhaps choosing 'safer' games or just trying completely new ones is the best answer. Nothing wrong with mixing things up once in a while :)

    I make HUGE profit too :)

    Sure before much longer one of these casino reps gonna offer me a management position :eek:

    If you saw my spread sheets for the last 8 years, yet I still moan and get mad occasionally when I hit a poor session, never mind a run of poor sessions.

    There is one kind of player the casinos basically make their money with. Addicts that never hit the withdrawal button but only raise the bet. They will easily earn them enough for a good profit.

    Oi, stop that! You're.....UP on slots?? I can't actually tell what's going on here!

    I think after about three years or so I'm definitely about 0.96% up :(

    I am up overall,

    I make these sort of posts tho once in a blue moon more as a wind up for newbies, reps, tongue in cheek, no harm meant etc.

    The main reasons are

    I only ever deposit in 20's and stick to my 100 a week max budget (unless on a mega roll)

    I am a right tight git and withdraw as low as 2.5x my deposit if the chance arises, leaving very little to play these days.

    That 5 reel shit storm, together with the 2nd top 5OAK on Treasure Nile and 2 x 4-Reel wild desires with premium symbols helped put me way ahead to cover future losses

    I withdrew 2.5K from a £10 at 32 Red to 'top up' about 18 months back

    I am a jammy git

    Plus the wife helped with her 5 DOA scatters on a 0.90p bet followed a month later by a 0.90p WL!

    I also made a small fortune from a totally above board and legal loop hole with the free bingo across many sites (thanks for the ban eh Cassava but thanks for ya dosh too!) a few years back

    If any of this comes across as bragging that is not my intention for which I apologise if needs be :) just wanted to explain as requested.

    Jan this year was good - first half of feb even better was in profit up until the past 2 weeks
    where I have not managed to cash out more than my deposits. And so it continues.

    Only upside is with the deposit limits I have in place I cant go on the chase Like I used to
    so damage is limited to what I can afford to loose ........ and loose as of late I am!

    Good stuff Jon :thumbsup:

    So that 5- reel s*itstorm isn't Rolastan-esque CGI wizardry. It actually happened!

    And in true Goodfellas style, I will state that you are a funny guy :thumbsup:

    Why thank you sir :notworthy

    Yes it is a genuine hit, 32 Red in August 2013 IIRC!

    The Treasure Nile hit was before that and I was only playing win line #1, how f'kin jammy was that. £1,500 and I had to fax ID documents on the sly at work whilst the gaffer had nipped out to get her lunch, rushing that much I left the fax receipt behind, later to be questioned 'Who are Mobile 21?'

    I will graciously return the compliment in that I genuinely laugh at your wit and sarcasm in many posts, great reads :thumbsup:
