    I've been playing casinos on and off for years. Although it was mostly off due to naive little old me using roulette martingale systems which lost me a lot of money. But I think that was born more out of greed than anything as playing blackjack was the game to play in those days. Now, I'd be a lot happier to play some slots and walk away £40-£50 up but I have never had that kind of luck.

    I don't use any casinos at present as I'm attempting (somewhat successfully) to grow a bank through other means. At present what I'm looking to know if what an ideal bank size should be. I'm hoping to get to something like £1000 but I'm thinking more than that would be ideal. It really depends on how well I do with growing my bank. Getting a decent amount of knowledge behind me before I join a casino is, for me, very important. Knowing where to play is as important as how and what to play.

    I at least have the sense to not believe everything I read such as, when online casino bonuses are described as a "goldmine" (maybe a decade ago) and elsewhere thinks an income of ~£2000 a day (from 9 casinos) is doable. I believe none of those, I'd be happy with a small return for extra spending money not funds for a new house as nice as that would be.

    Welcome to the Forum!:cheers:

    If you are going to play for anything other than recreational entertainment you are most likely to be disappointed. From your post it sounds like you are approaching on-line gaming like a small side business. You can not count on growing a bank by gambling and whatever amount you start off with you should expect to lose or you are setting yourself up for another hard crash.

    I think you will find that the vast majority of players on here set daily/weekly/monthly budgets for gambling just like you would for any other type of entertainment and if they get lucky and win, great, but if they lose that's fine also.

    If you are aspiring to be a professional gambler keep in mind most on-line casinos have methods set up to deter such play.

    Best of luck to you!

    I do actually make money through betting, mostly through Betfair. Which, in order to keep my betting money separate from my bank account, I do in essence, treat it as a business that way I know my where I've made a profit, where I've made a loss etc. I keep a spreadsheet in the same way a business would keep a record of their transactions.

    I do not and did not see casinos being the place for earning a living and I apologise if it came across that I do. I was, admittedly and in retrospect, misled into thinking that a small profit could be made from playing bonuses. I did not think there was enough value in bonuses that would allow any form of full time income only small profits. At least, and at last, I have found somewhere that was at least truthful about that as most websites I have visited seem to be happy to tell visitors there are profits to be made.

    We have a dear family friend that is working for Boyle from home and they're making a nice living out off betting.
    But casinos are a different beast, there is no point in building a bankroll for playing slots. It can be gone in minutes.

    Deposit some and if you're lucky you might win, but more often you'll leave empty handed.

    Most on this forum treat on line gaming as a form of entertainment. I can stay home and play online. I am happy you have learned to keep separate bank accounts for your gambling I have been preaching that for years. Just remember its a fun night out and the minute it stops being fun its time to take a break. Welcome to CM.

    There are some mistakes that are best learned by learning enough to not make them in the first place.

    If I had carried on regardless, thinking what I did at the beginning, I would have created a large black hole where all my money would go. I still have the mindframe I did many years ago of if it doesn't work the first time, maybe it will the second, third, and so on. I would eventually realise the error of my ways when I look at my bank account and see nothing in it. The only thing I have now is the occasional common sense to do some research first.

    In a way still building up the bank I use for my betting to a stage where taking £50 out a month won't ruin me if I hit a bad patch (on the betting side) wouldn't be a bad idea.
