    Ok so after I posted that 400% bonus thread I started thinking "what if I just deposit my own money in the amount of the bonus." I originally was going to deposit 100.00 to get 500.00 to play with. I wanted to see what it felt like making 5.00 spins on a slot machine.

    Well after spending a few days thinking about it I got my wife's blessing :notworthy to deposit 400.00 into highnoon so I can do MY version of highrolling. Each spin felt like it was taking a piece of my soul. I lowered my bet to a 1.25 as I felt my grasp on reality slipping. Anyway long story short hit 285.30 on a roll. Was so excited I had to come post. I already put the screenshot in the low rolling picture thread but I couldn't contain my excitement and had to post an explanation here.

    I know it's not true highrolling but it felt good overall getting to see what having a decent bankroll to play with felt like. Still not sure if playing like this is for me though. The small 25.00 - 50.00 deposit rarely seem to last long enough but I also don't feel as much pressure to win.

    There is no doubt that having the proper cash bankroll for what ever level it is your comfortable playing at, and not taking a back breaking bonus, will enhance your sessions.

    Should you click spin at that extremely rare perfect millisecond and hit a Jackpot, it would be sad if you couldn’t collect the entire amount having to jump through bonus hoops first. The slot machine doesn’t know you’re playing with a max cash-out bonus. Let’s face it; bonuses have evolved along with the T&C’s to eliminate the Advanced Player. Bonuses today have become for the most part a low roller draw and the thrill of an illusionary bankroll. I always found walking into a casino that just trying to overcome the inherit house odds alone was hard enough. Imagine how much the house edge would improve if I was forced to wager a minimum amount of bets before I could cash out.

    Don’t be fooled into thinking that having a bigger bankroll means your chances of winning are any better. Yes, proper bankroll along with proper money management will improve your gaming sessions. Of course if you hit something big it becomes much bigger with large bets. But, the bottom line is the bigger bankroll player just could afford to lose more.

    Thinking a bigger bankroll is better, is usually the sign of a rookie who starts gambling with one or five dollar bets, and eventually over the years, twenty-five dollar bets become boring. If you trust my judgment I would suggest staying with your small deposits. Bigger is better when you win, but losing is way bigger when you lose. At the end of a year figure out what you would have lost if you made the same amount of bets with $5.00 dollars instead of $1.00. I bet you could consider yourself hitting 5 random jackpots with your savings.

    If I ever had it to do all over again, I would have concentrated on poker much earlier in my life, and for gaming entertainment never leave the micro limits. Most of the bus loads of retirees unloading everyday at land based casinos and playing nickel slot machines are a lot smarter then all of us, and know how to enjoy gambling.

    I totally agree. The only bonuses I ever take are the 'first deposit match' bonuses, and only then if I can't be bothered contacting CS to have them remove it.

    In fact, I get a lot of (admittedly childish) pleasure when I enter the cashier of a particular casino to make a deposit, only to have that live chat box appear with a happy-go-lucky Rep asking if they'd like me to check if I have any bonuses outstanding..
    I usually lead them on by saying yes; the conversation is normally something along the lines of:

    REP: "Good news! we can offer you 50% on your next deposit, up to £100!"

    ME: "Really??!!"

    REP: "Yes, T&Cs apply [click here to read them]..."

    ME: "That's great!"

    REP: "Yes, would you like me to add it for you?"

    ME: "No thanks, but it's still great!"

    ME: [Closes window]

    REP: (probably) :(


    Teehee. I like to amuse myself :)

    It's ok to highroll once in a while but honestly I hope you get 'bitten' along the way as it will deter you frommaking such bold attempts in future. These things are not for the faint-hearted and could well make you become addicted.

    In my opinion this is an unbelievable post!!!

    As long as there are no trappy max cashout rules and you read the terms and conditions properly then bonuses are a wonderful thing. I like to use what I call the OPM method - playing with other peoples money.

    Why highroll on your own cash when you can do it on someone else's?

    Hey it's a free country and bonuses are not for everyone. But KK seems to do OK on them :thumbsup:.

    I say highroll on a bonus but lowroll on your own money. That way you get the best of both worlds.

    It wasn't so much that I thought having a bigger bankroll would be better than my normal small bankroll, it was more so that I wanted to experience what it was like to have a large bankroll to make crazy bets with. I went in knowing that I would probably lose the money, talked to my wife about it, knew we could handle losing the money, knew all bills were paid, and knew our savings account was intact.

    I might be new to the online gambling thing but I'm not new to life, and have a decent bit of common sense. At least I think I do :rolleyes:

    On a side note: Ended up switching to blackjack a few more times and turned the money into 1K (most big hits were slots though). Put in a ACH request for 800 and left the rest in to play with.

    side note: this post wasn't meant to be rude. just explaining my actions....
    side note x2: excuse grammar and spelling.....

    Well argued. I just hate the thought of hitting a monster right at the start of a session (when I'm tied to a bonus) and then trying to get through the WR before losing the lot.
    Happened to me recently on Mr Green - I deposited £150, was given £150 = £300, then peaked at £3000 before losing half of that trying to play through. Irritated the life out of me, but nothing I could've done about it.

    You deposited $400 of your own money and withdrew $1000. You might not have withdrawn on a $20 deposit when you had $50, because of the ways fees eat it.

    $5 spins are pretty big on a $400 deposit, especially at RTG, although some slots are lower variance than others.

    I like to take some bigger spins when I'm ahead, but it's hard to lower your bet size after you lose.

    If you get $100 ahead, say I'm gonna spin $50 worth of spins at $3, and either go up $100 (or plus), or quit when you lose $50. If you win $200, change that bracket to I'm gonna go up $100, or lose $100.

