I came to this site after years of being a poker player @ B&M casinos and 10 years of online poker.

Background is solid, just got tired and wanted a break. In poker typically would play 2-4 games at a time online mixing in tourneys (SNG) and live games.

Do you "watch" the games as you play, or let them run in the background bouncing back to when you know you won a bonus round? I am a sicko multi-tasker who lets casino run and then does email, reads CM forum, etc.

I usually have 3 different casinos running at any given time and love to be bouncing between constant bonus rounds.

Turbo autoplay with stop loss limits and then I adjust.

Do you "press' your bets when doing well or just keep flat betting?

Does it make sense to chase the big Random Jackpots or just focus on games you enjoy that you seem to be "lucky" at?

Thoughts appreciated.

Diane

Thoughts? Or am I just like a crack addict?

Hiya. WOW! All that, at the same time? :confused:

I am the exact opposite. I have to concentrate on what I am doing, and thus only play when i have absoulute quiet, and will not be disturbed. I don't even listen to music when playing............

Yes. I only play one game & one casino at a time.
I also rarely use "turbo" play, though I often use "quick spin" at MG casinos so it skips the ludicrous highlighting of each win on high win-line slots.

No. I stop & switch to a differet slot.
Good luck can not last forever - try to get out before it turns!


Does it make sense to chase the big Random Jackpots?
IMHO; NEVER!


...or just focus on games you enjoy that you seem to be "lucky" at?
Yep! :thumbsup:

Personally I am good at multitascing, but when I play at the casinos I see it as a "break" and I wanna enjoy it so I just play one game a the time, almost never autospin =)

Use Auto Spin frequently (Love it when I am doing something else and hear the Bells and Whistles of a big win or bonus round)

Use Turbo Spin occasionaly.

Always start off with minimum bet then up my stake if the slot seems its Hot to Trott - LOL (Works sometimes)

Never chase Randoms

You know another thought that has been building is how much I am growing to dislike B&M casinos when I can play poker and slots at home:

* No one looking over my shoulder and commenting on what/how I am playing a machine

* No one commenting on "wow what a win" or "wow you are betting a lot of money" or the worst........"what happened to all your credits?"

* No smoke

* No weird smelly people

* No pestering cocktail waitresses when I am sitting there with a full drink

* No drive

What get's me is the adult diapers in the washrooms and the fact that people actually use them so they don't leave a slot. Just how do 2 slots players have a conversation while relieving themselves..........."HI I'm Bob right now I am peeing myself" I wonder if people actually crap in em too.

That's just wrong. LOL.

When I play online, I'm basically glued to the casino. The thought of doing something else just doesn't settle with me. Granted, I don't play the slots unless I've gone over my "goal" amount. I do Pick 'Em Poker on RTG with bonuses and attempt to beat them. The game loves me, and if it existed in a real casino I'd be a rich man. Of course, I need my winnings quick in order to resist the urge to gamble, and in the USA, getting money has just become a pain.

I love Pick 'Em Poker. I've played in in Atlantic City, it's available in the OLG (Ontario Lottery and Gaming) casinos, and the only VP I play regularly at my favourite B&M, Casino Rama.

Maybe you just need to look further from home Glunn.

Ah, I simply must head down to Jackpot, Nevada sometime. :cool:

Fort Hall Casino (the Indian casino about an hour away from where I live) doesn't have much in terms of video poker. Just two different kinds of "multi" machines that have JoB, Joker Poker, Bonus Poker, slots, keno, and blackjack on them.

I usually only play 1 slot at a time... Sometimes i put the Autoplay on.. I seem to enjoy watching the reels spin and seeing those bonus rounds hit...

I sometimes watch a movie or walk the dog, mow the lawn, do my shopping and read mails whilst playing on Auto... :) ... Just kidding :lolup:

I always keep an eye on my games , i don`t use autoplay much . I do play at 2-3 casinos at the same time , but i pause one and focus on another .

After a good hit , i usually lower my bet or play a different game , even if i am "doing good" .

It makes sense ofcourse , but i just focus on games that i am enjoying and in which im getting lucky . I also try new games , but i never bet high until i learnt how that particular game works and what are its tendencies . The "view payout" is not enough for me . And most important thing : don`t chase RJ`s !

Well, I appreciate all the responses and have heard you all loud and clear in terms of "don't chase RJ". So I just stick to the games I like the best and hope.

Still in the turbo mode of playing at 2-4 casinos when I am playing. Nothing sweeter than just going from one bonus round to another! I always set up the auto pay so it stops for the jackpots (naturally) and when the feature is triggered so I can enjoy every bit of the bonus round.

Smaller bets now than when I first started is working out better for my bankroll management.

Thanks to all for the input and responses.
