    One thing is bothering me... :confused:

    I play online for a long time, sometime I win, most of time I lose, guess that are odds for playing anyway...
    Most of time depositing low (...highest deposit was 50€, never higher...), almost always taking some of bonus offers on that casino.
    Mostly I play 0.60, 0.80 / spin, hardly 1€/spin.
    Interesting is that when I visit forum(s) about online play I see people betting 6, 7 or more € per spin (I mostly play slots).
    Now, is that play of most players or it is just that given time?
    No need to say win high if play high (same thing with deposit/withdrawal), I understand that, but on forum I see 90% people playing high, don't know is that regular (usuall) play by most of You guys or just my complexes eating me inside :)

    Feel free to answer or have fun, I am really interested in how others play online, I really don't have anyone to share experience about it, my friends (and me with them) are playing on land based casinos -I am high roller for them :what: so we talk about it, nobody is playing online so I got only You to answer me...

    If youve only got 50, id stick to 60 cents MAX until you boost your bankroll, even 40 or 20 cents. If with a bonus youre at around a 100, 50 or 60 cents.
    A lot of these big hits from big bets you see are one of two things: they have a larger bankroll they're working with, or they're desperate gamblers (not just in the addiciton way, meaning, just flogging it in to try for a hit).
    If you want playtime, start small, familiarize yourself with the games, increase gradually if your balance permits, but dont cry foul if it goes south.

    if I understand you correctly
    first answer = takes a bigger bankroll [disposable money ] to win big or it makes a case for bonuses

    second answer = start with a smaller roll and think cash out @ 10 times bank roll

    my 0.02 cents

    I deposit between $50-$100 and start with 40-50cent bets. If I hit something, I will raise my bets, but never over $1 unless I hit something huge. I think many people here play small bets, but you have to remember it all depends on deposits. If I deposited $300, I wouldn't start with 40-50cent bets, especially if I was getting a bonus to make my balance even more.

    I usually deposit no less than 300 EUR, if not hunting bonuses. Slots do I roll with 1-10 EUR bets, BJ and Roulette with bigger bets.

    If you never bet a little bigger, you will almost never cash out anything big. Keep in mind what gets shared is mostly our big hits too, not our losses.

    I will sometimes pick a dollar amount ($20 perhaps) and bet within a certain bracket. Down $20 or up $50 with dollar bets. Only got $5 left and a huge WR to meet? Might as well chuck it all in a couple of spins... a modest 75x bet gives you a nice bankroll to drop back down and play more.

    With bonuses, and particularly if they are sticky or removed on cashout, you might as well come out swinging to a certain extent. If you only deposit $10 and you want a couple of hours watching the wheels spin by, that's fine too, stay low.

    I've ran pretty good bank rolls down into nothing betting relatively high recently. But they all started from relatively small deposits, and I did have a lot of luck for a stretch.

    Never chase losses betting big. Rarely works. If you can't afford to lose your deposit, you can't really afford to gamble. If you cash out some and leave a little to roll a little higher, if you lose that, you still have a cashout to spend or to play again.

    And if you do play with bonuses, please make sure you know and understand all the rules. They vary widely from casino, and I always feel so badly when people break rules and have winnings (rightly) withheld.

    At the land based casino, I usually try to start with two pulls @ $10 on a $5 machine. And if I'm not broke when it's time to leave, I try $20 that way as well. It's not worked all that often, but when it did, it worked pretty well. It's getting so many of the penny slots are $3 to $5 a pop anyways

    Most of the times i deposit 50-70 and usually take a bonus if available. My staring bet is relatively high compare to the staring bankroll but i like to get over it faster - win or lose. :lolup:

    Deposit anywhere between £100 and £500. I bet depending on the game (almost exclusively playing slots)...

    BdBA I always bet £0.90 because anything else seems to turn the game [off] completely. Likewise with the other 9-line free spin slots like Thunderstruck, Adventure Palace, Tally Ho etc.
    Thunderstruck II (and the other 243 ways slots), I will always bet £1.50 but occasionally change depending on my mood/how the game is playing.

    On the rare occasion I play video poker I will actually play at £2.50 a hand because even betting that high on VP seems to give a good run and even £100 (minimum 20 hands) can last for hours.

    Tomorrow I'm going to bet 2800 EUR on a single roulette round. That will be something exciting, the definition of gambling! Wish me best luck.

    I suspect that you are the only one that finds that exiting.

    For me and many others with limited wallets find your bragging about it a little off.
    I suggest you give it to some charity instead. That way you won't feel low if you lost, and someone will benefit from it ;)
    One way to feel better is actually to do something for someone else.

    (I might should have written this in his other thread instead, but, I was here now)

    I didn't think it as bragging. Now I know it sounds and feels like it to you, sorry. Nice detail: my actual, physical wallet is over 10 years old and blue-coloured. Quite ragged already.

    I always start out a bit high for my bankroll, and I raise my bets pretty fast as well...pretty fast you'll know if it'll be a good day or not, and if not, you might as well get it over with ;).
    The way I see it, if I'm going to win today, I'd prefer to win so that I can feel it, and I can't see myself just doing useless spins, just to ....spin.
    Sometimes...surprisingly often actually, it works out well, and ... not so surprisingly often my deposits are gone really fast, but when it DOES work, I have fun, and that's what it's all about ;)

    For me it kinda depends what I am trying to accomplish. Most of the time I am looking for playtime with a small, outside chance to get something good. I think every once in a while you have to go for it, deposit $50 and try $2 spins. One thing for sure if I start out betting small and I start winning, if I increase my bet I am going down like the Titanic.
