Hello!
When I check the winners screenshots, I always wander how you can reach so big numbers, like 250-500 dollars or more. Do you deposit more than 100$ and start with high bets or do you deposit small amount like 25-50$ betting the same high and being very lucky to hit big in two or three spins?
I always deposit 50$ or 25$ and I usually burn everything in very short time:eek: , no matter if I change slot, if I change casino, if I bet 0,45 or 0,90 (like I always do). For example if I deposit 50$, the maximum I can normally get is a 40$ or 50$, after that if I continue I lose everything.
This period has been really really dark for me, just would like to know your secret:notworthy Just lucky??

Hi siilix!

Luck has to be with you, I guess. Proof in point - if you look at the Winners Screenshot threads, there are two posts I made recently - one shows me hitting a big win on my very last spin, and another on the very first spin after entering the casino.

Most of the time, I am not this lucky, of course. Sometimes I lose very quickly - other times I get a series of small runs but end up losing my deposit anyhow.

But, as I have proven, you CAN get lucky.

And for the record, I *always* deposit $50 each time.

Better luck to you!

Spear is right it all comes down to luck.

You'll notice over at screen shots my last big wins. Before I had that super run I was down to playing 18cents a spin, (was down to $10) I got lucky with the free spins on Ladies Night. I got 7 lots of free spins in one session (105 freebies in all). Hence at 54 cents each free spin. I got that up to around $350 or so. Then I upped my bet to $2.25 and then kept upping my bet on each good win till I hit $22.50 a spin. I cut that back fast though.

I figure once I get my $'s back then I'm playing with thier money. If I get a good run then I up my bets accordingly. If I win cool if not then I cash out with a little profit on the side.

yeah.. you are right guys!That's why I've decided that for a period I will take a break from gambling. When it is The Lucky moment there is no need to continue depositing, it just comes in easy way when you are not waiting for it, at list in this way I won a jackpot in a casino:D , but now I am pushing it too much and the results it's been a lot of kick in my ass.
So let's say I will be just happy watching your screenshots, try to win much!:thumbsup: it is always so exciting to see those beautiful screenshots, even if not mine:)

Siilix that's the way it is. The winner screenshots are the results of lots and lots of spins and lots and lots of money lost. Don't be fooled by them - they're nice to look at, but most of the time gambling (especially slots) is a losing game. It may take months if not years depending on your bankroll until you hit a really big win. Most of the time what's on screen just sucks...

I've been having nothing but bad luck in the past 6 months or so (save for those two hits I posted today). My overall return for the past 6 months was 85% of the wagers, and it's supposed to be 95%. Let's hope I hit a big win to bring it up to par :rolleyes:

I changed my gambling habits quite a lot after I noticed it was eating up too much of my monthly income. I've set myself a monthly limit, such that I can comfortably lose it all and not worry about it (I can't say this often enough - it's a really good system).

As for my gambling style, I use progressive betting, say I deposit 50, I start with 0.90 bets, if I get above 50, I do 1.80, and above a balance of 100 I'll be doing 2.70-3.60, above 200 - 4.50, above 500 I bet about $9 per spin, and so on. I'll do 22.50 or even $45 bets if I've got more than 1,000 in my casino balance. But I always start with a small deposit, at around 50 to 200 tops.

On the other hand, if my balance goes to <20, I'll bet 0.45, and so on until below the balance of $2.00 I'll be doing 0.09 bets. Sometimes I've worked my way from a balance of 1.00 to several hundred (just like today in fact, 0.80 to 200+)

Most of the time the progressive betting system just means I'm going to lose all my winnings very quickly. Sometimes, very rarely, I'm hit a lucky streak for about a half an hour and then the progressive betting system really delivers.

Spear what's your secret?

Cheers,
SM

I usually deposit $100-150 and try things on video poker first.
If it is poor, I try the slots.
The last week or so has been awful, in all games, for me.
I tanked at least $3000 or so without a fighting chance.

It will turn around eventually, you just never know when and
how much you'll have to be down when it does.

Does anyone else get really angry when you tank fast
and have no deposit limits left? What an awful feeling :mad:

Good luck to all.

Brian

Thanx for welcome:) and thanx everybody for your answers.
I think the worst thing for a gambler is winning, because after that he/she thinks it can happen all the time:eek2: at least that's me...
Slotmachine, I have noticed that you play PAF games and with success, those games have been a nightmare for me, I hit the 5 PAF icons in casino island once, (600euro), after that they have sucked all the blood from me:D but good if my money go to charity:thumbsup:
I will soon receive that kind of mail from casino that wants to lock my account for too much gambling...but what can I say, it's so much FUN:D

:lolup: Success... Well, the biggest hit for me at PAF was a Keno hit of 1,000. Keno is a lousy game anyway, never play it anymore. Casino Island is my favorite game but i've come off it now as I never win anything. 5 PAF icons in casino island???? That' 1:7,000,000 odds. Wow. I've only got 3 and that only 3 or 4 times. I've lost a lot of money at PAF in the past.

I think the smartest bets at PAF are Fisherman's Jackpot when it goes over the 30,000 mark (guesstimated >100% return, bonus game hinders accurate estimation), and Multihand Jackpot Poker at 4708,86 mark (>100% return). Also the classic fruit slot with 99.8% return with optimal strategy is OK.

Those are the only games I play anymore. I deposit only 100 per month at PAF these days. I'll wait for some biggish hit then I'm going to quit, because PAF offers no comps or bonuses.

I personally think you need to make your decision based on factors other than comps and bonuses:

1. How they treat you
2. How fair the games are
3. How promptly they pay

Bonuses should be the LAST factor in the equation because you will ultimately find that there is some sort of catch involved, depending on the operator.

That being said, I think you already know which two operators I favor which meet all 3 criteria above, plus give bonuses, comps, contests, etc.
