    I lost 2k to InetBet in a week playing BJ. I swear to God I have played my last gaming of online gambling. I am also writing my senator to ask to have this regulated or even banned!

    I don't want to seem like an ass here, but on the other side of things,

    Why write and try to make it worse for the ones that do want to gamble online because of your self-control issues?

    Just my 2c.

    I'm not trying to be rude but why blame the casino? They didn't force you to play and part of gambling is taking a chance. I know I personally have good months and bad months as I would think most gamblers do.

    The only reason I could see that the casino would be partly at fault is if they didn't have any protocols in place where a user could limit the amount of deposits per day/week/month.

    Even then, it's the player's responsibility to find out if those limits can be put in place. The casino can't read the minds of players and know whether or not they can afford to lose the money they're depositing. No casino in the world is going to come to a player and say "Hey, you're depositing quite a bit. Are you sure you can afford this?".

    Hell, I've lost $4k in one night before. I didn't blame the casino, I blamed myself. It had been the money I had won from them the night before, so it didn't hurt as much, but it still hurt like hell.


    EDIT: How about changing the topic, someone? I doubt the casino sucks just because someone lost 2k in a week there.

    hmm

    I agree that there is something very wrong with online blackjack, it doesnt behave like a normal blackjack game and as know one has yet explained exactly how the game online works other than saying its from a random number generator, suedo rng not true rng buy the way so they are not truely random.
    I dont understand why there are so many people on this site that are happy to loose money, and book it down to entertainment "you allways lose at gambling", "its not the casinos fault"
    The fact is that at the moment this is a very grubby unregulated industry, hosted buy countries that are obviously on the side of the casino due to the huge licence fees they pay, so to call for it to be banned until this is sorted out is a fair call i think, wait to you have a problem with these casinos, there is very little recoarse avaliable when they decide to make rules up as they go along.
    Blackjack is a game that with some self control you do not have to loose at, I have proven that online not that i got my winnings though.
    I play because i like blackjack i dont live near a casino but a b&m casino is a far better bet than online underfunded unregulated junk that is out there.

    Just for clarification, the $4k I mentioned was at a B&M, not online.

    And I seriously doubt that anyone's "happy" to lose money online. They just understand that they're definately going to have more losing sessions than winning, and don't dwell on the losses. I guess that could seem like it doesn't bother them.

    The proper solution is not to ban the industry, but to regulate it. It's not fair to deny responsible gamblers the right to play simply because a couple people can't control their finances.

    If the industry were properly regulated, there WOULD be recourse if a casino didn't pay up. The regulating authority could step in, pay the player, make the casino owner reimburse the regulating authority, and if they refuse to do so then they should have their license revoked and/or their ass thrown in jail.

    Whether you want to have online gambling banned or regulated, it should not be because you have lost 2K at a casino. Whoops! I have just gained 2 pounds. Maybe I should write to the authorities to close down MacDonald's or maybe even ban hamburgers, french fries and coke.

    Bad luck and/or bad money management is not the casino's fault. If you lost a couple hands of blackjack at your local B&M and then cried foul to your senator, asking that all B&M casinos be shut down because you didn't win every hand, you would probably get the same response you're getting from us now. If you can't handle gambling then simply don't do it.

    this has nothing to do with regulating the industry. it has to do with personal responsibility. realistically, no friggin way to regulate online gambling. no way to even come close. ban it until they sort it out? years and years would go buy and no way gamblers are gonna wait that long. if people know its shady then dont play. cant get more simpler. no one is putting a gun to anyones head to place a bet. yes it sucks to maybe be playing in a rigged game, no doubt, but thats the nature of the beast. i spend plenty of money every month playing. enjoying it either way. made plenty of money at my job. no illusions of making any signifigant money gambling. dont care. ya gotta laugh when the ace comes up 4 times in a row on a double down. what did you expect? its how they make their money.;)

    see 1918 thats what i mean by people happy to play for entertainments sake win or lose & accept what the casinos deal out is ok, if you won $150,000
    dollars and casino says you using basic strat and a progressive bet is illegal and wont pay- not mentioned in there t&c not illegal anywhere else,

    The country that regulates them wont show you there laws or return phone calls so you hire lawers to persue it for you , I think if that happened it might take the entertainment out of gambling

    That's impressive ... two different people slamming the owner of this site (and its mods) with nothing but their own opinions about things. :rolleyes:

    You know, I'm gonna add something to the whole "if you can't handle losing, don't gamble" thing ... "if you don't like the site, DON'T COME HERE!"

    Yeah, the first poster quoted may not have been trying to offend, but you did. I'm just tired of people questioning the integrity of people they don't even know.

    lucky21 I'm going to assume (I try not to do this) that you've got a non payment issue regarding an online casino.

    If this is the case I suggest putting in a PAB here:

    Gambling should be entertainment, winning is good, but it's fun to gamble. Seriously learn some bankroll management, would you spend 2000 that easily on something else? Many players here hopefully, have set aside some dough to gamble with each month and stick to it. Many people here want to make money as much as the next guy. Hell, KasinoKing talks of his consistent winnings which are definitely possible with lots of control. Maybe you can play like him and win consistently, but if it's not enough of a high for you, then gambling maybe isn't your thing. I hear skydiving gives great highs. I don't think it costs 2000.

    Spot on! I gamble online virtually every day. At the end of the month if I have lost $100 at 5 casinos, and won $101 at another 5 - I'm $5 up!
    I've had a whole month of entertainment (which is all gambling is) and not made a loss.
    That is my 'high'! ;)

    Look I am not out to bash any one our any group.

    I said the games are set to make people chase and wait for the big hit.

    The games are desinged that way, some people fall prey to this.

    Yes, you are all correct in saying a game is just a game ....and gamble within yor means.

    But...

    They are taking advantage of people in a simaler way to Alcohol and Cigarettes.

    Should their be a buyer beware befor you play, maybe there is.

    In
    fairness to Goverment...yes laugh..HAHAHAHAHAHHAHA

    One thing I noticed that people have not mentiond.
    (or maybe so I may have missed it)

    How can they afford to pay for the people that need help for their addiction, when the money is not taxed before it leaves the province/ state.

    IE ....Cigarettes and alcohol.


    At least when people gamble locally the goverment receives a percentage much like a rake to cover the cost of treatment plans in Canada anyway.

    :notworthy

    Just keepin the peace
