The "want our action?" thread really prompted me to start this poll. I think it'd gain quite a bit of interest, as well as make people *think* about where they stand in relation to wins/losses for the year.

And don't even think about voting for "Broke even"...you know that isn't true!
:lolup:

Enjoy ;)

Edit: If you use a different currency, just estimate what it would be in USD :D

EDIT 2: The numbers above are NET, NOT GROSS!

Hmm tricky one for me as I changed strategy in March/April and have done a lot better since. Also, I don't count - so I guessed :D

I had to guess myself, and I didn't like the number...-~$6k. :mad:

I hope this thread will enlighten some people that may have a problem with gambling and realize just how much they have lost. I know it has for me (It's not a problem though).

One of my goals this year is to keep better records! :thumbsup:

PS: Net winnings are still net winnings...it doesn't matter that you changed strategy or not :p

PPS: Read edit #2 in the OP...Those numbers are NET, not GROSS ;)

Oh drat... I really hoped no one would do this this year and I could get by without all that nasty adding and subtracting (going to be entirely too much subtracting this year). :xxx And as I can no longer access casinos where I played the most (Mummy's, Global Player, etc.) it's all going to have to come from my notes.

I'll have a few stiff drinks, run my numbers, slit my wrists, and I'll be back later on with my 'vote'.

Did I already say I really don't want to know how bad this year has been? :rolleyes:

while i finished up for 2006, I don't think my chances are nearly as good for 2007 having used up new player bonuses and without Intercasino & 32Red monthlies.

now if I can just get pinababy to marry me, money will no longer be a problem.

As far as online I'm up sh#t creek in a barbed wire canoe spearing tadpoles with a crow bar.

I'm in the hole for around $30K give or take a few.

B&M I'm actually up this year, not much, $9K still better than being in the red :D

One Microgaming:

Deposited: 51k ish

Withdrew: 39k ish

= About 12k the wrong side.

Throw in the other MG's, the Crypto's and the Wagerworks - and I don't want to do the math!!! :eek:

Ok, I'm up at some - but I reckon it's easily just the wrong side of 20K. Not a good year, and hence why I'm cutting down my online bankroll DRAMATICALLY in 2007!

Keep an eye on that Winner Screenshots thread for more .90p hits :D

I'm up about ~$40k since I started gambling on Memorial Day weekend. I bought a Mazda RX-8 with some of my winnings earlier today. I'm planning to spend the remainder on replacing carpets and furniture that the dog in my avatar damaged (I bought her with gambling winnings too), new kitchen cabinets, and whatever is left on my mortgage.

So I was walking on the street the other day and suddenly.... I get a call from a friend. Just a regular call - nothing fancy. He asked me if it's possible to earn money playing online casinos. I was about to answer him but then it hit me... a traffic light. Just a regular traffic light - nothing fancy. My instinct was to scratch my forehead and whisper a silent "ouch". For some reason he was pissed off and told me that the fact that my mother had a sex change operation should not prevent me from telling him how rich I am by playing online casinos. He hung up. Just a regular ending to a conversation - nothing fancy.
Anyway - it got me thinking about gambling. I actually did a huge profit... about $1.5-2k (I'm a low-roller... extremely low) but when you have to attend to a daily conversation with the casino about withdraw, bonus abuse, getting what they promised me, misleading promotions etc. I can't say I was entertained the whole time. My relationships with certain casinos ended up in the same traffic light.


Anyway - Congratulations to the winners!! (40k? DAMN :thumbsup: )
And to those who lost... Just keep yer smile on yer faces...

Can women apply too? :p

Hey....I'll try (almost) anything once (or twice). :lolup:

As to the necrophilia, may have to pass on that one. A girl's gotta set some standards for herself!! :D

I started gambling again in late March after 1.5 years of not gambling with the help of GA meetings. I've lost about 13k + this year online and another 8k in B&M. I've spent the last 2 weeks spending money I don't have trying to win it all back (stupidly). Oh how I wish I hadn't ever started again.

I've won about £40k this year (~$78k for the purposes of the poll)

I am far from being a bonus "abuser", but I seldom play in a -EV situation. Thus I think I can attribute (at a guess, i've not kept detailed records) perhaps 70% of my profits to expectation, and 30% to good luck :)
