    Hey guys,

    I've been gambling for many years and I've won over more than $50,000. But it seems that I can't get to save my winnings. It's always being spent or donated back to the casino!
    Any of you guys manage to win and save and invest? :)

    I have seen a few threads at CM where people have posted their new cars bought with winnings, but like most gamblers I typically end up ploughing mine back into the casino.

    There is the odd occasion where I have treated myself or someone I care about.

    Yeah, I have in the past used some of my greater winnings on buying things, but it has been a long time since I have had a very decent win , so now it mostly ends up back in the casino :)

    Although I am planning on buying a few new things once I have won the Mega Fortune jackpot :oops:

    When I played land base casinos I have invested my winnings on a new car/trips. but playing online I really havnt infact mad at my self as this weekend had the best playtime in months on lucky nugget got a 25 deposit up to 1700.00 played for 5 days cashed out but only to reverse and loose it all. I think I know with me some casino holds your money to long and to many of us and only our own fault reverse it. I should of took the 1700 when I got use 1500 for other things like bills and save 200 for casino playing next week, that what is in my mind I always say but it never happens.
    It is great to see/hear stories of players that keep there winnings. Foresure next time I will:confused:

    When I win significant sums, I do buy things with them. This year I had solar PV fitted after a big win. In a way, this is a 25 year investment due to a government backed "low carbon" scheme because I am paid by the government for generating my own electricity. On top of this, I buy less from the energy company, and even get to sell them my daytime leftovers. It is similar to buying a bond that pays around 10% per year on the capital invested for a fixed 25 year term. The payments are also index linked to inflation, so rise every year we have general prices going up. The panels are far too big to fit through the monitor when I have casino banking open so they cannot be donated back to the casino. An earlier significant win allowed me to pay off the remains of my mortgage early, and also get out of the endowment shortfall trap that hit many mortgage payers.

    This year, there is still a fair chunk left to spend, and this is separate from the chunk in Neteller that is available to be donated back to the casinos. Much of it is earmarked for a garden room extention to the rear of the house, and another big chunk has been invested into the UK's ISA investment scheme, a means to hold limited investment each year completely tax free, and to provide a bail out fund should any disaster strike.
    I have also bought myself a top of the range laptop, and one niece a mid range laptop for college, and about to buy another niece something similar for university. I could do with a new desktop gambling PC too, and will probably be getting that this Autumn. New bathroom and kitchen is also planned.

    It is the smaller wins that tend to find their way back to the casino over time.

    After VWM's large investments I almost feel embarrest to say that I did buy a new wonderful computer for my winnings last week.
    I have also paid my bills with it and bought a lot of small things that I wanted.
    It maybe wasn't so large comparing to other winnings, but to me is was a lot.

    I have also played some of it back, and will play more. I have to, because otherwise I can't win more:D

    Same here. It's a question of having a good think about doing all those expensive things on my personal wish list that would normally be too expensive to consider as anything but a dream.

    If I hit REALLY big, I would buy a bigger and better house, on a decent sized plot of land. Nothing high maintenance unless there was enough left over to "get someone in" on a regular basis. I could park by my front door, rather than fight for a space in the block. I could even have a camper van without worrying where the hell I could keep it. I would then either sell the current house, or rent it out as an investment venture.

    The dream is to hit something like the Mega Moolah right out of the blue, and suddenly have multiple millions to spend.

    Before I stopped playing I had a couple nice wins playing Tally Ho. I paid off some bills, bought a new tv (which is dusted daily, very rarely turned on since I seldom watch tvLOL) and made some needed small household repairs.

    My only investment in the last few years has been on a college student. So far the best payoff has been acceptance into graduate research at a top university. Of course that means the student who has also worked since high school is still in poverty :)

    The good thing is that it is in a rare field that blends science/tech and should yield a good future and job. Then I will be a very happy investor and can start spending my winnings and any other money on ME.

    I have had a few nice wins from which I have managed to buy a couple of things..

    Got about 3 LED 3D TV's - the biggest is about 52inch (I plan on buying a bigger one soon), Laptops, Sound Systems and other gadgets...

    Looking at another 2-3 Desktops to permanently hook up to each LED TV as a Media Box...

    On the other hand, it just wouldn't be gambling if you didn't 'Try' again with some of the remaining money :)

    I've been lucky enough to have a few decent wins, bought myself an electric scooter and new TV a couple of years ago, went to Malta and Paris last fall, quite a number of overnight B&M trips and concerts as a Platinum Player.

    If I won it, I've been able to get my daughter to accept some cash. She's pretty independant otherwise,

    I'm waiting for my largest win ever, and it will pay down my mortgage by quite a large chunk, and take me to Cuba.

    Oh, and the liquor cabinet usually gets stocked, even with some of the smaller wins. Don't seem to do that great at saving there though.

    I win 10-40 salaries once a year, 400 once. I bought a few things, but not many.

    Regarding this, there was an epic discussion at live chat:

    Casino: Sorry, nothing I can give you.
    Me: But I have .......... deposits last months.
    Casino: You had a big withdrawal too.
    Me: And I gave most of it back.
    Casino: Yes, but not all of it!!!!

    Well, I normally manage to remove 33-50% of any bigger wins from the gaming budget.

    Had a very nice lottery win two years ago, only put ap. 10% of that back. Instead I bought a nice car (nothing insane), set up a vacation-fund with money for a very nice yearly vacation for three years (only spent one of them so far), and set some funds aside to renovate my apartment (which Im still to lazy to get started at).

    Had a nice vaction last month that included Las-Vegas, the vaction money was from the fund, but the gaming-bankroll was from online slots (since the vaction fund is off-limits for gambling), managed a bit of a win, think ap. 700$ surplus - which I used for "upgrading" the rest of the vacation.

    That being said, I have also had months where I had to skip something I would have liked to do, due to low funds from gambling :oops: as on rare occations a few $ from outside the gambling budget seems to sneak into a casino deposit :(

    One piece of advice: if you ever get anything "really big", make sure to use one of those savings accounts with hard limits/punishment for untimely withdrawals, a little artificial backbone never hurt!

    I have a question for the people that managed often to win decent amounts:

    a) which games have you played? Slots? Table?
    b) which bet sizes? Mostly high rollers?

    Cheers

    I am definitely not a high roller. I make small but regular deposits if I like a casino. I prefer slots but occasionally will play Video Poker. My bets are seldom above $1.00 and that includes when playing VP. Once in a while I will be daring and bet higher but it seldom pays off. I do know I have often won after playing a long time and that includes jackpots. Usually with $0.60 or $0.75 per spin which adds up quicker than you realize. Which is why sometimes I just stick to the minimum $0.20 or $0.25 a spin and just enjoy the fun. Sometimes I actually win.
