    Do you deposit because you fancy a flutter on [insert favourite game here], or do you have some cash set aside to play and then just go where you "feel lucky"?

    Just curious about how we all think when it comes to depositing. Do you plan anything at all? I'm quite rigid:

    I find myself depositing, for example, £90 to play 100 spins on Immortal Romance @ 90p spins, then I'll see what my balance is afterwards and decide whether to continue playing that game, or move on. Where a NetEnt game is concerned I'll do the same (deposit enough for 100 spins on my target slot) only I'll play on Auto because they don't have spin counters and it annoys me :D
    I probably sound weird. I do put a bit of thought into depositing and the reason behind it.

    At the moment I tend to deposit just because I want to play a certain game, so absolutely, yes - I'll play a game sometimes for a couple of weeks or more at a time until it gives me a super hit, then either move on to something else .. I've actually been playing Great Blue (playtech) almost exclusively for about 6 weeks now because although I've had a tonne of great hits, I still haven't had either (a) A single hit over 1000x bet, (b) a full line of wilds or (c) a bonus hit with at least 3 reels fully wild at 10x free spins, all of which I'm determined are coming my way sooner or later :)

    How often do you find yourself walking away with a profit, or even hitting the feature, considering your only depositing enough for 100 spins? Must be pretty volatile?

    When playing a penny at a time....


    It is very eAsy for anyone to play the same game for weeks when the bet is one penny.

    But when playing 90 cents like original poster, it adds up fast.

    Not really - if I have restrictions, the pyramid is kind of defined, foremost, by who is accredited. After that hurdle, then generally, are payments prompt?, which narrows the field further. Then, I consider my own experience with a casino, regardless of anything else. Lastly, I consider the type of software because sometimes I get tired of the same games.

    I will say that if a new game has come out, I may decide to deposit to try it out for a couple spins. Some of my best hits on more recent games have been from spins spun within my first 100 spins (coining a new tongue twister there, lol).

    I like to follow my RTP in each game so like you I have set goals in mind. Also having those goals helps me to gamble within sensible limits.

    I used to just play freely but this resulted in getting carried away. Now I tend to choose a game to gamble on and my deposit goes on that game.

    I either withdraw when I've done a 1x play through if my balance exceeds deposit by at least 10% or if I've accepted a 30x wager bonus I withdraw whatever balance is when met wager requirements.

    Yeah it can be pretty volatile, especially Immortal Romance lately which is ice cold. I do regularly get free spins even with only enough starting balance for 100 spins, but like I said, I.R has been horrific lately and I don't think I've got 10x bet in over 2 weeks (I always pick Amber).
    I guess I deposit £90 because if I deposited more I'd bet higher :D
    I also occasionally deposit £60 for fifty £1.20 spins - it's just how I play, and I've had loads of big wins this way. Horses for courses I suppose :)

    I'd say 75% of the time I know what game I am going to start with at least.

    It is rare for me to play the same game for the entire session, unless I bust out early.

    I almost never deposit to play a specific game. I always play a variety of games when i play. I usually decide based on these factors:

    1. What of the few casino's that I play at do I not have a pending withdraw waiting to be paid. I'm not reversing so I want a place that does not have a pending.
    2. What platform of games do i want to play? Rival, RTG, WMS.......
    3. Do I want to take a bonus? I refuse to use bonuses at RTG so if I want a bonus, that excludes them.

    What are you suggesting? The OP should switch to a game where they can play 1p per spin? Or was this just another weird 'I'm better than you because I bet higher' post ?? .. Not that you even know how big I bet anyway.

    Ah you can't reply can you, your banned for being a PITA. Shame...

    True! What i also realized is, if your bet is 500'000 USD, and you're investing 1 Million for this game, you can only do 2 spins!

    I don't think it's weird at all!. I do all of the above! If I feel a game should pay then I'll stick with it... not always to my favour though lolol

    Otherwise I'll try something new if I'm feeling lucky! LOL

    Sometimes I'll return to a game that hasn't paid for awhile.

    Gees... I think I'm gambling lolololol
