OK, so I am one of those sad .09 cent betting lowrollers that up till now have probably been paying the highrollers winnings.
Anyhow, I am on course to building my bank roll, so far I have invested $125 and have withdrawn $238.00 For a profit of a whopping $113.
All my withdrawals are still pending... argh!
Thought I would post here for anyone doing the same or for people that have done the same on a tiny budget.
Post here!

You are in profit in your Internet gambling experience. You are therefore better off than the the vast majority of players!

Keep doing what you are doing and visit the Kasinoking site for great advice for low rollers.

You can make money by high rolling but you need to make a decent bankroll by low rolling first (unless you are rich) but then you wouldn't be low rolling in the first place! (Hey KK do I get commision for recommending your site?)

If you are trying to get a larger bankroll by playing slots, don't bother. The variance is very high. I would suggest playing blackjack games and/or video poker. Or better yet, learn to play poker.

The screenshots of winners might show you that winners are possible, but it usually doesn't show you how many spins of the slots were required in order to get that amount. Plus, I don't know about many others here, I rarely make it to the cashout button for the casino slots. It all tends to go back to the casino.

All agreed.If you want to win on slots you have to have big bankrolls.But if you want to start with a low bankroll,try blackjack or casinowar,and may be europen roulette.Then you can move to slots and win big.

Hmmm. All my profits thus far have been on slots, since that is how I have been building my bankroll thus far. I have a system that seems to work for me pretty well :D But I also figured out a pretty darned good roulette system last nite:D So as long as I don't go for bonuses, it shouldn't be long till I get to play with the big boys... Heres hoping anyways! :D

Bonuses

I believe that taking good bonuses, and playing during all the special event days (such as deposit & play $20 for a chance in the lucky draw) can enhance the edge in the players favour. Low rollers have an advantage, as 9c play is better at extracting value from bonuses, but patience is needed. Low rollers should not look for large bonuses, as these often carry WR that help high rollers. Many casinos offer 200% to 400% slots only bonuses, but the actual amount is not massive, often only a $25 or $50 deposit gets the bonus. The WR, even if 30x on slots, is favourable since much of the money is bonus and a bit of luck can enable a profit. Also, look for decent comp schemes and always sign up to the "players club" if not automatic. This could add an extra $10 or $20 to the outcome of wagering a bonus.
At 9c a spin, the 400% on $50 (total $450 at 30x WR) gives $13500 WR or 150,000 spins. At 1000 spins an hour this is 150 hours of solid entertainment for $50, and every chance of getting the $50 back or winning.
Some casinos offer low bets on other games too. The VP at some MG casinos in the Casino Action group allow a 1c coin on the 4, 10, 50 and 100 hand variants, which allows 20c per set of 4 hands on the 4-UP, with the Royal Flush paying $40. Blackjack, 3 card poker etc can go down to 50c. There are other casinos that take this to new lows, with 1c Blackjack mentioned in the forum.

In terms of how well you have done, it is not the absolute amount, but the profit relative to the deposits. Winning $20 from a $10 chip is better than winning $1000 from a $1000 deposit in terms of percentage gain. The big payouts often are a result of heavy spend per game or spin, and represent payout, which is not necessarily an indication that the player is ahead by that amount in the overall session.
