In the thread with the BBC test there were a couple of comments regarding checking our own gambling position.

I agree and hope telling the method I use may be of benefit.

At the end of each year ( with several checks duringthe year ) I add up all of my withdrawals, divide that amount by the total amount of deposits, and that gives me a very reliable report. For 2006 I had an .848 batting average, and I'm very happy.

We all realize we will lose in the long run, just as any
Sporting Team knows they can't win them all.

If you have an average of .600, or better, you have deposited with casino money 7 months of the year, and did very well. Providing your gambling is separate.

If your average is .400, or less, you need to evaluate your playing methods, and make some adjustments.

I have used this incoming/outgoing check for decades in the B&M's, and it helps me My test score was 02. :cheers:

Well, it would take several hours to add up all my deposits! :eek2:

In 2006 I would guess about $800/month = $9,600 (Probably less)
I made $4,300 profit which gives me a rating of 1.45
Do I need to adjust my style? :rolleyes:

Don't adjust no way, but leave some, please.

Your reply was just what I expected, as in one of your posts I noticed your play method, was somewhat similar.

My question is, do you believe my incoming/outgoing will help less experienced players to see need for improvement??

Maybe, I just can't learn to be quiet. :cheers:

Well, due to bonus-hustling and card-counting, it's definitely over 1.0.

However, most of the online activity is tied up in neteller or click2pay ewallets. When and if I finally get cashouts into my bank account, there's going to be a great big spike which will distort things for months.

I think the ratio calculation, it kind of gives you a return on investment figure (be it positive or negative)

Absolutely 100% definitely!
I recomend all frequent gamblers record all deposits & withdrawals, otherwise you end up only remembering all the great gains you've had, and forget all the little losses.
In my first 4-5 months online in 2001 I didn't record how much I lost, but I know it was $1,000's :eek2:

I have done this since I started, and it does indeed put a real value on the great winning streaks that I have had. I have an Excel entry for each casino, listing:-

total deposited, balance at casino, total withdrawl, net profit/loss

I then sum the columns to arrive at totals of all deposits and withdrawals, and total profot/loss. I can use the "sort" function to list the casinos in order of how much I have won or lost. It shows that casinos where I have done so well as to be banned from bonuses are more than offset by those where I have done less well, or even badly (and get showered with bonuses!).
