I am afraid i am a little addicted to the winners screenshot thread. But the thread can give you a very distorted perspective of what most of us experience. i.e. losing!

I know its a little negative, but i wonder if posters would admit to thier biggest losses?

My biggest loss came a few days ago. I lost over 700 on wagerworks slots. Gutted.

There was a thread about this recently but I couldn't find it.

My figure is $20,000. Fortunately it was all winnings generated from a $100 deposit. Where you live there's no such thing as "winning too much". Unfortunately, my country doesn't take these things so lightly, and that had a lot to do with why I blew it all. It would have taken months for me to get paid without raising some major red flags.

My second time playing at 32Red I got 5 hunters with X5 on Jungle Jim (underrated slot I think) won around 1200 which is a hell of a lot for me, I then moved on to HOHOHO & Twisted and got up to 2500 playing 5 spins. Then I went crazy with 7.50 spins and lost it all. :mad: But I did learn a lesson..i think..

Took a gamble and risk it all. That happens. Try to manage your money better. I suggest you try to create your own money manage system. It all depend how much you want to play.

My biggest losses have been generated from a small to medium sized deposit, winning big right off the bat and having the mindset that I can't lose now... big mistake.

i can honestly say..

my biggest loss is only around 30 either from a deposit, or i've left 20-30 to play with after a big win

My biggest loss is not much at all $40. I write articles on my site about how I feel when I am winning and losing in order to asses the psychological side of gambling. When you deposit $5 and win $50 you think I now have $50 I could win so much with that deposit you gamble until its all gone. You may set limits and say when I get down to $20 I will stop but do you? I write down on a piece of paper now what jackpot I reach I will withdraw at and keep to it.

Pace of gaming is important I always try to keep to the same pace so that I dont do anything stupid it is easy when $100 up to gamble much bigger than usual. Always remember only gamble what your prepared to lose! Blackjack always gets me in this way throwing down bigger and bigger stakes in proportion to my account balance until I lose it. When you get your gambling psychology strategy good you find you do alot better without any stupid losses!

My biggest was not that long ago, around 8K in total losses that night - and the worst part was I withdrew 7 of them... Starting balance was around 3000 euroes, but I was above 8000 So I could have had 8K - but blew it.

2 years or so, I ble 5K in Spin Palace one night in hard cash - pure deposits during the night! That hurt like hell I must tell you! There are no limits on how much you can loose aslong as you increase the wagering.

My highest turnaround was winning over 20K in a single day, and then losing it back again the next evening, and pretty quickly too, due to chasing through a persistent "MG Suck" patch.
Having too much money from a big win readily available can be dangerous. I am more inclined now to request a withdrawal of any large upswing from Neteller, such that it becomes unavailable for several days while it moves through the banking system and onto my cards, which cannot be used to make huge deposits of several K in a single day.
Even so, I still manage to play on for too long after a serious winning streak, and usually this is because I am chasing a higher score in a wagering tournament. My series of huge wins posted recently on winner screenshots are PAYOUTS, they do not represent me actually having gone many tens of thousands ahead. Winner screenshots are just highlights of a session, many wagers give results that are not worth posting. The screenshots tend to be of wins that are well above what might be expected, such as hitting something big during a slots bonus round, or hitting a very good pat hand in VP, such as a top paying 4OK in the Double Double bonus poker, or getting a few top paying wins on a slot while also betting high (for a change:rolleyes:).
When looking at these screenshots, look at the STAKE, not just the payout, before allowing jealousy and greed to kick in. It's pretty easy to get a bonus round of several K while betting well over 50 on a slot, far more remarkable is getting this amount from a truly awesome hit while betting relatively low, such as my 5 scatters on Spring Break for over 4K while betting only 2.70 - they hit DURING the free spins:D

Thanks, i know its pretty obvious but it is worth reminding everyone ( me in particular) the winners screenshots are just individual wins and not profits!

Don't forget you can ask any decent casino to set a deposit limit, either daily, weekly or monthly. If you do this at a Wagerworks casino (you can do it through the account page yourself), you can't "up" it again for 7 days. Good policy.

Never quite that much but I remember winning $17k at Roxy once and losing $9k back which is probably my biggest daily loss. Now I do the "cash and go" with 1hr or no reverse...that's what it taught me!

Totally agree...they are the exceptions, not "the norm" :thumbsup: I stopped posting in there unless its from a session i physically win at. Otherwise I think it's misleading, but it is a good fun thread.

My biggest loss was a Sportsbook bet. I did bet about $10k on Real Madrid to win against a unknown team. they did lead 1-0, but unfortunately on the 90th minute the other team scored the 1-1, and I lost. Bad Luck!

I wouldn't count "losses from a temporary high" in my playstyle. I'm usually deposting and cashing out pretty quickly, and I usually quite as soon as the WR is completed.

Looked through some transaction history... looks like about $2000 (spread on five deposits on one night).

My biggest loss is 1500$ USD, but fortunately I win the same amount, too.

Gambling is losing and winnings, we just have to find the best strategy to leave the table always with something more :)

I use to play with 100$ and leave the table once i got 200$ or I lost all, until now it works

lost around $5,000 in a night betting NHL hockey with an avg. bet of around $600. Just one of those nights, I guess.

Dang, and here I was thinking that loosing $35 in one night was a terrible thing.
I need to do some changing around to my budget sheet to increase that in the near future :p