    You get my drift.

    It is actually possible at most casinos to make a withdrawal while ahead and leave some to play on. That was a really good piece of advice I got from a member here, think it might have even been Diamond Geezer.

    I've actually had a lucky streak lately, some of it with bonuses. One of the advantages to a bonus is to play on after your cashout point because you still have wagering left to complete, and hitting a second or more win.

    I know I should lower my bets and grind it out, but I get impatient and bet largish ($1.50 - $2.50) to hurry through a WR.

    The times it works are more memorable than the times it doesn't.

    Maybe I should just edit or write one post, lol.

    If there's no WR involved, you can spend part of your $$$ on high rolling and most of it on low rolling.

    I still go by bus to B&Ms, and I usually allocate 20% of my budget to high roll. So if I bring $100 for a day trip, I go straight with $20 for two spins on a two-coin $5 machine.

    Even a modest 20X win is $200.

    5x win, I might spend it back.

    The more you bet, the more you lose. Plain and simple. Keep it entertaining, and within your budget.

    If a Friday night at home with $50 in a casino and some drinks at home instead of $80 plus cabs and sitters to go out is fun for you and the missus, consider it that, just fun.

    Winning is just a plus, not entirely the goal of an online deposit.

    I need to employ your method. I have a problem with staying with my original bet size too long, instead of having those type of set limits of how long / when I will use a particular bet size before lowering/increasing it.

    I think I fly by the seat of my pants too much when I'm making my bets. At least that's the case when I'm playing slots. I think I'm a bit more careful when I'm playing blackjack.

    Interesting as I do the opposite - if I only want to deposit $40 I will look to take a bonus so I have $60-$80 to play with and playthrough then isn't huge. If I want to deposit a couple of hundred then I want it to be no strings so if I do hit something good early I can withdraw a chunk then continue playing.

    Each to their own! :)

    Perfect example of when I take a bonus - Me + Wife + Beer + Wine + $50 + Bonus Relaxing night in.

    If we win GREAT! If not its a cheap night in and if I get her drunk enough then.....

    Highrolling once in a while is fun, I cant do it atm but i did it back in january after i hit the friut fiesta jackpot at 32 red . I wouldn't be able to do it any other way ,as i try to limit my deposits to 100 a week max.. I hardly ever play with bonuses , actually never got lucky enough to clear them.
    That month, I withdrew 80% of the jackpot and high rolled with the rest. It was fun money lasted like 2 weeks before I lost the rest but it was fun.

    I deposited £1500 @ Ladbrokes way back last year and played VP at £25 a hand (this was before I started playing Video Slots). I went as 'high' (lol) as £1550, and right down to £250 before building back up to £1200 and withdrawing.
    It was fun getting £225 for a Full house, but not so much fun when you realise it's still only bet x 9 and disappears quickly :(

    What I did find was that the VP didn't play any differently to my normal bet (£2.50 per hand). Although a house was my biggest hit. Would've fainted if I'd hit a royal :eek2:
    It was indeed fun.

    For me and from my 1st hand experience of high rolling, the slots would basically tell you when to go for it, ie:- you are playing one of your fav slots and you get a nice hit, so you raise the stake, it happens again, rinse repeat, until it levels out, this aspect used to be the MGS theme tune for get ready m8ty win streak incoming, your balance would go from say 100-200 to 2000-2500 in a matter of minutes, these streaks were so goddam awesome you just knew when you had hit one, you could either sit and stay at one game and hit several nigh on consecutive hits or swap after having a good hit to the next game, a few examples........

    Level up poker notice the time stamps.....

    Oh, x4 wilds..

    First Time Trying To Highroll: x4deuces.jpg,Jul 14, 2011

    Is that a sign of a MGS win streak?, let`s raise the stake and see, after playing max stake for a few hands I dropped it then boom, this happened....

    Damn, why didn`t that hit the top line:(.

    First Time Trying To Highroll: deucesRF.jpg,Jul 14, 2011

    Top line you say..np ;)...

    First Time Trying To Highroll: deucesRF2nd.jpg,Jul 14, 2011

    My balance rose from £31 to £1553 in around 4 minutes, I would pretty much guarantee when you were gifted with one of these *IT`S YOU* win streak chains, the software had decided you would win <insert random amount nominated by the RNG God`s here> anyway possible you chose to reel in your windfall, it would amass the allotted amount no matter what, these times my friend were the best times to high roll, believe me, ask anyone whom played at MGS casinos pre slot tightening and feature returns nerf, and they will all tell the same story, okay you still get these win spikes nowadays but they are nowhere near the awesomeness they were at a few years ago, as far as MGS or any software High rolling goes, I think the world recession and US gambling restrictions has destroyed the high rolling aspect due to a heavy loss in revenue, which has had a terrible knock on affect across the whole payout structure.

    Look at some of the Jackpot`s these slots pay nowadays, TSII - a return of £2430 per .30 stacked, to name but one, not many casinos could suffer a few maxed spin cost x5 wild storms hits in the same day/week etc.

    Just my personal opinion here but I think the day of the high roller has gone (for the time being at least), a last screenie for now, (I did dig out loads to post here, but apn i`ve drifted somewhat lol) and my biggest ever single spin slot win.....

    First Time Trying To Highroll: Biggest ever single slot win.jpg,Jul 14, 2011

    And probably the last time I felt somewhat confident of high rolling with a steady return and still high hopes of a good hit, have tried since, but jeez, it just went through my balance quicker than an ex and her divorce lawyers:eek:
