How much do you deposit?

I generally sit a deposit limit of £100 a day wherever I play, I tend to do £10 and £20 deposits, and play on low stakes (10p/20p/40p). However I feel like I am constantly relying on getting a mega hit somewhere to make the bankroll last. Whereas if I was to deposit say £50/£50 or even £100, yes I have a bigger roll to start with but then if I lose it all which often happens, I can't re-deposit. So I end up just doing small deposit after deposit in the hope of hitting something.

So what do others do within their limits? Just deposit £10/20, and if it's gone then just leave it for another day? I don't mind losing the money as such, but want to actually get some game time from my deposits and it just feels as though the games know you are waiting on that mega hit. I'm sure in the background they take into account how much you have deposited, or started the game with. No different to fruit machines, toy grabbers etc, they need to take in a certain amount before paying out.

I haven't made a deposit on slots in months, but when i was a regular player 20 quid was my max.
My rule was to always withdraw my deposit if i was lucky enough to make it back, and continue with the leftovers.

Ha, I tried this for a while, and it got boring as usually you'd hit something in the beginning that would take your balance to £12 or £14, then you withdraw the tenner and left with £4. All in the space of 5 minutes! :cheers:

£10 / £15 / £20, stakes 10p-20p

Stakes increase (slightly) if winning (what is winning Jon :what:)

Usually do deposits once all out goings and bills are cleared and frequency depends on affordability.

Make the odd extra £15 - £20 deposit day or two following a withdrawal (...again Jon, what is one of those :confused: )
I second this, This is exactly how it works for me

Most of my deposits over the last several years have been €/£400 at a time. (I can't remember why I ended up with the 400 figure!)

BUT... that doesn't mean I'm a "high-roller" as I only do 2 deposits per month max, and often go for months without depositing at all.
I don't know why, but I find the thought of doing loads of smaller deposits just silly and time-wasting.
My usual bet size is around £2/spin, but can be higher or lower depending on the variance of the slot I'm playing.

Depends on the day, some days can be only $50 or $100 and some days of being reckless can end up in deep 4 digits.

The days of $0 are pretty rare.

A lot of it also depends if withdrawals are on the way from other casinos or not, tend to be a lot more reckless at these times aiming for the moon.

There is also no magical number for deposit size and $50, $100, $150, $200, $250, $300, $400, $500 and $1000 all occur at different times.

Question is though do you ever think deposit size can be related to the chances of winning? Obviously the more you deposit the higher the chances of hitting something, but I mean depositing say £100 vs 5x£20's ? Playing with a relatively small bet size. Certainly if the theory that each game session is random it shouldn't matter....but to me it seems most slots need a certain amount of playthrough to warm up.

£25 a day for me - if I hit £50, then the £25 comes out and the rest is "play money". More often than not, the £25 doesn't last too long even on 10p/20p/25p stakes, but occasionally I get a decent amount of play time!

I deposit £10 at a time but re up countless times over the course of a session so I would probably be better doing the whole wack in one deposit. My gambling budget is £250 per week as that’s what I can comfortably afford to lose But sometimes I go over the budget chasing

Either £100 or £200, i play games the same way some of the streamers do - I.e on a bonus hunt.

Will play through the deposit on min stakes, so 10p and 20p spins, and "save" all my bonuses til the end. I then play them off, and withdraw whatever i finish with, which is usually between £140 and £225..... with the odd decent win thrown in for good measure

If it goes shit from the start, and after £40 i've only got a couple of bonuses saved, I will play them off and walk away for the day.
