Not a black & white answer either! In fact, I reckon it's a load of old tosh!virtualted said:Can only tell you stats from here. Yes the average player who is looking to play and just play does average upwords of 60x play through before losing balance. Players who are cashing out who have made 40x play through very small less than 10% of cash outs. You need to remember that on some slots and most of the video poker that are paying out 95-99% if you have just a few minor wins and you are not looking to cash out you can strech your play to 70-80 play through. RTG had the bonus set so player could see when they reached play through and it was a large % who did make the play through but from say a 100.00 deposit they might have 30.00 in account after playthrough. So most players would continue to play until they could cash out over there deposit amount or when they have a zero balance. So if you are just churning the money, than there is a great chance of making 40x play through. I am not sure if this helps or not, because it is not a black and white question.
I often do 15 - 20 x WR in a session, but 40x would take me about 5-6 hours!
If it was slots only, it would be 5-6 days!
I'm always curious what people's average bet size is compared to original bankroll.mitch said:You need to bet bigger!
It would typically take me about an hour to play through a 40* WR.
Your expected value remains the same, bet size notwithstanding, all that alters is the variance but don't forget this cuts both ways, you win more just as often as you lose more.
I can't bet big - I'm too chicken!! (I hate losing!)mitch said:KK
You need to bet bigger!
Oh by the way, I hope you have made that bet on Bolton, need your help badly on this one KK.
Hi ClaymanClayman said:I'm always curious what people's average bet size is compared to original bankroll.
Sounds like you play with only about 10 units in your bankroll. Would that be close?
Don't forget risk-of-ruin also changes with fewer units in bankroll so you don't really win just as often as you lose. About half the time you went bust, you would have recovered past that point had you had a larger bankroll.
So, while ending down 20 units in 400 hands might happen say 20% of the time, your chances of busting before you get to 400 hands is about 40%.
Each to his own of course but bigger isn't always better.

The average person goes bust before wagering 40xbankroll.realwtfsup said:I have seen this claim on many casinos T&C pages. Some even claim the average person wagers 40x in a single session.
Is this true or a myth?
edit: This is one a single deposit.
Not your usual immaculate logical self here Clayman. :notworthyClayman said:Hi Mitch
I only brought it up because you said you played 40X in about an hour which isn't possible with an average bet of 1/60th of bankroll so it made me think you had alot fewer units in your bankroll.
I want to but I can't!mitch said:(If you are reading this KK, obviously this doesn't apply to you so start betting bigger you big pussy. )
I didn't mean you couldn't play 40*bankroll in an hour, just that no one can with an average bet size of 1/60th of bankroll, unless one can play 2400 hands an hour.mitch said:All depends on the initial size of your bankroll and the size of bonus you are playing for. As an example played for a $50 bonus yesterday and completed the 40* WR playing approximately 170 hands in about 40 minutes.
Well how about $60 then!Clayman said:I go away for a couple days, come back, and suddenly we have KK betting $50/hand?!. What's this world coming to? Is there nothing we can rely on?I'm afraid the sun may rise in the West tomorrow.
